Data Feed: How do you confirm Accuracy vs Historical tick data provided.

How do others confirm the quality of the Historical tick data provided to them by a data feed provider (example
IQ feeds 120 days)

Quality defined as accuracy vs the past live data feed.

Has studies being done on how good the feeds really is?
Benchmarks etc.
Or do you just take the vendors word that their feed is accurate.



How do you then confirm the Accuracy of your live tick data for that day(eg 13 Feb 13) vs the Historical tick data provided for that day (13 Feb 13) by the data feed provider?

Has been talked about in detail here:

https://futures.io/elite-circle/3873-analysis-comparison-different-data-feeds-platforms-bid-ask-studies.html

All the good/bad feeds are listed in that thread when it comes to accuracy.

IQFeed is at the very top of the list.

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)
