Welcome to

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

Just a sim trader still

Futures Edge on FIO

What happens to the S&P 500 when a new President takes office?

Hi there, thanks for the welcome message
I've been demo trading for just under 2 years, the last year with The Day Trading Academy on the E-mini.
My reason for joining this forum? Well, I was looking for some threads on the best platform to choose. I was demo trading with Ninja (awesome platform imo) but now I've reached my 'demo allowance' and their brokers (Dorman, & Phillips) don't want to give me an account - I don't match their financial requirements :-(
I've been consistently profitable over the last 4 months (just under 2 points a day - really good enough for my wants) and I so want to start trading live... but I need a platform that can take DTA's proprietary indicator set - and the only one they recommend is Ninja - bah!
Anyway, thanks for all the great information in this forum; I hope I can be of service to someone as well as acquire some more valuable knowledge.

My hero btw, is the late great Mark Douglas - may he be blessed a thousand-fold wherever he is now :-)

I'm a day trader that has traded for 9 years in U.S. stocks/ETFs.

I just recently moved over from another platform to Ninjatrader. I am not a programmer, but have self-taught myself easyscript type code, to the point that I can write full blown strategies, exit systems, etc. However, I'm a real novice at Ninjatrader's C# environment. This forum has been a real help in getting started with Ninjascript. My heartfelt thanks to all the contributors and to BigMike.

All the Best,

Hello Haven't posted much but have been trading on & off for the last 20+ years. Thankfully I've gotten progressively better at not losing money and, most years, am a profitable account for whichever broker / platform I happen to be on (currently mostly ToS and TradeStation). I'd love to meet fellow trading nerds in / around Austin, please ping me here if you'd be interested in grabbing coffee / drinks sometime.
