NT8 slow

Hi all,

I usually trade on a desktop at home and I have no lag or speed issues. However I also have NT8 loaded on a surface pro and it seems as though I am getting a lag or delay.

I try to look at the market and it trade occasionally during the NY session which is obviously pretty fast compared to Globex, and I am using a hotspot connection off my iPhone. I am thinking maybe not look as far back with respect to data to minimize the lag or delay. Or is it actually not possible or recommended what so ever to trade on a hotspot connection? Is there away to assess my connection speed ?

Thanks in advance

Tethering through your iPhone (hotspot) introduces for sure a delay

1. what is the quality of your mobile data (3G/4G ?)
install an app on your iphone and test the internet speed

2. do the same on the surface, used a website like speedtest
or install an app to measure internet speed

3. you could compare it with the numbers on your desktop

you don't need 50 MBS to have responsive fast, but the delay is more important.

it is not how much can come through the pipe
but how fast it comes (delay)

your setup is for sure not the most efficient
try to maximize the mobile reception of signal also

Thanks for your reply rleplae. My connection is LTE which I think is equivalent to 4G. I will be using speed test to see how the IPhone and surface pro speed is.

I did test the guest WiFi network at work and got NT8 going and it seems fine. So that may be a better option. I just need to make sure I donít get in trouble using the guest network at work, currently only planning to go in to look a few times a day for about 15 min each time.

Having somewhere a server (desktop) with a cable running your NT8
and going in with a remove access (teamviewer, vnc, ... ) might be a
better option, you will also not have to pull-in the history to startup
NT and just connect and look...

That might just be beyond my IT knowledge and not sure how feasible during work hours

Evening at home is on a desktop with no issues.

In short:
You install a host software on your desktop at home, start NT8 and when going to work you leave it on
You install a client software on your surface, when needed you connect to your home desktop, which
takes few seconds and you have access to an up-to-date chart, as the NT is already running.
There are few tools out there to do that, just be careful to put a good password on your connection

good luck !
