I think it's worth everyone (especially Tick Collector) remembering that the quality of TT or any other ISV's price feed is going to depend on the FCM's implementation.

If your FCM/IB is some cheap back street operation who puts the ISV gateway server on cheap servers, across cheap telco/ISP lines, guess what, you're going to get delays. If your FCM is a primo tier 1 outfit, chances are your experience will be much better.

As for DDT, well as we know, they use Crosslands as an FCM - who as far as Im aware are a GCM at CME and others. That would suggest a healthy balance sheet, and thus a high standard of IT infrastructure. A lot of the Chicago prop community use Crosslands - so that says something.

JMO.

Crossland drops TT

I just found out that Crossland will soon no longer support TT data. This affects DDT, Active Futures, and others that clear with them.

If you are using DDT and Sierra Chart, these are the choices:
1) Rithmic Feed for .30 cents per contract.
2) CQG Feed for .10 cents per contract & $10/Mth.
3) CTS Feed for .50 cents per contract with a $25/Mth "Minimum".

Rithmic is slightly more expensive, except there is no historical tick data. Historical data is minute data only.
CQG is less per contract but more per month, and it is only for trade execution. A separate subscription data feed is needed for charting.
CTS is much more expensive.

For me it's down to two choices:
1) Use Rithmic or CQG, and subscribe to Sierra's data feed
2) Find another broker whose clearing firm will continue to offer TT

TT FIX

Transworld Futures' FCM is Ironbeam and they are also discontinuing TT FIX data.

The only FCMs that still offer TT are AMP Futures and Advantage Futures, and their Introducing Brokers.

I can't get a consistent reason why TT FIX is being dropped by many FCMs. It ranges from 'risk management' to 'no need for so many feeds'.

DDT homepage

Hello,
this is the link to get info on DDT:

Deep Discount Futures Trading Commodity Brokers Best Low Rates Cheap Commissions High Frequency Systems Exchange Members

I'm very satisfied with Howard Lender (broker) and Crossland (FCM).
Very reliable service from them. No frills.

For Ninja Trader they offer Continuum (CQG) too for 15 cent/contract + 10$ monthly (real time data included)

Is there a risk of Amp and Advantage dropping TT as well?
