The survey is for anyone who wants to participate.
Here's what he says:
"The present idea I have is to relaunch Prophet as trading platform for chartists. So you'd be able to trade directly from Prophet"

I hope you did the survey and told him that.
Their service sucks eversince he sold the company.
And they've made no improvements.

I brought it to his attention at least 6 months ago and the problem still lingered until very recently. While I didn't see any noticeable delay on the day of the FOMC meeting last week I'm still not convinced just yet considering the fact that they practically screwed us for so long. Moreover, from what I know, they were on more than friendlier terms with the cstomers of ThinkorSwim (the brokerage arm of Investools, the acquirer of Prophet.net). For instance, they provided ProphetChart to those folks long before it became available to us. What kinda crap is that? Unfortunately I'm stuck with their 2-year prepaid thang. But I definitely plan to bail out after that.

Why not ask Stock Fetcher if they couldn't design their system for trading? Why work in two sites when Stock Fetcher could be the "do-it-all" system for all of us.

That's because not many of us prefer to trade using EOD data. Plus, have you forgotten the useless maxim, "it ain't WHAT you use, it's HOW you use it, damnit!"? lol

Keep reminding me, and even at my age I just might learn that fact.

If you want reliable REAL TIME service, try www.madscan.com The service ROCKS!!! They are also suppose to be adding the ability to load symbol lists right from the csv file. So you can load you stock fetcher symbols into it. Use promo code lfm100.

Let me know you thoughts on it. I have heard nothing but good things about it.
