eSignal data feed

Do you use the eSignal data feed?

Data vendors are like politicians. There is no such thing as a good one. We all vote for the least worse guy.  

So while eSignal may not be the very worst data vendor, eSignal is definitely near the bottom. So you are using a horrible vendor. And can do much better.

Since most trading firms like MLCO, BOFA, MSCO, and SBSH (and most hedge funds not clearing UBSS and GSCO) use the Bloomberg and Reuters data feeds, those firms do not have as good of information as you have on your very own eSignal. And by using your eSignal well, you can blow them up, almost every day. A relatively simple process, once you learn what time to do it.

But to do that effectively, you must program into your eSignal the correct program trading symbols. Symbols that MLCO, BOFA, and SBSH do not even have running correctly on their Bloomberg and Reuters machines, and therefore your advantage over them.
