Adding New Data Vendor

Postby wajodi » 21 Jun 2012

Hi I am currently using KINETICK for my real time data and placing orders thru Patsystems. I am doing this to take advantage of the CME fee waiver scheme, saves me almost $300 per month. I would much rather use Multi Charts of course.

Is it a big job to Add KINETICK as another data provider to MultiCharts?

Hi wajodi,

isn't Kinetick just a white label of IQFeed, which is only licensed to NT Trader? Which would mean you get the same quality with IQFeed and they also offer the CME Waiver program.

Regards,

OK I went and Spoke to IQfeed about using my KINETICK account login to use their RT data for MultiCharts............. Their only (repeated) response was, "If you have a KINETICK RT data account you should go and speak to them.

I did go and talk to them, their only response to the same question that I asked IQfeed, " Kinetick is only for NT 7, have a nice day."

IQfeed do support the CME fee waiver program so I'll just have to cancel my KINETICK account and open a new IQfeed account, which will cost slightly more, but is still very cheap RT data with the CME fee waiver taken into account.

Thanks for bringing this to my attention ABC.

In my opinion, that would be nice to have an official feed (unfiltred) for MC (as Kinetick for NT).
No need to reinvent the wheel. Just rename/label a good feed such as CQG or IQFeed and sell it with MC as a package (maybe cheaper?).

Are some users interested ? Maybe I could post a feature request on the PM.

Sounds like a good idea. One condition though. The feed should be comprehensive enough to cover almost all markets and instruments across the world. Forget IB. Although they do cover a wide range, one of the best in fact, their real-time data feed is not true real-time tick data, unlike some of the others.
