No pure .NET API support but Windows C++ (is this good for Visual Studio or some lame Cygwin configuration). The COM Windows options would be a joke due to being too slow.

htThe pricing is quite affordable as compared to IQFeed with no $300 API developer annual fee.

Could be better than IQFeed but if anyone could le me know that would be appreciated.

Does not look popular with this kid of ranking:

http://www.alexa.com/siteinfo/http%3A%2F%2Fwww.activetick.com at

Global Rank

Global rank icon1,538,055

Does that mean no uses it anymore?  Compare to IQFeed at http://www.alexa.com/siteinfo/iqfeed.net which seems to also be slipping. but is about 401K ranking.

I tried the trial recently and compared with my verified data I use for testing; very very bad data in my opinion. I should have known better from the spelling errors on their web page.

Q&A on our HIGHLY AFFORDABLE LOW RISK Premium Membership FLASH SALE so why you should learn from Quant Labs

Q&A on our HIGHLY AFFORDABLE LOW RISK  Premium Membership FLASH SALE so why you should learn from Quant Labs 

A query came in about our flash sale stuff
I respond here:

– How profitable are the strategies you do have?

Any offer that promises you to be profitable should be avoided. We don't make such promises but will say it is your
 inner will and drive that gets you places in life including profit. We have various ways to help but don't make promises
 like that.

– Do you teach the same strategies that are already available; just in a different language/platform?

There are variety of technical courses to help you build you own trading platform and strategies with source code. Just 
get more details here:

Quant opinion: Open Tick alternative is ActiveTick which is very affordable

Quant opinion: Open Tick alternative is ActiveTick which is very affordable

Someone commented below as an alternative to free OpenTick:

A good alternative for me was ActiveTick (they’re not affiliated with opentick,

I’ve double checked). They have C++ APIs for windows, linux, and mac osx, as

well as C# and Java. I must say their data stream is excellent, and is very low

latency (I measured 10ms for me, and I’m on the west coast).

http://www.activetick.com/activetick/contents/ActiveTickFeedOverview.aspx

It appears this is only twenty dollars a month. What? Here is the real pricing:

Maximum number of concurrently streaming symbols 500 2000 Unlimited

Monthly subscription fee $49.95/mo $89.95/mo $179.95/mo

Also included is:

Unlimited tick series queries Included Included Included

Unlimited bar series queries Included Included Included

Unlimited static quote queries Included Included Included

Unlimited static fundamental queries Included Included Included

Exchange licensing fees Included Included Included

U.S. equities and Forex exchanges Included Included Included

Unlimited usage of ActiveTick platform

As Borat once said, ‘Very nice!’ This could give all the other tick providers a run for their money.

Rithmic data is affordable for futures traders with no latency on the CME. What about brokerage costs and minimum funding?

Rithmic data is affordable for futures traders with no latency on the CME. What about brokerage costs and minimum funding requirements?

Here are some more details on Rithmic:  from my member:

To use the Rithmic data, you need to have a funded account with the associated brokers. The cost of
Rithmic R|Trader Pro is $25 per month, but need to consider the commission extra for using the
Rithmic data per trade. I don’t know how long you can use the R|Trader pro without trading, I guess
that would depends on individual broker.

Rithmic is CME specific I think, so no spot forex only futures.

 

I will report back once I find out. I am trying to find out minimum funding requirements.

More Q&A from another site visitor:
Hello Brian,
 
sorry for the delay, many thanks for your response, it helps clarify things, i managed to get some more information, perhaps it can be useful to you if you start working with options:
 
1) black scholes is intended for European options only with dividends 
2) Binomial trees are used to price American options usually
3) analytic engines can be used to price options with dividends
 
After careful consideration i realised you were right about the market side which would be too much work to simulate, is there any free (or cheap) market data i can receive in real time which i can use to simulate buying / selling? 
 
many thanks
That is an easy one. Use IQFeed which is my source. That is most affordable for real time data.
