Do you use the DTN IQFeed 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 DTN may not be the very least worst data vendor, DTN is definitely in the top three. So you are using an OK vendor. Which is good.
Since most trading firms like MLCO, BOFA, and SBSH (and most hedge funds not clearing GSCO) use the Bloomberg and Reuters data feeds, those firms do not have as good of information as you have on your very own DTN. And by using your DTN 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 DTN 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.
