This thread gave me pause.

In the past I had used Rithmic with Vision Financial and didnít have problems. I was mostly a sim trader then, so I probably wasnít hitting the platform hard enough to notice problems, I mostly relied on what others were saying on futures.io (formerly BMT) and elsewhere.

At this point I am about to give Rithmic another whirl, with an account that uses ADMIS as the FCM.

Iím wondering if people felt problems like the one discussed in this thread are more or less likely to happen with ADMIS as the FCM. Iíve seen some very positive things posted on futures.io (formerly BMT) about ADMIS, but I am concerned about reliability.

Also, Iím aware that this thread got somewhat discordant at times. If folks could try to be dispassionate in their replies and keep in mind we are a community trying to help each other as well as make money for ourselves, Iíd appreciate it.



This is only my general opinion as far as feeds: You would likely see more issues as far as platforms and feed integration, rather than FCM and data feed differences. Most FCMs and IBs rely on the data feed server's rather than the FCM's in many cases. Some FCMs may have their own servers, that some data feeds may require.
I know this does not answer your question, but this would help you ask the right questions.


There is a substantial risk of loss of futures trading. Past performance is not indicative of future results.
