Prodigio Webinar

Dear Prodigio Clients and Friends,

Important information about your Prodigio RTS platform and orders. 

We would like to express our appreciation to you for your continued interest, support, and great assistance in helping shape Prodigio RTS into one of the best trader’s platforms.

We would like to take a moment to update you on changes taking place with Prodigio RTS at TD Ameritrade. We recognize, and are proud to know that many investors and traders like you have come to rely on Prodigio and its unique tools to monitor & scan the markets, spot potential opportunities, and build exciting trading strategies simply and quickly without any need of knowing how to script code. Our objective with Prodigio’s Wizard Lab is the powerful Drag-N-Drop-Point-N-Click technology allowing clients, investors and traders of every experience level to be just that, great traders, without having to become great developers. You can leave that to us…

Thinkorswim by TD Ameritrade will soon be discontinuing all Prodigio client support and education, including direct platform integrated trading & execution services upon the close of business on Thursday, May 31st, 2012. It is important to note that your existing Prodigio RTS orders will no longer be supported by TD Ameritrade. If you have any Prodigio working orders on your TDA or Prodigio rts platform, please take immediate steps to unwind any such working open orders to prepare for the drawdown. TDA would like to remind you that Prodigio rts orders will no longer be available or supported as of Saturday, June 2, 2012.

MPower Trading Systems is pleased to announce effective June 1, 2012, all Prodigio Clients and any new prospective client investor/ trader will be provided FREE direct access and utilization of the entire Prodigio platform in demo (paperTrading mode) via download at www.Prodigiorts.netThe firm's objective is to provide you and each interested client the very best technology experience available to meet all your analytic and trading requirements. We recognize that so many investors and traders rely on Prodigio RTS and its unique trading tools every day. Unfortunately, we cannot provide you detail today as to when or if "Live" trading execution services with thinkorswim by TD Ameritrade will resume following the May 31st termination date. Please know that the entire Prodigio RTS team is working very hard to establish a new business connection to support thinkorswim and TD Ameritrade Live trading accounts moving forward. Prodigio is expected to become available in the near future to another qualified online broker dealer by September 15, 2012 of this year. We truly apologize for any inconvenience this may be causing you. We appreciate your patience with this change and look forward to the opportunities it will present for bringing you even more features on the Prodigio RTS platform.

Please know that the firm and entire Prodigio team is 100% committed to you and making sure the exciting Prodigio technology remains available to you and every client upon request. Rest assured, Prodigio will continue to be made available to you!

IMPORTANT NOTE-Saving your Wizard Lab strategies and Rules before the upcoming Termination date.

As a Prodigio user, you may have created some great automated strategies or trade signals using Wizard Lab. We encourage users to back up these rules and strategies if they would like to retain them for continued use at a later date. Please note that MPower Trading Systems does NOT store copies of user’s rules or strategies on our servers. This information is on your local file system only, and you are responsible for saving this data if you would like to use it at a later date.

You can back up rules and strategies using the Export feature in the Wizard Lab tab. This creates a file on your local file system that contains the rule or strategy. Keep in mind that exporting a rule will contain the rule itself in addition to all rules nested within the rule. For example, if you have rules A and B, where B contains A inside the rule, when you export rule B the file will contain both rule A and rule B. The same applies for strategies. All strategy files will contain all rules inside them. Note that importing a rule or strategy will always import everything in the file; if a name collision occurs, the secondary rule or strategy will contain an index at the end of the name. In the example above, if you export both rule B and rule A, and import them both, you will have: “rule A", "rule B", and "rule A(1)". We recommend deleting duplicated rules if they are unnecessary.

Use the following steps to export rules or strategies:

Step #1: Launch Prodigio and click on the “WizardLab" tab.

Step #2: Export strategies first. Click on the tab "Step 2 - Strategy Builder".

(a) Click "Open" and select a strategy for export. Press "Ok".

(b) Click "Export" and select a directory to export the ".wiz" file to. We recommend keeping all strategies in a separate folder named "strategies". Click "Save".

(c) Repeat for each strategy you want to back up. All rules used by the strategy are contained in these ".wiz" files, so you don't have to export the rules they use.

Step #3: Export any rules not used by the strategies you've exported. Click on the tab "Step 1 - Rule Builder".

(a) Click "Open" and select a rule for export. Press "Ok".

(b) Click "Export" and to select a directory to export the ".wiz" file to. We recommend keeping all rules in a separate folder named "rules". Click "Save".

(c) Repeat for each rule you want to back up. All nested rules used by each rule are contained in these ".wiz" files, so you don't have to export the nested rules they use. The rules and strategies are now saved on your computer to be imported into Prodigio.

Step #4: When the Prodigio platform is available on May 31st at www.prodigiorts.net, you may then begin to import your Wizard Lab strategies into your Prodigio platform.

(a) To import a strategy, click on the tab "Step 2 - Strategy Builder", press "Import", select the ".wiz" file under the "strategies" folder, and press "Open".

(b) To import a rule, click on the tab "Step 1 - Rule Builder", press "Import", select the ".wiz" file under the "rules" folder, and press "Open".

We appreciate your patience with this change and look forward to the opportunities it will present for bringing you even more features on your Prodigio rts platform.

Again, we truly appreciate your continued interest, support and patience during this migration-conversion period. Please let us know if we can be of any further assistance or answer any questions about our technology or services. Our Support email is support@prodigiorts.com.

Thank you and we wish you continued trading success.

Enjoy.......
