    well, it's not utopia but is certainly the best bang for the buck. i have alot of clients starting to use it, and i got a subscription two months ago. works great with scanners, and supports exchange implieds.
  3. TASC, T2W and the "Web Marketing Association'?? The 'Web Marketing Association'???

    Sorry, but this is a joke. TASC is 6 years behind the times at best. T2W? All that means is that T2W has the biggest proportion of credulous newb retail traders.

    The 'Web Marketing Association'??? Jesus Christ.

    Try calling eSignal in the middle of a trading day when your quotes are gone. But don't call the 1-800 number... because they don't have one.

    Not 1 in 50 pros use eSignal, mainly because the product is a chronic underperformer. eSignal reps here admitted last year that they had been spending way too much time on marketing and not enough time optimizing their product. The recurring line in all the eSignal complaint threads was 'We're aware of these problems and we're doing everything we can to fix them'.

    I tried the product when I was first starting out and found it way overpriced and badly laggy. There's been nothing I've seen here to indicate that anything has changed. In particular, the pricing was ridiculous. DTN/IQ, essentially the same in terms of quality, was something like 1/2 the price. Also crappy, but at least you're not spending $200/month on it.
  4. When is Esignal going to get their bid/ask differential data cleaned up for proper Cumulative Delta volume work?

    Right now DTN.IQ is the rock solid choice for proper bid/ask volume data. Also, does Esignal have any plans for their NYSE $TICK market breadth indicator to plot with only 1 second delay from reality? :)
