    Hey everyone.

    Looking to hear what people are using for live data.

    I currently use SAXO and will be upgrading to Level 2 data. Though this does not gel with Optuma.

    I want access to news, course of sales, level 2 data and also day trading charts for Australian Shares.

    What is everyone using?

    I’d prefer to analyse in Optuma and execute through the broker. I just hate the Saxo Go platform, which is why I am looking for live data in Optuma.

    Hi Jonathan,

    I’m afraid importing Saxo data into Optuma is not possible at present. I’ve already asked Optuma that question and thus far there hasn’t been sufficient demand for them to add that functionality. Maybe if enough of us Optuma users ask for it then Optuma may be able to put it on their to-Do-List with a  bit higher priority, realising of course that Optuma’s ability to import data requires an agreement, and more than likely MONEY, for the data provider. 

    Also as  Saxo user, I’m also disappointed with their move the to web based “SaxoTraderGo” and “SaxoTraderPro”, compared to their previous stand-alone application “SaxoTrader2”, which incidentally had already been crippled by the removal of the Custom Tool functionality when they changed from “Chart” to “New Chart”. I’ve complained directly to Saxo about the backwards moves they are making, in my view, and suggest you do likewise, if you haven’t done so already. Enough squeaks might get the wheel greased and moving in the right direction. Unfortunately many software developers only listen to those screaming for new features, and because they haven’t heard any comment on the many features long time users already love and use, they remove them. I don’t mind features being added, but unless they are irrevocably broken, I definitely don’t like it when features are removed. 

    Cheers 

    Trevor

    Thanks for your reply!

     

    Yes, I agree with you. I signed up for Interactive Brokers just to get market data to be imported into Optuma, but their platform is disgusting, that instantly I am considering to go back to Saxo!

    It is really a lose-lose situation we have here.

    A new platform out now is stockstotrade.com, if it wasn’t for the hefty price tag, this would definitely be on the list.

    Optuma. Can you please provide access to Live Data – including level 2 data, news, integrations like twitters, stocktwits, etc.

    I think its time we make Optuma the best platform out there, but there is a HUGE lacking of integrations from the live-data sector. Might be time just to add live data and have your users pay the $10-$25 per month to access this data right through Optuma.
