Fastest Globex Quotes?

  1. I'm looking for the fastest way to get GLOBEX quotes. Right now I'm using Interactive Brokers' datafeed via the TWS API. What other alternatives are there that beat IB's datafeed in speed, how much does it cost and do you have a link?

    Note: I am far more concerned with speed than with delivery of every tick, especially in fast market times.

  2. Get a globex terminal.
  3. IB's broker feed is what you're looking for under that criteria.
  4. Just curious if you have used a globex terminal and if you have compared it to IB's datafeed for speed? Is there an API or a way to get quotes out of the globex terminal to feed systems?
  5. globex terminal or xtrader api --- the two best
  6. How much faster is IB's broker feed than IB's retail feed?
  7. def

    def Interactive Brokers

    they are one and the same.
  8. If you go with the XTrader API I presume you go through a broker, or can you do this directly through trend technologies just for quotes?
  9. cme e-quotes maybe?
  10. No that lags Interactive Broker's feed by .5 to 1 second, and for all my trying I could not get the data out of the browser.
