    Who here uses e-signal ? I am currently looking from switching from Qcharts (which i have found to be nearly useless and very laggy), esignal runs about the same price, but what do they have to offer that qcharts doesn't ? By the way I am loooking at the basic equities package, but by taking that package would I be missing out on certain things ? For example I heard esignal has a replay feature in which you can watch things unfold in a quicker manner than they would have.

    The Equities Basic platform has what they call 'standard charting' which is very limited. The Equities platform (which I think is about $40/mo more) has advanced charting, which is much more customizable. I'm pretty sure that if you went with the Basic platform, you'd be taking a step backward from Qchart's charting.

    Ok then well i supposed I should change this post then, What do you think is the best datasource for your buck? Qcharts runs about 80 bucks a month, is there anything in the same price range as that that is a better service ?

    Hi kserra,

    Toonces has it basically correct. The key difference between eSignal Basic and all other eSignal packages is the ability to access our Advanced Charting. This matrix outlines some of the specific differences.

    I'd suggest you contact our sales group and start with a trial of eSignal w/Advanced Charting. That way, you'll see both Standard and Advanced charting and if by chance, Standard charting suits your needs, you can always downgrade.

    In the US, please call (800) 815-8256
    In Europe, please call +44 (0)20 7825 8770

  5. Esignal is very good, imo. I have the equities pkg by the year and it only comes out to 70 or 80 bucks a month. The advanced charting is good and getting better all the time. If they dont have an indicator you want you can get someone to write an efs for you. While im at it if esignal tech reads this how about getting someone to program Dunnigan Bars for advanced charts. There is a study out there call Dunnigan upthrust but I would like to have plain Dunnigan bars, red up bars, green down bars and yellow inside bars. Being able to spot those inside bars easily is a great tool.

    Scott (or someone from ESignal),

    Can you draw trendlines with the standard package? Are they saved with the chart?
    How many indicator panels? Can you change settings for basic indicators?
    How many charts can you open simultaneously?

    I also moved from Qcharts,

    Esignal basic is utter crap...

    Use Esignal Adv Charts...

    Ask for the Sumer Fall promotion valid until 31 Aug 2003 => That is the 500 Symbols normally at $185 per month, is $113 per month...for the 1st year...

    There are deals going so try that one...

    If you are a serious chartist, you'll want our Advanced Charting. For ex: in our Standard Charting, yes you can draw trendlines but they aren't saved. You can change settings and there's really no limit to the # of windows you open, aside from your PC's limit and perhaps the symbol count you subscribe to.

    If you're curious, we can always turn on Advanced Charting for you to test.
