For your Information
Approximately 90% of our brokerage feed clients use DTN MA for backfill, a good indication of its value.
What is DTNMA?
DTN MA is a historical data service hosted by DTN and marketed by Linn Software to Investor/RT users.
Why would I need it?
Users that feed Investor/RT using a brokerage account sometimes find the historical data coverage to be good for larger periodicities (i.e. Daily bars) but insufficient for smaller time frame anaysis (i.e. tick data). See Broker Data vs. Other Feeds for more information.
What does it cost?
The cost is $15/month. The feature can be enabled at any time by logging into your account on this website.
How does it work?
You will always use your brokers symbols for real time data but when your license includes DTN MA, you simply open the Instrument Set-up Window for each symbol by pressing Alt-A. Then add the DTN symbol at the bottom into the field labeled DTN Symbol. After that, all historical back fill requests are routed to DTN historical servers and your real time tick data continues to come from your broker.
