Crappy day of Tradestation

I have no idea what’s going on with my Tradestation. I have an nice short setup of NQ around 1050am. My sell order was triggered, and immediately I saw some big loss figure in Matrix screen. It hanged, and suddenly showed me losses. That was not synchronized with what I was looking at chart. Without hesistation, I closed my position. And you know what, I was profitable! What the heck. I ended with +0.5 R gain only.

What a crappy day. I planned my trade, but the software failed me. Forget it, I am going to call it a day.

Here is my setup. Ah well…. a multiple R setup. Argghhh….

  1. Gav,
    I had problems with T.S. too this morning. However, it was because I do not clear my cache often. Go to program files/T.S./cache and TSCACHE and delete those entire files every so often, or when T.S. is acting up. The tech at T.S. took me through this process today. Fixed my problem. Well, my platform problem anyway 😉

  3. Gav,

    Just one of the many reasons I’m working hard on converting over to NeoTicker – multiple broker and data support.

  5. Zoomie,
    Thanks! I will try to do the same.

    Edward,
    I am considering the same as well. I stick to TS for the reason of overall cost efficiency, since i got the platform free by making min 10 R/T a month.
    I am looking into QuoteTracker now.
