eSignal is a reliable streaming real time data feed for AmiBroker.

Setting up instructions:

Video tutorial:



1. You need regular eSignal Real Time subscription to work with any 3rd party software, including AmiBroker.

Update: eSignal OnDemand is now 3rd party application compatible, so you can use it with AmiBroker, but you don't receive any streaming RealTime quotes, but only historical (via backfill). Tick data is also not available.

2. Limitation on historical data access during peak hours

During the first and last trading hour when the US stock market opens, some limitation to the amount of historical data you can download is imposed.

If you expected to load a lot of historical data, especially tick data, then it is better to do that before market open.

3. Extended historical data

Extended historical data is available in eSignal plugin version 3.1 and above (AmiBroker 5.60.2 and above).
To be able to use EXTENDED intraday data you need to:

  • (required) subscribe to “EXTENDED Intraday data” add-on (using eSignal Account maintenance) – cost is $10 monthly
  • (required) go to File->Database Settings, “Configure” dialog and check “Use Extended intraday data request” box
  • (optional) increase “Number of bars” setting to make room for more data
  • (optional) use “Force backfill” on already existing symbols to get full history or create new fresh database
