@kk240
just wondering if you are using the NT/DNT bridge/Duka set up and if so, what has your experience been regarding synching after connection loss etc. and in general.
Thanks

data flow from MB & Dukascopy


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

Thanks,
Jon

Hi Jon,

I would like to review the data if you would. MB is a local broker for me and I've been contemplating using them if/when I move over to the Futures market (vs. spot).

Thanks.

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.

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.

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.

snapshot ticks

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

Just remembered that MB has some big announcement coming today. It's possible this change has something to do with the data feed.
