AMP / CQG

Has anyone gone back to Zen after trying CQG?

Amp is my broker.

I'm still with CQG. Is there a reason to change back. I always heard the CQG was great data. Is that not true?

I'm not real sure which to use, to be honest.

I just switched on Friday and got everything running smoothly a bit too late to trade.

I may have received some incorrect info on needing to change to trade the M6E. If the data
and fills are fine, there would be no reason to switch back.

just feeling it out

I've been using all the same symbols as I did with Zen. What is M6E. Is that 6E?

CQG, without question, is a superior feed to Zen-Fire, and it's cheaper. I have access to both, have used both, and can say so confidently from experience with both. CQG is more consistently timely, and more accurate.

I'm currently trying to switch that to my main trade routing as I opened up a small account there. I was hoping I could get OCO Brackets to place trades in CQG trader, but I'm waiting to hear from my broker on that. They were there when I was running the demo trying it out for those 3 days, but upon logging in with live credentials that went away.

With Zen Fire there is a difference depending on the broker (gateway server). For example, one broker may have a lot of trouble or disconnects, and another broker not --- both using Zen Fire. Then of course a third broker, using the original Rithmic source, may be even different still.

I am not sure about CQG 100%, but it seems there are similar situations/configurations. For example, CQG is known to be extremely reliable, yet there are a lot of posts on the forum about people who use Amp Futures and get CQG thru them having problems here and there.

So it might be useful to list what broker you are using when talking about CQG. CQG thru Amp vs CQG thru Velocity may be different for example, because of the FCM gateway servers. Again, I don't know this for sure, just going based on what users have said in the forum. I think a third option still is those who subscribe to CQG directly from CQG itself, and not through your broker at all.

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)
Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.

I did the AMP/CQG trial, but couldn't get it to work, so I gave up.

However, AMP then contacted me and I just haven't had time to play around with it since then. So, no input except there was a problem even getting it setup but that was about 5 weeks ago.

There is a difference between Ninjatrader w/CQG and CQG's own products. Ninjatrader has their own server at the CQG facility. The data is the same, but the infrastructure is not. There is no difference between brokers when using CQG Trader or IC.
