The TradeStation Data Magician Free yourself from data vampires
I was trying to plot delayed Nasdaq futures and real time Apple data As you ca
n see I got this too familiar error message.
This utility is designed to export your TradeStation data to CSV files. This powerful utility does not only export the data, but also all the information needed to populate the attributes.ini file. Â Â This file is the one TradeStation uses to set up the settings when data is imported as 3rd party data. If this file doesn't exist then you are presented with a dialog box that requests MinMove, BigPointValue, Trading Session times and dates and other various specs pertaining to the data you are importing.Now we really to importing 3rd party data - we are just re-importing the data that was recently exported from TradeStation via this cool Indicator. See, TradeStation doesn't care about the delay in 3rd party data so we have no problem plotting it against a real time or different time delayed feed You can bust right through the may not mix data with different delays roadblock. When testing with historical data it doesnt matter if there is a 15-minute delay History is history!. The biggest problem with this is that you can't even plot or test systems using daily data, using this tool you can even generate signals for end of day system using this tool. If you can't generate your orders till 5:30 who cares the market does not reopen till 6 pm!.
This tool makes this process simple. You create workspaces with charts using your delay data. If you have this workspace open, it will update your data in real time when you set the real time flag. This means that there no work , you just load the workspaces which use this 3ed party data and it's just like using normal real time data. This tool also create a TradeStation compatible attribute file so that all the session times, point values , are set by simply adding the directory into the third party list , once you do that the data in that directory is available to use as normal in TradeStation. All the min moves, point values are all set automatically when you use this tool. For example real time ICE futures data is $110.00 a month and delayed data is FREE!.
Other series real time ranges from $105.00 to $120.00 a month while delayed data is about 20.00 a month!!!!. You can see how much money this tool can save you for only $149.00 , one time fee
This package will allow you to develop trading system using this delayed even for intra-day systems and then only turn on real time data when you are ready to trade.
