@madLyfe.

I think it is worth reconsidering this decision. Try it for a couple of months to see if it benefits you. $5 is not much. If you know what to look for I think the NYSE tick is one of the best leading indicator for futures.

Cheers
DJ

I see this thread is extremely old, but thought I would revive it as I continue to notice similar situations. I chat with a couple traders who use tradestation and the variance between them and Ninja/CQG makes interpreting the TICK pretty difficult. It is not a flat number difference, so I may read -200 where they have +50. Other times it matches, other times it is more.

I read earlier in the thread that this is based on update intervals which each data feed can do as they please, there is no standard. Does anyone here using CQG use TICK as a reliable "read" on market conditions, tradestation folks use the 0 point often to determine strength or weakness if pullback are unable to get past the 0 mark. However if I use that same logic and mine goes to -200 I would not see it the same way. This is one of the frustrating things about non standardized data.

Is it not a case where you can modify the intervals to match the readings you get from other platforms?
I am interested in testing tick values on CQG across not only NYSE but also on ags and sorts products and then also other indices.
Does anyone have any experience on that? Or using tick indicators on say sugar, cocoa, corn etc
I use CQG and a proprietary system.
