Just one comment as you are trading Eurex products: Kinetick to my knowledge offers only servers to connect to in the US.
That would add quite a significant delay in transferring data from Eurex to the US and back.

Continuum is run by CQG who has servers in London, UK.
(You have to ask your broker to configure that in the CQG setup.)


But the order/risk management is usually done in the US, so CQG UK is fine as the data will be received quicker all the order will still have to cross the Atlantic.
The main difference is that Kinetick is providing market data only, while Continuum/CQG is providing the order feed and the market data.
