I have been practicing for the past 3 months trading eminis using NinjaTrader 8 demo account with live data and have been very satisfied with the platform overall.
I have made the decision to buy the software and am not sure which broker/data package would be suitable for me. I would like to use the software to trade eminis and also analyze historical data of ETFs and Stock at new york exchange and potentially a few other exchanges (Japan, Hong Kong, etc for night trading). This is my evaluation criteria:
1. Broker Commissions for round trip
2. Prefer strongly that orders/stops/OCO reside at the exchange or data provider server at the minimum
3. Data quality/reliability/minimum downtime and different available data providers
4. Historical data access.
5. Ability to pull live and historical ETF and Stocks data with Ninjatrader
Which broker/data package do you suggest I select based on your experience?
