"IQ feed works very well, does not have all of the normal interruptions I have grown used to on *******" - Comment from Mark
"Thanks for the great product and support. During this week of high volume trading, my QuoteTracker + IQ Feed setup never missed a beat. Also, thanks for your swiftness in responding to data issues. I was on ******* for a few years before I made the switch over early this year, and wish I had done it a long time ago." - Comment from Ken

"I just wanted to say how happy I am with your service. I was able to download the API docs last week and I was able to replicate Interactive Brokers historical bar queries and realtime bar queries over the weekend. That was about one of the fastest integrations that I've ever done and it works perfectly!!!!" - Comment from Jason via Email

ver 184.108.40.206. Recently, everything in my Quote Sheet appears with a strike through it. That includes the Symbols and the numbers. The numbers still update, but there is a strike through it. Sometimes logging off and logging back on will correct it. Sometimes not. Signal strength icon is always green. Sometimes I detach the Quote sheet and resize it so that I can place it on top of a chart for easier viewing. The problem occurs whether or not the sheet is attached or not and there are only 4 symbols in the sheet. Thanks
New user with latest ver 220.127.116.11. When creating new chart, complete Context Bar on bottom is present. But after customizing or just moving around, entire bar except for last three on left disappears. All I have is the Pin/Unpin, Linked Views and Print View icons left. I have to have the zoom functions and crosshair toggle available. Clicking F2 only eliminates the above three. Auto hide is unchecked under Preferences. I think that I "lost" the bar on each chart as I was experimenting with resizing the chart by contracting and expanding the price bar on the right side. Not positive, but I think that's what did it. Phone support is unaware of any problem. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
Have installed ProphetX and had Art help me setup needed chart. Looking at Prophet and Spectrum side by side, I am confused. Same contract up on both monitors. MiniRussell 2000 is the future. Time on west coast here is 10:13 AM. Prophet shows 9:50 bar trading, Spectrum has 9:50 bar closed and 10:10 bar trading. What am I missing? Also, Context Bar on bottom is gone. Was not able to resolve by clicking F2. Box for Auto Hide is unchecked under Preferences. And one last item, current active bar on chart is completely over to right and almost under price column. How do I move or scroll chart to my left to better view activity? Scroll arrows on bottom right do nothing and Context Bar is unavailable. Thank you.
Thanks Jay. Very informative and helpful. I have gone ahead and started the switch by contacting Robert and then contacted by Tony as to the procedure involved. I have downloaded ProphetX Active Trader ver 18.104.22.168. I am only going to trade the mini Russell 2000 contracts. Right now I need to set up the screen so that I have a chart that consists of a 20 minute bar with the default settings that Spectrum has for Moving Averages of Red line for 4 bar and green line for 9 bar. Robert recommended that I only needed CBOT and CME exchanges. As for my earlier post where I stated that I like to have a visual track of the INDU, COMPEX and S&P 500; help would be appreciated there too. Can you help with this initial set up or do I need to contact tech support by phone for the set up? Again, thank you.
Been using the satellite feed and Spectrum platform for a few months. All I trade is the mini-Russell 2000. I use a 20 minute bar chart and only the provided 4 & 9 moving averages. To be honest, the Spectrum seems to be extremely antiquated as if I'm back to a PC using DOS mode. Trading success is so-so, my fault not the program I am interested in switching over to the internet feed and ProphetX software. More up to date, much easier to manuever between charts, indices, etc. I currently have a High Interest window where I track INDU, COMPX and S&P500 for quick views of trends. Is this possible with ProphetX? Would like to hear opinions pro and con. Also, since I am already tied into a 12 month contract for the satellite, will DTN allow me to withdraw from that if I go with the internet feed? Those of you that trade ProphetX, do you have two PC's with one for broker and other for DTN, split screens, 2 monitors, etc. Would like to hear about your setup. Thanks a million!
Probably a silly question but I'm trying to find out what kind of setups traders have in their home/office. I'm leaning towards the satellite feed but how do traders who use DTN's internet feed trade? Do you have one PC with ProphetX on it for the feed and another PC connected to your broker? Do you have dual-monitors set up with one for the feed and another for the trade desk (if that is even possible)? Maybe just two windows open and switching back and forth? This will help me decide whether to go with satellite or internet feed. I currently have a cable modem with download at 3mbps. Thank you for you input. Steve
Maybe I'm the one all screwed up here. I just tracked down the software by calling around and it is from DTN. It is called DTN Spectrum RT. I don't really know if this is the name of the software or a "package" from DTN. Could it even be another company called DTN? If it is, I apologize for wasting your time.
My understanding is that one of your software programs provides 20 minute vertical trading bars that have an option where you can have it include a red line which symbolizes the past four average high and low trading points. A green line symbolizes the past nine average high and low trading points. The software draws these lines over the bar chart after every 20 minute interval. The colors of these lines may be optional but that is what I understand. I also understand that this software is provided on a satellite based DTN feed. That's why I asked if this program is available both with satellite and internet feed.
Does ProphetX feature your 4 and 9 point lines on the 20 minute bar graphs?
New to forum. I am interested in trading mini s&p 500 or mini russell 2000. Not sure which software is provided in package from DTN. Same software? Also not sure which would be better for me, satellite or internet. I have 3mb cable download from Charter and would only trade 4 hours in morning (7-11). What are the prices as I cannot find them on the website? Thank you.
