It's snapshot data. You are missing ticks, and also only receiving them in a "burst" fashion (every 250ms if I recall, or maybe it's every 100ms). You aren't missing just a few ticks, you are missing a bunch of them.

If you use exotic bars, like range bars or non-time based bars of any kind, you really should use a better data feed.

Mike:

I guess I will have to look at the charts side by side on the Ninjatrader/ AMP/CQG feed vs the Ninjatrader/IB feed on the range bars to see how bad they look. I just assumed that IB would at least print a high or low in a range which would print.... giving a similar looking bar...since its based on a range of a low and a high of a 15 tick range in may case.

It would just be convenient and keeping my machine lean and trim if I could package IB and Ninja using Bracket Trader to handle the details of my trade. Otherwise I will have to run AMP/CQG to fill the charts on one computer and IB on another computer to do the trades with Bracket Trader.

That actually may work out better anyway.....

Thanks,

Rithmic, Zen Fire, CTS, IB, and BigTick (Mirus) all offer server side OCO I believe, but it will depend on your platform as to what is supported.

I have no comment on CQG except that I would never use AMP Futures to get it.

Mike

Whats up with AMP ?

Hoping someone can help me.

I'm a client with IB and using ninja. What is the cheapest way I can get unfiltered data for ES, CL, and forex? I know kinetick is an option but they are fairly expensive for me right now considering im a new trader and am not working with much capital.

If you have multibroker licence first connect to ninjatrader demo and then connect to IB live account

NT demo gives unfiltered tick data? Better than IB?

I'd really like to just get a data feed and do this right. Is there nothing else cheaper than kinetick that IB can use?

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.

So it appears that using either Rithmic or Zenfire with IB would be the best and cheapest option... Would you agree?

Now I just need to see if I can use either or those with IB.
