TradeStation data problems...

    Sporadically up and down all morning...this happens a bit too often with TradeStation....

    Any suggestions for more relable data providers?
  2. Mine just came back.

    They all have issues time to time.
  3. Although TS has not communicated with its customers (not surprising) as to what happened, rumor has it that they were putting new servers online this morning (Why in hell they would do that is beyond comprehension especially since their customers were not warned so we could take precautions).

    Seems they could have done this at night or on the weekend.

    Of course they had a FUBAR and reverted back to the old configuration.

    Hey TS:

    1. It is OK to communicate with your customers when stuff like this goes down and we can decide whether to trade or wait until things are stable.

    2. Tell us what happened and what you are doing to prevent it from happening again.

    We are not mushrooms and don't like being treated like ones.

  4. You will never, ever get them to change. TS is like any other secretive, Cuban refugee organization and has been for the past 20 years. :D
  5. I saw the same laggy--nish today. I always assume it is me. TS is usually pretty good.

    Maybe we should organize our own alert system amongst the TS users?
  6. It was being discussed on TSW soon after it happened. Of course, never any communication from Tradestation, just users asking basically is it me or them that is screwed up.

    The "Network Status Page" remained as always ALLGREEN.

    Does this happen too often? I'm in the process of opening an account with them and this got me really worried.

    What other alternatives are there to match TS power and flexibility?

    By the way, what do you think about their FX trading service?

  8. TradeStation - WTF is up with you pieces of %$#@. In the last 2 trading weeks you have had 2 full on US equity data outages and now a spot currency data outage. For all you rocket quants that still work at that firm, that is 3 major outages in 3 weeks.


    TradeStation - "The Leader in Rule Based Trading" more like TradeStation = "Pieces of %$#@ that have never risked $00.01 USD in any market that think they offer something related to financial markets"
  9. BTW - You should consider trading the following amount of capital with their spot currency trading division:

    $00.00 USD.

    Tradestation sucks!!!

    I sent them a 3rd party check inadvertently to start a Forex account and they said they were sending it back to me by next-day Fed Ex delivery since they couldn't accept 3rd party checks.

    That's fine, but when you tell me that you're going to send it back to me by overnight Fed Ex then I expect it the next day.

    Its been 2 weeks now and I still haven't gotten my check back.

    I guess they're trying to hold my money so I will send them another check. bastards!!!

    I'm cancelling my data service with them starting today.

    so long Tradestation.........
