Changing of Data Feeds


#1

My question is in regards to changing of data feeds in Optimus Futures. Will my positions be reflected if I change data feeds, or do I need to exit all positions? I just want to be sure I see all my open futures positions.

If you change your data feeds, we highly recommend that you exit all positions. Although your live positions and orders are typically on the exchange, when you switch from one data feed to another, your positions will not be reflected unless someone manually inputs it, however, the manual process may be prone to errors.
The same logic applies to platforms with different data feeds.

You do not have to exit positions if the data (API) will stay the same, but you are only changing platforms. But, we suggest that you check with us that tech staff before you make any such changes. We will advise on the best way to transition from one futures data feed to another.
