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.

Matt,

Could not login this morning with NT7, message "Login failed: unable to login: A call to SSPI failed, see inner exception." Called your number many times, but no answer. Please help.

You could try contacting NinjaTrader support, we have techs available right now.

piposaurus, I have the exact same problems that you do with Rithmic Data and Multicharts. Very frustrating and actually very novice on the part of each of them. I'm beginning to get fed up with the lack of professionalism with each of the two.

I suspect the problem is that Rithmic just expired some certificates. For NinjaTrader, the resolution is to update to the latest version. Here is the advisory we issued a few weeks back on this:

I had the same problem this morning, but I upgraded to newest ninja version and that solved it for me.

Guys, I am calling the different parties to see if they have upgraded to the latest SSL certificates by Rithmic.
Rithmic did contact the different parties and let them know that this will occur.

NinjaTrader has upgraded first, now I have to see if other parties have done the same as well.

I am sorry for the frustration and will keep you posted.

Just FYI to all interested I had the latest version of NT and when the advisory first came out had no problems but a few days latter NT started having problems. So I did a reinstall and everything working fine now. If on Rithmic I would suggest a reinstall even if you are not currently having problems.

That being said I find rithmic / NT combo to be very stable and reliable aside from an occasional issue. I have found it to have less problems than previous feeds I've used. I do wish they had an alert system to inform traders when there is an issue with feed.

"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."
