This requirement is not lost on us and is on our radar screen. We have not had time to circle back to discuss this internally due to other priorities involving our upcoming 7.0.1000.3 Beta release. Once I have a clearer picture in this area I will be sure to provide additional update.

I have read the entire thread and what I would like to know is, what exactly is the significance of what ya'll are discussing? Aren't you just talking about a different data feed? Granted many consider it a premier data feed.
If I am a discretionary day trader (not a scalper) only trading TF,6E and CL manually on NT v7 with Zenfire is this a really important thing I need to look into, or is it just another option I could use if desired?
Thanks in advance for your patience and understanding.
I'm just a simple man trading a simple plan.

CQG index data
Hi Cory....you seem to be all over the CQG data feed so I thought I'd direct this question to you
According to AMP (http://www.ampclearing.com/cqg_indexes.html) we should be able to access a whole list of index instruments in NinjaTrader through CQG. Only problem is I can't get any data for any of them and in the case of TICKDJ I get an error message saying that Ninja data server does not support the instrument. Is there some mysterious setup required before we can access these symbols in NT and CQG? I've looked around on AMP and CQG and NinjaTrader and so far have come up empty.

Could you clarify Ray... Do Ninja maintain separate history servers for CQG and for Zen. Will we get the appropriate history depending on who we use live?
A small aside....
Whats the difference between "worked closely with CQG in developing from the ground up an API that communicates directly to their network." (without an API layer) and Kinetic where "We write directly to the market data servers " (with an API) I am not trying to be a smart arse or anything just kind of interested if there is any practical difference? Is the API in the first instance exposed to users?
