    Hi, Elite Traders.

    I'm currently a IB Pro user. I have the following monthly data subscribed:
    NASDAQ Global Index Data Service $3.5/mo
    US Equity and Options Add-On Streaming Bundle $4.5/mo
    US Securities Snapshot and Futures Value Bundle $10/mo

    Are these the most useful subscriptions? Do I miss anything else? Thank you!
     
  2. Depends on what financial instruments you want to trade.

    His data looks fine for him;I use IBD newspapers some. I mainly use a spiral notebook, moving averages/closing prices/open/hi/low/volume/average day volume...…………………………………………………………….. And put comments there ; printed color charts are the most fun/help.
     
  4. Well, for one, his subscription would not be sufficient if he wants to trade European equity (or anything else outside the US for that matter).
     
  5. Add the CBOE option too since it's only $1 + it will get waived with only $5 in commissions a month.
