Hello everyone,

I wanted to know if someone knows why the stock volume, on different data feeds, seems to be changing one from another. I have tried 5 data feeds (Kinetick, TOS, Worden, MBT and IB/TWS) and thereís big differences on the 1m and 5m (I didnít checked much other time interval) when I compare them. Since the US stock market is regulated, it should not be all the same? Does itís because some are really cheap market data and does thereís a way to know the quality of the actual data feed information?

ahhh....... the wonderful world of stock trading......

Grouping a bunch together and trading that, is a much different/better experience..... IMHO...


It is an axiomatic fact that while you meditate you are speaking with your own spirit. In that state of mind you put certain questions to your spirit and the spirit answers: the light breaks forth and the reality is revealed.
