Interactive Brokers and NYSE TICK

Discussion in 'Trading Software' started by carltonp, Jul 26, 2011.

  1. Hello Traders,

    Can someone please tell me if they use IB to provide the data necessary to get the NYSE Tick chart?

    I have just finished watching trading with NYSE Tick on YouTube and I learned that not all data feed providers present the same NYSE Tick readings. As IB is a broker as opposed to data feed providers such as esignal I was wondering if someone could tell me if they think I would be at a disadvantage using IB for my NYSE Tick readigs?


  2. NYSE-tick from tradestation is different from IB

    IB does not provide true tick data - only a sampling
  4. James,

    Thanks for responding. I understand that IB provide snapshot / cumulative tick data.

    However, I'm sure they provide $TICK data. I'm looking at it right now. I would like to know if its reliable?
