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.

Hopefully this is still in the works as some of us are patiently awaiting this development before opening an account with NTB.

Yes. We entered into a relationship with an additional FCM last quarter and have been working with them to integrate our processes. We hope to be in a position to discuss this option with prospects within the next month.

Backup Access

If you have a Ninjatrader account with Ninjatrader Brokerage and you use the CQG Continuuuuuuuum connection, what is the best way to have an alternative/backup access in case of emergency.

Sometimes my NT crashes or my internet connection drops. In the past I always had the IB Mobile App where I could just login and go flat.

What is the best way to achieve this ?

A Ninja branded (ideally) very simple mobile app that can do the very simplest of actions in case of emergency.

What about that ?

You can get set up with CQG Mobile, you need to call our brokerage team for this.

OK - I did.

It's not a "great" solution. Whilst I agree that the $25/month i.e. $300/year solution may be better than nothing .. it really is a steep price for a mere emergency backup.

I'm pretty sure your guys are absolutely dying to release an app .. wouldn't this very simple one be a good idea.

App Features:

a. Secured by PIN (chosen at installation time)
b. Connection Choice (let's say we start with just the Ninjatrader Brokerage accounts first :-) ) in Settings
c. Automatic login on startup
c. Home Page display

- Account Information
- last trade time/date
- current position

d. "Go Flat" button

e. Log Out button

I think that this little pony would be a great start for the Ninjatraderbrokerage stable of apps !

very best regards

Thanks for the suggestion.

There must be a misunderstanding, there is no monthly charge with CQGM.

Ninjatrader Brokerage - Solution

Well. It's certainly early days but being a futures.io (formerly BMT) Elite member (with all the benefits and indeed responsibilities that come with that ... i.e. "be nice" ..) is sure working out here.

Why do I say this ?

a. a quick broker switch (OK .. it wasn't quick .. it took some time .. ) and I've managed to (almost)half my commission & reduce my overall price information costs - I don't want to put a number on this .. but it's worth hundreds and hundreds per month.

b. I guess because futures.io (formerly BMT)/we are taken seriously ... you get a direct line to Ninjatrader and issues like my backup CQG connection get sorted out in minutes.

I know that the folks at Ninjatrader are busy with lots of stuff and no doubt treading the own brokerage/multi-broker system line carefully but it seems that there are benefits.

Many thanks to all @NinjaTrader

regards

p.s. incidentally the CQG mobile "app" isn't an app. HTML5. Maybe even more flexible than an app... not sure. It's not bad at all ... and does the job.

The list is located here - Brokers | Futures, Forex and Equities | NinjaTrader Ecosystem

NinjaTrader does not currently support options but for stocks it is TD Ameritrade, MB Trading and Interactive Brokers.

You are welcome and thanks for sharing your experience.

When we launched the brokerage the intent was to bring transparency to trading costs by posting our commissions front and center on our website. I am glad we were able to save you hundreds of $ per month, that's significant.
