Esignal data and IB data

Discussion in 'Data Sets and Feeds' started by traderguy02, Feb 8, 2006.

  1. I have esignal as a data feed and charting software. My broker is IB. I am trying to trade the oil e-mini QM. I have noticed that at some times the price difference between data coming from esignal and that coming from IB can be different by as much as 10 cents. I certainly find this odd and extremely counter-productive to trading. Can anyone explain this and offer a realistic solution?

  2. Sometimes IB update is slower (<5% of the time), sometimes eSignal update is slower (>95% of the time).

    And also IB doesn't update each tick. When market is busy, eSignal can seriously lag or become completely frozen.

  3. Hey,

    How do you reference the quote you are replying to?
