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.

yes, alex, and NT tech support has nothing really to say about it other than to do what is on their performace page... they also insist that it is "just a handful" of users who experience the problem... which I don't believe. HOWEVER... there is hope that NT7 has much better performance and I doubt very much that NT will pay much attention to 6.5 while they are doing the NT7 beta testing and roll out. I'm not live yet, but when I go live, I will have NT on two computers... one with no charts and only the data for the instrument I'm trading and the other with charts that I can close down with no consequences.

Here's what fixed it for me: I put all my charts to have 2 days history when I'm trading live. So I have a workspace for trading live. When I'm reviewing or testing out ideas, I open a new chart and I put the history to the minimum I need (like last 20 days) or if it's in the past I put a week at a time with 1 day before so everything is in context. This seems to have fixed my performance problems.

slow crashing NT

I concur with short time charts to improve load up time and keep it all running.
NT workspaces corrupt weekly for me so I am fairly experienced at resetting them up.
I sincerely hope NT7 is better at handling a few charts - I have 12 with max 10 days bars.

It is a bit of a ram issue and an issue with IB so I am unsure quite where the blame lies - but when you trade live it is best to have a backup on your laptop or an other computer.
