In the thread Continuum by CQG, NT worked hard trying to make Continuum work, "The changes with R22 decreased sensitivity in reporting a connection loss when connecting to Continuum." It tells me Continuum data feed has its own issue, NT made it work, but it is OK but not great data feed.

That's an inaccurate interpretation. It really is as simple as stated, NinjaTrader was sensitive in reporting connection loss which was not an issue for most but showed up on those who had poorer quality internet connections. We reduced the sensitivity and it has worked well. This has nothing to do with CQG but rather an individual's internet connection.

I do the same with rithmic.
I have Rtrader pro connected at same time and Multicharts connected on another computer in case the computer goes offline.

I keep Rtrader Pro on at all times. It has excellent spread capabilities and does not use hardly any resources. Pretty good for a free platform.

At AMP futures, I believe you can get second set of credentials for CQG to connect from second platform if needed. The second set costs around $10 I think. I am not sure if this can be done at other brokerages.


I tryed it but i could not get a connection with my Ninjatrader account logindata.
Do you guys hav any idea how i can get the login data for my Rhitmicdatafeed and RTrader?

You are far better off contacting @sam028 for a Chicago server, will be <1ms ping

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.

Be careful whith Ec2

Hi, how @Bigmike has recomended, it's Speedyservers the best solution now for Ninja and low latency.

BTW... I have found EC2 to be extremely slow in both CPU power and I/O speeds

Good Trading

Take a look here for cloud solutions at Chicago :

i like a rithmic feed and rithmic trader platform, very extensive order management plus server side brackets orders, so far so good,,,

* If investing gets too difficult for a seventh grader to understand, the system is needlessly complex
* Markets produce an enormous volume of information, much of which is redundant
* In every game and con there's always an opponent, and there's always a victim. The trick is to know when you're the latter, so you can become the former

@NinjaTrader: What are my data feed and clearing options to trade the FDAX at eurex? I would prefer Rithmic.

NinjaTrader Brokerage is currently only clearing through Dorman Trading and offers 2 data feed choices for trading Eurex (FDAX, as requested): Continuum and Rithmic.

Continuum/CQG carries a monthly fee for Eurex ($23/month for non-professionals).
Rithmic currently does not charge a monthly fee for Eurex, but does have a $0.30 per RT additional transaction cost ($0.15 per contract)

Risk Disclosure: Futures and forex trading involves significant risk of loss and is not appropriate for everyone.

Amazon EC2 is slow and expensive for hosting for Windows. I tried it before with NinjaTrader and it was not tradable. There are a lot better options like @Sam28.

Math. A gateway drug to reality.

Rtrader and Rtrader pro can be downloaded at rithmic's website.
You use the same rithmic credentials for all platforms.

You request rithmic data feed from your brokerage.

If you connect Ninja through a rithmic feed, then you would login using Rtrader using the same credentials.
