The SST SwingTrader takes it's data supply from Yahoo Finance for Indices and Google Finance for stocks. This is a free data supply and therefore there are no hidden charges for you. You need do nothing to gain access to the data, SwingTrader will automatically connect to Yahoo and Google Finance Data as soon as you complete the installation and each time you open up the program.
We do not control the quality of data but in our experience and that of many other traders who have used SwingTrader, the data is reliable and good quality. It may surprise you to know that NO data supplier can guarantee 100% accurate data but Google and Yahoo appear to be as good as other popular subscription suppliers.
The data is just 15 to 20 minutes delayed (depending on the exchange used) so you can check you trading positions any time from 20 minutes after the market has closed. In fact the prices shown in Swingtrader are 15 to 20 minutes delayed all through market open times so if you are really desperate to know how things are going you can check prices while the market is open. Please remember though that the SST strategy is End of Day so stop losses etc should not be adjusted until SwingTrader tells you what to do after the market has closed.
What can I trade?
