Thanks for you reply Sam. I just wanted to know how reliable the Ninja /CQG and since it seem's to be a new combo dont want to be the dear on head lights.


Well I am still having big connection problems with CQG. The fills are generally excellent when fully connected BUT yesterday I inadvetantly entered a position when the connection was orange (but still connected) and had about 6 ticks slippage on TF. It then spent half an hour flicking back and forth from green connected to orange connected, so I gave up for the rest of the day.

AMP customer support does not seem to want to answer my emails either.

If I can't trust the data feed it makes it totally unusable. For me the connection is far worse than Zenfire ever was. Am I the only one having problems with CQG? I had really high hopes for it too.

I think I would pick up the good old fashion telephone and call them when you are having trouble.

I'm assuming your connection is having to cross the pond? You might try doing a trace route to get a better idea of where your packets are going and how long each hop is taking. PingPlotter is pretty good for that.

I would be interested in reviewing the logs/trace files to see if I can learn anything from your experience. If you wish to take me up on my offer, please start NinjaTrader, and send me an email via the menu Help > Mail To Support and include the subject "For RayD from britkid99".

Thanks for the offer Ray. I will email you this afternoon when I get back.
I have Ninjatrader running so there should be something to see by then.

I was told be my contact at AMP that

" the Zenfire account will no longer work once you switch to CQG. That if you want to run Zenfire also you either have to sign up for a demo each month or setup a sub account so you could have one account for each connection."

Is this accurate?

I want to keep my Zenfire data feed but would also like to test drive the CQG feed for the Indexes when I am done trading for the day. Basically just switch the feeds. I do have a funded account at AMP.

That is correct, but I would say just stick with Zenfire. I've experienced more than 1 issue w/ CQG. Tried it on a sim acct and on my live acct and both were displeasing experiences, to say the least.

Many thanks to the site and all the contributors. Great source of info.

I had issues w/ CQG in the begginning and had to switch back to Zen Fire. I went back to CQG about 6 weeks ago and have no complaints as of yet. That will teach me to be a first adopter.

Mike

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)
Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.

I use Optimus with a rithmic feed. Zenfire feed is based on rithmic so with rithmic your are essentially getting pure feed that does not go through zenfire servers.

I find the combination of Optimus and rithmic to work great.

Matt at Optimus is very helpful and makes himself available to talk. I would suggest calling him if you have questions.

"The day I became a winning trader was the day it became boring. Daily losses no longer bother me and daily wins no longer excited me. Took years of pain and busting a few accounts before finally got my mind right. I survived the darkness within and now just chillax and let my black box do the work."
