My experience

I did not use MCDT 7 for a while since I started to use the MC 7 build 4510 pro version.
In the last few days while the markets were quite chaotic I was trading mostly ES via the DOM on my Zenfire account.
Executions seemed to be OK as far as speed and fills goes however I've noticed one thing when I've tried to place an order using DOM a couple of times "my order kind of disappeared".
I've clicked and nothing has happened no order on the DOM and no position. It happened I think twice and the price action was just around where my order was. I did not follow up on the issues since did not have time.
Autotrade with Zenfire seems to have issues, /I don't think there is a way yet to paper trade Zenfire yet with MC/ hang the platform once, took a trade after restart and autotrade was not enabled. Until somehow I will be convinced MC is stable with Zenfire on autotrade I will not autotrade MC with Zenfire again.
IB autotrade seems to be ok even with paper account.

Hope this helps someone.

I hate to see, that it's stupid to use DT free version with zenfire on live.
It never works consistently. Yes, I use the latest DT.

Just now (9:48pm EST Sun 09/05), DT fails to connect my zenfire live account. Ninja7 has no problem at all.

go figure.

When you look at the log, what is the error message? Are you trying to use both MC and NT concurrently? If so, have you got your broker to approve your account for concurrent connections? (it is not the default).

Mike

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.

ZF trading modules in MC full and MCDT are the same. Most users are not experiencing problems, you should probably check out that entitlement that Mike was talking about. If something doesn't appear to work correctly, visit our Live Chat, and our techs can help answer your questions.

thanks Mike and Multichart.

No, I was not using DT and NT simultaneously, for sure.
The weird thing is, after I bounced my PC, DT would work.

I use Win 7 64bit, btw.

Mike

yeah, it's happening now.
NT 7 works fine on zenfire. But DT fails to establish connection to zenfire.

I don't know how to get log from Multichart (the main program). the color of my zenfire conection is Yellow when I choose to 'connect to zenfire' ; when I 'connect to symbol' in QuoteManager, all I got in bottom Event Log is 'Establishing connection to Zenfire...'

I use W7 64bit Ultimate, btw.

thnx,

I don't think you answered whether or not you contacted your broker to explicitly allow two concurrent logins to Zen Fire, because that could be causing your issue. It is free, they just need to flip a switch.

Make sure you are running the latest MC DT version.

When I try DT, I always disconnect my working NT7 first, so there is no concurrency issue.
I use the latest DT version, version 7 build 66

OK, now still the same problem. Log is just:

"Trading System Connection Point: login_agent_rithmicc"

that's it; color of zenfire connection icon is yellow, no response.

thnx,

btw, I am able to use QuoteManger to retrieve symbols from my zenfire login, like Emini DEC 2011. But that's about it, I cannot do anything else: charting, connect to symbol...
