In VertexFx system, you will need a data feed so your system will be able to get the rates of the symbols to be reflected on the market watch, that's why there must be at least one data feed on the system, and it's always recommend to get more than one data feed so the system will switch to another data feed in case the current connected feed was disconnected.

The Data Feeds tab contains some options which are:

Option Description

Alert me when the active feed disconnected This is to give you an alert if the current connected feed is disconnected.
Switching interval From this window you can set the interval that the system will auto switch between your feed that you configured. Normally, it's set to be as the opening and closing timing of the market for the whole week.
