I have used Ninjatrader for a long time and I wanted to try out their brokerage because they have always had good support. So I have been trading with an IRA account for some time and have used the same custodian for years. When I tried to open a small account at NTB and told them I was using a different custodian. I was emailed a response :

I find this strange that Ninjatrader Brokerage would only allow the use of a single custodian. Am I missing something ? Since it seems like they would be cutting out a lot of people who have IRAs at places like MTrust.

I can't speak as to why they only allow Midland, but I can say that my own experiences with Midland (directly, on my own, not via NTB) have been excellent.


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.
