    IQFeed and IB at the same time, possible?

    Hi, I would like to connect IQFeed to NT to feed stocks and also IB to feed the e-mini and have two questions:

    1. Will it work?
    2. Will NT collect historical data for the eMini (ES) from IQfeed and real-time from iB?

    Thanks in advance.

    Hello,

    Since both IQFeed and IB provide data for both asset classes, you would not be able to tell NinjaTrader to pull Stocks from IQFeed and E-mini Futures from Interactive Brokers.

    NinjaTrader will pull data from your first connection if available.

    This means if you connected to IQFeed, all of your Stocks and Futures data will come form IQFeed.

    When connecting to data provider and your broker, you have some options. The first option would be best in your case, however I'm offering examples of all your options.

    1. Connect to data provider first then to your broker. This setup will get all live and historical data from your data provider, and still allow you to execute trades to your broker.

    2. Or, connect to your broker first, then to your data provider, with historical data disabled on your broker. This will allow you to get live data from your broker, and all historical data from your data provider, and will also use your data provider as a backup.

    3. Or, connect to your broker first, then to your data provider, with historical data enabled on your broker. This will get live data and any available historical data from your broker, and will allow you to use your data provider for historical data not offered by your broker, and will also use data provider as a backup.
