I had a number of Ninjatrader brokerage / CQG connection dropping issues the last week or so, not sure if I had problems the exact same day/time you mentioned though. If this continues I'm going to have to change to a broker with a more reliable data feed because it cost my automated strategies about $2k is missed profit opportunities.

P.S. I don't use a VPS so it wasn't that...

@iantg problem was on April 23th and it was something else, the problem was clearly identified on our side (a flapping network port) and solved. I didn't notice any Continuum disconnection since.
If you can you should do a tracert to the Continuum destination server to see if it can be a router between you and the destination. But this kind of failure are tricky to analyze as they usually don't last long.
When I saw this in the past it was looking like a Continuum server (or its network) congested, not a pure network problem, but as I don't have access to the remote server logs I really don't know.
