That could explain the recent issue perhaps, but then again a week or so ago Rithmic went down totally, was out for an hour or so. I had a similar issue then with incorrect showing of position after the feed died and could not flatten or close and when it came back on live I was underwater roughly $400

This time I was being shown as long 4 NQ's and underwater when they were originally shorts that were covered mid day yesterday.


Yes, there was an outage last week. It was fixed in a timely fashion, and trading should have resumed normally.
We rely on Rithmic primarily right now, but have access to other feeds, and in my opinion it rather very stable, and at the same time shows good quality data. I am not taking this opportunity to promote one over another, rather say that it's never perfect. Having a set of procedure initiated when snags occur will only help.

It is rather unpleasant when the feed drops, I am aware of it. But, being aware of the positions you are in helps.
If you believe you are flat, verify it, and don't just get out as you might have opened a new position.
