The data issue I had in the chatroom from the exchanges today on my stock charting… they posted an explanation (excerpt below).

DATA ISSUES – NOVEMBER 7, 2016

As some of you may have noticed, we are currently experiencing issues with some data sets on our charts.

We’ve confirmed that the issue is with our data provider ICE Data (renamed from the recently acquired Interactive Data). We are working closely with them to resolve everything as soon as possible – so far we’ve received three updates, which do not provide an ETA as of the time of this post.

It’s not typical in the financial data provider industry to be down for a long time, due to the nature of the markets. This means hopefully the data will be back on fairly soon, we are hoping by end of day today. We’ll keep everyone updated if more news come up, but if things get fixed – you’ll simply see the charts start working!

Thanks for your patience and continued support. It doesn’t depend on us but we are trying to help fix it.

Looks like it’s repaired and Tuesday will be back to normal – yeehaw cause that was a tough tough tough day trying to reset with different charting – just wasn’t the same. I had around eight plays I was considering and could only pull the trigger on the oil $UWTI trade (which actually worked out well +3% on small portfolio today).

So back to normal tomorrow.

Welcome to our Stock Trading Chat Room!

Below are memorandum notes important for our subscribers as we move from pre-launch to official launch Jan 1, 2107. Please check back regularly as many regular questions will have answers posted here along with various important updates. HERE is the link to enter our stock chat room (free to public until Dec 1, 2016).

Nov 4, 2016 Updates:

The screen sharing lag will either be completely better today or almost completely better – the equipment was installed last night and now it is just a matter of us working it all correctly:) So that may take a day or so.

The grey out should not be an issue now – fixed.

The onboarding and payments new members are dealing with we expect to have upgraded this weekend and for other room updates please review below.

Nov 3, 2106 Updates:

Screen sharing issue (grey out at times) and chart lags equipment being installed today so this will be a non issue Friday or Monday at latest.

Algorithm charting for all algorithms to be released next week (after election).

For other recent updates see below…

Nov 1, 2016 Updates:

PayPal subscriptions:

Some attendees are having difficulty with the Paypal function… especially from Europe, but also in other areas of the world. Sartaj (@hundalSHS on Twitter) is working on that and will have a secondary method available on our site this Sunday evening at latest.

On-boarding / signing in to room:

Some attendees are having difficulty with onboarding to the trading chat room itself… this is being sorted as I type. Any problem please email or DM us.

Screen sharing charts blanking out and throttling bandwidth:

So this has been solved and won’t occur by end of week. You will notice the chart screen grey out at times until Friday and the charts will take some time to load until then (causing us to have to re-boot).

Alerts in Twitter, Chat Room, Email, SMS:

Tweets on our personal feeds are delayed and will stay that way (to protect the integrity of premium subscriptions as we roll out). However, in room alerts in chat will get better as we progress. Again, Sartaj, Tyler, and Shawn are intermittently in the room between now and Jan 1 2017 and after Jan 1 2017 alerts, moderator functions, constant flow of market data etc will be much different at that point. As below, the email and SMS alerts will commence sometime next week.

Algorithms:

We have had some questions about algo roll-outs and how to use them for futures. All our algorithms are in development. They are all represented in a charted form until Sartaj and software engineers begin coding them in January with goal to eventually be probability indicators for the trader. Until then however, they are charted. They all have targets and indicators in the charting. We are rolling them out one at a time right now and starting with oil. We have limited the maximum attendees in the chat room for this reason because there will be a learning curve for subscribers (like any other indicator you may use to trade equities etc with). So you will see us introduce the charting with the algorithmic calculated indicators in the chat room and with each they will eventually be only available by subscription. For example, we are starting with oil, we are sharing the basic charting currently and soon we will move on to more advanced algorithmic indicators (intra-day) with our subscribers and then also be introducing the simplest form of the next algo and so on. The next step becomes coding. The process from introducing to the room to only being available as a subscription (and coding starting) we expect to be 30 – 60 days for each algo. In other words, oil is being introduced right now and 60 days from now at most we would expect that algorithmic charting to only be available to EPIC the Oil algo subscribers (and it will be the first to enter coding phase in the new year as a result).

With respect to using it in futures… sure, it can be used as an edge for futures. But you will need access 24 hours to the charting which we don’t expect for 60 or so days.

Thanks again for the support! You guys and gals have been great! Email anytime of DM please!

Best.

Oct 31, 2106 Updates:

For attendees that cannot get voice portion of broadcast I will do my best to get all alerts to chat room and Twitter. However, until our official launch our moderators and software engineers are not full-time in room until Jan 1, 2017 (for official launch). They’re running mad getting ready – so they will be in room some days but not all days.

Until Jan 1 questions in room will be answered after market hours. Message in room, DM my Twitter feed @curtmelonopoly or email info@compoundtrading.com.

We are also work with some other traders to get their rooms going early 2017 on our upcoming platform and also with traders that will be testing algorithms in 2017.

Algorithmic charts – we will start releasing them for $SPY, Silver, Oil, Gold, US Dollar, and Natural Gas slowly between now and Jan 1 to allow for proper time to work with our members and the disciplines therein.

We have a 300 limit in our room prior to Jan 1 at official launch. Paid members will take priority should limit be reached.

First 200 members receive 50% off regular rates. See website.

November is free to the public.

December is free to members paid and signed on for Jan 1 official launch.

Until we are in our new digs here over the next few weeks and the technology set-up… the screen sharing will be intermittent. We do however seem to have bandwidth for chat room, voice and moderate screen sharing. The SMS alerts and email alerts will be active within a week too.

Any questions email us info@compoundtrading.com.

In the meantime, welcome to our room and enjoy complimentary access until Dec 1, 2016!

Let’s bank!
