T4 has been designed to install very quickly and easily. Just follow the instructions below. If you have any questions please contact your Administrator.

To install the platform you can visit our website www.ctsfutures.com at the top of the home page click on the Download Link and choose the platform you wish to install.

TIP: The live download and simulated download are two separate environments. So if you open a live acct you will need to install the Live version and use the live user name and password provided by your firm administrator. A simulated user will not work in the live environment.

The Current install might prompt you to install Windows Framework 4.0, and all corresponding windows updates are required to run T4. If you are missing it.
  1. Click Open or Run to begin the T4 download and follow the online instructions.
    If you didn’t click Open or Run, but rather you saved the file to your machine, a double click on the file downloaded will be required to continue the install.

  3. Login to the system using the same details you used to login to the T4 Website.
