Multi Broker software which offers non-professional data fees?

Discussion in 'Data Sets and Feeds' started by rainbow47, Mar 28, 2020.

  1. Hi,

    I have a funded Margin Future account with interactive broker and subscribed to their RT data feeds as a non professional investor. Fees for the future echanges like CBOT and Globex are therefore very low. A few dollar each per months.

    Now, I am not happy with the Trading Workstation software and would also like to have a data feed which provides me tick data for the major future exchanges. IB only provides filtered data and the history only goes back one day if I am not mistaken.

    So I was wondering if there is a multi broker software which allows me to connect my IB account and also get low non-professional exchange fees for realtime prices?

    Thanks for you help

    I feel like if I was trading futures, IB be my last choice, unless your trading stocks and forex as well. Seems like world of futures has a lot of options for introducing brokers and trading tools options.
  3. Thanks Metamega. I am with them fo rmore than 10 years and dont want to move away from IB.

    Any other options?

    Could look at IQFeed. Most modern software allow brokerage/ data fee combinations.
  5. Curious -- why?

    Cost, tools, support.... For instance you could hook up with sponsor here Matt at Optimus Futures, get some more tailored support.Most these brokers will hook you up with software packages for free/small fee. So you got multicharts, Sierra charts, TT, Motivewave, etc. CQG/Rithmic tick data feed vs 250 S snapshot.

    Like I said. I don’t do futures, but theirs plenty of tailored options it looks like.

  7. Thank you guys. As I said, I have no flexibility to leave IB.

    Therefore I am still looking for a solution which provides me a proper trading software to replace TWS and and connects me to a data feed at a resonable price with non-professional fess. I trade futures only. Mostly ES and ZN minis.

    Any other recommendations?

    I use as my front end with IB, trade YM & stocks.

    I'm using Quotestream Connect for equities only, appx $290/year, no issues, I use IB's feed for futures. Not sure what Quotestream would be charging for futures. Link on the site for getting to Quotestream.

    Hope this helps.
