If you need also really unfiltered Tick Data there are some ticks missing on the TT feed so on Tick / volume charts you need another reliable feed - I have IQ-feed thatīs quality and about 112 Euros with basic feed and Eurex .. if you trade any time based charts / setups the TT feed should be (from my experience) excellent and enough.

I trade on my crossland account only Eurex (with Ninjatrader / TT), not time but tick based trade dicisions I make with Ninjatrader / IQ feed on an extra computer.

Thanks @resist, I trade with Crossland on Eurex with Ninjatrader / TT also. I have been looking at Kinetick / IQFeed, and maybe I will get a trial and compare the two feeds.

Math. A gateway drug to reality.

Yes, I am sure. It started showing up on my statement when they opened AMP Clearing.

You need to take it up with AMP, because others are not getting charged with that additional $1 clearing fee on top of the published commissions. see post #882

Take all AMP pricing stuff to their thread. Keep this thread for Zen Fire discussion.

Sent from my LG Optimus G Pro

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)

We have never noticed ourselves TT FIX adapter data feeds missing ticks. We have only noticed a problem with bid volume and ask volume. We also offer our own futures feeds but they are not needed for TT unless you want accurate bid volume or ask volume.

So if I understand correctly, Zenfire is basically a spin-off of the original Rithmic technology.

My broker DeepDiscountTrading is now offering the Rithmic feed for NinjaTrader.

I was using the TT feed on NinjaTrader for a long time with no issues.

But I think I'm going to try out the Rithmic feed to see if I can feel any difference between the two.

Yes Zen-Fire did run the Rithmic software but they used their own hardware , network and exchange connectivity. (Zen-Fire management can correct us if we are wrong, but this is what we remember being told).


We see a lot of good comments about Optimus Futures. The best support when using Rithmic with Sierra Chart is with Optimus Futures. One nice thing is they did a whole series of instructional videos about Sierra Chart.

DeepDiscountTrading also told me that my Rithmic Login would be compatible to both the NinjaTrader platform and to the SierraChart platform "simultaneously".

This is nothing new. The same feed tied to your account should across all platforms.

PM with any questions about optimusfutures (800) 771-6748 (561) 367 8686. THERE IS A SUBSTANTIAL RISK OF LOSS IN FUTURES TRADING.

gonna try that next week. iqfeed, cts t4 and sc futures feed all worked fine for tick charts, my tick charts were useless with zenfire, even though the nt dom with zenfire and sc/iqfeed were in synch most of the time, so i guess zenfire didnīt send all ticks?
