Funny I was getting ready to ask this same question in this forum about NT / IB and data feeds..
Looks like if you have a NT license, and also have an account at IB, or other brokers, and you can get CME free data,
Not sure if this lasts very long, but seems like a nice add on to save costs on the data fee side.

Kinetick - Streaming real time quotes and hstorical market data CME Data Fee Waiver program

So I did read about some users having problems with getting Forex data and futures feed at the same time? Has this been resolved?

Hello ,,

I am using IB+NT since 3 months and I am satisfied ( using only time charts for day trading with futures indices and 6E )
Main reason for me was the low cost of commissions from IB .

Regards

yea that is why I am looking to get things switched over to them...
they have different options for the commissions, but could you let us know what you are paying for round turn futures trades?

I know their forex spreads are very tight.

For future indices ( DAX , CAC40 , ES , YM, NQ , 6E ) , the cost is 2 euros or dollards depending of the indice per trade ( of quantity = 1 in my case )

i use more than 20 brokers and 10 banks worldwide. ib is by far the best and cheapest WORLDWIDE.
ib and nt works fine for me trading futures and fx. i could not care less about margin requirements because i have a large stock portfolio there.
moving money is supereasy and totally free. the biggest benefit is that you never have to talk to anyone and that makes it error-free, fast and cheap.

I trade with Ninja & IB daily. It's fine for me.

I don't have much to add to that to be honest.

@DoinysusToast

Did you try using range or tick charts with IB? (currently using Kinetic, if IB work good on range charts i would like to switch to save on overhead.)

Thank in advance.

NT+IB works well with me. (scalping Futures). No difference with Velocity, except some indicators based on Tick (Tick rpm) or Volume (block trades) are very different due to IB Tick filtering I guess. Not a big deal.

I believe only in profits, not in prophets.

Yes - I tried tick charts - but they don't work.

I never tried range charts though...

Range charts will be wrong as well, as they are built on tick charts. Same with Renko charts, or any kind of chart that uses tick data.

IB's filtered snapshot tick data is equivalent to driving your car to work, and only opening your eyes once every few seconds on your way. The path might be the same, but you are missing data in between.

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)
