trace route command shows how many hops, pings and dinks inbetween the client pc and the host receiving server,

those collectively when added together are latency

slow in this context means bandwidth issues, clogged pipes, bursts of data exceeding the mean average capacity of the outbound pipes from the data server to the entire populace of subscribers

slow also has much to do with one's ISP SLA and in-bound speeds.

slow also has much to do with one's CPU, motherboard and chipset, operating system HDD / SSD and other active processes running on the platform at the time "it (slowness)" is observed

futures.io (formerly BMT) has a thread regarding speeding up one's platform, whether using Ninja, or any other trading application. In essence the suggestion is to initially increase to maximum one's DRAM slots; implement some sort of VRAM / Ramdisk; allocate priority to your trading architecture through your QOS Router features and de-prioritize everything else.

Eddie and his crew at EZTradingComputers.com are some awesome guys that have really run the gambit on this issue and can take this conversation further, provided one's glasses stop fogging over from the details...

good trading to us all!

@kronie agree with you. But this latency issue has to do with hops right before the CQG server. You can see where it happens most of the time on the tracert. I have actually seen it hit 800ms which is kind of ridiculous. Whose fault it is who knows? But even the guys running the data center at Steadfast in Chicago are saying they have seen many problems with routes the last few months. So there is something going on with the backbone so to speak.

"The day I became a winning trader was the day it became boring. Daily losses no longer bother me and daily wins no longer excited me. Took years of pain and busting a few accounts before finally got my mind right. I survived the darkness within and now just chillax and let my black box do the work."

wow!

since it has been isolated to the "in-between" zone, one has to look at the servers used to handle routing on the backbone. Cicso's architecture is preferred to others, but there are other machines used. They are in doubt and are failing. On the backbone and on the back plane (the integrated circuit board) that the HDD's are attached to the physical server / router box, are using simplistic chips and chipsets that are failing over. At this point, they're executing their "distress" steps, and hence the massive throttling or 800ms ping counts.

simply put, those boxes need replacement, as they are just before the point of melting down from excessive wear and tear. imagine that, with no moving parts, they're melting down from wear and tear.

CQG disconnects


I upgraded to ninja v22 and have the CQG feed. Ever since upgrading I've noticed more disconnects but also now when I have a disconnect ninjatrader crashes completely and I need to restart. I never had this problem before. I'm wondering, is anyone else experiencing this? thanks

Thank you for your post.

I think I might wait a little bit more before updating.

Any more reviews about the update?

I have not seen any differences regarding the disconnection issue, but the upgrade to 22 broke some custom indicators, had to manually re add references to dll files in NT. I am using v22 since the weekend. tested from different locations so connectivity issue on my side ruled out.

Just to let you know.

I updated to the latest version and all works fine.

There are no connection issues so far, it seems to be very stable.

Thank you!

I also had problems with disconnects couple of weeks ago. After CQG switched/changed my profile from connecting to US-Servers to London-Servers i had no problems anymore.

Just want to share and save you from something ...

My experience with Mirus/CQG/Dorman was until Friday last week just fine, until i convert EUR>Dollar.
After i recieved my Daily Statement i was very angry.

Dorman took $49.95 for conversion! RCG no fee!

Now i am searching for a new broker and clearing.
