...so what did you mean by "but not on a daily basis" you posted above in a previous message ?

Reading your post could mean simply that the account will be blocked from trading when the customer loses $3500 and reaches the $1500 threshold, flattening out the positions.

This is only a special case vs an intraday stop of e.g. $300 on a 5K account that concerns the current session only.

Could you please clarify?

That is correct, we cant set it on daily basis.
We can set to flatten it once is reaches X and then reset it again upon request.

@paulg, I suggest that instead of coming to this thread and asking questions to things I posted a while back, just call me and I would be more than happy to conduct a conversation ( as lengthy as necessary) to explain how we operate.

Matt

Matt,

Thanks for your willingness to help and clarify.

>>That is correct, we cant set it on daily basis. >>

This is clear and not what I'm looking for.

Optimus

Opened up an account with Optimus. I wanted to use Sierra Charts and had some concerns over data accuracy with the footprint chart using Rithmic.

Matt was quick to get me a trial with Rithmic and Sierra and Sierra did a head to head comparison of Rithmic and DTN IQ Feed. The results are below.

I found Rithmic to be reliable and accurate and it is included as part of the Optimus plan for free. I think you will find the Rithmic combination with your trading platform a good fit.

I also think you will find Matt responsive to your needs..


From Sierra Charts on Optimus Forum:

Rithmic and SC and Numbers Bars

"We have good information to share about this. We have compared Rithmic data and the enhanced historical data available to Optimus Futures customers, to DTN IQ Feed data. We see an exact 100 percent match with Numbers Bars. Please see the attachments.

ESH3-CME Rithmic symbol
@ESH13 IQ Feed symbol

The reason we compared to IQ Feed is because it is a known good reference data feed for comparison since it provides tick by tick data and accurate best bid and ask prices with each trade. "

Charts attached.

Our only solution with NinjaTrader is Rithmic that covers all the N.American Markets.

Made the decision to open an account with Optimus just over a month ago. Having dealt with many brokers in the past, anywhere from "full service" to online discount brokerages, let me say the team at Optimus is first class. The transition has been seamless. While getting used to a new platform and dom (Sierra) has taken a little time, Matt Z and his team have been more than helpful every time I've called in to them. From my experience, there couldn't be a better setup.

I believe Matt will have a NinjaTrader for Eurex solution shortly.

Anyone else with Optimus having trouble connecting via rithmic this weekend? I need to do some backtests but have been only able to connect once for a few minutes today. Issue started after market close yesterday.

"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."

Rithmic always goes down on the weekends.

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.
6)
Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.
