When I was with Ensign they supported Infinity Futures which is Zenfire or TTT data.
I opened an Infinity account for that reason.
The problem is that the Infinity account will only trade using the Infinity AT DOM.
The charts still don't show the live trades and you still don't get a trading system built-into the charts.
Infinity wants you to use their charts and their AT trader. They will open and account and tell you to use Ensign but you are mostly on your own.
Zephyr, and others , do you know how/where I could download the "NT supported" TWS version (v895.3) ?
Or maybe someone still have the install .exe for this version ?
I don't think it will solve my issues, but I can try...
a) please double check you cleared your browser cache before downloading or you will "download" the bogus installer file again from your browser cache
- on other providers than MBT or
- on MBT but not trading currencies
are not affected and don't need to install this custom build.
figuring this out was 2-3 weeks of my life I'll never get back...
I'm having the same problem with TWS. Their charts stall and won't update. Whenever I change a symbol in a chart, it takes a full 2 to 5 minutes to load. Then it stalls there. And when I change symbols in a chart and it FINALLY loads, all of the indicators change colors and my customized chart settings are removed. This is without having NT connected to IB. It's a total joke.
I still have 2.65GB unused RAM running NT, Quotetracker, and TWS at the same time, so it's not a RAM problem. And I have a NEW quad-core and DSL-Extreme at 650bps.
I have maybe 23 charts up at all times. Several of them are mini chart indicators (TICK's, TRIN's, VIX and the main indicies).
I'm wondering if the problem could be with having only 256mb memory on the graphics card. I'm thinking of upgrading to a 1GB graphics card.
I don't have an XP CD, so I can't use a virtual machine. I left XP a long time ago to support other programs I use. I'm looking forward to Windows 7. It might solve the problem.
BTW, I just solved my licensing issue with NT. They gave me a fair deal to compensate for the problem.
Thanks for your suggestions!
The following user says Thank You to Zephyr for this post:
What are you using now? I NEED CHART TRADING. It works best for my trading style. I tried to simply use TWS with IB and their version of Chart Trading, but that turned out to be worse than NT.
I have NO PROBLEMS WHATSOEVER with NT and Zen-Fire. It runs perfectly and it hasn't crashed even once, including during a major data spike that occurred 2 weeks ago which halted several feeds like eSignal. (v6.5). But NT won't work well with some data feeds. I'm back to using Quotetracker with IB because it seems to be the only "ALWAYS stable" software for the (sub-par) IB feed that I've tried.
