Data and Investor RT


The data with Stage 5 has been fine. Any issue I have seems to have come from my internet provider. For instance, they were at my home this past Friday and told me my signals were not in balance. So, while my particular situation will not allow me to give my unequivocal support, it seems the data from Stage 5 via GAIN Capital (my FCM) is fine. Keep in mind, as my IB Stage 5 hasn't ever lead me to call GAIN for anything. Note, if you have a bunch of moving parts and they each have different masters, then it could be difficult keeping it all together as one, eg, could blame the other. Just an observation.

Also, for VP I would check out Investor RT - it like Sierra has a steep learning curve but could be worth it. Have you seen FT71's morning Trader Bites on you tube?
