Product Review: CQGnet by John Sweeney
Few names have more cachet in the trading data business than CQG. Years ago, CQG figured out how to provide reliable intraday and historical datastreams, constantly refreshable, and backed the entire package with top-flight service. Now they’ve taken the whole package to the Internet with CQGNet. (For a thorough review of the features of CQG For Windows, see the September 1998 STOCKS & COMMODITIES.)
CQGNet comes on a compact disc that installs the entire package on your hard drive, taking up about 30 MB of disk space. To launch the program, insert
your user name and a password. With your Internet connection established, the program seeks out home base and updates itself if any program up-dates have been released since your copy of the program was issued. During the two months I used CQGNet, it updated itself three times.
