It wont help that I cannot be specific but, I am switching from the European session to the Australaisin session. So I need data for most markets in this time zone until I figure out exactly how I want to trade it.

I also very very much would prefer if I could continue using NT and associated add-ons , and also not pay $$$$$$$$$$$$ commish or for data.

Has anyone found a good solution to this problem?

It is an axiomatic fact that while you meditate you are speaking with your own spirit. In that state of mind you put certain questions to your spirit and the spirit answers: the light breaks forth and the reality is revealed.

I have an IB account.

Only really starting out in futures but I found a few weird things with IB data on the DOM. Would prefer to have better data from the start of the learning process

Yeah if you use order flow you need data like https://www.iqfeed.net/ as an example. The only reason I said what I did was because it seemed to me you did not want to spend to much on data. You could get an broker account that has a Rithmic data feed and not pay for data separate like in the IQFeed example.

Thanks for the help.

It looks like I will have to something like this or maybe switch to MultiCharts.

IB is a great execution feed but not a good data feed. They bundle their data into "packets" or "snap shots" basically group it into chunks because it must be easier for them to deal with the massive amount they have to doing it this way.

My 2 cents would be to find a platform you like and can live with and then focus your energies on learning it inside and out. Switching will slow you down as far as reaching goals. But can be good if your going to commit to the choice, but the grass is never quite as green on the other side as it once appeared to be. You end up trading "these" problems for "those" problems type thing. Otherwise relearning a platform is counterproductive IHMO. There is so much to understand in this business, yourself being the hardest part, that making it harder by introducing a new and large variable like a platform only slows the process...again IMHO.

I had this exact same issue and still working through it. I've moved from FDAX to HSI on HKFE.

To continue to use NT with a licence bought after mid 2015 and get unfiltered data I have had to pay for Esignal Premier and connect their data manager to Ninjatrader (pretty easy process). The data from Esignal in real time is rock solid and I can't see a difference to my old data provider CQG. However they annoyingly do not offer Level 2 data on HKFE which isnt the end of the world for me but still it would be nice. Their back fill tick data is not so great with lots of bad ticks which again isnt the end of the world for me as I am trading day by day so yesterday's data doesn't matter for me, in fact I don't even bother to load it generally. Their back fill minute data is rock solid and no bad ticks.

Now if you have a Ninjatrader Licence bought prior to some date in mid 2014 I think you can plug pretty much any CQG datafeed into it from any broker and their are quite a few that offer it. You may want to investigate this if you purchased it prior to that...

Hope that helps.

I have had a bit of progress on this one.

After a heap of emails to many different parties involved I found a solution to most of my issues.

I will be able to use NT through AMP which solves most of my gripes.

If anyone else is having issues with this PM me
