The put/call ratio is effective at indicating where trader interest is with respect to the current trend and can provide good timing direction for selling into an existing downtrend or buying into an existing uptrend.

Rithmic would be smart to add these in if possible. It would put them ahead of the competition in terms of Value Added Services & add many new customers IMHO. Most people that use the breadth indicators pay an extra fee a month. No one likes extra fees.
At the moment, based on various comments I've seen on this and other forums, I'm going to stay away from the AMP/CQG platform. I'm looking forward to Rithmic obtaining the internals as reported a few months ago.
I would think rithmic may already offer some internals based on the fact that Vision also offers Rtrader
as a securities platform (as well as for futures), though I haven't checked into it.
Also, for Open ecry users you can chart some internals if you open and fund an acct w/ Options Xpress, their
parent company. FWIW there isn't a minimum re funding, so you can transfer $10 (from your futures funds) to OX and chart realtime internals w/in the OEC platform.

Indeed. I have both a futures and equity account at OEC... Just a 100 bucks in the equity one and I do get internals there. I can confirm TICK and TRIN (for A, N & Q).
That said, I went to chart the McClellan Osc, and got an error. It seems that OEC does not provide advance / decline data. I also have not yet found exchange volume data.
And I agree on the put / call ratio!
TDA / ToS provides a lot of this stuff. I'm focusing on MC now, and since there is no TDA / MC relationship regarding data, no dice.
What exactly does Rithmic off now?
EDIT / ADD: And Mike, if you are still capturing input 6 months later... NYSE and / or NASDAQ stocks trading above their 50 day ema. Also, the NYSE Bullish Percent Index (BPI). I need to go to stockcharts.com to fetch this stuff. I would seriously consider changing my datafeed to get this information.
