    Live Future Data for TD Ameritrade

    Dear Support,

    I have my TD Ameritrade on NinjaTrader 8 Live platform. While I can trade ES,NQ, CL, etc. On TDA TOS platform, data for these futures are not available on NT8 live. How do I trade futures contacts in my TDA account on NT8 Live platform?

    Thanks.

    Hello aligator,

    Thank you for your post.

    The interface between NinjaTrader and TD Ameritrade only supports equities trading (stocks and ETFs). This is why you are not able to receive futures data into NinjaTrader with the data feed from TD Ameritrade.

    NinjaTrader offers an in-house brokerage service for futures trading, which will provide real-time & historical tick data through CQG/Continuum. Alternatively, you can use the NinjaTrader platform to trade futures with Interactive Brokers as a third-party brokerage option.

    Let me know if I may be of further assistance.

      I also use TD Ameritrade. But unfortunately, at this point for 3rd party software providers like NinjaTrader, Futures and Indexes are not supported. I do not know why, probably they want to force people to use ToS?

        Thanks Christopher,

        I used to trade futures on NT platform with Rithmic data in a Dorman account. Do you still support Dorman and Rithmic?

        Thanks.

            Thanks.

            A couple of questions, please:

            1. Do you trade Futures on TOS, if so do you experience data latency and larger slippages?
            2. I trade equities with TDA on their platforms and used to trade futures on NT with Rithmic data and Dorman as broker, and had to pay monthly exchange fees for Futures. Do you know if TDA in now charging for Futures exchange data or these are included in their commissions and fees?

            Thanks.

              Thank you Christopher,

              I can see on Connections that Rithmic is supported but I do not see Dorman on your list anymore. Would you please answer my question in post #4 before I send e-mail to your sales?

              Thanks.

                Hello aligator,

                We will need to look at your license key to determine which brokers you are able to use with the NinjaTrader platform. Please send an email to [email protected] and include your license key in order for us to assist you.

                  aligator,

                  1. Do you trade Futures on TOS, if so do you experience data latency and larger slippages?
                  No, I do not trade futures using TOS. For that I have NT account with NT brokerage and datafeed (Continuum). But I know a guy who trades futures using TOS: no problem with datafeed or latency, slippage happens like everywhere else.

                  2. I trade equities with TDA on their platforms and used to trade futures on NT with Rithmic data and Dorman as broker, and had to pay monthly exchange fees for Futures. Do you know if TDA in now charging for Futures exchange data or these are included in their commissions and fees?
                  According to TDA's website: $2.25/contract + exchange fees + regulator fee. No fees for datafeed. So it will be around $5 for a round trip. It is cheaper to use NT for that. Even if you have to pay for a datafeed as all these $ differences add up quickly.
