TradeStation Secs vs RealTick Broker

    has anyone tried these 2 side by side? I was heading for a real-tick broker, but now that TradeStation ssems to have waived the software fees this looks like a real option. Tradestation seems to be like a deluxe real-tick.

    I notice that TradeStation is not ranked on the brokers list???

    Also if I go with TS does it also allow me to import other market data, e.g. say european stocks end of day data?

    I have only tested the data feeds from TS and RT side by side and found TS data quite often stale. After the results of the test I cancelled my plans to trade with them so I can't comment on any other software feature comparisons.

    ignoring the price feed, hows the software compare to real-tick?
    I am based overseas so do not really want to go to the hassle of funding 50k in TradeStation and then find out that it is not in the same league as real-tick.
