so if i only want cme data i should pay 5usd and not 15usd.

i also read, you can get only the "top of the book" , which reduces the fees from 5usd to 1usd!

anybody can confirm this?

I dont use orderbook, so top of book would be ok for me.

If you want CME it is $5 only. I will find out about top of the book and if there is any reduction for that.

Update: it is $1 if you ONLY want top of the book.

NBBO / inside bid and ask, no depth

Mike

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)

Mike

Just to clarify, does that mean you would see the bid size at the best bid, the ask size at the best ask, but nothing above or below? And does this "top of book" apply to both futures and futures options quotes?

How would a footprint and time and sales work?

are there any consequences to trading with top of the book data only other than just not being able to view the rest of the depth?

At Cannon I was grandfathered for a year. Next year I will have to start paying the fee, looking at the CME only option at the moment.

At AMP and also Mirus/Dorman and I am grandfathered at both as well.

I believe you can transfer your 'grandfather' status from one broker to another until next year.
