Hi,
Anyone on NT7 ver 4 see a big change in RAM use? I monitor RAM usage on a regular basis to ensure my trading platform has sufficient RAM. What I have noticed since upgrading to ver 4, RAM usage for NT has gone up overall. Before, I had total RAM usage at 40-45% (around 600k) now its around 750-800k. FYI, I exactly same template with same components as always. The most visible 'effect' I noticed since upgrade is the mouse cursor stalls momentarily & consistently.

I have Win 7, with what I believe sufficient RAM (6Gb). Would like to hear your experiences and views, and ofc ways to ensure the platform does not fold.

This is interesting... I had the very same exact phenomenom with NT 6.5 while back and it dissappreared when I upgraded to NT 7 so I was happy. Now, I have not yet upgraded to ver 4, and it looks I'll wait until this issue gets corrected before doing that. It's really a nuisance when the cursor stall as you intend to enter a trade or manage one.

As I have told everyone (ad nauseam) , I trade on 5 tick range bars. Twice since upgrading to NT 7.4 I have seen a HUGE range bar (up to 20 ticks) suddenly materialize in the middle of live streaming and then the subsequent bars go back to 5 ticks.

I'm used to getting sudden movements that result in a bunch of 5 tick bars getting generated all at once, but this is a new development.

Before NT posts;

1. You are the ONLY user out of 100,000 that has this problem.

2. Techs have assured me we don't do that.

3. Please duplicate the problem , figure out a fix and email it to us.

I will try to figure out what the heck is going on.

So far, when this happens I just shut everything down and bring it back up and the "Long Bars " go away.

Of course the first time this happens in the middle of a trade ... I probably won't be so cavalier.

Examples posted below.

I'm just a simple man trading a simple plan.

This obviously isn't a solution but may save some time if it works. Have you tried reloading all historical data instead of shutting things down and restarting?

Unfortunately that will only work until June, unless you aren't trading CME products.

Thanks for the reply.

Yes I did. Didn't change anything.

In the past I would get a surge in ticks that would result in a bunch of 5 tick bars zooming across the screen, like during the Petroleum Inventory Status Report or a big news event. This "feels" like this is what is happening except now I get a long bar instead of a bunch of little ones.

On the second attachment you see a long bar and then a group of 5 tick bars "fill it" back in.

I haven't had it happen in the middle of a trade yet, but as long as the stop worked (... what could possibly go wrong... ), it wouldn't be much different than the burst of 5 ticks bars.

Is CL a CME product now?

I'm going long on TMFT to find appropriate cartoons. My long will be a buy and hold strategy.
