What's a good futures data feed for QuoteTracker?

Discussion in 'Data Sets and Feeds' started by red herring, Jan 6, 2007.

  1. I am a position futures trader who is new to online trading (traded futures several years ago and am back after a long break).

    Does anyone have any suggestions for a cost effective data feed (delayed data is fine for charting position trades; don't need realtime) to use with QuoteTracker?? I've heard that IB is a good fit with QT and free if you use them as a broker, but I've been told they don't have continuous futures contract data for historical charts which I need.

    Also would like to know how good QT's charting capabilities are? Any suggestions/comments from futures traders would be greatly appreciated.
  2. Tradestation has pretty good historical futures data. TS for charting with IB for trade execution is a popular setup.
