    Question about data feeds please?

    I have IQFeed and continuum. Are both necessary. I trade live on continuum and use IQ for historical data for everything else. Would simply using continuum suffice?

    Thanks

    Hello nepenthean,

    This depends on what data you need and for what purpose.

    CQG/Continuum supports Futures and generally will have the historical tick, minute, and daily data needed.

    IQFeed supports Futures, Equities, Forex, and Indexes and has limited tick data, but unlimited minute and day data.

    Below is a public link to the NinjaTrader 8 help guide on Data by provider which shows the supported connection technologies and the types of data these connections support.

      Thanks chelsea.

      Is there a link describing how far back historical minute/tick data go for futures? Iqfeed has 10 yrs for minute and 6 months for tick.

        Hello nepenthean ,

        From my understanding IQFeed has 180 days of historical tick data available.

        However, I would recommend contacting IQFeed to confirm. Below is a public link to their 3rd party site.
