    I would like to compare my 3-min chart of HANS for January 9th with various data providers.

    I would appreciate it if you could each put your chart down and specify your data provider.

    Also, if anyone has done some comparison tests, I would like to know about your results.

    Thanks !

    My data provider : IQFeed.

    Here is my chart from IQFeed...
  3. i also use IQ as my data provider... do you feel your chart of HANS is inaccurate... that their data is incorrect... or?

  4. I$land


    Yes, actually at many occasions I have found many and major differences with my IQFeed charts and other sources.

    I thought going with IQFeed would save me money but if the data is inaccurate I will have to use another possibly more expensive data provider.

    So nobody is using eSignal here ?

    Just a simple copy/paste...

    Don't even go there!

    I have used e-Signal and IQ Feed. There is no comparrison.

    IQ Feed works for a start

    IQ is far more reliable

    IQ has great customer service

    IQ is half the price

    IQ is....

    IQ is just way better.

    I trade futures though, not stocks.

    Thank you for your comments.

    I agree with what you say, except maybe the reliability part, which I'm not sure of. I have strong doubts and that's why I would like to compare. Perhaps, eSignal is not better either.

    If only people would post their charts ;)

    Here's HANS on eSignal for yesterday. Thought I'd throw in a Volume study to help with comparisons.

    Thanks !

    It seems both our charts are very similar. No big differences.

    Conclusion : I will stick with IQFeed until further proof :)

    Thanks to all who participated.

    IQFeed is resonably accurate for US data.

    Some of the European futures data is very rough bordering on unusable in my opinion.
