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.

Rithmic always goes down on the weekends.

Mike

@Big Mike it will go off and on for a few minutes on weekends but it has been down almost 20 hours from me. That is rare and the last time it happened I was into the open on Monday morning and still not up. I am trying to get ahead of the curve and not miss the Monday open. I have been very happy rithmic as the problems are rare but market is giving me a lot of good trades right now. I wish they would throw message out on twitter or something when down for more than a few minutes.

"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 can ask @mattz, he would know.

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)

Anyone else with Optimus having trouble connecting via rithmic this weekend? I need to do some backtests but have been only able to connect once for a few minutes today. Issue started after market close yesterday.

After market close is when Rithmic must have stated its regular weekend maintenance.
I suggest to try tomorrow after lunch time as I am pretty confident it will resume.
Optimus will check connectivity on Sunday market open and report about the Rithmic connectivity.


If one must do back testing on NinjaTrader on the weekends when Rithmic is down,
maybe having a backup data like Kinetic could help.
I don't want to get into a discussion about Kinetick, this is just a suggestion.

Thank you.

Matt

I believe Matt will have a NinjaTrader for Eurex solution shortly.

Three weeks later... is there an actual solution?

Yes, there is one. BUT, we are in the testing mode now with the NinjaTrader team and Optimus team.
We will release it when we feel that customer could trade on it without any glitches, delays, etc
Your patience is appreciated.
