    FXCM connection problem

    I try to connect with FXCM Datafeed and I receive the message " Login failed: FXCM login failed, reason given: 'Can't connect to price server.' " Is this a problem of Ninjatrader platform or FXCM datafeed.

    Also, what version of Windows are you using? (Example, Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 10)

    Thanks in advance; we look forward to assisting you further.

          I'm experiencing the same issue, I'm based in the UK and the connection ceased working on Friday at 19:00hrs BST (14:00hrs ET).

          I'm using 8.0.12.0 64-bit (Multi-Broker)

            Hello TraderOwl,

            Thank you for your post.

            This issue that geo9419 is reporting is different from the one you're reporting as this particular issue is specific to using an FXCM connection with NinjaTrader 7 on a Windows 7 machine.

            However, I see that you're using an older version of NinjaTrader 8. Upgrading to the current version may well solve your issue. To update NinjaTrader, please follow the steps below.
            • First, copy your license key from NinjaTrader under Help> License Key then exit NinjaTrader
            • Click on the link: http://ninjatrader.com/PlatformDirect
            • Enter your license key and press Submit
            • Select 'NinjaTrader 8'
            • Select 'Download'
            • Critical: Before running the installer, ensure NinjaTrader is closed.
            Once you've installed the new version, please restart NinjaTrader and try again to connect. If you are unable to do so, please write into to PlatformSupport[AT]NinjaTrader[DOT]Com and we will be happy to look into this further for you.

            Please let us know if we may be of further assistance to you.

                Dear Kate,

                You have a right I install the NT7 in Virtual Machine with windows 10 and everything was OK. Of course is a very weird because the new NT8 works without any problem with Win 7 and the old NT7 have such a problem with Win7.

                I would like to ask you if you will fix it because I will spend one weekend to install the Windows 10 as dual boot with win 7 plus all my programs from the begin.

                  Hello geo9419,

                  Thank you for your reply.

                  This is a known issue we are working with FXCM to resolve. NinjaTrader 8 is not affected, so you could just use NT8 on Windows 7 as another workaround until a solution is found. Currently we have no timeline on a solution, however, we will be updating all clients when there is any information.

                  Thanks for your patience, we look forward to resolving this issue.

                      We have a potential work-around in place for the FXCM/Windows 7 issue:
                      1. Have this windows update installed (I suspect you may already have this installed, but try installing to check): https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/...rotocols-in-wi
                      2. Then, apply the easy fix which can be downloaded here: https://aka.ms/easyfix51044
                      3. Then, restart your PC, open NinjaTrader, and test the FXCM connection
                      Please let me know the results of this test.

                        The easyfix patch that was just suggested fixed it for me. Thank you!

                        I can't answer for the original poster but just wanted to say I had the same problem connecting to forex as poster geo9419 above ." Login failed: FXCM login failed, reason given: 'Can't connect to price server.' ". So I did the suggested fix using the easyfix patch. I even did the patch first and the updates for win 7 second and it still worked that way for me.I noticed a buncha updates that didn't work for win 7 so I just installed any that actually worked for my version of windows (which were only 2 very small updates out of 7. ) and that definitely allows connection to forex now. Just wanted to chime in on this.
