If I have a live trading account with any of NT8 compatible broker,,,let's say Interactive Brokers,,,do you think I can run the stand alone Jigsaw on a different computer(with the same log-in) from a PC that runs NT8?

This way I don't have to pay extra for live datafeed unless the $50 if I opt to trade out of your DOM?

Also I want to trade from your DOM do you have any broker that you favor?

You can run Jigsaw on 2 PCs no problem at all - but you will need a datafeed.

If you use NT8 and daytradr bridge, there's no additional data feeds to pay. That's why the bridge exists. The moment you connect to the same connection from a 2nd PC - you get hit with data fees.

Saying that - I am not sure if you can connect to IB 2 times from different PCs. There are still some vendors that allow it - I can't say who because a certain company will report them to the CME and all their customers will get hit with 2nd connection fees.

As for brokers - I will he shot if I recommend a broker - if you email me - same for the people allowing 2 connections!

Pete,

I'm trying to find where the sound files for "Order filled" etc. are located. I know where the alert sound files are, but I just can't find those for order placements and executions. Thanks in advance for your help.

Mike

Is it possible to access the Jigsaw Bid/Ask snapshot column via code in Ninjatrader?

I don't know whether the jigsaw platform allows API access at all, but if not, how do we compute the numbers in that Bid/Ask Snapshot columns... any code samples would be awesome !

thanks a lot traders and coders....

Hi Pete,
I have copied this guys question here ( @avalo ). It is his third time posting it and they keep getting deleted as each time they are new threads in the incorrect forums (Trading journals, Elite Trading Journal, Reviews of Brokers and Data Feeds).

You can't delete hashtags at the moment - and there's really no reason to delete them. They are quite benign.

Saying that - if we could understand the reason someone would want to delete a tag - we may well agree there is a reason. It's just a matter of perspective.

Still - we do have a 'merge' tags feature planned - so that if you don't use auto/complete or the "click recent tags".

So while we do merge tags, we'll look at the delete too!

I guess my request is unusual. I made a mistake by putting too many hashtags in the drop down menu on the first day I used Journalytics. When I use it now I have to look through a list of non-useful hashtags to find the ones that apply. It's manageable I guess, but if it were possible to repeat my first day I would do it differently. No worries though, it will work out. Journalytix is the best trade journaling program Iíve found. Thanks,
Tom

Hello, this is more a tech question related to daytradr as a software. So I want to know if the software is single threaded or multi threaded, I only use the DOM and I monitor 4 to 5 markets at once. I have noticed during some news releases or some heavy amount of orders coming throu the market freezes a lil bit. Not a problem at all really, but since I am building a new computer from scratch and I need a new CPU I want this rig to be optimized for using NT8 and daytradr.
