eSignal does not filter data to my knowledge, IB does heavily filter data, so they will never match.
By filter, it means either by time or number of ticks, like IB sends 1 packet burst of ticks for every 10 ticks on the market, and some others do 1 packet burst of all ticks that occurred over a certain time, say 250ms.
Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.
Need help? 1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first. 2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses. 3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make. 4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance. 5) Where to start as a trader?

Which view of the market do you feel is easiest for you to make money with...? I don't think there is a "right" answer. Everything on your chart is a filter of some sort to slice and dice the price data. Take a look. Here is an esignal feed in first picture then a feed from gain which is filtered. In the example I show here I prefer the filtered feed. It provides a clearer view to me.

Thanks for the idea. This cleared up a couple question I had about the respective data feeds. Its easy to assume that heavy filtering can interfere with some of the analytic's used for trading. I've found however that sometimes we overlook certain aspects that can be tremendously helpful.
