I need to know how to connect real-time data to Wealth-Lab
Fidelity is not an option because I failed to open a trading account with them
What is the provider that I could use?

I tried IB Automated trader but update rate is very slow & the plugin is disconnected every 5 min so I can't continue with it

Please help!

If you're looking for intraday data for U.S. stocks or Futures then let me recommend IQFeed. Please check out "Extension description" for more information:

IQFeed static/streaming provider

Thanks for the rapid response.

Do you have any other recommendation as IQ Feed needs to store my credit card which is not allowed by my bank

Also, I am looking for a broker which I can connect wealth lab and do my automated trading. (other than Fidelity which requires U.S. citizenship). I need the broker to provide the data feed and I execute the order automatically based on strategy monitor in wealth-lab.

How about issuing a virtual credit card with your bank or other institution that could be used for online transactions? I'd be surprised if DTN won't accept Paypal but please ask their billing support.
