The standard XENITH data that feeds Metastock RT is 20 minutes delayed streaming data; this data can become live by paying the exchange royalty fee for individual exchanges in your selected data region. As an example the ASX live data royalty is currently $US18.00 per month on top of your subscription.
The initial annual or monthly subscription to an Equity region of your choice includes all data exchanges across all Equity regions on a 20 minute delay. If you require Live data, you need to select the region that your exchange belongs to as your first region. Doing this will allow you to pay the exchange fee for live data. As an example; If you require LIVE ASX data, you would select the Asia/Pacific data region as your first region, this would allow you to then pay the exchange fee for the ASX exchange to make this data live instead of the standard 20 minute delay. By selecting the Asia/Pacific region as your first region, any exchange within the Asia/Pacific region can be made live by paying the individual exchange fee for that exchange, exchange fees vary greatly between exchanges.
The initial subscription to the Asia/Pacific region example above also includes the other data regions ( North/South America , Europe / Africa and World Futures ) on a streaming 20 minute delay basis, Forex data is included LIVE as there are no exchange fees for FOREX data currently.
