Is it possible to get "historical" Time and Sales data?


Basically I would like to backtest a system that I have been trading live where I look at block trades of the Time and Sales data.

In the last few months I have been using a live feed of Zenfire and recording this data with Market Replay.

I tried to download this data using the "Download Replay Data..." in NT7 however comparing the live data and recorded data there are massive errors (sells appear as buys, etc)

So I was wondering if I join eSignal do they provide historic Time and Sales data for the last 6 months or so.

I have went on the live chat but they don't know what I am talking about. They assume I am just looking for the tick bid/ask data when infact I need the Time and Sales data.

So does eSignal provide this or is there some other service that provides this data?

Do not think eSignal porvides so long Time and Sales data as they only provides only 10 days of bid/ask data.
DTN IQfeed maybe provides more Time and Sales data.
Anyway I think there's no service that provides so long T&S data like u want.

Take your Pips, go out and Live.
