I'm still wondering why would one consider X Trader. I logged on to the webinar because I've heard some raves about the product, but everything presented in the webinar were very basic features. Is it just me, or perhaps the presentation was meant for new traders unfamiliar with other trading products, or is it that the presenters did not have enough expertise in the standout features of the product to make it shine?

Someone mentioned the speed of X-Trader. How is the speed quantified in reference to competitive products? Speed was not apparent in the webinar either. Other then the static DOM, which is also available on other platforms for a fee, why would an experienced trader want to look at X-Trader? Can some experienced X-Trader users chime in, and give a list of highlighted features that are superior to competitive products?

Surely connectivity and reliability are its historical pluses, not the full-featured setup of commands.
What the presenter did not clarify - and he/she should - is the TTSIM is not a server 'a-la-Zenfire' demo: it's quite slower and incomplete vs a true TT Guardian connection. So, monpere, I agree with you that the speed has not been shown at all. Also running X_Trader over a TTSIM often does not allow to use all of the feature available with the live/production release. For example also some of the volume features in X_Study are badly charted because of TTSIM feed.

I agree with you that the presenters did not make the X_Trader shines as it could ....probably the XT101, X_Study101/201 modules, even if static, could be more helpful in some regards.
Also it's my perception that they thought to present some of the 'Pro' features while instead most of the attenders were at the webinar for the 'Free' version that does not allow to use the Autotrader/Spreader and other features.
So there has been a sort of mismatch between what they tried to present and the audience.

What it would be great is the idea of a 'TT open day' organized at their TT Forum as a live webinar, where people could interact at different levels with prepared personnel for different kind of questions. Unfortunately the TT Forum is quite dead for a trading platform that is one of the 'standard' @ institutional environment.

Thanks for this webinar.

I tried other products, I always come back to x-trader, nothing beats the speed.

There are other static doms but the EPIQ feature is worth the monthly $650 for me

Questions:
1. What do you mean by speed?
2. How do you use the EPIQ to give you an edge?

Oh well, reading my posts you could think I'm not pro TT....but actually I'm a TT addict!
We simply would like to see more feeback and responsive action when some issues have been reported over and over or simple features requested for years and years.

[...] I've never really gone a full week without NT7 freezing or crashing in the middle of the trading day, (with NT6.5 it was more like once a day), but because of all the list of outstanding features mentioned above, I am stuck with it until I find another product that offers me all of those features on a solid base, or until NT stability becomes rock solid.

That's the reason I use X_Trader for managing orders but clearly you have different needs (ATM, C++); therefore you could be interested in TT Dev Net site.
