I also use Kinetick with Interactive Brokers. It works well for futures.

You just first-connect to Kinetick and then second-connect to Interactive Brokers.

It gets more complicated, if you wish to trade FOREX and futures.

FOREX data should be taken from the ECN which is used for trading. You cannot go for FOREX trades on IdealPro with data from FXCM or Tenfore.

In that case you want to use FOREX data from Interactive Brokers and must pay attention to not loading backfill from Kinetick (not connecting when updating FOREX charts).
