Product Review: eSignal by Stuart Evens
Signal Online and StockEdge Online have gotten a major overhaul and a name change to eSignal. Data Broadcasting Corporation’s two flag-ship products, BMI and Signal, are aimed at sophisticated traders and speculators, delivered over one-way broadcast technology. Each offers users the ability to mix and match real-time and delayed data depending on the trader’s specific data needs. Now, with eSignal (Figure
1) (formerly Signal Online and StockEdge Online), DBC’s Internet-delivered version of Signal, provides continuous streaming real-time quotes with direct exchange connections for US equities as well as futures, options data, and Nasdaq Level II Market Maker information; limit alerts via pager, E-mail, or cellular phone; technical analysis, charting, and company research; headline tickers and full story news; detailed portfolio management windows; and fundamental data. Their data is also compatible with a host of third-party
technical analysis software vendors, including MetaStock, TradeStation, and Ensign. Plus, eSignal can update an Excel spreadsheet for portfolio management.
