MBTrading Data Error-Lag

Has anyone experienced any issues with the data from MBT? Over the last couple of weeks I've noticed the following:

1) Differences between tick based data and time based data, see the four white background charts. All four charts are MBT data.
2) Lag when comparing MBT to Optimus, see the T&S and L2 shots. (The comparative time on the NY clock would be 13:07.)
Notice how the time and volume do not match in the first six shots when the pit session is open but do coincide once the session is closed and volume and volatility have dropped off. (Most of the times are EST +6).
The T&S window on the left is Optimus and the L2 is MBT. (At one point the volume is off by over 1000 contracts).

Please let me know if the screen-shots are confusing.

I think what you are seeing is "normal" and shows that some broker feeds are not all that great. I believe MBT data feed was mentioned here, check:

https://futures.io/elite-circle/3873-analysis-comparison-different-data-feeds-platforms-bid-ask-studies.html

If not you could post your findings there and see if anyone else can duplicate.

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)
