Is your question whether an external feed like DTN is better than CQG for research? Or you specifically talk about execution whether CQG used data is better than broker provided feeds like OEC and TradeStation that have their own.
Brokers do use CQG data as well, as an FYI.
There is a risk of loss in futures trading. Past performance is not indicative of future results.

Yes! IT IS POSSIBLE TO MAKE a loss of MONEY FROM trading. You should not get just ANY BROKER FEED, do your due diligence. Try not to START WITH whatever they give you unless you understand the limitations. THE MOST EXPENSIVE OPTION is often also the most time-consuming to extract value from. DO NOT forget to search around on this topic online, CONSIDER YOUR OPTIONS.
YOU WILL MAKE a lot of mistakes, which can cost you PLENTY OF MONEY IF YOU just TAKE whatever ADVICE is GIVEN TO YOU ON A FORUM. Make sure YOU DON'T forget that you NEED TO FACT CHECK YOUR FINDINGS with your broker.

just my 2cs which is just my own...& may not apply to you.
its not really a feed that counts.....its probably how the feed is constructed and does it give you the relevant data one needs. much more important is that does one have the tech and market know how to deconstruct or find what one needs from any feed which would probably be the deciding factor between feeds. feed prices can range whole lot more than a mere couple $ but its what someone does with it and how they use it is what i understand. but thats just poor ol me.
every reconstructed feed may not be bad.....if the dev's know what they doing.. and one knows what they need of it.
almost every platform you can throw away a direct broker feed & feed an external if one wishes
cheers n only goodluck

It is in the unregulated forex industry that individual brokers can set there own quotes as there is no central exchange. With futures going through an exchange all the brokers should have the same quote at any moment in time.
A lot of people use broker feeds, especially at the beginning to save costs. I would only get an external feed at the beginning if I wanted to do a lot of backtesting of data and needed more historic quotes than the broker provided or for instruments and exchanges that the broker didn't supply.
Assuming you're serious.
