I asked that 2 times to velocity and they refused this 2 times. That's why I moved away from Velocity, I found somebody who did AND on top had lower commissions than velocity. I pay substantially less than velocity now.
FYI, I use TT data on my Ninja Charts and I have them set to .1 refresh rate. If it is a timed burst transmission, then it is much faster than 250mS.
Wednesday on CL, I had it paint over two dozen bars in about 3 seconds. When I refresh tick charts with ZenFire data, there is almost no difference. Sometimes the TT charts have had more ticks than my historical Zen charts.
But MetalTrade is correct; TT is all about order entry, not charting. Most who use TT are using X_Trader DOM with another charting platform such as eSignal.
Not sure why he experienced gaps and lost ticks... I've never had any problems. But different levels of performance with charting/data/execution seems to be a common theme. My ping times to my server are 48mS, so I'm personally never going to get executions faster than 100mS after the actual event.
But I'd also be interested to hear who he uses now... It's always nice to have backup in the bullpen. If you don't want to publicly share, then please PM me.

Sierra Charts, Trading Technologies, Deep Discount Trading
I am in the process of moving my charts from Tradestation to Sierra Charts and funding an account with www.deepdiscounttrading.com I am working with Howard Lender at 1 888 407 7918. The charts and platform will be powered by Trading Technologies. The reason for this change is primarily to reduce my transaction costs as Deep Discount Trading offers a standard commission rate of 50 cents per side on the ES E-mini. The total round trip cost including all clearing and exchange fees is $3.22. As a scalper doing 20 to 50 trades per day the potential savings is too large too ignore.
If any other members of this excellent forum have taken this path, please share your experiences with the rest of us. Thank you, Joe S (donzi)
