Quantower Connection Instructions

We are working on adding Quantower to our supported platforms list during checkout. At this time, please select R|Trader Pro as your platform choice when purchasing a Trading Combine in order to connect to Quantower.

Important Things to Know Before Getting Started

  • ALWAYS monitor your NET P&L in R|Trader rather than Quantower by clicking on Trader Dashboard and locating the column labeled P&L. R|Trader automatically calculates commissions and fees, while Quantower does not display your Net P&L accurately in real-time. Topstep® Trade Reports are calculated using the data from R|Trader.
  • At this time, you are unable to connect to both R|Trader & Quantower at the same time. This means you will need to disconnect from one platform before connecting to the other throughout the trading day.

Installation and Connection Instructions

  1. Download the app installer and launch the Quantower.exe file
  2. Select the folder to extract application files
  3. Once an extraction process is finished, the platform will start automatically with an option to select a dxFeed Simulated connection or Binance connection. Please proceed with the dxFeed Simulated connection and click “Let’s Start.” A default workspace will be created.
  4. Navigate to the Quantower toolbar and click on dxFeed to pull up the recent connections.Screenshot_13.jpg
  5. At this time, you may disconnect the dxFeed connection.
  6. Search for Topstep using the search bar or scrolling down the list. (You may favorite the Topstep connection by clicking on the star next to the connection name).Screenshot_14.jpg
  7. When the Topstep login window appears, enter your platform account username and password in the appropriate fields.
  8. Click Connect for the Topstep connection, and the connection should be established with a green circle next to Topstep.
  9. The dxFeed can be removed from the Quantower toolbar by right-clicking over the name of the connection and selecting Hide from the toolbar.
