Do you use the TradeStation data feed?

Do you use the TradeStation 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 TradeStation (TS) may not be the very least worst data vendor, TS is definitely in the top five.  So you are using an OK vendor.  Which is good.

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

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