The EveryTick Excel Macro writes data to text or binary files depending on which feed you've configured it for. Real Time reception of this data into your Trading Software depends on how your Trading Software deals with External Data.
Some Trading Software providers offer a way to write data to a text file in a particular folder and the software recognizes the file being updated in real time and pulls the data in automatically like a feed. Others require the data be imported but can closely simulate a real time feed by setting up a Schedule to have the data imported every few seconds. Lastly, some Trading Software providers allow for manual import only. Here is a snapshot of the Trading Software providers that EveryTick currently feeds.
