I have tested..


both of these services as part of a collaborative group of traders. We wanted to test for speed, reliability, and necessity.

Rans was faster on both economic releases and on regular news.

We found equal reliability of the information but TTN did have two incidents where server and thus feed was interupted.

Ran's broadcast less, meaning that they only talked when something was important. We found TTN to sometimes give commentary that was subjective.

Rans was considerably less expensive. But the Russian girl that was our sales rep for TTN was absolutely beautiful

Hope that helps.
Good luck.

Thanks, for your comment.
I test both service only 1 week per each service, but after this week iam also look to Ran`s side)
1. Ran`s is much chipper- 50 GBP with 1 min broadcast delay;
2. Web interfece on Ran`s more useful for me.

And Ran`s more then enough for future trader ( i think)


Good luck

Hey.

I think we paid less, maybe 20 pounds a month. We did not have all of the feeds though. IMO, if you can wait for a one minute delay, you can probably save the expense of a paid news feed. All the best.

They used to charge 20 GBP/month on Talking-Forex.com, which was owned by Ransquawk and marketed as just Forex but essentially had most of the global market moving events covered (such as Treasuries, NFP, CL, etc.) anyway.

It used to be real-time audio at that price, which was very reasonable IMO. Then it all changed so I cancelled.

Ha...

That is what I remember as well. I think when they were adding the delay and doubling the price was probably what killed the deal for us as well.

We found that having the real time excellent feed was fun and interesting, but it was not demonstrably beneficial for our type of trading. Generally we are aware of possible market moving events and trade around or avoid those. A major unknown market moving event is going to clobber you regardless of what you listen to.

We found the feed valuable and interesting, but more on a macro perspective and felt that the bump in price and added delay to be kind of offensive. My point was you made this deal and we accept that, now you want to bump cost and add delay...be honorable and keep your word. Call me old fashioned, I guess.

Having ZERO news feed on the desk has not hurt results, so yeah.

On that basis I'm old fashioned as well then, given I gave them the when they changed the terms.

I found it useful for certain releases such as EIA for CL or NFP for the treasuries or DXY especially when the release was way off the expectations, then one could make an informed choice as to get in or not. Adding delay to the releases killed that model.
