Welcome to futures io.

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.


You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

Could you try and be more specific?
What "contradictions" do you see in TradeStation?
We carry TradeStation and MC, so I am trying to help.

Currently I back tested with data TS and I would like to trade real money with Interactive Brokers with the strategy built on TS data feed. I want to know if this practice is dangerous.
We know that the IB data flow is not precise

thanks in advance,
tradingest

I can write a very long post about execution data versus back tested data, but just to stay brief and practical:
1) Either you use Ts for execution.
2) Use MC with Rithmic and port over your easy language code and strategy if you have one.

Bottom line, stay on one machine for execution and testing. Many love complications and impress themselves with multiple solutions, I love simplicity.

Let me know if you have any other question.

So, I can use MC with rithmic it's a great solution for you?
I received data feeds and trade with rithmic? For you is best? Why?
This solution is better vs Tradestation?

Other great solutions?

I am just giving you alternatives. If you are not going to utilize TS, I would use Rithmic+MC becuause of the latency(speed of execution) and the stability of MC. I offer both TS and MC to customers, so I am totally objective.

Sadly not fluent. seems like your English is just fine.
You can PM me and I will give you my email, then I can ask an associate to take a look.

tradingest,

the question probably comes down to:

Did you test in Multicharts using Tradestation data or did you test in Tradestation?

The next question would be what you tested exactly futures, stocks or Forex, as with the latter you might want to stick to the broker that you used the data for testing for, too.

You can use Multicharts symbol mapping and use TS data for charting and trade via one of the execution methods Optimus provides, via IB or any other supported broker. Provided that you properly configured the symbol mapping and are not trying to trade different symbols or instruments (i.e. chart a stock and try to trade a future as MC symbol mapping might not work with such a configuration).

Regards,

ABCTG
