Using matlab's "Getdata" command to fetch the current quote of various issues thru eSignal's API... Six different fields of information are returned containing the last trade, bid, ask and a qty for each, however there is no "Time of Trade". You can't tell whether the price is recent, or was made a half hour ago or whether it was even traded that day or the previous one. It would be useful to have that basic information. I corresponded with matlab on this point - and they replied that the time of trade was not available thru esignal's API for matlab, and therefore there was nothing they could modify on their side to get that data.
The time of last trade (or last tick on an index) can be seen on any of eSignal's intraday charts or Watch Lists. Can you make this data available via the API to matlab for the"current" quote, not just the historical timeseries data? Thanks.
