I first day of learning how to trade starts today! I'm very excited about my new adventure.

My first question of many many questions that I have to all of you guys is that I Understand that NinjaTrader is the Platform of choice and so which broker should I go with? I want to start off on the right foot!

After choosing the Platform and Broker to use, where do I go from there? What is my first item on the list that I need to start off learning?

Thank you so much

Good luck on your new adventure. A piece of advice: don't pick a broker just yet. First and foremost: Spend your time learning before simulating or doing anything with brokers or real money. Figure out what type of person you are and a trading method that suits your person and situation . Spend your time reading this forum and watching webinars. It's the best resource there is. You'll find all the resources you need. Big Mike has a few suggestions for newbies. a free license from NT and free EOD Data or a small invest in real time data to study and develop an edge is all you need at first. This racket is all about you vs you so being prepared is critical before pressing a button in real time.
