is there fellow members here who use Ninjatrader and Esignal data feed?
Esignal's data isn't bad (much better and complete than say IB's). However, Esignal's current API is 32 bit only. That means it won't work with NT7 64 Bits.
I have written to Esignal, but they have not ETA. If there's anyone who is using the nt7/esignal combination, please let me know. Perhaps with more voices, Esignal can get it done quicker.
It is possible to run ESIGNAL Datafeed in a 64bit environment of IB TWS, you need to copy the dbcapi.dll from "\Common Files\Interactive Data" to the JTS folder of ESIGNAL. So in my opinion it is not a problem of Esignal. I tried to replace the dbcapi.dll in NT 64bit, but this does not solve the problem.
Maybe Steve, but until now Its Ninja that have so far refused to support the eSignal 64 bit I/F that has been around for ages, I think because they have given priority (technical and marketing) to Kinetic (aka IQFeed). I still use eSignal 32 bit and Ninja 32 bit but would like to have a NinjaTrader supported switchover, not urgent though, stuff still runs like the wind for me.
Ray will be talking about NT8 on futures.io (formerly BMT) next week, you can ask him if NT8 will be any different.
