I just took a look at CQG trader today and it has the cumulative volume at each price like x-trader and with Velocity the bundled fee commissions are cheaper than x-trader so I plan to try it out. I need to confirm they have simulator for the markets I trade.

I am looking at it too.. what topped it for me was this morning around 7AM EST when I went to check out 6E and TF and I wanted to enter a trade, no data would feed the DOM, even though data was coming into the charts and the quoteboard just fine... POS product.. I had to uninstall and reinstall all over again and then it worked... what bothers me the most... none of this issues happen on the computer with the free license, but only on the one with the license that I spent $$$ for to trade live.. for all most things, the free license is just fine I have come to find out...which is probably why NT's product is lacking quality at the same time and they lack any innovation... who knows... I really only wanted to use their DOM with IB, ended up now using BookTrader from TWS for what I need.. and possibly now CQG for my scalping if that works..

CQG doesn't have eurex products on simulator so I stopped looking farther. If one isn't trading eurex then CQG does look good.

I've had lots of ninja problems lately and it appeared to be a problem with my PC, my network was overloaded. What's weird is other trading apps worked just fine and ninja was the only one that wouldn't work. I'm not sure how they manage the network but it seems inefficient. I reduced the number of futures I collect data for and exited tradestation and it seems to work better.

Part of your problem could be the interface with IB. Ninja talks to TWS who talks to the IB servers. A zenfire broker is more efficient but if you're going to do that might as well try CQG the commissions are cheaper.

Scalping with IB may not be optimal because they aggregate their data but I've heard people say it's fine.

There are also products that work with IB such as button trader. I haven't tried them.

That depends on each individual's criteria, trading style & markets. Ninja is great if you're not into super scalping on the DOM. Since the simulator is on the PC, you can sim any market.

CQG & X-Trader are better for DOM scalping and have the simulator on the server. It's a bit more realistic but they don't have all trading products (would require too much server resources for sim). CQG doesn't have any Eurex and Velocity's X-Trader doesn't have the Bund but it does have Dax & Stoxx.

I dont scalp with the IBKR account... well, not with futures anyhow as I do "day trade" equities/etf's and swing options on that account ... and I have used ButtonTrader, and I love it, but I just dont need it all the time for what I do with the IBKR account... so no need to pay the ~$500/yr to use it... if I day traded the basket I use every day, sure.. but I dont... anyhow, buttontrader is great... sadly he only supports IBKR...

This is the problem, they do not have eurex products on their demo. I guess they don't want to pay the fees. if it weren't for this I'd be testing it now but as I trade the Bund during the european session I won't be able to use it.

CQG is a super platform for those that seek straight DOM execution without the chart execution.
From a risk management perspective, in my honest opinion, this is one of the best platforms to view balance, open positions and open orders. The support desk there is great and solves any issues fairly fast.
CQG is also a feed like Rithmic, but it's a bit cheaper so we "feed" it via some other platforms.

I have attached here an image of it's DOM capability through a left-click.
This allows you to choose the order through the DOM by pointing to it.
Rock Solid and does warn you of any connectivity issues.

I only think they use the names CQG Lite and CQG Trader interchangeably.
I have asked the FCM for it again, but so far I see nothing knew coming out of them.
Our rep at CQG might give me some answers.
