In theory they are comparing their feed to a few other feeds, not just CQG..

Paladin: In the webinar that DTN has given here on bigmike they state themselves that they are comparing their data to CQG.

You could say that CQG and Esignal are the standards in our business.

Paladin,

given that I work for CQG I will not be going into details as to why we're better than most other feed and charting products out there (dont want to be blames for blatant advertisement). I do agree with you, however - take a demo drive and see what you think. Given your charting style I'd recommend you to play with Constant Volume Bar charts, and do make sure to understand all of the parameters associated with it. In case of any question call CQg support, they'll be glad to help.

Continuum is division of CQG that is focusing on partnering with other firms and providers that neeed parts of CQG system, for instance - Ninja Trader that has integrated with our Ticker Plant and Trade Routing network, ProphetX is offerring CQG Trading front End as part of their charting product, etc. We're open to these partnerships and will be happy to help those who need data feed, historical data or access to various exchanges world wide.

Why not? I personally would like to understand the reasons, get a technically background and so understand better your pricing structure.

Thanks!

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)

Ah... ok, I understand! I was asking concerning the technically background. Since CQG is quite expensive I wanted to know which technololgy they use to compare the different data feeds and to get a better unerstanding.

One question, has someone used ProphetX which has the DTN IQ Feed and execute orders through CQG? I didnt find any pricing information, only this:
http://www.elitetrader.com/vb/showthread.php?threadid=66099&perpage=6&pagenumber=1
http://technical.traders.com/Products/display.asp?prodid=838&dbname=software\software&tablename=soft_quest

Another question is, if they use CQG as order execution, so it would technically be possible to use it with any brokerage firm that offer CQG, or Im wrong?

Since CQG is quite expensive


expensive is a very relative word when it comes to CQG... if their execution is the difference between you making $20K/month vs. $10K/month... then they are well worth the $2K per month IMO... please keep in mind that many that use CQG and trade professionally, make that amount or more daily... so $2K is just the cost of doing business, a drop on the bucket when you can trade professionally and your account size requires the level of execution and reliability.

as long as your FCM supports CQG, you can trade with any IB that works with the FCM that supports CQG... i will make it more interesting... you can even have more than one FCM(separate ones) and use one CQG IC... I have not done it, but when I asked I was told that it would be possible.

As stated previously I see myself going one day to CQG and forget all the retail stuff. It might hopefully happen sooner than later.

Do you think I could get a discount if we could buy it in 'group' ? Maybe with 3 people in 1 time ?

3 people maybe hard. I know CQG offers discounts at a level of 5 screens. But then - try calling your broker, if you do decent level of business some brokers are covering cost of CQG IC for their traders.

I dont think they negotiate .... it is just like having a bloomberg terminal, everyone pays the same regardless of who you are (large or small as long as you can afford it) ... but I can ask the rep that I have dealt with...

personally, I still like MD for charting.. and I prefer their CQG Trader with Advanced features.. I get the execution, just no the charting.. but mostly because I could not get the hang of the IC piece for charting during the 2 week trial.. just not enough time to work with the platform overall.

as an FYI, crossland is the only FCM that I came across that would allow the advanced features on CQG Trader to be activated, and that would also rebate the transaction fees after the $395 for the trader is hit in fees.. everyone else just keep charging one for transaction fees that dont really exist after certain amount.

but at the same time I like tradevec a lot, specially now that is beginning to mature... I am waiting for their latest upgrade to see the major changes coming, but that is another story...
