I trade the 30 Yr Treasury - ZB. It's not uncommon for a trade not to be filled, especially if you trade off hours as I do most of the time. I doubt it's a connectivity problem. It's just the...

Get Windows 7 Professional. Do not get Windows 10. Tiger can still sell Windows 7 Prof - I think. You'll have to check with them.

Interesting. Never heard of it. I'm downloading the free version - see what it finds. Hard to tell sometimes whether there's a latency issue or a trade just doesn't fill. No fill happens in bonds...

It's a good point. I check upload/download speed regularly. I don't think Malwarebytes has much of an impact. I keep it on for the "just in case" scenario.

Build your own system. You get exactly what you want for less than half the price. I've built several - the first one I built about 8 years ago is still chugging right along, no problems.

You're right, but that doesn't account for strings of positive trades very close together in time and price - all winners. Logically, there should be some losers randomly distributed. But there...

The fact that I never received an answer either here or in the Jigsaw member area says more about Jigsaw than about this trader. That's all I'm going to say about that. I sent you a PM.

You might take a look at this guy's trades (mark101rrrr) on Jigsaw Leaderboard. It's quite remarkable. So I guess it can be done. I scalp the CL for 1 tick early in the day before the market...
