Compatible Data Feeds


The NeuroShell Trader Series can retrieve data from many of today's popular market data services. In addition, the NeuroShell Trader Series can read in data from most of the common data file formats that can be produced by many services and platforms. Below is a matrix outlining supported datafeeds, formats and vendors.

If we don't already support your favorite intraday data source, you may be able to build your own interface if you are a good programmer, or have one on your staff. We offer a DataPump API for doing that. Assisting with this programming, however, is not part of our technical support, beyond providing documentation for the API and examples.
