to get back on topic... only thing I hate about Velocity, and every other FCM out there with the exception of TOS(Penson), is the inability to ACH funds at will (in or out) ... only Wire or Checks... that is the most annoying thing I have seen.. IMO.

sysot1t,
do they only show the winners on the leaderboard? It would be interested to see the loosers too.

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.

+1 for Velocity!

I wouldn't have found this forum without them

Their Leader Board does show losers as well as winners. One day I hope to be like MAX! That guy is a machine.

10+ for Velocity!

I've moved back to them. Those scary guys at Mirus don't like to treat people nice. At Velocity, they show you that they care for you. They help you out and they take their time to do so.

I couldn't get my TT to work. The guardian was showing red. So I called Velocity. They tried to help me on their own. We couldn't make it work, so they called TT, and I got support through Velocity by TT directly (like a conference call).

That's what I call service. Not like those Mirus guys, that charged me 50$ for messing up with my wire, making me wait for 23 days in order to get back my money with a lack of 20$ and with nothing solved at all.

So Velocity rocks!

Oh one more thing that's worth mentioning. I called them in order to make sure that they have the right bank information. I couldn't really get my answers from that person I spoke with, so I asked to speak with someone else. And 5 seconds later, a guy that speaks Swedish shows up on the line.

So every Swedish guy around here, have that in mind. I know everybody on this forum (that's from outside North America masters English) but it is still nice to speak to someone in your own language!

So Velocity a big, big 10+!

I'm not losing my connection but the data feed keeps cutting out and my charts stop updating. I wake up in the morning and my charts are wrong. Is anyone else having this problem? Thanks.

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 ?
