Using QLink for real-time data


I uploaded a couple of youTube videos that show how eSignal subscribers can use QLink as a real-time data feed for XLTrader templates.

The process is really pretty simple but there are a couple of tricks one need to be aware of:

1 The historical data should be downloaded in reverse (oldest data first) order
2 Since the QLink data block dimension is fixed, the oldest bar will scroll off of the screen when a new bar is added. This means that indicators which are typically anchored to a bar such as a Gann box, spiral or any of the Midas curves will have to be made to move with the bar it is anchor to. We can accomplish this task using a timestamp technique.
