I currently am using the following setup for trading HSI. NT for front end, esignal for data, IB for broker.
Whilst I have no issues with IB as a broker I find the Esignal data expensive, and not the greatest. Maybe 3-4 times I week I will get a dropout lasting from seconds to minutes, and if I ever reload the data during the day there are numerous bad ticks which are often 100 points of candle tail. I don't often have to reload however when you do it essentially screws up the auto adjust function. Esignal also does not offer level 2 data which is not a major for me but it would be a nice to have.
Now I can't use CQG/Continuum feed in NT at another broker as my licence is not grandfathered. Esignal is the only alternative unfiltered tick data provider for HSI.
So that leaves me having to look at potentially another broker and platform/data provider.
Does anyone know of a HSI broker that provides an all in commission that matches or is close to IB which on the tiered offering starts around HK$38.02 all in RT and downwards?!? I spoke to Phillip Futures and they said it would be HK$90 all in RT which is absolutely ridiculous. I know it comes down to volume but I am not a one lot trader at present whilst I am transitioning from the FDAX...
I guess these brokers would offer CQG or TT?!?
Any ideas or suggestions/experiences I would greatly appreciate.
It is almost immpossible to find brokers with that what you are looking for and who can be comparable with IB at any point.Some brokers like KGI futures got CQG and HSI but their commission is much bigger.Even local brokers somethimes take 60 HKD ... per side. So ... good luck
When I ask them by email they also not answer me.Then my friend who makes much larger volume contact them and they send him a price scheme.I got It too so if you want I can send you their commission plan for all futures.
If you want it pm me - and if you want to got more info then you need to call them.Sadly in these days its only method - like in 80' :-D.Getting info via email somethimes is harder then landing on the moon ...
