I have a funded a live account and would like to connect.

What is the host?? (Testing it was api.gainfutures.com)

Is the UUID just any unique string I choose or do I need a specific one?

Is the username and password the same as I use to login to Gain Trader?

What is the remote Port?

Can I increase the number of symbols I register to 1500 so I can receive options quotes and if so how?

Thanks,

Darryl

Yes, server is api.gainfutures.com. See https://gainfutures.com/GFAPI/?topic=html/fc0637f9-3fd0-407e-ad3a-51e79c4014ed.htm

>Is the UUID just any unique string I choose or do I need a specific one?
UUID 9e61a8bc-0a31-4542-ad85-33ebab0e4e86 can be used. See same page as above https://gainfutures.com/GFAPI/?topic=html/fc0637f9-3fd0-407e-ad3a-51e79c4014ed.htm

>Is the username and password the same as I use to login to Gain Trader?
Your developer credentials are not the same as your live account.

>What is the remote Port?
Port
GF API Order server is accessible on port 9210.
GF API Price server is accessible on port 9211.
The Aggregate server is considered to be on port 9210.

See https://gainfutures.com/GFAPI/?topic=html/fc0637f9-3fd0-407e-ad3a-51e79c4014ed.htm

>Can I increase the number of symbols I register to 1500 so I can receive options quotes and if so how?
No, we do not generally that high. You may use the default limit we allow in our developer account. When you go live, we can review your needs at that time.

Thanks for the reply:

I am going live and I tried the username and password that I use to log into the LIVE Gain Trader and it did not work for the API ( with the API the login, quotes and trading works with the test account user ID and password but not the live account user ID and password and all the other setting are the same)??

Can you entitle for 600 symbols on the live account so I can trade options??
