Which provider, you forgot to clarify?

For Fidelity, this is most likely answered in the Wealth-Lab User Guide.

Yeah fidelity... I kind of searched in programming guide, sentiment indicator doc and user guide but i can't quite find that. For active trader pro, it says something like .TIC.N but it does not work when i type that in....

WLP has a built-in Market Sentiment DataSet. I believe these symbols should be there.

I don't think that a symbol history for "Tick" is available, but WL Pro automatically installs a "Market Sentiment" DataSet, briefly described in the WealthScript Programming Guide: Fundamental Analysis > Market Sentiment Data. The Market Sentiment data are daily only, but you're probably looking for an intraday indication of symbols hitting the bid or offer.

The three symbols I have for Fidelity tick data are: .TIC.A .TIC.N .TIC.O. They seem to work in WLP for me. I had to add them beyond the Market Sentiment data Fidelity preinstalled. I download it daily as 1 minute scale.

If .TIC.N doesn't work, you most likely do not have Update Data on Demand enabled. Menu item "File | Updated Data on Demand" should show check on menu if it's enabled.

Thanks for the info! I'm going to try it now :)

Update:
For me, data came in for .TIC.N (NYSE) and .TIC.A (AMEX), but not for .TIC.O (Nasdaq).

Interesting. I'm getting all three at 1 minute scale -- including .TIC.O (latest bar 5/4 11:36am). I have streaming quotes running as I write this.
