CQG + Sierra and Cumulative Delta

Hi. I'm with AMP and use sierra chart with CQG data. I mainly trade tick charts with Cumulative Delta, which is big part of my strategy. I would like to find out if CQG data is good quality data for tick charts and cumulative delta.

I have read many posts about CQG data feed quality. But a lot of them are 4 to 5 years old and I don't know if the information is still relevant today, as data feeds and especially sierra chart changes all the time.

I saw a post on here where someone compared IQFeed to TT and said that you can use cum delta-up/down tick instead of cum delta-volume to compensate for poor data feed. So I have been using both at the same time, and most times they look very similar if not the same. But at times they are way different.

Can someone with experience with good quality data like IQFeed, Sierra chart data or other comment on that? Maybe CQG is good quality idk.

I included some picks from today and yesterday's close where I found most significant differences, as well as my chart and cum delta settings.

Thank you.

I've been using SC data for the past several months and have been very happy with the speed and quality. It's also relatively cheap compared to the last time I checked IQ. Full CME with market depth is roughly $40/month.

Can't speak to IQ, never used it.

I trade volume profile, so I don't know if my assessment of SC data is deep enough for what you're asking, but they do have free trials for all of their feeds. Time it right at the beginning of the month and you can get close to a month free to test it. You just pay the connection cost of $25 or so.

I think volume profile should be OK with CQG as it's pretty good data and I use it too in my trading. I use it for levels. But I'm wondering is it good enough for cum-delta because I use it to time my entries with some setups.

Anyone that compared cum-delta or other bid/ask dependent tools with CQG and other high quality data feeds.

Thank you stphnlwlsh.
