Updating an old thread to say that TickData.com now offers DateTime output (in addition to Date and Time as seperate fields) so it will play nicely with Ninja import process and any other code that likes ISO8601 DateTime structures.
The following 3 users say Thank You to MXASJ for this post:
I came across this post of yours about TickData.Com from a few years back and see that you were using them, I wondered if you still are and how your experience was/is? I downloaded TickWrite Demo and I quite like the flexibility of it as well as the offering of products they have. I only trade the Eurex - Bund but I figure it's the sort of solution that can grow with you over time if you want to add other markets etc.
The main area of concern for me is how streamlined the process is if one is using the daily updates.. I imagine I would want to continually update my Ninja Stream at the end of each day with the TickWrite info so I know it's always clean in Ninja but I'm wondering how much of a hassle this is in terms of Ninja maintaining the integrity of the data once imported. My concern is that when Ninja does Data refreshes from my active feed during the day it might start over writing imported historical stuff from TickWrite etc.., i looked at the option of turning off historical data retrieval on my active account connection but since this is a system wide option I can't do it just for the Bund which I want to maintain via TickWrite, I do watch a bunch of other instruments at the same time and so i would still want them to be pulling data from the Ninja Historical server. I guess in short I was just keen to hear your thoughts really on how the set up has worked for you over time and whether it was worth the effort in the end.
