Ninjatrader and Zenfire or TT feed?

    I was talking to AMP and apparently they have the Zenfire feed with Ninjatrader for $5.32 round trip on the 6E.......or....I can get Ninjatrader with the TT feed for $4.72 round trip on the 6E.

    Is it really worth 60 cents round trip to go with the Zenfire feed? Although the margins are better with AMP/Zenfire as opposed to farming out with Velocity for the TT feed. I think the 6E margin of $3000 is in effect until 8am with Velocity...as opposed to be able to trade with $500 margin 24/7 with AMP and the Zenfire feed.

    The best trading in the 6E is really from 5 am to 8 am EST....so I would have to have more money in the account with Velocity/Ninja/TT to trade 2 contracts before 8am.

    What are your thoughts and recommendations?

    Thanks,

  2. I had several connectivity issues with zenfire this year, switched to tt a few months ago and haven't had any issues.

    Fwiw

    I appreciate your input. Everyone is touting Zenfire over TT. Glad to see you on the side of TT.

    I recently read something about TT not having historical backfill. AMP never mentioned that ....is that an old issue?

    Thanks,

    Unfortunately I have to stay with NT 6.5 since my trade setups are written for 6.5. I don't think they are supported and will work in NT 7.
