TS chart freeze after jobs report?

For tradestation users. Did any of you have your charts freeze during Fridays price action after the jobs report. Mine did. I have a friend who uses Ninja and he had no issues?

What broker/data feed?

Mike

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)

This issue could come down to the type of CPU (speed) and the type of datafeed, and how many charts are open, thus how much data is incoming.

An unfiltered datafeed will push through all ticks and data (unlike a IB compressed & smoothed feed). If many instruments/charts are opened, that is much more data incoming that can overwhelm a a medium speed machine, and may be noticeable on a faster machine, as delayed or frozen charts, until all the incoming data is processed. I am guessing the TS provided datafeed is uncompressed and provides all ticks.

I don't know MC or TS, but I am guessing that also based on the number of indicators and their complexity, the data influx ends up consuming additional CPU cycles. I can notice the performance hit on NT7 at such times. Some of my hit is probably due to my having set almost all of my volume indicators on many charts to update me in real-time (calculate on bar close = false), so that I can see the amount of incoming volume on the bar that is currently being built.
