Stay up to speed on market direction

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.

Avoid trading pitfalls caused by bad ticks

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.

Don't let Internet outages slow you down

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.

Use the Internet to connect anywhere

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.

Test strategies across all market cycles

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.
