    I'm interested in opening a tradestation 6 brokerage acct. I got the paperwork but it seems no-one can answer my question so I ask the current users. (I keep getting different answers from tradestation support)

    Can I view real-time quotes and charts for all major sector indices in the US using a tradestation equities acct. ??

    I want to see for example SOX (semiconductor), BKX (banks), UTY (utilities) etc. I think you understand what I mean. I found most of these indexes run on PHLX exchange. (Take a look at and then click indexes)

    Thanks in advance,

    Yes, you can view realtime quotes and charts of indices. The symbols are a little different than other feeds though. For example . . . $SOX.X,$BKX.X,etc.

    Thanks a lot guys,

    I really appreciate this. I'm going to fill out the papers right now.

    Just to make sure : I receive the quotes realtime with an equity acct and I have also the abbility to chart them (acces to intraday data for charting) ??

    Thanks in advance,

    Yes you can get it.
  5. Yes. You can also receive quotes for CME E-Minis (realtime) if you pay 10 $ exchange fee.
