What was the actual solution? I am just curious... thanks

Right-click and reload the historic data. Problem was with one of the servers feeding historic data. Once fixed, data needed to be reloaded into the ninja platform.
should you see any irregularities, report them immediately.

I have a doubt

is the same CQG data and Continuum data?

AMP futures offers Ninjatrader/CQG (no longer offered)
NinjatraderBrokerage offers Ninjatrader/Continuum by CQG

what is the different?

thanks

I had access to continuum in the past. Did not notice any difference between the two what so ever.
Run Q Trader that is a native CQG platform and see if you see any difference.

Thanks,

If you want to backtest based on data I would use IQFeed.

This is not instead, but rather in conjunction. CQG is an execution data feed, while IQFeed is data provider for back testing with lengthy history and accurate tick data. For example, to the best of my knowledge, Multicharts (.net) which a free platform we provide, has three years of back fill tick data for CQG. IQFeed could provide 5 as far as I know.

The $15 comes from the exchanges for all CME markets, and charged by each broker.
$25 inactivity is charged by your FCM/Broker and is not a problem if you have been told about it.

Pierre, this was NOT a good move to attach a document that reveals your name and account number.
This is what causes identity theft.

REMOVE IT ASAP!!!!

PS. It also says Optimus in your profile, and clearly you have moved on to another broker because we did not charge you ANY inactivity.

I know that :
The $15 comes from the exchanges for all CME markets, and charged by each broker.
$25 inactivity is charged by your FCM/Broker

but the problem is that was debt TWICE on a month
- The first time at the beginning of the month
- The second time at the end of the month
same label, twice on a month, each month, since many month

Anybody has the the same problem?
