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.

Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).

I think to remember, that the cqg server can be set by your broker.

Yes!
I am with AMP/CQG and just changed to Singapore server, the latency is now 70ms!
Thanks a lot! and Thanks to AMP's support. Just 5 min to solve my long-time problem!
For CME data NT will still connect directly to CQG's Chicago servers so ..
But at least I am not getting disconnect on trade route servers.

It's a complete miracle why Ninjatrader can't answer your question properly.

Continuum Connection Lost

Same problem here.

Have had numerous Continuum "connection lost" last Friday and yesterday (the only days I was trading recently) while my IQFeed remained stable all the time.
Looks like for us Europeans Continuum is not the best choice.

Last week I spoke with someone from Mirus support on the phone. He was very helpful and patient. I was able to connect to Continuum but I was not receiving real-time data and when I tried to place an order I would receive an "Commodity is disabled for trading at this time" error.

He suggested I do the following: (1) First repair the database then (2) reset the instruments, then restart NinjaTrader.

I did this once and started to receive an "InstrumentMetadataNotAvailablException" error. After doing the above two more times, I was able to place orders and it has been working since.

I think this resolution only applies to certain error conditions but it might be worth a try.

Hope this helps.

This fixed my problem. Thanks for sharing your solution, I hope it can help others too.

I have several clients who have disconnections from CQG, for about 8 to 10 days now.
I first though it was maybe a problem with my network providers, in Chicago, but I also have disconnections from my servers in NJ (screenshot), so it seems it's not on my side but on CQG network side.
I have a small monitoring script which is check an IB, CQG and IQFeed server every 10 seconds : IB is failing sometimes, IQFeed not, but CQG few times a day since I'm running this.
The servers were the monitoring is done are not using poor DSL/wifi, but 1 Gb/s symmetric links.

So, after the joke of having a server in Chicago having to take a ride to Dallas to communicate with a CQG server in Chicago (???), and the results from one of my clients comparing the fills latency between CQG and one of its competitors (40-70 ms with high standard deviation vs 4-8 ms, test made on the same Linux VPS with a C++ piece of code using directly CQG and its competitor low level API), it's maybe not the best option today.

Continuum and ASX SPI

I've been moved to Continuum and note that ASX SPI Index Futures Contract data seems to be available historically, but doesn't update live.

If the product is offered, shouldn't it be live updating? Or is what I'm experiencing normal, and I have to pay the relevant additional exchange fees to get ASX Futures products?

Just seems strange, and I'm hoping that the product is indeed free...

Any insights much appreciated,

You need to contact your broker to ensure your account is entitled to receive live data for these markets. Even if you are not entitled, you can receive historical data.
