Well I am still having big connection problems with CQG. The fills are generally excellent when fully connected BUT yesterday I inadvetantly entered a position when the connection was orange (but still connected) and had about 6 ticks slippage on TF. It then spent half an hour flicking back and forth from green connected to orange connected, so I gave up for the rest of the day.
AMP customer support does not seem to want to answer my emails either.
If I can't trust the data feed it makes it totally unusable. For me the connection is far worse than Zenfire ever was. Am I the only one having problems with CQG? I had really high hopes for it too.
The following user says Thank You to britkid99 for this post:
I think I would pick up the good old fashion telephone and call them when you are having trouble.
I'm assuming your connection is having to cross the pond? You might try doing a trace route to get a better idea of where your packets are going and how long each hop is taking. PingPlotter is pretty good for that.
I would be interested in reviewing the logs/trace files to see if I can learn anything from your experience. If you wish to take me up on my offer, please start NinjaTrader, and send me an email via the menu Help > Mail To Support and include the subject "For RayD from britkid99".
" the Zenfire account will no longer work once you switch to CQG. That if you want to run Zenfire also you either have to sign up for a demo each month or setup a sub account so you could have one account for each connection."
Is this accurate?
I want to keep my Zenfire data feed but would also like to test drive the CQG feed for the Indexes when I am done trading for the day. Basically just switch the feeds. I do have a funded account at AMP.
Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

I use Optimus with a rithmic feed. Zenfire feed is based on rithmic so with rithmic your are essentially getting pure feed that does not go through zenfire servers.
I find the combination of Optimus and rithmic to work great.
Matt at Optimus is very helpful and makes himself available to talk. I would suggest calling him if you have questions.
