    Could someone recommend a software package that could overlay two securities in real time intraday... I know qcharts could do it but it doesn't seem correct and the stocks I plot seem to go all over the place.

    I,m really looking for something on the less expensive side or an ad on to qcharts. I want to experiment with intra day stat arb to compliment me longer term positions.

    Thanks for the suggestions....

  3. I use esignal and was wondering the same thing today. Can esignal do this? Can it overlay a line chart on a candlestick chart?

    Hi Lescor,

    Yes, you can do overlays in eSignal. This FAQ offers several options you can explore via EFS (eSignal Formula Script).

    Also, we're adding a new overlay tool in version 7.5, which is currently in beta. You are welcome to try the beta or just wait for us to go Gold ( early November ).

    Thanks.

    Don't know anything about e-signal....sorry

    Now about ravenquote...I have considered it but It's really is overkill for what I need. I'm kind of set in my ways and don't want to confuse myself "again".:p

    That reminds me of something I read once... a man with two watches can never tell exact time..lol I don't want to be that man again...

    I had tried IQ a while ago but don't recall if it could compare two stocks intraday......

    Anyway thanks fir the suggestions...Help is always appreciated....

  6. Why not just use the free Quotetracker? Create 2 charts, use translucent option and move èm above each other??

    I use this with BUND/Bobl (futures on german goverment 8 yrs and 4 yrs bonds)
