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.

Well, I really subscribe to that.

I'm very satisfied with Sam's service and the reliability of his servers as well...he must be some kind of a vampire since he never sleeps in order to provide his great service.

Hmmm....seems to be just like you, Matt.

On my side I have a bunch of my clients who are also Optimus clients, and I've only heard very positive comments. Anyway, there are a lot od posts from Matt's clients about the quality of the services provided, no need for me to say too much, I may hurt his modesty

That's because you're a smart and quite customer, I'm a monster with the others . Okay, I'm cool with @Happyface too, because he knows where to eat great stuff in NY, but that's all !

In this business, you are as good as your last review. I still have both my feet on the ground.

Indexes and Market Breadth Data

Matt:

What feeds do you support with Ninja Trader? Do any of the feeds have, in addition to futures data, Market internals like the $TICK or $TRIN or Advancing/Declining data? How about the cash indexes like the SP500 or DJIA or Russell 2K? I currently have a demo with AMP/CQG and CQG has that data. Do you have CQG? I know you have Rithmic but does Rithmic support this data? Thanks!

Persistence! Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence.
Talent will not ... nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent.
Genius will not ... Unrewarded genius is almost a proverb.
Education will not ... The world is full of educated derelicts.
Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent!

Hello Jospeh, Rithmic data feed does not support the market internals. Those who require it among our customers (small group) use NinjaTrader's Kinetick that gives very accurate data of these internal and many other features that you may find useful.

Soon, we will be rolling out Continuum which is CQG's flagship product and I think it may have these internal as well.

Thanks,
Matt

Still haven't heard from Vision


I completed the online application for Vision (late evening Jan 20).
The next day I sent a 'hi-res' scan of my Driver's license in a 'secured' PDF... The pdf requires a password to open, so I put instructions in the email, requesting Vision to respond back....(providing some comfort that they got the file...) at which point I would send an email with the password.
....(very basic Internet security sending secured pdf).....

I got an automated reply from Vision on 1/21/2014....but that's all. Since then...nothing.
I sent a second email...still nothing.

Anyone else having problems getting these folks to respond?
