Rithmic SC demo

If anyone is interested, you can demo the Rithmic powered SC. You can do so by going here to request a demo. It is working fine for me, but when you go to download SC, be sure you download the pre-release version which includes the Rithmic support (there is a link on the download page to download pre-release).

I have no experience with SC but in C++ you can define macros to simplify future typing:

Top of your file:

 
Code
 
#define  Close(idx)    sc.BaseDataIn[SC_LAST][sc.Index - idx]
#define  Open(idx)    sc.BaseDataIn[SC_OPEN][sc.Index - idx]

then you can type

 
Code
 
if (Close(idx) > Open(idx)  {
  do something
}

instead of

 
Code
 
if ( sc.BaseDataIn[SC_LAST][sc.Index - 1 ] > sc.BaseDataIn[SC_OPEN][sc.Index - 1 ])
{
do something
}

You can go futher by:

 
Code
 
#define  BarIsUp(idx)  sc.BaseDataIn[SC_LAST][sc.Index - idx] > sc.BaseDataIn[SC_OPEN][sc.Index - idx]
 
if (BarIsUp(1))  {
  do something
}


Better yet you can place all your defines in a header file (say myDefines.h) and include them using #include

There are even better ways to encapsulate thing in C++ once you get some experience with the language

I hope this is of some help

@vegasfoster, thanks for sharing! Backfill comes from Sierra's servers according to their feature listing website.

@ibiscmllc, DTN is supported but not Kinetick, Kinetick is only for NT. You can probably contact DTN to upgrade your Kinetick connection to a regular IQfeed connection pretty easily. It also seems that Rithmic support was just added very recently (days), it is unclear if Zen Fire will work or only Rithmic (you would assume both, but couldn't determine this with Google yet). Also backfill is not yet available on Rithmic, but they are working to add it via Sierra's servers.

Mike

Thanks for the info. I am having problems trying to establish a Rithmic connection with my Zen-Fire credentials. It keeps rejecting the username and password as being invalid. However I noticed that the configuration dialog in SC requires an "account" in addition to username and password. What is that?

Rithmic is not identical to Zen Fire, you cannot use your Zen Fire credentials. You need to be a Rithmic customer, not a Zen Fire customer. I am not sure when or if SierraChart will support Zen Fire (anyone feel free to correct me).

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.

Sierra claims you can use your Zenfire account to access Rithmic (maybe):

Data provider support - Sierra Chart

I haven't tried it myself, so only relaying what I read.

There is no charge for the Rithmic feed if you use them through any platform.
Also, something that I have experimented with this morning, is the ability to use the credentials of Rithmic to set up R-Trader right beside any platform that uses it. R-Trader is Rithmic's front-end platform and it's free.

For example, if someones uses MultiCharts via Rithmic, you don't need to invest in an additional platform to execute through if you see manual trading. Second example, if you don't like the the DOM Sierra Chart, you can use the DOM on R_Trader and trade through that. Either way, you position will show up on R-Trader and you can manage your positions and risk from there.

PM with any questions about optimusfutures (800) 771-6748 (561) 367 8686. THERE IS A SUBSTANTIAL RISK OF LOSS IN FUTURES TRADING.

Interesting, based on my understanding that should not work. Hopefully someone can confirm either way.
