Don't have a specific IP address but been running ping tests to CQG Web Trader. don't really have a baseline to compare these tests with Zen but my general feel after years with Zen is that continuum executions are slower. if I'm sensing this by feel and sight probably not a good sign. I am located in Hawaii and my avg ping lately is ~110ms

this might be a little off topic, if so please feel free to direct me to the proper thread.

I just switched to continuum due to the mirus/zenfire issue and I'm curious to ping their trade servers to see the response time. I trade CL which I believe trades in chicago and I since I have my trade server very near the exchange I would like to see how it compares, previously with zenfire I was getting 1ms ping time.

So, anybody know the ip address that I could test with continuum ?

That url is most likely for their web server, I doubt that that is the same as their trade routing server, but of course in your case you incur the extra delay between your computer and their website.

In my case, host my trading server remotely in Chicago collocated near the exchange, so it's a whole different set up.

But thanks for the input.

A "netstat -n" or looking at which addresses are used by NinjaTrader.exe (using the Windows Performance Monitor) will tell you the real truth, but here are few CQG addresses.
In your case, my dear Jose , you should be connected to the first address pool, which should be not too from your machine.

@sam028 How does Nt handle these connection pools. I know when I do -netstat I get 6 to 8 different connections showing up. Does NT route order to server that is closest? I have never really looked behind scenes at how NT was handling this so it is interesting. Also want to make sure get full benefit of server close to exchanges. In other words don't want order being sent to further server killing benefit of being close.

"The day I became a winning trader was the day it became boring. Daily losses no longer bother me and daily wins no longer excited me. Took years of pain and busting a few accounts before finally got my mind right. I survived the darkness within and now just chillax and let my black box do the work."

I hope so, but I'm not a CQG user, and do not have the source code o the NinjaTrader CQG adapter, so I can't say. CQG or @NinjaTrader may have the answer.
I only put some of the CQG servers IP, there are much more servers in most location.

About previous @neko333 post and the hot question "What is my real latency, from my mouse click/strategy order signal, to the exchange book", I will write a small strategy which will send a limit order far away from the current price, and cancel it ASAP.
That will give an idea of the "real" latency, not the only latency to the data feed servers and the broker's orders servers. It won't be perfect, because depending on the order type and price, its priority in the book will be different, but it should give a good picture.

CQG API handles this. As I understand it, it connects to a server, runs pings across all of its POPs and then establishes a connection with the one returning the lowest latency.

Well, That's not the case for me, coming from Taipei where ping to HK sites rarely above 60ms but once across the Pacific it's rarely below 200ms.

I am looking at the windows resource meter now and it's connecting to States, not HK servers.
