Searching reliable broker with low commisions

These points are so valid it pains me.

I think I will just go and buy a lifetime licence on Ninjatrader 8. I am wokring on that platform all the time, doing all my research, all my testing and statistics. Its a way of least resistance for me. I also like BookMap a lot, great idea, but I am not sure if transition to new platform would do me any good. But then, if I decide that I would like to go for lifetime licence, should I go for multibroker one? Doest it pay off? Can I upgrade it later? Maybe I should anwser this question myself and search for all terms and offers of supported brokers.

Damn, I should see a platform license as asset of my "company", not as a huge expenditure.

Anyway, I am also very happy with Degiro commisions. DAX is very cheap compared to what I have now. I will explore that broker possibilities futher.

Perhaps this is something to consider?
@Big Mike here at FIO is going to have a Trade Journal contest very soon. The prize is a free lifetime Ninjatrader license.

Actually the entire story goes like this: The Trade Journaling contest was scheduled for this month of April. It was to be a Video Trade Journal. Due to low interest @Big Mike was forced to reschedule and change the contest to the regular type of Trade Journal contest (text and screen shots perhaps some videos etc).

Here is the contest thread

As far as I know the contest is being rescheduled soon with the same prizes.

FWIW I like the way you have presented yourself here in your thread. You seem like a very honest and hardworking soul. If you were to start a Trade Journal here at FIO and enter this contest I would read your Journal and vote for you!
