    Anyone using TDA last few weeks knows of the data issues. More than just streamer down. Major inconsistency issues.

    Been with TD since Datek. Love QT but not fond of all.

    Other than getting the feed from DTN IQ and staying with TD, is there a comparable broker/platfrom with the equivalent to the QT platform?

    Power E-Trade? IB + QT? Or...?

    Thank you!
  2. ib works with QT , though there is a bug lately that they are dragging their feet fixing
  3. NinjaTrader would work with TDA, though I don't use TDA myself.

    What? When did he leave?

    Have to reconsider renewing if that's the case.

    Ticked that's why my e-mails are coming from Harrison and some other dude and not Jerry anymore.

    TD did tell me that they did not renew QT's contract [whatever that means] but another rep told me they have no plans to get rid of QT so I was a little confused. Now I'm thinking that what the first rep might have meant was "we're dumping Jerry."

    Well, I'm guessing that's the end of QT then...even if I start using DTN feed. Who is there to do QT bug fixes and web-updates, etc. now that Jerry is gone?

    probably not the end of QT, but certainly TD API. Data is already messed up and now it's impossible to get anything right from TD via API. use to be decent free source of intraday data,but not anymore.

    Typical of a bunch of stupid high level TDAT managers making bad decisions. The only reason I have kept my TDAT account is QuoteTracker. Time will tell but with Jerry and Mike gone that may be the end of the great reliability and service of QuoteTracker. All good things come to an end! Thanks Jerry for your great service and support over the years. I wish you all of the best.
