    Did anybody notice their trade server went down from 2:15PM - 2:19PM earlier?

    Great timing, I have one thing to say, FUCK YOU TradeStation from the heart!

    Yep, I experienced a major freeze...the biggest freeze ever.

    I've been having lots of problems since December.

    My computer is the same, internet connection is the same, i even minimized a few workspaces...:(

    I am going to start to look around...what are the options out there?
  3. TS froze 2x today for me. I had to restart both times. Sucks. What was weird was the charting was still going but T&S was frozen and the Matrix was all messed up. It said I was not logged in, all kinds of strange behavior. What a piece of junk.

    That's funny cause the opposite occured for me:

    T&S and Matrix running fine while the charts were all frozen...:(

    Watch the delay between MATRIX and T&S/Trade Server, it's close to a full second. Ever wonder why your orders DO NOT get executed? I am not doing more than 10RT/month with them again.....10 NOT 11!

    SHAME ON YOU TradeStation.

    Going into the Fed I had a Long EDM08 ... 2:15 complete freeze until about 2:17 ...... Didn't surprise me honestly but was a bit disappointed with the level of service.... as a side note I have also had a series of jerk ups with the equipment since Dec..... I trade from the West Coast and am not always able to monitor the open for Bonds and a few times I have found the quotes down/ system restarted "Look Inside the Bar" disabled .... thats just a pain in the ass. I would go for Smart Quant if I had the time or patience to program my strategies in C .....Honestly if I did know C I would have been gone from TS .... the lack of Eurex execution and Universal Account is baffling.
  9. 1. Study online.

    2. Go to a community or junior college.

    3. Get a book and teach yourself

    ... and btw, it's C#, not C.

    There's no excuse for sticking with a program that continues to give you guys sub-par performance in mission ciritical situations, that's just laziness, and it's going to cost you a lot more in the long run than learning how to code in C# on OpenQuant.

    Believe me, I feel your pain, annoying shit like this just gets inside you, but you're gonna have to take the bull by the horns on this one.

    Sincere good luck.

    I heard the new version 8.3 has been giving a lot of users many problems.

    I tried to get back to 8.2 and all my saved desktops, indicators, etc aren't working.

    i would have to rebuild everything from scratch, which is about 50 different charts...:(

    I gave up.
