I know this might be another loaded question. Which platform should I start looking at using? I donít like using or purchasing things that is limited. So would there be a platform that you could trade all markets on that would be great on all of them?

This sounds a lot like me. I very much like to have all my options open.

One suggestion I just thought of is perhaps to start with a broker since you mentioned ďall marketsĒ and to my mind this would mean Interactive Brokers. Just not FOREX with leverage.

Now, maybe take a look at which platforms will connect to them. There are many. At least a way to start.

If just futures interest you Stage5Trading is great and really care about their clients. Morad (FT71) is awesome and has done many webinars here at FIO. Anthony is just amazing, Kevin too.

Just as a reference I use Interactive Brokers, Stage5Trading and NinjaTrader Brokerages for FOREX.

But..... you can VERY quickly have too much information and start drowning with this type of approach.

To me you seem very open to learning which is just fantastic for this business. But the risk is going out in too many directions at once and lacking focus. With all these great platforms, tools in them or added to them and data feeds available to us one of my (and many others) challenges is info risk vs. price risk. Basically wanting more info (amounts to in part hesitation) to confirm a trade increasing one $risk.

It is an axiomatic fact that while you meditate you are speaking with your own spirit. In that state of mind you put certain questions to your spirit and the spirit answers: the light breaks forth and the reality is revealed.
