Data access: Ninjatrader for charting and something like CQG Trader for entry?

I'm looking to switch brokers, and I'm curious about multiplatform data access. Say I switch to AMP and go with CQG Trader (or I go to S5 with S5 Trader) could I access that datafeed from Ninjatrader for charting? Or is the datafeed not accessible outside CQG Trader/S5 Trader?

(Just for clarity, I'd be paying for the new datafeed directly from S5 or AMP, rather than buying a feed directly from Kinetic/DTN/eSignal etc. In case it matters, I'd get CME w/ depth available in NT.)

Thank you!

It doesn't look like S5 works with Ninjatrader.

Here is where I checked. https://stage5trading.com/platform-solutions/

I don't know if it is worth it to pay the fees for NT, just for charting anyway. I would look at another product that the broker provides with their service. (Or vice versa look what platforms the signal provider works with)

I am with AMP and using the CQG Datafeed and Ninjatrader. This allows only 1 simultaneous connection at a time. You can have a 2nd login but Datafeed fees will double (thats the latest info I have). Ninjatrader unfortunately can not be connected to S5 Datafeed which is Gain.

In my opinion it would be best to talk to the brokers in consideration what they can offer to support your platform setup.

I'm not with AMP but my experience is similar to @MichaelH, in that I too believe you need to have two separate accounts (and thus double the fees).

I do what you're looking to do now, i.e. I have a QTrader platform which I use for both charting and order entries, and I have a NT platform which I use mainly for charting and market replay.

I have 2 separate data feeds for this, hence I pay twice the cost.


If anyone knows of a way to go around that I'd love to hear from them...

Thank you

Thank you all for the replies! I think I got the answer I was looking for, which is that it is very broker/feed dependent, so I will check with the broker.

Thanks again!
