Newb needs help with Kinetick options?

I participated in the live Kinetick webinar today and I would like to go ahead and sign up but I could really use some beginner advice. Right now I am with IB and using NT as my platform. I am currently paper trading but only long enough to familiarize my all of the controls. To use Kintetick and their waiver, I would need to first purchase a live license from NT. My question though have more to do with what markets I will need to subscribe to with Kinetick. If I want to perhaps follow some stocks and trade some selected ETFs, what do I need to subscribe to? Kintetick customer service told me that the waiver only applies to CBOT, CME, COMEX, NYMEX. With that said, I'm considering whether I need the following:

AMEX Level 1
Down Jones Indexes
Nasdaq Level 1
Nasdaq OpenView
NYSE Level 1

Does it look to you like this would cover about anything that I would come across? Any of them that are a waste? My main weakness is that I don't know anything! There, I said it! LOL. As a new trader mainly focus on those ETF's and particular stocks, I don't know which indexes and markets I need to subscribe to. Any advice would be appreciated.

Snce Kintetick told me that those 4 items above are included, I'm guessing that I should check all of the boxes that have, for example anything with "CBOT" in it like:

CBOT
CBOT E-Mini

and for the Comex, check the boxes next to:

Comex
Comex Delayed

Do I have this correct? Thanks for your patience. I hope to one day look back at this post and laugh at how green I was. For now though, everything seems confusing.

I would suggest you email them exactly which products you need to receive and they will work up a plan for you. All the exchanges can be a bit confusing.

I have been emailing them back and forth and they have been helpful. Let me ask this; If I buy the nasdaq feed, do I need the openview? What exactly does that provide. I saw some technical information on google about it but what does that provide to me as a trader and do I need it as someone learning?

If I recall correctly, OpenView is Level 2. So if you want to see depth of market, then you need it. If you only care about the inside bid/ask, then no you don't need it.

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)
