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.

Backoffice Capabilities

I recently opened an account with NTB. Although I have not yet placed any trades through that account, one area that seems to be lacking is customized reporting features that provide data in not only a canned format but would allow a user to export specific trade activity in say CSV format for analyzing personal trade performance.

In order to use the account interface in the NT platform additional information has to be inputted such as commissions in order to show data more accurately. But if the database experiences issues and needs to be reset, all historical trade data is lost.

Is Ninja looking to create a better back office capability for traders?

Cheers,
Jester

NOT FAIR


I must admit...I'm EXTREMELY disappointed in Ninja Trader as a company!!

You originally gave us the option to trade with various brokerages and charged us $1495 for a Multi Brokerage license.

NOW you go into partnership with FXCM! Basically reducing our choices drastically and FORCE us to trade with them only and do away with the Multi Brokarage licence and replace it with Lifetime for $995.

You have taken away our FREEDOM of choice with whom we can trade with, and basically are forcing us to trade with a brokerage that is deeply in debt and and has a reputation for stop hunting!

What are you talking about? Details?

Mike

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)

I suspect there is a misunderstanding so I would appreciate some clarity. I will respond somewhat blindly to your comments:

- We have not taken away our Multi-Broker license
- We have not reduced any brokerage options from paying clients based on what brokerage option was available at the time of their purchase
- We just started offering FX through our brokerage but we still maintain relationships for FX trading through MB Trading, Interactive Brokers and GAIN Capital --> Nothing has changed here

- You can purchase a Lifetime license on our purchase page, it's still available
- Correct, NinjaTrader Brokerage is an IB to FXCM however, saying we are a brokerage is still correct
- Not sure the point on stop hunting and how it relates to us taking choice away

In any case, as I mentioned in my earlier post nothing has been taken away from anyone who paid for a license. You get what was available at the time of purchase.

I stand corrected, and I apologize for jumping to conclusions!!

One thing I'm certain, is that I think the Ninja Trader is the BEST charting software available anywhere, and I would rather abandon Forex and stick with Futures (ES/CL) and continue to trade with Ninja Trader!!
