I have an MB Trading demo account and I am trying to set it up with a free Ninjatrader license. Is there a license key available that will permit MB Trading demo usage similar to the free CQG license from AMP trading?
Comparing the feed to an institutional feed, it appears to be excellent especially for the cost. US commodity data is very good. The problem I have been having (it might be a Ninjatrader problem) is that it will stop live data, even though it will say it's connected. So I will leave it on a server to record market replay data, only to come back and find it stopped two days ago.
Further, when Ninjatrader crashes sometimes, the login info disappears from the connections list in Ninjatrader.
I didn't have these issues with a CQG feed I successfully entered into Ninjatrader. But that doesn't mean it's not Ninjatrader's fault.
I only use Ninjatrader for market replay because I like it better than Sierra and Multicharts, and other platforms such as Bloomberg don't even offer it.
I think the Kinetick feed is based from FXCM, which is accurate enough. I only need pip precision, not fractional pricing. Almost all brokers have the bid/ask within 0.5 + - from each other.

True, I also had the same problem, when being connected more than a week. When it happen I usually have an error message, a windows with something like "Connection with level II server lost", and an "OK" button. You click on the OK button, the data feed seems to be okay (Kinetick label is "green"), if in fact you don't receive data anymore. Which is quite disappointing, it's better to have a real disconnect and a red label...
One of my trading VPS users had opened a ticket with NT support for this problem, and I think it's a known issue which will be solved in the next NT release (to be confirmed, I'm not 100% sure of that).
