I get it, the tick seems limited to 3 days, the minute long term back, but there are also symbols limitations, i think maybe due to the demo, for example i get CL data but it doesn't update in real time.

Take your Pips, go out and Live.
Luke.

Right.. (something was not working in the firt place) I even get about 6 months of tick data which is a good spanning time.

Will CQG be offered by other brokers than AMP Futures ?

This is a deal pretty much exclusive to AMP.

CQG Is a very good solution that we use for our web based and mac based applications for routing and data feed.
Assuming I did have access to CQG, I still not replace Rithmic as my main sources for major apps like Ninja.
I am not going to get into a long discussion about the broker risk management side of Rithmic, but all I can say is that it allows to see in a flash what a trader has on his book in case of tech assistance.

PM with any questions about optimusfutures (800) 771-6748 (561) 367 8686. THERE IS A SUBSTANTIAL RISK OF LOSS IN FUTURES TRADING.

I believe the demo accounts are limited to a specific set of instruments, I am not sure what those limitations are at this time.

NinjaTrader worked closely with CQG in developing from the ground up an API that communicates directly to their network. This is different than other applications that integrated to the CQG Integrated Client application. This offering is exclusive to AMP Global Clearing (FCM) and made available to their IB, AMP Futures. I suspect that other IB's will start offering this but you would need to check with AMP Global Clearing.

Also, NinjaTrader/CQG offers the free live trading NinjaTrader Direct Edition.

Does this in any way mean NT7 will be building (adding) the capability to access up to 30 days of BID/ASK historical data from a CQG feed connection (for use in properly tracking Cumulative Delta through all the tools built by Gomi and others)?

If you are going to have a great feed like CQG connected for charting and order routing, it would be sad if there was no ability to access historical BID/ASK data (like the 30 days of historical BID/ASK data which is available from DTN.IQ).

Thanks in advance for any info!

BTW, this would be a MAJOR breakthrough for NT7 if you guys step up to the plate and gets this feed connection done right (CQG connected to NT7 with simplistic proper access to historical BID/ASK data).

I just wanted to make sure I stated the obvious here!

The NinjaTrader/CQG integration project centered on connectivity to the CQG Global network for order routing and real time futures and index data. For reasons I cant disclose it was decided that NinjaTrader would supply the historical data server technology. Our servers are co-located at CQGs Chicagos data center and provides tick, minute and daily bars for last, bid and ask.

For further clarification:

Order Routing NinjaTrader Client CQG Global Network Exchange (and back of course)
Real time futures and index data - Exchange CQG Global Network NinjaTrader Client
Historical futures and index data - Exchange CQG Global Network NinjaTrader Data Server NinjaTrader Client
