Spot FX vs Futures FX ( 6E ) with CQG

I've been trading with CQG for a period of time, today i'm having some different candle when compared with Spot FX (FXCM broker) with CQG. I wonder anyone having the same issue as me today at EURO/USD ( 6E) or it's a normal condition/situation for fx futures. Thx

Spot FX trades 24 hours a day while FX futures close for 1 hour each day. That one hour gap might explain the difference you see between those charts.

If you have questions about our services at FXCM please send me a Private Message.

those are not gap, those are the misalignment when the US market started at 830 and news at 1000 respectively. i know unregulated market always have problem but i never know futures also have the same problem. a bit disappointed

This is what I have with Rithmic data for the 6E on the December contract as the currencies rolled over on Thursday. The graph shows the same period as your chart.
My chart looks like the red box on your white graph and the yellow box on the black graph (I can't tell which is your forex graph and which is your 6E graph without the labels). Futures data should be the same for everybody though with the centralized exchange unless an individual data provider has an issue.
