Medvedtrader using Quotestream datafeed

Recommended Posts

I woul like to share my impressions of the new datafeed fo MT.

I was trying it yesterday after the signup.

My choice was  Nyse/Amex/Nasdaq quotes , for 120 symbols (they have several choices up to more than 1200 symbols) 

Until last week i was using IB quotes.

My first impression  is QT quotes are much more faster than IB quotes, maybe even faster than IQfeed . Quotes cover all day long of trading (from pre to post market included) and are tick byt tick.

I was trying them connecting Trade Ideas with Medvedtrader (with the external link directed to the time and sales of the MT platform). The speed loading charts was fantastic compared with the speed of loading them with IB.

 

Considering the cost (28 usd ) , i think  is a must for those who use MT and strongly recommend to try them. The savings comparing with IQfeed are enormous.

Plus, once they will activate the lvl 2 feed service and news, with just 15/20 usd the circle will be complete.

merlin8121,

I  couldn't find any info about Quotestream, looked up the datafeed/brokers section. Using IB/IQFeed, and as you mentioned, IQFeed is getting prizy.

Any help would be appreciated.

PS I did find it in the Settings/Data Sources/Configure Accounts.

Hi!

Look there, but under subscription.  you will see quotestream connect New!.

Click the link and it will open a page for sign up, with choices and price. If you as me was using IB and IQfeed in the past, you will certainly enjoy with Quotestream pricing and quality.

Thanks for the heads up. Any idea if / when they'd add Level II & data from other exchanges, IPE to be exact?

No idea  for the exchanges:)

As for the lvl 2, Jerry said is an administrative issue. Dont know more.

But once lvl2 will be active,  Nyse,Nasdaq,Amex  with lvl 2 should cost about 48 usd only for 120 symbols (you can choice how many symbols you want). Just for comparison, IQfeed cost with lvl 2  about 140 usd (for 500 symbols yes, but who needs so many symbols in portfolio?)

Signed up with QuoteMedia QuoteStream for a year (pay for 10 months, 2 months free).

Fast backfill on intra-day and historical charts.

Impressed also with the price, 1/3 of what I've been paying IQFeed.

Hi merlin8121,

 

sorry it took me so long to reply, but I had a billing error with QS, they only charged me for a month, not the full year.

That issue is now solved, and they charged me $272.14 for the full year, 2 months free.

The option to pay for a full year appeared when I initially signed up with QS, an awesome savings over IQfeed. 

Good luck!
