You are correct that this $15 fee is for CME Market Data. Currently, we are dependent on CQG and Rithmic to provide a solution that would allow the basic data package (no market depth) for $3 per month. Once they make it available to us, we will communicate this to our customer base.

I am just wondering why there is a separate charge for CME Market Data. I thought based on Ray's webinar and from your web-site FAQ; this is included in your all-in commission structures.
What are the new rates for NinjaTrader Brokerage customers?
Our all-in commissions are clear and transparent including all transactional exchange, clearing, and data fees. Rates are based on your NinjaTrader platform license level with the lowest rates available to Lifetime License holders.
The all-inclusive rate that NinjaTrader Brokerage publishes includes all transactional fees (exchange fees, clearing/brokerage, Continuum data fees) but does not include the monthly CME Market Data fees that were introduced this year. This monthly fee does not apply to everyone today based on the “grandfather status” allowed by CME, but does apply to new futures accounts. It is important to understand this is an industry-wide charge that CME instituted this year and starting January 1st, 2015 will apply to all futures trading accounts regardless of the brokerage firm.
Has anyone who is using the NT Continuum data feed (provided by CQG I believe) noticed that it seems to lag, especially during times when the market is moving faster? I am watching the ES and Bund. I previously was using Kinetick and didn't see this issue. I use the NT DOM as well as the Jigsaw Depth&Sales that shows prints. Sometimes I now hear my limit order getting filled before the DOM even shows that the price has been hit. Just curious if anyone else has noticed this.. I have a 45Mbit pipe and i5/3.7GHZ 32GB RAM machine, which has worked fine with this setup prior to moving to the NT Continuum feed.
We have well over 15,000 users daily connected to Continuum/CQG and lag has not been a general issue. I suggest following up with my support team to see if they can isolate anything with your specific set up that could be causing performance issues.
