RightEdge Beta 4, Build 291 Available

RightEdge Beta 4, Build 291

Another quick bug fix build as we've addressed a large number of issues over the last couple of weeks.

As you know, in build 289 we added the Interactive Brokers and OpenTick historical retrieval capabilities.  This build also adds support for setting commission values to the Paper Trader broker for use in simulation.  Since we only overwrite service settings on a new installation, it may be necessary (if you do not completely uninstall and remove the RightEdge directory) to configure the Paper Trade Broker manually.

We've also upgraded to the latest Open E-Cry API.  OEC will have full broker support in the next build.

A Note To IB Users:

IB limits the rate at which you can request data.  You are limited to 60 requests every 10 minutes.  Each request can be for a maximum of 2000 bars or 1 week of data. If you have too many requests within 10 minutes, IB will give you a "historical data request pacing violation" error, and you'll have to wait for up to 10 minutes before sending another request.  You may want to set the download start date in the folder settings.

After the successful download of RightEdge, extract the zip file to a temporary directory and run the Setup application.  Follow the steps in the installation wizard and once the files are copied to their final destination, RightEdge is ready to use.


It is highly recommended that RightEdge is uninstalled before installing this refresh.  In addition to running the uninstall (located in the Start/Remove Programs in the Control Panel), it is recommended that the RightEdge program folder is completely removed.  After running the uninstall, use Windows Explorer to navigate to the RightEdge folder (the default folder is located in C:\Program Files\Yye Software) and delete this folder.


RightEdge creates a program group in the Start Menu.  There are three items in the list, RightEdge, Getting Started Guide and RightEdge Developer Guide.  It is highly recommended that you take a look at the Getting Started Guide to learn the basics of navigating around the software and understanding key features.  Use the RightEdge Developer Guide to help build systems from code.  The RightEdge Developer Guide is now available online at
