Supported Data Feeds

Most traders subscribe to a real-time data feed from a data vendor, because they need to get intraday data. MultiCharts supports many different data providers and more are added with each new release. You have complete freedom of choice — you can use one, two, or several data sources at the same time. Keep in mind, that each data vendor provides different historical data, so choose the one that suits your needs.
