I am not willing to switch brokers just for a platform

I hear you. Since I switched to Rithmic via Optimus, I am very close to dropping IQ, as I really dont need it for much, but it is hard to drop since it is such a good feed for historical data.

As a SC customer, don't you get free historical data thru SC as an option? Does anyone know the source of the data?

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.

Yes, there is something included, but not sure where the SC hist data comes from, as I use the feed hist data.

I need the properly marked data for bid/ask cum delta. I have used IQ for that, but the Rithmic feed thru Optimus has data correctly marked, which I have been using all of this month. The main issue for me in the short term is to make sure that feed continues to work, and that the historical data for that feed works (it currently only goes back maybe 30 days).

I use OpenEcry so they just store OpenEcry data as history data. I don't think this data is open for non-openecry customer though.

Mike, a solution (a hack) is posted in that SC thread using price chart overlay. Essentially, the DOM depth has to come from the trading service, in your case TT. The chart data can come from a different feed such as IQ.

I am not sure, but I know the IB fill is based on 30 second data while the TT backfill is true tick data, so it may be broker dependent. TT fill only goes back 60 days though. Both are sufficient for my purposes, but if you are doing systems backtesting then you will probably need a separate data source to suite your needs. But yeah, this and the performance reporting they need to fix ASAP.

I meant the SC-provided backfill, wondering what the source is for this.

But if I understand correctly, you still can't use chart trader with this. Right? The only way to use chart trader would be to not use IQfeed.

My thought was that it was provided by SC, because when I load a range chart in NT I get no historical backfill for either, but with SC I get historical backfill for both. Unless they have it programmed to pull 30 second data from IB when you pull up a range chart or something.

Mike,

What do you need from IQ? Does IQ data need to be on same chart?
