Hi All, I've been reading this forum for the last few hours looking for the right software. I've identified a few software packages that I will further investigate (ninjatrader, esignal activex, linnsoft, marketdelta, sierra chart, neotick, etc), but am hoping the folks here can help me identify the top 1 or 2 that will do what I want in a simple sentence. In a nutshell, I'm looking for a scanner plus API that work together. I am currently an eSignal premier subscriber. I have data feeds for NYSE/NASDAQ equities and the CME e-minis. eSignal has a scanner tool, but it can not be hooked into their Desktop ActiveX API (which can process time and sales data). Their Activex API is limited to simultaneously scanning 50 stocks at a time (so it doesn't qualify for the scanning role). I want a software package that will return stock results based on my scanner queries (scanning all US equities), then be able to process time and sales data for those symbols to further refine that stock list to the best few to manually monitor. From browsing the forum and some reading, it seems the majority of the software out there is for building custom studies for use with 1 stock at a time. I want to do that AFTER the scanner has given me my initial list of stocks to refine. Something that can use the eSignal feed would be great, as it'd save money. I am not a master programmer, but have experience in a variety of languages and am very familiar with software in general, so the API language doesn't concern me too much. Thanks, and good luck trading.
