Hello jinhar,
I have contacted FXall for CQG + FXall solution. I wait for a response.
For the Feed, I would like to have EBS Feed which is the base Feed for EURUSD and few other contracts.
TenFore has offered it. But I havn't got it yet. If eSignal has it too I will take his Feed.

Best regards. wiosna

Jinhar Esignal is for sure a quality feed but someday I'd like to get this software with their so-called "institutional quality feed".

Check out the video comparing their feed to Esignal.

Integrated Real-time Stock Trading Data with Wave59 Pro.


The software with forex data is like $315 on a monthly lease no contract.

For Forex The best datafeed has to be esignal .. It comes on the expensive range but It has most of the Brokers data feed in it so if u are like me .. u can have two different ecn datafeeds at one time Other then that i would suggest use data feeds of the broker u are trading with as thats the best data to trade on specially for scalpers because few pips difference will make a lotta difference at the end of the day and for that again esignal is wonderful as it has data from mbt pfg Fxcm etc etc list goes on .. If u are using fxcm then there are other data feed options which will be cheaper but in the end considering all this and specially the most imp thing to have data from ur broker Esignal is the best out there .. u cant go wrong with it .. !!! Hope that helps ..

Best Regards
Jinhar

Hello,

Ebs feed will be useful for you if you are trading with ebs .. The best feed in fx is the one of ur broker .. For example i use Fxcm feed which is my broker and Mbt feed as backup .. there are times when the difference is of 5-10 pips on both the feeds .. at such time if i dont have my brokers feed it will be difficult for me to see it as The other feed wont show it .. So i would suggest you to go with ur broker feed as primary and ebs as secondary if its a must for you .. Hope that helps ...

Best Regards
Jinhar

Poocher I have seen such in the past .. but for a small account u need to look at the overall cost effect on ur monthly expense... and to have esignal with Multiple Data for fx is much better and cheaper .. as i said i am a scalper .. and in the end .. The few pips Difference in data Builds up nicely .. and my main platform for charting is multicharts and esignal works wonderfully with it ... very fast Other data feeds which i have tried with multicharts i faced chart loading problems .. i have no ideas it was from my end or from the data feeds end .. But esignal works well with multicharts .. and thats wad it matters in the end .. fast reliable data solid platform for charting .. Happy trading ..

Best Regards
Jinhar

Hello All,
A brief summary:
- CQG + FXall solution do not exists now;
- eSignal Feed, if you do not have FXCM account as jinhar, is interesting only for MBT Feed. MBT Feed is great (I have an account with them) but .. for Europe there too many interruptions;
- it seems to be an another solution for feeding: OnixS.
Good day of trading. wiosna

I agree that the feed from your broker is best . I am watching MB and Oanda at the same time and what varies is the lowest bid and highest ask .

Hello All,
I have uninstalled MultiChart, eSignal, MorningStar ... I stay with Ninja Trader + MBT and MetaTrader + The Collective FX. I did not find better for now. I begin to develop my own platform with some fragments of different open source softwares to accelerate this process. Only things I need.
Has somebody an experience with London Capital Group (LCG) ?
Best regards. wiosna

Hi,

I received a mail from Ninja telling me that for FX Spot trading with Ninja the supported brokers are: MBT, Interactive Brokers, Gain, PFG. How compare MBT with Interactive Brokers or with PFG? I'm looking to start with Ninja but honestly I don't' know where to open the live account?!?

If you want to trade forex spot with ninja trader you should go with MB or IB. I used both and they are good at forex spot. If you need to trade small size, MB is the only choice, if you'll trade full lots IB may be better, because of the funds compensation guarantee by the british state.

I used also GAIN and it was not a good experience, they are more or less a bucket shop.

I have heard good things about Dukascopy. They can be used with NT but you need a bridge that is a separate tool you need to purchase. Right now I am demoing PFG and they seem decent, but too early to tell
