Thank you for your help. The video is very helpful. Now i can connect OwnData+Zenfire to TradeStation.

One thing need to mention that the video has one error, i try to set ESU0's exchange to GLOBEX, but failed. So i set ESU0's exchange to CME successfully.

Yes, Zen-fire doesn't provide historical data. The bars listed in TradeStation8 are limited. Zen-fire and TradeStation isn't a good combination.

I found one interesting thing, Zen-fire also provides real-time "Open Interest" data. Please see the attachment. Does anyone know how to show "Open Interest" in NinjaTrader?

On the other hand, IB provides historical data back fill. Maybe IB and TradeStation is a good combination.

Best Regards,
51friend

Hi 51friend, edi025, Mike,

I am trying to connect Tradestation 8.6 with e Signal datafeed using Owndata 2.7.

I am able to get e Signal data in to Owndata.

Now the question is do I need to save i.e. export this data as ASCII file. Or How Can I get this data in to Trade Station. The video link in this thread is not working.

Also I am unable find out Format Symbol menu in Trade Station.


Kindly Help

Thanks for all the help, I tried that also. When I get to from data source, the arrow is there, but no list will populate, that is what made to try the manual entry.

Hi spx-tdr

I am getting the same message as you. Can you please explain what you did to get quotemanager and hopefuly in the end TS 8.7 to work.

Thanks

Actually my problem turned out to be very simple: I just had to install OwnData >after< TS 8.7, so the DLLs were installed correctly. Then I fire up IB's Trader Workstation, then TS 8.7 (work offline) and it magically all works.

Finding the data feeds for Interactive Brokers, and using the correct symbol prefix (e.g. IB:ESM1) also works just fine.

Hi All

Hoping for some help. I did reinstall Owndata and I keep getting the same message in attached png. Hopefully someone out there has experienced the same problem and found a fix. I am using ZenFire, Owndata 2.7 and TS 8.7 in offline.

Make sure you use for example ESM1 for es june 2011 as it is case sensitive in the quote manager.
Still trying to get TS 8.7 in offline and Owndata to work. If anyone can provide info that would be great. I Have tried in offline entering ZF:ESM1 but keeps coming up wrong signal.
