Was curious if there are any plans for data feed extensions for tradestation? They provide minute bars data 20 years back and could be helpful for those looking for reliable intraday feeds.

Could I ask, is it legal for TradeStation to sell its data to third-party users? Don't the exchanges own this data, so they would need to first agree to let a third-party user consume it? TradeStation really isn't a data broker like DTN.

Brokers are allowed to provide a "limited" feed, but it's very restricted and is really designed for just placing a trade, and not for a bulk, static update. Perhaps we are proposing a broker plug-in (streaming only) and not a regular static datafeed.

Multicharts allows data feed from tradestation. Think the more data feeds, the better it is for wealthlab since folks can quality check backtesting results by using multiple data sources, especially intraday strategies.

I don't think it's a case of TS selling its data to third party users. It's just a matter of allowing a TS customer who's already signed the appropriate agreements to get the data, to be able to use their data in anther software, such as WL.

Does anyone know if TS offers an API?

This will be great when it gets added since the data is high quality. I have exported TS data for years. Here is a list of what they offer:

-Stocks and Indexes - Tick-by-tick data is available for thirty days back, one-minute data for ten years back, and daily data for more than 30 years back.

-Futures - Tick-by-tick data for thirty days back, one-minute data since January 1982, pit data for individual contracts (delivery month/year) since 1970, and back-adjusted continuous contracts since the 1960s.

-Options - Data availability for options contracts is similar to that for futures but will vary based on how heavily the contract is traded.

It is good to realize and consider that the quality of data can make a big difference. It sounds like you have done it and that is why you want the TS data to be available in WL?

Just an update, we are still waiting for TradeStation to complete their overview of our application for their API. It's been several weeks now.
