Some of those categories are: Futures Broker of the Year, Options Broker of the Year, Trading Platform of the Year, Options Platform of the Year, Mobile Platform of the Year, Data Feed of the Year, and Trading Product of the Year. There are also an additional six categories that are focused on user contributed content on our site, including: Member of the Year, Webinar of the Year, Thread of the Year, Journal of the Year, Programmer of the Year, and Indicator of the Year.

We then opened our voting system so that traders are the world could vote for their favorite in each category. When the voting closed, we selected the top three winners in each category and have awarded them as 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place (Gold, Silver, Bronze awards).

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.

Folks currently my Ninjatrader is powered thru a CQG Continuum feed.

Is there a way for me to also have market data into a 3rd party app by utilizing the CQG feed since it is already arriving at my PC. I have a need to power Ninja as well as a 3rd party app.

any thoughts will be helpful

thnx

Hello Paps,

as far as I know, you need an additional log in from CQG if you want to run a second application at the same time; and they charge an "additional log in fee" (USD 10 per month) for that. And - unlike Rithmic - they also charge you double for the data itself and - again, as far as I know - also USD 10 for WAPI for each platform.
It seems there are some changes going on right now (also Rithmic implemented a new USD 20 monthly fee for their R-API+). So all this might change...

Keep in mind that I don't use Ninja. What I wrote is based on the info I recently got from my broker (Stage 5, clearing through Dorman), as I might make the move from Rithmic to CQG. While currently only using Jigsaw's RapidTrader Pro, I also want to power Sierra Charts with the data feed soon, so I asked about the exact fees that will be due for 2 platforms.

There might be differences between brokers (I heard that AMP will not charge above-mentioned USD 10 for CQG's WAPI).; so, you better ask your broker, too.
Maybe also others (who already actually use CQG data for two applications) might jump in...

Sorry for not being able to help more.

@paps

yep, my arrangement is pretty much how Henning described: two CQG log-ins, one for CQG platform, the other one for either NT or RTP. Double data feed fee. I'm with Dorman.

I suppose you could write a NinjaTrader indicator or market analyzer that forwards the data to other applications.

Hello xplorer,

i want to establish a backup solution to ninjatrader running with continuum. I've asked NT and they said that it cost 25$ for a second data stream. I couldn't figure out if there are further additional cost's when running CQG Trader (or similar - only emergency Trade Management needed) and where i can get the software from. I hope that i can see all NinjaTrader created trades within the CQG Software.

Please can you describe your CQG setup in more detail?

Regards,
Koepisch

A few questions.

- Are you looking for a parallel backup system OR
- A fail-over in case Continuum becomes unavailable OR
- A fail-over in case NinjaTrader is unavailable

Seeing as @NinjaTrader asked some valid questions, it would be useful to understand if NT could break down and itemize that 25$ second data stream.

What I can tell you is that being running CQG QTrader would cost you 40$/mo, runnning CQG Trader would be 25$/mo, and on top you'd need to add 0.25$ per filled contract. This in addition to the data feed.

Hi there,

my main purpose is to have a fail-over system to manage my trades within CQG Trader at all time. So i think it's more related to your first option. What are the steps to get the "CQG Trader" working? Is it all managed by you or must i lease the "CQG Trader" directly from CQG? Please differ between cost for software and data feed (EUREX FDAX too).

EDIT: CQG QTrader is also an option

Thanks,
Koepisch

Thanks. If it was the other options, I would have suggested that you use CQGM (mobile) which can be accessed easily. With respect to CQG Trader, your best off to send an email to brokeragesupport@ninjatrader.com and reference this post in Futures.IO. They will be able to provide you exact costs for this platform as a second logon for your account.
