@Big Mike maybe better way to say it is NT moving towards a "closed ecosystem" that they completely control. If they do a good job it is not necessarily a bad thing. Apple is an example of a closed system. I think the struggle for some including me is we could end up with less choice from a brokerage perspective. From a customer perspective that choice has allowed us to kick the bad brokers to the side and go with a broker we felt good about. That being said it remains to be seen whether this will be good or bad. From the webinars I see why they feel the need to do it and can't argue with some of their business logic.

Simple, if you like the product use it, if not don't.

TradeStation could use some competition and this is the way to get there. NT needs to become a bigger player in retail.

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.
