Thanks: 29 given, 24 received

I am looking for a data feed to compliment IB, (my broker), or a new broker / data feed.
In researching I have found that a couple of brokers / data feeders, offer CME Globex for free, no exchange fees.
And others don't. Is this offer from CME, and can be used with all brokers / data feeders? If so, how?

I am mainly looking at Kinetic, Mirus / Zen Fire, & MB Trading.
Please feel free to comment on these guys if you think you can assist me in my decision making.
I plan to mainly trade 6E, possibly ES & maybe the Aussie SFE SPI, using tick charts.

Appreciate all and any help.

If you want to stay with IB: if using NT, get Kinetick; if another platform, use IQFeed (identical data, slightly different support structure).

It is free in the sense that with a funded trading account CME will waive their fees because you will be trading and giving them money when doing so. But you still have to pay the data provider. Should come out to a minimum of $60 or so for Kinetick, that's bare bonds with no extras.
