This has been the first week I have had both MBTrading & Dukascopy running to compare the two ... just $EURUSD .... I see that the amount of data saved in the NT database is significantly larger (2 to 3X) for that instrument in the MBTrading versus Dukascopy ... anyone have same observation ... any suggestions as to why? Both are on demo/SIM mode
I do hope that Dukascopy isnt filtering that data ... If anyone wants a detailed look Ill be happy to send over todays data from both machines

Why not ask Dukascopy directly, as well. Sometimes a sim feed is not the same as a live feed, so maybe that is what is happening here. I am not sure as I have no experience with either of the firms, but I do know as an example that the Trading Technologies demo/sim feed via Velocity is not the same as the live feed.

In jforex you can also use tick chart, use 1 tick chart. It may help you to compare feeds.
Also in dukas forum is dde example how to transfer data, and jforex wiki is more complex example how to create tcp interface which sends orders to jforex server.
If I had time at monday i can try to create small sample of charts,where is one tick from both feeds.

Here is snapshot of ticks
mbt vs. dukas.
I think there is more ticks in MBT.
But Why ?
Is mbt's pricing software more aggresive. Dukas should be bigger player in fx.
couple months ago dukas was giving only 0.00005 decimals for eurusd now they give prices 0.00001 for retail traders.
I have not done any statistics, but comparing using eyes and i think mbt is giving better prices for retailers. not 100% sure
