I am a beginner learning the trader trade. I am mostly self learned.
My goal is to be able to earn a living with trading so that i can live the second half of my life differently than working for someone else and managing others and customers.
I have been practicing trading with a sim account on Ninja Trader with the demo CQG feed.
I'm at the point where i am looking to start getting ready for live trading which means finding a Broker and Data feed, at the moment I plan on purchasing at least a monthly lease of Ninja Trader.
I am asking you advice for the best Data providers (CQG, Kinetick etc..?) and if you have any broker recommendations for Canadians.
I want to trade futures. Symbols I have been working with so far are ES, YM ,NQ ,TF, FDAX, CL. GC
Looking forward to your advice and will read the info on this forum.
Hi my name is Alex and I want to learn how to trade futures. I have absolutely no experience but I'm looking for a change to what i'm currently doing. I found this site when i was researching another site called day traders academy. If it were not for google, I was seconds from paying $3000 for that program until i noticed a thread linked here. Well it should take me a good year to study and learn from you guys before I began to trade. Thanks for having me.

I'm brand new to day trading. I've been swing trading stocks for years with decent success. I've been sim trading since September 2015 and am hoping to begin live trading sometime in mid 2016. I joined this community because I've learned in my professional career that it's impossible to do anything worthwhile in an echo chamber.
Thanks for welcoming me, and good luck to you all.

I was always fascinated by trading and investments.
so i started trading about 2 years ago with markets for a few months, with little or no understanding and even less success.
i stopped because i moved continents, i still desire to learn and trade with success.
I am glad i joined this site.
Good luck to all and i look forward to the communications
