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.

Not impressed seems some simple functionality has not been addressed, very possible I missed mention of it as I scanned the document,
Such as "connectivity" meaning account connections as it is now and seemingly not changing it is antiquated.
I must be sure to connect to my providers in a particular sequence to ensure proper data flow and order routing.
Competitors such as MC are way ahead in this area. IMO

I haven't looked at the document, but I would also recommend checking all the NT8 webinars on futures.io (formerly BMT) (I think there are three or four). They provide in-depth details and also a demonstration of many of the changes.

ATM has unlimited targets

Well me biggest request is there... ATM strategies will have unlimited targets :-)) No more working around the 3 target limit.

Futures Edge on FIO

What value do you place on the webinars on FIO?

I believe you missed it. NT8 allows you to specify which connection you want to use for real time data and historical data by instrument type. Connection sequence is no longer relevant.

On "Connectivity Adapters", for Rithmic it only says "Updated API". Are we now able to connect to specific Rithmic servers? Rithmic Singapore servers for example?

I don't know if Window docking feature (like OEC Trader) has been requested. It would greatly enhance Window management.

Advisor account compatibility?

Hello All,
Does anybody know if NT 8 will allow to trade and allocate to multiple accounts together for advisors? It never seems to be a priority for them but had been told by the support team that they would include this feature. Didn't see this in the pdf.
Thanks!

This was covered in the webinar today. My understanding is NT brokerage supports this as of today.

@learning

I think you will find this was addressed.

It says you can now nominate which data provider to use for real time and which one for historic etc ie you do not need to connect in a particular order to achieve this under v8.
