Where can i get historical tick data for CME/GLOBEX futures which would include BBO updates on bid/ask. The datacollector thread gathers only trade information (there is no data on changes of volume on best ask). Please advice on where to get such data?

Thank you.

Historical tick data including BBO:

If you are referring to level 2 depth history, that isn't tick data and I don't know of anyone that sells the data or gives it away. I store it for personal use in my database, but it's incredibly large dataset. You can download some of it from NT Market Replay, and there are years of Market Replay data posted on futures.io (formerly BMT) as well.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
