Sorry, my frustration was misdirected - I am actually annoyed at the people who keep saying flat out untrue statements to people, like the guys who told you that the full size contract has more volume than the mini.

Definitely just stick to the mini Nikkei. Also, who is giving you free data for the mini? That sounds nice.

Thank you for the informations mangolassi.

Do you consider overnight information and points for your trading strategies since there is huge volume traded during the night session?

Nah, I only consider the data during stock market hours. I don't even chart the 15 minutes before the stock market opening, similar to how a lot of people trade the ES (can be decent volume before and after stock market hours, but only the stock market hours are charted + 15 minutes afterward). I don't use volume profiling in my trading whatsoever, so I don't know if what I do will be valid for you. For me, the price action of the intraday session is sufficient for my needs.

I'm not an expert by any means, and am keeping things simple as I learn and get better.

I am using the free package (package 3). In my opinion, Sierra is the best platform out there.

Hi Everyone, I'm a US expat living in Singapore and decided to join the historical tick data pity party as it seems everyone is going around the same circles with this. CQG does offer historical tick data for the Osaka bases Nikkei mini. It's very reasonably priced at about $200 US for a years worth of tick data and is even formatted in a way that's friendly to Ninja Trader.

I can not for the life of me though figure out how to create a chart in NT with it! I will say I haven't looked at NT in a couple years so may be missing something. I've got a txt file of sample data from 12-15 perhaps someone that's more experienced will have better luck generating a tick chart. Will be following this thread and open to doing a chat room as others have mentioned.

Cheers

Brokers offering Mini Nikkei Osaka

Hello guys,
Has anyone heard recently of another broker offering Osaka mini Nikkei trading besides Interactive Brokers and AMP Futures? I was happily trading with IB until as a "birthday present" received an email that I now need over $100K liquid net worth to continue trading futures. Seems a bit overkill for a $20K notional contract. Meanwhile, AMP Futures monthly data fees are outrageous compared to IB.

Are there any other alternatives out there?

$29 is kind of a lot for one instrument... but it is CQG data. It is FAR better than the data offered by IB.

Yes, I'm sure CQG is very good. But I was just using a simple trend following strategy with 1-5m candles. The IB data was good enough for me.

I was just browsing and found this other broker -- Wisdom Trading. Osaka Mini was listed in their trading instruments. Never heard of these guys. Apparently an IB for RJO'Brien, Phillip Futures, and a couple others. I sent them an email to inquire about their rates. If any good I'll post back here.
