Before connecting your Rithmic credentials for your Gauntlet™/Gauntlet Mini™/ Trader Career Path to Bookmap, please complete the following steps:

Step 1: Click on the following link, input your Rithmic credentials, and accept the Rithmic Agreements:

Step 2: Bookmap connects to the Rithmic data feed through Rithmic’s own platform, R Trader Pro.

Download R Trader Pro from Rithmic’s website:

Copy and paste your username and password to the relevant fields. Do not copy and paste spaces.

Select “Rithmic Paper Trading” and the gateway that is closest to you.

Click on “Allow Plug-Ins”

This is how it should look on your end: 

Click on the green arrow on the bottom right beside “Gateway” to launch R Trader Pro.

Step 3: Download the latest version of Bookmap from the link below:

Log in to the application using your license key.

After you enter the license key it will open “Bookmap run options”. Choose the third option for “External data / Trading through your brokerage account (real or simulated)”

Connect Rithmic DataFeed to Bookmap:

From the top menu, select “Connections” and then “Configure”:

It will open the Connections menu, which will allow you to add a connection.

Select “Rithmic” from the Platform dropdown menu and choose “Rithmic Paper Trading” as the system and “Chicago” as the gateway.

Click on “Plugin mode”.

Click “OK” when finished.

Now, your Rithmic connection will appear in the Connections tab, and you can begin to trade through it.

Your Gauntlet™/Gauntlet Mini™/ Trader Career Path account will most likely start with your Rithmic user and have gau/gau25/gau50/gau75/gau100/gau150 in its name depending on your account type/size.

For example, if your Rithmic username is jsmit1234, your $25,000 Gauntlet™/ Gauntlet Mini™ / Trader Career Path™ account will be jsmit1234gau25+random digits.
