Click here to see the video tutorial on how to connect Rithmic 01 Broker Profile.

Set up Rithmic 01 broker profile only if you have Rithmic Live account. If you have Rithmic Paper Trading account, configure Rithmic Paper Trading Broker Profile. If you need data from Rithmic data source, make sure you have Rithmic data feed set up.

If MultiCharts sends a stop order with the price equal to current market price or better (guaranteed to be executed) it will be rejected by the broker. Therefore, MultiCharts converts such stop orders into market orders.

Stop-Limit orders: if at the moment an order is sent its stop level or both stop and limit levels are met, then it will be converted to limit order.

Buy Stop-Limit orders with Stop level higher than Limit level and Sell Stop-Limit orders with Stop level lower than Limit level are rejected by the broker.

Open position Profit/Loss is calculated by Rithmic broker and displayed in MultiCharts.

Unrealized Profit/Loss for the account is calculated by Rithmic broker and displayed in MultiCharts.

Open positions for symbols with hyphen in the name (spreads) are filtered out. In Order and Position Tracker, the positions are displayed only for individual symbols, if they exist in R-Trader.

Rithmic supports Native One-Cancels-Others group. Native OCO-group is used when the broker’s plug-in supports OCO-groups. In this case all OCO orders are sent to the broker directly and unfilled OCO orders will be cancelled by the broker (see OCO-Orders Risk).

Setting up Rithmic 01 Broker Profile

In the Properties Rithmic 01 window (see Managing Broker Profiles) enter the information provided by the broker to connect to Rithmic:

  1. Authorization section.
    Enter Login and Password.
    SSL certificates path is set up by default.
  2. Connectivity section.
    Select the required System and Gateway in the corresponding fields.
    Don’t adjust anything else in this section.
    The Reset button next to Aggregated Quotes is to restore default connection settings.
  3. Default Order Settings section.
    Click Lookup and wait a bit while MultiCharts receives Trade Route information from the Broker. It is possible to select a specific Trade Route for each Exchange. The selected option will be saved once you click OK.
Note: In case Trade Route search gives no results, most likely the login or password or other settings are incorrect.

If you’d like to use the Rithmic account in MultiCharts and in the Rithmic software simultaneously you need to enable the Connect via R|Trader Pro option in File -> New -> QuoteManager -> Tools -> Data Sources -> Rithmic 01 -> Settings. If this option is enabled, it is necessary to have Rithmic software running.

After the broker profile is set up, you can select it for trading, see the How to Select a Broker Account For Trading guide.
