Thank you for changing the symbols. So the question is, which DMI will you trust as being correct? I'm not suprised that ZF & TS match. They are both delivered by UDP (incomplete by definition). I'm also not suprised that IQFeed is different than those, because it's TCP (all data). TickForce2 is VERY different as well (TS = -0.91 vs IQ = -1.80). What does that indicator represent?

biq question I have is that the tick data is where the differences lie...
virtually no difference in timed data....

as far as what I trust is true...the jury is still out....been with TS over 11 years....
using this PB for almost 4..every day....u get to the point where you know what
color the bars should be without looking
when an indicator responds as if its trending when on other feeds its clearly sideways
(white or low DMI vales) and it's obvious based on price action it should be sideways that's troubling...
will continue to evaluate...

Thanks,

Lee

Lee,

Let's agree that IQFeed provides "different" signals than TS and ZF, and will continue to do so. Whether they are "false" depends on which you believe to be correct. I am not the least bit familiar with those indicators, and since the IQFeed signals haven't been tested in a trading situation against the TS & ZC signals, who is to say which is accurate and more valuable?


Quoting 
also why is volatility indicator calculated different in IQ....decimals are off

Again, because TS & ZF round up to 753, and IQFeed shows 752.75, isn't it possible that IQFeed is more accurate? Don't think it's a support issue.

Use this existing thread if you want to rehash a comparison of data feeds such as IQFeed vs Zen Fire, we do not need a split topic:

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

It seems we have strayed off topic in this thread. When you contacted your broker, what did they say for the reason (title of thread) "Zenfire RT & Historical Discrepancies?"

Mike

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.
