if this way we just fill values and algo start fireing orders

this is what you want
so explain what i am looking at

have you ever heard of watson

oh man you don;t know what you are missing
i have access to this secret ibm project computer
sort of like a like a vic 20 but faster

it is fast
can you provide the data via cassette player?
it a new technology no one ever heard of

which data
the feed
do you have access to something that looks like this ?

what city are you in ?

oh good
do you know what a flea market is?

we basically get feed in our colo rack there we have database server where we read and execute trades on that behalf
this thing is propietary for my secretive system
you need to get one of these things
you can buy one for real cheap

but how can i record exchange feed into this
you hook it up to the computer
it is $55 USD on amazon
you may be able to get it cheaper in india

there is one is one spain on ebay

then should i record feed and send to u
if you send to me, it adds to the latency so it needs to be local to you
for lowest latency right?
that is what you want
i can give you the ebay link

wow you get a manual to
that is rare

i will try with it otherwise i will try to get feed file and mail that to u is it be fine

i will mail u it to u today positively


we have some softwares also which read this feed and convert it in excel on live basis will that be usefull
of course
that would be very useful

i will arange a system at my end and give u through team viewer
