Welcome to futures.io.

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.

I do actually. I came originally from using Trading Station II with FXCM trading FX. Went to Tradestation after that. A lot of people seem to like Tradestation but everything just seemed so in-depth and non-intuitive when trying to change basic things while using it. Really seemed like everything has just been tacked on top of the old as it has evolved. Was a mission to track down how to change certain settings each time I tried to do something different with the platform. I don't think there is a trail period available for Tradestation either.

Ninjatrader has a great interface. Is easy to use and its relatively easy to track down online how to get things done with the platform plus there is a massive library of 3rd party indicators/strategies available. NT support is quick to help out with issues also. Only issue I can fault it on is I think they have limited the brokers it can be used with not long ago for new users but I guess its offset as they are a broker themselves now also.

They have free trials of NT. Probably be your best bet to start with that and test it out and see if its what you are after. So far, I'm happy with the change.

Awesome! Thanks for the info, I will definitely check them out today. Ease of us is a big thing for me, along with good customer service. I don't need all the fancy bells and whistles, just something that works! And the last thing I want to do is spend hours online searching for solutions to basic functions. Thanks again for the heads up buddy!
