any feedback about reliability/quality of Continuum historical data info?

Any of you experienced problems with continuus historical data for futures?
I'm on a SIM account, and I can see they have considerable size of historical data (day, minute) - however, how good is it? Did any compared it with Kinetick/other?

thanks

Continuum chart compared to Tradestation - quite different


I compared a chart with data from Continuum to one from Tradestation (from Eminiwatch) and I was surprised to find that my chart has many fewer bars. I know tick charts are different depending on where the chart/bars start, but in my chart it's quite clear that it has many fewer bars.

Can anyone else with continuum comment on this? Do you have a way to compare with another data feed?

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)

That was an interesting thread. I wasn't aware of this, but I was observing that the market activity seemed much lower over the past month and I only took a couple trades. Now I know why.

It's going to take a while to analyze the impact.

some volume issues

I don't think there's an explanation for the attached.
Just wanted to see if any of you saw a similar thing.
To me, it looks like a volume data problem, and I'm sure their technical staff will fix it in no time.
I would like to mention that their Support people are very, very helpful and fast.

Thanks

It's interesting that volume was so low the past few days because of rollover.

Problem solved - it was an old problem solved a few weeks ago - but I still had the old data.
Guys in Support were really helpful for me.
