TradeStation's dedication to quality extends to market data, where we offer exceptional speed and reliability of data transmission that empower you to stay on top of shifts in market direction as they occur.
TradeStation works tirelessly to provide clean and accurate market data, helping you to make trading decisions with confidence. Our data accuracy is achieved through the use of multiple automated filtering mechanisms. As a first layer of defense, erroneous data is caught in real time by our automated filtering mechanisms. As a second layer of defense, data is corrected in real time by the financial exchanges themselves. And as a third layer of defense, data is manually maintained in-house by an expert team of market data professionals.
TradeStation's ConnectionGuard™ technology helps to provide data accuracy even when your Internet connectivity is temporarily lost, so that you don't miss potentially valuable trading opportunities. If connectivity is re-established within two minutes of the time that you lost connectivity, all of the ticks that you missed during that period will be delivered. This prevents resetting all transactions and re-requesting all data, increasing your trading efficiency.
You can use TradeStation anywhere in the world. If you're able to connect to the Internet, then you're able to connect to TradeStation.
TradeStation's historical database is highly regarded among financial data providers. By offering years and even decades of intraday and daily data – along with extensive amounts of tick data – we allow you to back-test your strategies to a degree that's uncommon elsewhere.
Historical Market Data
Choose how and when your continuous futures contracts roll from one month to the next, and let TradeStation do the rest. You can use our automatic continuous contracts or choose the specific months to include in the continuous contract, the data series on which to base the continuous data, the rollover trigger event and the back adjustment method. All of these allow you to view the market and back-test differently to find what works best for you.
TradeStation's real-time market indices provide unique perspectives on the market action. We offer nearly 1,000 time indices tailored to specific market segments. For example, TradeStation provides nearly 1,000 market data indices tailored to certain futures such as the full and mini-sized S&P 500, NASDAQ 100, Dow 30 and Russell 2000.
TradeStation combines data from several active sources – including NASDAQ Level II, NASDAQ TotalView, NASDAQ OpenView, BATS (BATS Y and BATS Z), Direct Edge (EDGA and EDGX) and ARCA – to provide exceptional insight into market depth and liquidity in real time.

Past performance, whether actual or indicated by historical tests of strategies, is no guarantee of future performance or success. There is a possibility that you may sustain a loss equal to or greater than your entire investment regardless of which asset class you trade (equities, options or futures); therefore, you should not invest or risk money that you cannot afford to lose. Options trading is not suitable for all investors. Your account application to trade options will be considered and approved or disapproved based on all relevant factors, including your trading experience. View the document titled Characteristics and Risks of Standardized Options. Before trading any asset class, customers must read the relevant risk disclosure statements on our Other Information page. System access and trade placement and execution may be delayed or fail due to market volatility and volume, quote delays, system and software errors, Internet traffic, outages and other factors.
