CQG One - Speed up datafeed pulse in DOMTrader/Time & Sales and option to reduce depth of prices
Currently your datafeed is netted down to I guess 2 updates a second in DOMTrader and Time & Sales which is very slow for today's ISV offerings. I am attempting to attach a 1 minute side by side DOM video (MP4) of CQG One and Tradovate (built on CQG) of the Nasdaq to show how much slower and how much less information CQG One gives the trader in fast moving markets.
I understand limiting the incoming data helps stop the platform falling over in peak data bursts like on market open or over CPI/NFP but this seems very slow. Your feed is unnetted in the Quote boards or at least updating 20+ times a second I'm guessing.
Is there a way we can have it sped up, at least doubled, or opt to choose to speed it up or set a max number of updates and have you auto-throttle it intelligently depending on whether it's clogging up. Again your competitors seem to pull off unnetted feeds without freezes even with 20 or so ladders open. Indicators on charts don't need to adjust multiple times a second so they could be dialled back.
Finally on say EPH24 DOMTrader you are showing me 100 offer and 100 bid prices all updating the bid ask sizes. As an order flow trader I only really care about 10-15 each side most of the time. Can you have a setting the trader chooses for this? It seems such a waste of bandwidth updating all these prices so far away and probably at the expense of the overall data feed pulse speed. I get that brokers might like this but can we have some optional settings on number of prices pulling down data on each ladder? If the video doesn't upload I will link it, it's been sent to EJ in support already.
