today was an anomaly, and sadly it wasn't Rithmic that went down or its equipment rather one data center.
When things like things happen they do take notes so this kind of things will not happen.
We appreciate your business and trust.

Traders should be confident to open account with Optimus after this event, Mattz has been taking care of us since early this morning. There are other brokers offer Rithmic too, but looks like only Mattz really cares. Thanks Mattz.

"Our system runs across multiple data centers. Each data center is connected to a central data center in Chicago. the link between our data center in aurora and he central data center in Chicago went down. At no time were we disconnected from the exchanges. This happened around 8:20am and the telco that provide us the link between aurora and Chicago was on the problem right away.
While the telco was working to fix the problem we began to put in place programs to route the traffic over the internet between the 2 affected data centers. We thought this would take us about 10 – 30 minutes but to our surprise and disappointment it took us a couple of hours. Around the time we established connectivity between the 2 data centers over the internet, the telco identified the problem and fixed it (twice) – they had a defective network card in one of their routers in aurora.
If such a link between data centers fails in the future, we are now in a much better position to route traffic between them over the internet. Sorry for the delay."

Anyone else having problems with Rithmic historical data this morning? I have attached the garble I am seeing all over my charts. This was not there on Friday. I am running 15 range charts on CL.
If you are having the problem just start to scroll back you can't miss it as it is all over the place not just on one particular day. I did a backtest that should have executed about 5 trades but it executed 120 because of all the bad data
"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."
