Investools' Prophet Charts: "real time" = delayed 10-30 seconds?

  1. Hey guys,

    Can anyone confirm whether they also experience delays of around 10-30 seconds for so called "real time streaming data" from Investools' Prophet Charts? My broker is Questrade and the real time moving limit order feature - seems to be substantially faster than the data feed from Prophet Charts.

    NinjaTrader requires subscribing to data feeds such as Kinetick. They marke their services as this:
    "Kinetick delivers fast, unfiltered streaming real time quotes through professionally managed data centers. We take speed, affordability and reliability very seriously."

    Also - now this might be my problem - they distinguish between real time market data and "streaming real time" there a difference? With real time market data being faster?
    "Our competition charges well over $120 per month for real time market data…That’s expensive! Our streaming real time quote services start at only $50 per month!"

  2. You can use Forex charts for trading they provide real time chart and it is supposed to be a good charting software for trading.
