Been using NT Brokerage for FX back when they used FXMC and now as they use FOREX.COM. I think it's better now that they use FOREX.COM.

They are not a broker in and of themselves.

One thing I don't like about FOREX.COM data (which I just learned last night and today) is the feed does not offer Net Change info. For example the percent change of a pair from yesterday. I view all the pairs and futures I watch in a Market Analyzer and have it auto sort based on percent change. All of 2017 I used IQFEED FX data even though I had free data from NT broker. Here in 2018 I end my IQFEED FX data to save $20/mo but now I see this issue. Will have do a little coding to make my own Net Change.

Thanks Ron,I think th feeds will vary because of the way liquidity is provided.Im a newbie to forex.Are using NT7 or NT8? I asked another question, on the forum.Im looking for a session template.My pivot and swap levels are off.I tried using 24/7 and 24/5.Im using NT7.Another trader mentioned setting session from 5am to 4:59 am.Basically 24 hours.Im not sure how vwap works with forex yet, but i know the start time will change it
