Understand your comment. I couch my question across both data feed providers as I try to narrow down the cause of these intermittent 'few seconds only' disconnections. I do so as I am aware that ZF is really just a 'white lable' of Rithmic.
I know my internet connection did not go down.
I now know (from several of you who replied) that others do not seem to have had the issue at the same time.
I have been provided Rithmic IP addressess in relation to ZF from NT support folks, so now it is off to my ISP to see if they can test connection from their perspective to see if I can nail the cause.
The following user says Thank You to steve2222 for this post:
Must be your ISP. I use rithmic and have seen no connection problems today.
"The day I became a winning trader was the day it became boring. Daily losses no longer bother me and daily wins no longer excited me. Took years of pain and busting a few accounts before finally got my mind right. I survived the darkness within and now just chillax and let my black box do the work."
You are really posting in the wrong thread. This thread is for outages. The more appropriate thread for comparisons is the one I linked above. It has a lot of detailed information.
Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.
Need help? 1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first. 2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses. 3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make. 4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance. 5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers. 6) Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.

It is not comparison! Time delay is dangerous outage on the fast market. 44 seconds is enough time for lost a lot.
