By crunched, do you mean the column width was not wide enough to display what was in the field, and you mistook the exit time for the entry time?

BTW, what does OE here mean?

Y.. Order Entry platform..

Order execution, haha. That got me wondering for a while, too.

My apologies with this.. typically OE platforms will not be this off and I've used Tradestation and TOS so I was a bit disturbed by what I was perceiving...ha

CQG versus Rithmic

I guess the one point not previously mentioned is that with CQG you can have your OCO's held on the server, not just locally on your machine, which I don't believe is possible with Rithmic, and certainly not with Zenfire.

If the feeds were otherwise highly comparable, then that would swing me toward CQG in a big way.

Rithmic allows it currently via their R-Trader platfrom. It is a free platform that will work with any platform that streams Rithmic while boith could be tied up to the same account.

PM with any questions about optimusfutures (800) 771-6748 (561) 367 8686. THERE IS A SUBSTANTIAL RISK OF LOSS IN FUTURES TRADING.

Rithmic on Ninjatrader

Finally Rithmic is not more linked to Vision / Optimus using Ninjatrader front end.

With Ninjatrader 7.1000.19 the user can connect to Rithmic feed provided by other FCMs such as AMP.

Given this thread, now with AMP you can benefit of CQG, Rithmic or TTNet feeds and choose your front ends accordingly.

Just an happy customer.

Rithmic with AMP is a new offering becoming available just this week at AMP. At least that's what all the marketing stuff I've gotten from AMP is telling me so I doubt there's anyone here familiar enough with AMP/Rithmic that may be able to weigh in. With AMP I have NinjaTrader/CQG. As far as I know and the little bit that I know is that there are technological differences between the two data feeds but other than that the simple skinny for me Rithmic is far more stable and a much rock solid on connection as opposed to CQG. I get to see periodic disconnects with CQG that can last from just a few short seconds and up to a minute whereas I have yet to see this happen with Rithmic.

Both are unfiltered.
Their commissions on Rithmic are a bit cheaper than on CQG.
They don't have Eurex on Rithmic (they say it's coming soon, but I wouldn't hold my breath).
On CQG you have to pay EUR23 monthly for Eurex data.

Also CQG has server side OCO's whereas Rithmic does not, although AMP give you free access to the web based R-Trader platform so you could create your own directly there.

For what it is worth, I have been demoing side by side all the last week on NT Rithmic via Optimus and CQG via AMP and to the naked eye I cannot see a difference in the timing of the data coming in. The NT T&S window shows exactly the same data incl trades correctly marked as at the ask or bid.

During this time I have had one Rithmic disconnection for 9 minutes at 1.30am USA ET one day and no CQG disconnects all week.

Just my NZ 2 cents
