Has anyone ever compared feeds from one broker to another?

    I have recently become aware quite by accident that for a reason I do not understand there appears to be differences in price action between one broker and another. Let me elaborate. I am interested in trading binary options and up to now I have used my current forex broker's charts to monitor price action and take a position. My broker is Alpari UK. The Binary broker is Traderush. Now in analyzing my trades from weeks back, I noticed that when I compare the information on my Alpari chart and the results form the Binary broker that in several cases not only are the price levels not the same, which I can understand, but on my Alpari platform the price is going down whereas the Binary platform says that for the the same period the price was going up. In several cases if I base my results on the Alpari chart my trades were ITM (successfull) yest according to the Traderush platform and feed I was OTM and lost the trade. Can anyone explain this? I can understand that the price levels can be slightly different accounting also for the spread set by the broker but how can the direction of the trade be different for a given currency EURUSD in this case for a given time period ranging from 15 minutes to an hour? Does this happen also among Forex brokers? Hoping someone with lots of experience can answer this.....I am really puzzled.

    Personally, I suspect that almost any forex broker will be closer to reality than most Binary Options brokers.
