IB Data ...

Discussion in 'Data Sets and Feeds' started by BlueHorseshoe, Feb 24, 2004.

  1. Are you saying they try to profit by charging members
    for exchange fees?
    I think if they charge Minimal fee like 10$ and give
    traders freedom for havin their own selected feed
    isn't more fair?

  2. No, I am saying that they are in the business of selling their datafeed, so it seems reasonable that they would not want a different source feeding their software.

    As for exchange fees, eSignal does not profit from them. Exchange fees are passed on to the exchanges. The datafeeds (eSignal or anyone else) does not have the option to not charge you the exchange fee just because you already pay it somewhere else. Unfortunately, the exchanges demand that in such situation, the exchange fee should be charged twice.

  4. Can IB's feed sent to TS.7 or TS2000i?

    Check out Ensign's new IB version. It uses internet sources for charts and IB for the tick feed.

  6. Thanks for help. I knew IB supported Ensign for
    data, But i don't want to use Ensign, i need to
    use either Esignal or TS.7

    After doing some search i foumd following links:

    supports TS2000i with IB Data only. (No Esignal or TS.7)

    http:// www.traders-soft.com
    Can't use IB's feed .

  7. TS2000i is also supported by Hyperserver Lite. It's free and you can get all the symbols you want. It's better than Metaserver (I tried it before) that in the demo version is limited to 2 symbols.

    Here is the link to Hyperserver:

  8. Does it says i can use hyperserver lite to use IB TWS for
    TS.7 in on-demand mode only? Can someone explain
    what is ON-DEMAND means? Is it real time Tick by Tick
    feed from IB to TS.7?

  9. don't know about "on demand" but it can't be tick-by-tick with IB since IB datafeed is aggregated
