Hi Cory....you seem to be all over the CQG data feed so I thought I'd direct this question to you


According to AMP (CQG Trader) we should be able to access a whole list of index instruments in NinjaTrader through CQG. Only problem is I can't get any data for any of them and in the case of TICKDJ I get an error message saying that Ninja data server does not support the instrument. Is there some mysterious setup required before we can access these symbols in NT and CQG? I've looked around on AMP and CQG and NinjaTrader and so far have come up empty.

Regards,
exiledgoblin

ask amp to activate access CQG data. I dont see tickdj either ask amp about that too.

Could you clarify Ray... Do Ninja maintain separate history servers for CQG and for Zen. Will we get the appropriate history depending on who we use live?


A small aside....

Whats the difference between "worked closely with CQG in developing from the ground up an API that communicates directly to their network." (without an API layer) and Kinetic where "We write directly to the market data servers " (with an API) I am not trying to be a smart arse or anything just kind of interested if there is any practical difference? Is the API in the first instance exposed to users?

NickA,
No problem, be happy to clarify your questions.

Yes, we maintain separate history servers. With respect to the difference between CQG and Kinetick.... With Kinetick, Telvent DTN opened up their server protocol to allow us to communicate directly to their server bypassing their generic IQFeed Client API that all other vendors must use. The result is a more efficient interface optimized for NinjaTrader. With CQG, we collaborated with them on an optimal design for an API for NinjaTrader. As a result, they developed a new API specifically for use with our platform.

Thank You. Figured it was something along those lines.

Just want to give you guys a heads up and let you know that even transact/infinity is planning to give live index data such as tick/trin ad line.... etc

they haven't rolled out with it yet, but are planning to offer it soon.

Does this pertain to Amp, CQG or Ninjatrader? It's great news and good to know - maybe this info deserves it's own thread.

I have read the entire thread and what I would like to know is, what exactly is the significance of what ya'll are discussing? Aren't you just talking about a different data feed? Granted many consider it a premier data feed.

It's like getting to make out with the girl who was always just out of reach in high school at the 10 year reunion. You don't get to sleep with her, she isn't going to kiss any different than other girls but that is not the point really.
In a more pragmatic sense it is some nice heat from above to put some downward pressure on the competition to offer more for less.

I switch to CQG as well and tried to get ticks but it would not load. Does it need to be live or will it back fill?

Do you use the default symbols in ninja to setup those index data such as ad line, tick , trin, tickq...
Or do you have to setup it up manually like kinetick and iq feed?

Is there a website with documentation?
