Does Rithmic offer Forex trading?

Their website sucks! Hopefully it isnt an indication as to how their service is...

Rithmic is futures only, including currency futures.

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.

Please create a new thread if you want to continue this. But briefly, IQfeed is not a broker. They are a data provider, generally regarded as the best in the retail space. I use them. As for brokers, you can use whoever you wish as MultiCharts supports all the popular ones, including Rithmic, TT, IB, and others.

You can come to our Live Chat so we could look at the slowness issue next time it reproduces. It can sometimes be caused by some programs the intercept packets, such as virus scanners or firewalls.

Is it advised to run MultiCharts without virus scanners running (like Microsoft Security Essentials) to reduce lag, or is your comment meant to mean that these can cause problems, but are normally not a cause of slowness?

Just wondering how I can keep my MultiCharts as quick as possible.

Regards,
Jura

For the record, I am a fan of MSE. I only use MSE and nothing else. I find it to be the most lightweight of apps out there, and the most compatible/non-intrusive. But MSE does not analyze network packets. Some software does, and this interception of all network packets can cause a big delay.

I don't mean to derail this thread any further, but I wanted to point out that I stayed up past my bedtime last night and misread your question. I read forex data, not trading...

Sorry for the confusion, and for deviating from the thread's subject..

Status update?

Hello Bob,

Just read the complete thread and wondered how your automated trading
is going now the problems with MultiCharts are solved.

Is real trading now in the neighborhood of backtesting?

Are you still very satified with Multicharts?

Hi ehlaban,

The problems are solved with MultiCharts. However, it's a fairy-tale world to trade CL live using the strategy. I don't think the retail trader (us) can get in and out quickly enough to consistently make money. I haven't used it in automated mode again, for I don't trust my computer and broadband speed. I have a greatly modified version of the program on TradeStation (so I could backtest it for 6 months) and it shows a net profit for 1 contract of + 264,871, figuring $4 Commission and $10 slippage per R.T. However, in the last week it lost every day (- 27,455 !!). So something's wrong somewhere. It went straight up for 5.5 months, stalled, now it has crashed.

I don't think I'll ever be able to compete in an automated mode with the Big Boys. I'm still working on another version of it though. I need to find a strategy that doesn't require instantaneous execution, where not being the 1st one in doesn't kill me. As it is now, I'm probably the last one in and either miss the profitable trades or get the losing trades.

A little disappointed, but I will never give up. And yes, MultiCharts is the best charting program out there.
