Data Feed Query

Hi.
I'm wondering if you can give me some advice.

I am currently using CQG (AMP Futures) for the live data feed to power my Sierra Chart software. But I'm not sure that it is a very good quality data feed. I use volume mostly in my trading system so a good quality data feed is important.

I've been looking at other options and am wondering whether I would get better data if I spent a bit extra on the Sierra Chart Real Time Data Feed. I have been looking online for information about this and it would appear that this is a good data feed and that CQG are not highly regarded. I can't afford to use IQFeed and from what I have read the Sierra Chart data feed is comparable. I don't use the CQG trading platform as I live in the UK and use a separate spread betting platform, so I am only looking for a data feed to power my charts.

My question is, as I only use the data to power my charts am I as well off sticking with CQG or is it worth paying the extra cost (which I must add is very reasonable) to use the Sierra Chart Real Time Data Feed as it would provide me with more accurate data? I am aware of the exchange fees etc and have read everything I can find about this on your website.

Your opinion would be appreciated.

Regards
David

We apologize for the delay.

Yes you should definitely try the Denali Exchange Data Feed and that is much better than IQ Feed in many ways. Instructions are on this page:
https://www.sierrachart.com/index.php?page=doc/DenaliExchangeDataFeed.php#SetupInstructions

You can try it for no cost for the month of August.

And if you are using the Denali Data Feed you should also then change over to the Sierra Chart order routing service:
https://www.sierrachart.com/index.php?page=doc/SierraChartOrderRoutingServiceWithData.php

In that case the price of the Denali feed is lowered to 20 USD per month. And you have much better order routing.

Hi.
Thanks for getting back to me.

Can you give me some further clarification on this please.

I would like to take full advantage of the discounts available and would like some help to set up the necessary datafeeds.

I have already set up the SC Real Time Data Feed to trade the EUREX exchange but I'd like to set up the Denali Data Feed along with the SC order routing service as well to make the most of the available discounts.

Your help would be appreciated.

Regards
David
