broker with fast reliable data for ES

Hi guys,

I'm looking for a broker with a fast reliable data feed for swing trading the ES during AM hours. Maybe 500 RTs per month. I would also require historical data for testing of strategies/indicators.
I'm trading 5min PA through Ninja's chart trader.

I would like to have my base account in foreign currency (EUR/AUD/NZD). How often does one have to convert between USD and foreign currency - daily?

Any suggestions?

Merry Christmas to all here on the forum.

Thomas

Note that Velocity doesn't have backfill unless you are using Sierra Chart. Also, I don't know how they handle foreign currency, but converting your money every day is going to get expensive. You might consider leaving some in USD then simply hedging it in another account with a spot foreign currency position.

Mirus from NZ

I use Mirus and ZenFire - no issues at all. Reliability is very high. Latency is about 230ms from NZ, but this does not affect my trading style.

I fund my account with Mirus by converting NZD to USD and take profits out the reverse way.

Would get expensive to currency convert frequently. My NZ bank charges about NZ$22 to send money and Mirus charge about US$25 to send my profits back to NZ. Both ways timing is quick though - only takes max of 2 days for the funds to move.
