Now I know why X_Trader is "free" with velocity. It's been down for 1 hour. Thankfully I was trading on sim. For traders who had on big size when it froze up that must have really sucked. So I chat with them and they say "we're working on it". That was 30 minutes ago.
Does this happen often with velocity? It's not giving me much confidence. I can only remember zenfire being down once during RTH and that's in 2 years.

Hello Cunparis - I've had an account with Velocity for 2 months now and also had a problem yesterday. However when I contacted them, they were extremely helpful. They ran a trace route from my machine to their servers showing me the issue was the internet and not them at all. After contacting my ISP they too confirmed my connection was failing on it's way to the Velocity servers. I noticed you're in Paris? If I were that far away I think I'd have to colocate to remove the many ''hops'' needed to reach the US servers. I highly recommend Velocity (excellent portal & features) and X_TRADER. Dale more than matched my previous brokers commissions and I'm not even paying for X_TRADER anymore!
