"If you are serious about your trading I would not rely on IB data for serious daytrading. Took me a while to justify the cost of IQ Feed and in the end, it's just a 2 point stop on ES. Better safe than sorry" - Comment from Public Forum
"Just a quick one to say I'm very impressed so far :) The documentation for developers is excellent and I've quickly managed to get an app written to do historical downloads. The system is very robust and pretty quick considering the extent of data that's available. The support guys have been very helpful too, in combination with the forums it's been plain sailing so far!" - Comment from Adam

"I was on the phone with a friend who uses CQG and right after the Fed announcement, CQG was as much as 30 seconds behind DTN.IQ. Some quotes were off by as much as 15-18 cents. Your feed never missed a beat." - Comment from Roger

"Thanks for the great product and support. During this week of high volume trading, my QuoteTracker + IQ Feed setup never missed a beat. Also, thanks for your swiftness in responding to data issues. I was on ******* for a few years before I made the switch over early this year, and wish I had done it a long time ago." - Comment from Ken

Hi,

I am trying to replicate an indicator I built using NinjaTrader but changing it to using the API on Forex pairs.

Can you advise which symbol to use in the API? e.g. for EURUSD, GBPUSD etc

I can get it working to using EURUSD.FXCM but I want to use the same provider which NT uses when it connects using the same IQFeed connection

Regards
Azhar

EURUSD.FXCM is probably the symbol you want.

I say "probably" because FXCM is the data provider that the "Forex - Basic" data subscription includes. If you have the "Forex - Premium" data package, this will include the Tenfore providers. which have their own contributor codes like .ABBA, .BNPF, etc. See http://www.iqfeed.net/symbolguide/index.cfm?symbolguide=guide&guide=forex&symbolguide=guide&type=TENFORE for a list of how these codes work.

If you built the indicator yourself in NinjaTrader, you should get the same results outside of it as long as you use the same symbol (include the same .FXCM contributor code) and the same other factors. Beyond that, I'd need to look at the indicator more closely to try and suss out the difference.

Sincerely,
Gary Stephen

Thanks Gary.

I have found the issue, I am using quotes streaming and building my 1sec, 1min and 5min bars and difference was around that. Once fixed, it matches now.
