ds12 is in my protocol. 89 ms.
In Europe I do not see any forex server from Sierrachart.
FXCM data I use at the moment.
Morningstar data I would like to try.
Cost $21.
Can anyone help further what the requirements are,
or do you need an account ?
Where are the Morningstar servers, or is that then also possible via
the ds12 network ? What are your experiences ! (Ticinotrader ?)

thank you

I use FXCM's data for most of my trading and am completely satisfied with it.

Previously I had real-time Morningstar and its coverage was fantastic, but it does not provide bid/ask data, so I do not subscribe to it anymore. Although I still use their snapshot data for long-term positions on smaller or exotic pairs.

I also have the LMAX data feed that can serve as a backup and also has data for a couple of symbols that are not in the FXCM offering (EURHKD, etc) but I need bid/ask data for.

IB's FX data works very well as well, although it is limited in comparison to FXCM. I use that mostly in the TWS platform.

I can not comment on servers (ping, etc), never touched/cared about those settings, because I always use trading servers that have quite fast overall connection (and worked well for me both for FX and Futures trading.

There is a full-length recorded webinar on Level 2 of my site where I talk about these options and their configs in full detail:

Another Level2 video that could be of help for FX trader SC users:

Hope this helps.

It is very helpful just that MS data does not include bidask.

Thank you for your valuable time and the video links.
