I'm a belgian trader (trading from a business account) and looking for a new broker, data feed and software to trade the FDAX (only).
I currently have WH Selfinvest as a broker and use their the Patsystems feed.
I'm a very early retired programmer and wrote my own indicator for FDAX but because my data feed is filtered (10 ticks / second) it isn't possible to use it in a comfortable way with the fipertec charting software (not backfilled oether). Their indicator c++ API also offers very little possibilities.
As for the software i have been looking at Sierra Charts and it looks promising, also the application interface looks well organized. They seem to have a new Eurex data feed that is getting good reviews also. As far as the broker i'm thinking IB, but it seems Sierra Charts does not seem to recommend them (some issues with orders i read on the forum).
Do any of you (european) traders have experience with this combo ?
Or what would you recommend and why ?
I am trading US and EU markets virtually everyday and from your neighboring country
I have an IB account, and use ninjatrader and kinetick with no problems whatsoever.
I can definitely recommend you my broker, it is the most convenient I had found for us traders funded mainly in EUR currency.
I also have high respect for sierrachart: I just don't use it personally due to the fact that I have already bought NT7 years ago and can't justify the need to switch.
I also trade the FDAX futures very heavily during EU regular opening hours, don't hesitate to contact me shall you need further details.
Good luck with your trading.
Successful people will do what unsuccessful people won't or can't do!
