Use your brain - when a company sharing datafeed in worth of several hundret dollars (also ICE) for under 100 bucks, something went fundamental wrong!

So the evidence is the product itself and the exchange fees - EVERYBODY have to pay!

I can only quote what others say... and use my brain

where do you see that it costs less than $ 100 a month?
It costs $ 150 a month to be informed better before speaking

first connect the brain and then open the mouth

Yes, getting rude is not the right way to clear that up here

On volfix.net you can get the platform with all datafeeds for 1 year for 800 USD

So 800 : 12 = 66 USD

For the platform and ALL future exchanges and ALL Stock market exchanges and a Forex Feed

Alone the exchange fees would be several hundert dollars...

Maybe tiaulu can provide us more information how someone or some company can get around exchange fees?

As i know - thats not possible

You said there are ongoing investigations by the datafeed provider against Volfix. I asked you for the source (where you read about the opening of investigations against the platform) . You didn't know how to give me any further information about it. To speak for personal opinions without proof is to discredit. It is your opinion and this remains.
PS: I do not use Volfix, Sierra Charts or Atas and Ninjatrader since they became introducing broker. But other platforms for volumetric analysis

I heard or read somewhere in the internet (time ago) that not datafeed provider starts investigation but exchanges start to look a little bit closer to them... cause they think that volfix is refeeding the datafeeds to the customers - if its true, i don’t know... but seems logical when you look at the price range from volfix - it cant fit with exchange fees in anyway...

Maybe the future will show us if there is any illegal stuff with them.

The only proof out there is that they are cheaper than exchanges itself - what is impossible at a „normal“ company structure...

The VolFix price $150 per month not included market data for live trading.
For live trading via Volfix on CQG account I must buy market data via my broker (15$ per for all CME)

This is not correct cqg or rithmic only use for trade routing - all datafeeds included - also in demo vesion

Just try it - i have a license and all data is in, with no additional costs or exchange fees

Crazy but true

Yes, I think you're partially right.
I buy on my broker only CME market data.
But I can watching on volfix data also for other exchanges (like ICE).
But this data marked as "MT5 CFD" and have small DOM.
I do not fully understand what this means.
When I choose Ice or Eurex symbols on volfix order window on live account, I watch only end of day data and can't trading.

Strange, no volfix offer till today data for all exchanges on the website - and cfd data have no market depht (alone this seems not legal cause volfix is no data distributor and have no license - you can check this on cme/ice vendors list)

Something really strange about this service...

CFD can have DOM.
For example, you can get free real-time demo MT5 on AMP metatrader5 page.
It will be real CME/ICE market data, with small DOM (10 points).
