This is what I see on my Demo Account:
  • TICKA: AMEX TICK
  • TICKN: NYSE NET TICK
  • TICKQ: NASDAQ COMB. NET TICK
Please note that you'll need to have an Equities account through OEC to get these symbols though, just a Futures account won't give you this data.

Might you be able to comment on the quality of the data? I ask because I had posted on the MC board also, and I just noticed this response that this data is quite possibly filtered:

MultiCharts: Trading Software for Automated Trading and Backtesting • View topic - TPO aka Market Profile

I just registered on the OEC forum, and my first post seeking clarification is awaiting moderation...

I can't comment on the quality of the TICK data as I don't actually use it. I'd be surprised if it's filtered though because I'd think these numbers are generated by the exchange, not by the broker.

This is interesting...

Open E Cry and Global Futures Zen Trader

I was wondering have any of you guys checked out Global Futures? They have Global Zen Trader which is the OEC platform and clears through OEC as well, what if any benefits there would be to using one over the other?

I've been w/ OEC for many years and while newer here, you can find my handle on other forums.

Personally, I just go direct to OEC. I haven't found a reason to go through a middle man personally. The only reason that comes to mind would be lower rates.

I agree with brownsfan019, and Zaner's Adam offered me a good deal but the way OEC is structured I had to go through my local (Aus) IB. Now I am trying to open an account with OEC and that this a challenge but they offer a very steady platform/connection.
Someone mentioned a deal between esignal and OEC, wondering what is this about??

From their site:
The eSignal Plug-In

Take advantage of OEC's eSignal module and populate your OEC Trading platform with data provided by eSignal.
Features:
  • Chart and track symbols provided by eSignal
  • Use OEC real-time data and eSignal's data at the same time providing redundancy
  • Record data and play back using OEC's playback function
I can't post direct link since I'm new here.

Hi Brownsfan019 thanks for the input. I have been talking with them at Global and there is nothing different they are exactly the same with all the same benefits. Global just provides them with more exposure.
Anyways I like this platform and the ability to write in easy language is nice to.
Heres something I found out today as well OEC is 15 minutes from my home, I had read somewhere they originated in Powell Ohio I didn't know they were still located here.
Also thanks to dlatbm.

No problem dragon.
Are you aware that you are limited to 5 tick symbols at one time?
Can you get them, while in the neighborhood, to move on with their new clients?
Thanks

OEC Trader 3.5 is pretty impressive, so I've heard, and by just looking at it briefly yesterday. It would seem to be one of the best broker-provided platforms out there, up there with TOS.

I'm using MC now though, but I wonder, how does OEC Trader compare to the likes of MC, NT and SC? From charting, to back-testing, the DOM, computer resource utilization, handling stock and option orders, et al...
