A consideration, maybe a tiered Inactivity Fee. Seems high to pay $25/month because you didn't make a $4 round trip trade. Maybe this can be tiered by NT license as well:
- $25/month Not owned/leased
- $12/month Leased
- $4/month lifetime

Thanks, as a lifetime license holder, I will sometimes go into development mode for automated strategy and it hurts to pay $25/month for not making the $4 trade...

Just a note that my understanding of the inactivity fee is as follows:

- If you are actually truly inactive, meaning you do not log in or trade, then there is no inactivity fee
- If you are actively using the data and simply do not trade, there is an inactivity fee


Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
