NYSE Tick data is snapshot data, and not all data suppliers use the same interval for updating it. 1sec, 2 sec or 6 sec snapshots will get you different highs and lows.

There is a thread somewhere buried in this forum, where all this is explained and where the different data feeds were compared. I admit that I am unable to find that thread.

Mad,

I have noticed the same thing. One of the reasons why I switched to CGQ with AMP was because of the availability to get the TICK. Have you contacted the broker. It makes no sense that it does not update live.

Is this a demo account? If yes, real-time index data such as TICK is not available in real-time on CQG for demo accounts.
