I don't recognize what you're describing. You might want to check it out on your end, and also contact Velocity!

We all struggle to make tomorrow look like yesterday!

This morning at 10.00am CET I got disconnected while I was in a DAX trade on the TradingTechnologies datafeed from Velocity, yesterday that happened also in the morning session around the same time.

I only had to reconnect and all was fine,

???

I did not had that with Zenfire. It seems to be TT is doing that like every day ?

Are you trading live or demo?

Also, are you running 6.5 or 7? If 6.5 the disconnect is within Ninja. The reason is quickfix. Version 7 will not have the issue.

Best regards,

If you have any questions about our services at Velocity Futures please send me a private message.

it normally only shows the top 70 or so... today, those top 70 made $$$... other times they dont and so it shows the losers as well... there are 537 traders that have opted-in showing their P&L on the leader board... not all are winners.. I will post another pic tomorrow to see if it documents the losers, but yes.. it normally shows it.

They only show the winners on the day

I'm on x-trader with TT datafeed from Velocity this week and it has been very very stable without any hickups.

I run it side by side with the full CQG platform. There's like no difference.

So I installed Sierra Charts and I am getting backfill on symbols I have never opened before when connected to Velocity, but I don't get any backfill on NT. Does anyone else get backfill from Velocity on NT? Thanks.


Nevermind, found out it's provided by SC.

Your using TT FIX presumably? There is no backfill with TT, to my knowledge. So perhaps the backfill is coming from Sierra directly? Much like Ninja backfills for Zen Fire?

You might try asking in Sierra thread as well:

Hello all,

Anyone using/have used Velocity Futures? (Futures Brokers, emini trading, Futures Trading)

I am looking to compare them to Mirus specifically, but would appreciate any feedback you may have had with them.

Thanks,
Gary

The guys anwering the phone were nice. But the TT system the way they used it sucked. It had a tendency to forget it was carring an overnight postion. It would not show up on the ninja dom the next day. Tricky and of course it became my finanical mess. There is a reason they are no longer on ninja's reg. list.

you are always warned with NT7/TT not to carry overnight positions... they clearly tell you, so not sure how you could have missed it.

Something I don't understand is that if you pay yourself for X-trader or you pay for yourself for Ninjatrader the comissions are higher for Ninjatrader than for trading withX-trader.

why is that ? I mean, you pay in both cases for the software, that is no cost to Velocity, why is ninjatrader more expensive ?

I don't get it.
