Tick by Tick software with IB

  1. There is no free tick by tick charting service for futures.

  2. Try with brokers like open e cry. They offer free charting with tick data backfill. You need to have an account with them and they provide only US futures data as far as I know.

  3. Tick charts don't work right now with Sierra Charts. They store data in 2 second increments so alot of my 500 tic bar as 503,512, etc which is causing missed trade opps.

    Not to mention IB has a flakey data feed. Just do a search on ET or Sierra Charts board and you will see lots of complaints.

    i can't seem to figure out what this opentick.com site is about...
    is this api for programmers...because I just want to view data. I'm not a programmer taking on a project.
    What am I suppose to download to view this data?

  7. OpenTick supply adapters for use with WealthLab, QuantDeveloper and AmiBroker. It is also supported by NinjaTrader, EclipseTrader, Ccapi2, tymoraPRO, multicharts, Sierra Chart, Right Edge. There are also open source bindings available for C++, .NET, Perl, Java, Delphi and COM.

    The data feed is currently free -- although you are obviously required to pay exchange fees for real time data from whatever exchanges you need. Free means that technical support can be spotty at times. Only US exchanges are currently supported.

    Sign up and try it. You might be surprised. esignal and iqfeed are probably very, very nervous.
