Overview
The choice of broker and/or data feed is a fundamental decision and differs depending on your purposes in trading. Therefore we would like to discuss this in the next section of the TradersYard X Online Help, before moving on to the actual help itself.
If you have not yet chosen a broker or data feed, there are several questions you should ask yourself, such as:
  1. 1.
    in which time frames you wish to trade (i.e. whether you require tick data: yes/no)
  2. 2.
    how the broker's spreads/charges are set up
  3. 3.
    which types of instruments a broker offers (CFDs, forex, shares, futures, etc.)
The supported data feed providers and available brokerage services are displayed in the table below:
