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.

From what I can gather, it does not mean that new NT users will be required to use NT Brokerage. Everything that I am reading is that everybody still has a choice and that their goal is to make the industry even more competitive which would be good for us.

It still is not sure if these promises will be lived up to, but, based on their track record of doing an incredibly good job ith their clients, there is no reasonto doubt it

From what I heard, as of the 15th of July new NT users will be required to use NT Brokerage. If this is wrong I will be more than happy to stand corrected.

I am not an NT user and I have no personal issue here but I do feel sorry for brokers who will get into serious trouble because of this.
Yes, some of those brokers certainly don't deserve my pity BUT I can tell you that my Broker, Matt from Optimus Trading Group made tremendous efforts to give excellent tech support to his clients who use NT (Just like he does for me with Sierra Chart) and he did everything he could to support NT when ZenFire blew up.

I for an example would be extremely disappointed had Sierra Chart suddenly decided to become a brokerage firm.

Also, some of my colleagues who use NT tell me that now, whenever they start NT, a window pops up with a message that encourages users to take advantage of the NT brokerage service. How do you think other brokers who offer NT would feel about that?

Unfortunately you heard wrong, allow me to clarify:

Existing clients - Can continue to use NinjaTrader through their existing brokerage relationship now and in the future.

New Clients - Can use NinjaTrader through any of our supporting brokerage partners publicly listed here - NinjaTrader Ecosystem

That's competition I believe in a way it will bring down execution cost and will create transparency in the rate structure as it is hidden at most brokerage firms . Optimus is great brokerage and Matt as a person is a awesome guy .

@optionzen Sure these NT rates are low but if this leads to less brokers that support NT then it is not good for NT license holders imo. I don't see this is as transformative for the industry. I see it as a step backwards because we may all end up with less.

The way it looks to me is this could eventually end with NT license holders having to use NT brokerage and Continuum exclusively because no other players are left in the game. NT can smile all day long and say we will have choice. But how long will that choice last when they are competing directly with their partner brokers?

All IMO.

"The day I became a winning trader was the day it became boring. Daily losses no longer bother me and daily wins no longer excited me. Took years of pain and busting a few accounts before finally got my mind right. I survived the darkness within and now just chillax and let my black box do the work."

I just want to point out that during the zenfire fiasco and melt down, it was NinjaTrader CEO, Raymond Deux, who stepped up to the plate to answer questions and keep mirus clients informed as best as he could, so if mirus was going down, I'm happy that NT is the one to pick up the pieces and carry on... they have proven their value and are clearly customer-focused.

1. I stand corrected and I apologize.

2. Looking at the list of your supporting brokerage partners I can see that some of the brokers who offer NT and strongly support it do not appear there and my personal feeling is that this is very unfair to them. But this is just my personal feeling.

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.

- Is it possible to have the account in EUR instead of USD ?
- If yes, are there EUR Tax Statements and are USD Futures gains and losses converted automatic ?
