Transact and Trademaven have had repeated outages for the last month. It has gotten extremely bad the last week especially if you use Trademaven. Last week I got burned for an amount slighty over $6000.00. I had an order in short the ES with limit bracket orders around it for my profit and loss protection. When Trademaven/Transact went down it wiped out my stop limit orders. The contracts would have sold for over a $550.00 gain but turned into over a $6000.00 loss by the time I could get through on the phone to get the order unstuck. The limt orders I placed should have been sitting at the CME, not in their computer system somewhere. The owners of Trademaven and Transact said it was a tough deal but that is the breaks in trading. Trademaven and Transact have had a falling out and Trademaven is taking all of their business to Mann Financial as of 2-24-06. TradeMaven and Transact have been close to unusable since 2-14-06. The criminal part is that neither company would put out a single email to tell their clients that their system was unstable and to trade at your own risk. I found out because I am in a very large alert room that has close ties to Trademaven. TradeMaven recommended to the Instructor that he not use their platform until they moved to Mann Financial. Got to keep those commissions rolling in I guess. I got tired of it and filed a complaint with the NFA(National Futures Association) I like Trademaven's platform when it works but their lack of ethics and customer service are the pits. I could not recommend these 2 companies to anyone.
