Again, each broker has a way to call CQG packages the way they want, so I cant comment on what is included into each package here. There is a version of CQG that is being sold in Asia called CQG Lite and it is limited to the Asian customers only. That package includes charting and trading. There are other CQG lite packages that are floating around as well in other parts of the world.

On the second question - there is a version of ProphetX with trading interface that is powered by CQG that is currently in the final stage of qualification. I am not sure on the pricing of it (question to ProphetX people), for trading it will have access to all exchanges where CQG has access to.

The naming and the ProphetX product came from a very good colleague from CQG Chicago.
I have been dialing the guys at ProphetX, sadly I did not get any answer. Probably the FIA taking all their time.
Your efforts to help on the forum are much appreciated.

CQG DAX, Euro Stoxx,Euro Bund,Euro Bobl, Euro Scatz

ok, good news: CQG Lite/Commercial can accommodate now all major European Futures.
All the routing will be done via New Edge which is a first class firm.

Other: I spoke to ProphetX guys for charting and for now it's a bit too expansive.
Their major clients need news and they charge for it. We don't need news..
They said they will try and come up with a better charting package to integrate with CQG.

If you use CQG lite, what datafeed are you using ?

If that is a datafeed from CQG, can you use ninjatrader charting on that datafeed ?

Nope, NT does not support CQG data, and anyway u need the CQG API service, this are the 3d party that use it API Partners

Take your Pips, go out and Live.

@h4cked, you mentioned you recently switched to CQG from NinjaTrader, I hope you will share some of your experiences as you go along in this thread.

Mike

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)
Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.

Why CQG IC is cheaper than you think

CQG is the gold standard for electronic trading and technical analysis, this is a well known fact.
Known also in the market for being very expensive for smaller private traders and a restrictive cost of entry.

Well I did some numbers over the last few days and thought I would share them.

The formula on the volume assumes a 50/50 split in trade on the EC and CL, you can adjust this to match your trading instrument.

The volume is also per side and the broker is all velocity.

Just proves though that at only 450 round turn contracts per month CQG IC is very cost effective.


You have to enjoy it.

CQG Automated

I have recently spoke to these guys for our CQG users who wanted to automate their methods on CQG integrated.
DMZ Trading Solutions, LLC

This is worth taking a look at if you are a high volume trader.

Thanks Matt

Yea DMZ is amazing for automation and its actaully a must for CQG.

Its 100 per month and the CQG API will be needed also and thats 150 per month.
Not cheap extras but the service offered is impressive.

DMZ will also manage any order failures, so the responsibility moves your from systems to thiers.

If anyone trades Forex and looking to use CQG just PM me I can help with a list of brokers/banks who work with the CQG FXall Accelor.

I gather from most of the folks on here its mainly Exchange based trading but if anyone is into Forex and wants a really pro platform just PM me.
