I'm not sure that a "connectivity problem" to the broker/fcm server is the cause of not getting filled, but maybe I'm wrong or misunderstanding. Interested in learning what you mean by not getting a fill due to connectivity issues. Cuold you define "when I don't get a fill" ? A limit order where price touches and bounces off without a fill?

Also agree that latency (rather than bandwidth) is most important factor for internet connection. Test latency by running a traceroute to the ip address you're connecting to (broker's server), and use an app called TCPView to determine the ip address and port you're connecting to. Use Youtube videos to learn how to do this.

NT8 needs to more efficiently manage incoming tick data. Bookmap and I/RT are the work horses, along with sierra. Since NT8 can connect to Rithmic, I'm not sure why it cannot backfill order book data in its market depth map the same way that Bookmap does. But it probably goes back to the internal architecture of NT8. There's got to be a better way of architect'ing it without losing the ability to end users to write custom scripts.

PS. on gpu, the 1660 SUPER is the sweet spot. But go with 2070 SUPER before getting a 1080Ti, imo.

to help anyone with deciding on build specs, check out https://www.reddit.com/r/buildapcforme/ or https://www.reddit.com/r/buildmeapc/ Just post what you want to accomplish, give a budget for what you want, and they can give you a parts list with links. Read the posting rules before posting, tho.

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 nature of the beast - sometimes your limit order does not get filled. ES, CL and NQ are very different - there's always someone to take your trade.
I run Ninja 7. I don't need all the bells and whistles of NT 8. My codes run just fine in 7. Frankly, I don't use much - I have 2 charts - one long term, one short, Jigsaw and a few applications running on the charts. That's it. I do have 4 monitors, but that's because of my eyes - had 2 surgeries so the additional screen space makes it easier on the eyes.
The order entry platforms for the 2 companies I work for take up some space as well.
Thanks for the Reddit link -

So -- Ninja Trader and other normal programs can run on WindowsServer? I have never used WindowsServer OS. I do hear it is a like a million times more simple and stable.

Well I have not done it yet but according to some youtubers it is possible with some tweaks
