    Anyone know of any alert software or sites that let you set alerts at the market maker/specialist level. (ie Specialist lowers bid by .50)
  2. tradestation might allow that, but I'm not sure and you need to marry them to be able to do it.

    I've toyed with bringing the data into a spreadsheet and doing conditional's feasible but processor intensive and you can't efficiently scan more than you can see in a page.

    I think <a href="">Insight/Whisper</a> will allow it.

    Thanks for your input. I've used Insight, but have been unable to get to the specific market maker level. I forgot about First Alert - have just requested additional information from them.

    I'm trying to get to specific market makers - like "GSCO inside offer" - or on NYSE, "NYS lowers bid".
