QCollector For QCharts

NOTICE: QCollector For QCharts is no longer for sale.

QCharts has been purchased by Interactive Data Corporation, the parent company of eSignal, and new versions of QCharts will run on the eSignal data network. This means that programs like QCollector For QCharts, which were built to run on the original QCharts data network (QFeed), will stop working when the changeover is finalized.

We recommend that QCharts users evaluate our QCollector Pro for eSignal program, which will work with the new QCharts 6.0 package using the eSignal Data Manager.

Licensed users of QCollector For QCharts will still be able to download the latest version of the program from our web site as long as the original QCharts data network remains online.

Subscribers to the QCharts real-time data feed can now use QCollector For QCharts to download data for an unlimited number of stock, futures, options or index symbols. QCollector saves the data to files on your computer where it can then be used by other trading programs for
