Live Trading of Micro's

Instead of signing up for the CME competition I decided to participate in the futures.io journal challenge and to trade the MES (ES Micros) with a live account and journal every trade. This has been working really well and gives me a sense of how my strategy is working and as it is a live account it means allot more to me than a trade in a sim account. After identifying and live testing a successful trading strategy on the Micros I will move to the full ES contract...with the experience and confidence that trading live brings. Here is the link to the futures.io journal challenge https://futures.io/feedback-announcements/47064-fio-journal-challenge-july-2019-edition-w-ninjatrader-2.html#post721484

Rather than ask us to run compatibility software such as 'Wine' to enable the Imac user to utilise Ninjatrader, could you not build an Imac specific Ninjatrader platform?

According to Microsoft, Microsoft .NET also runs on Linux and MacOS.

Dot net Core runs on mac and Linux. Dot net FRAMEWORK, on which ninjatrader is built, does not.

They could get there faster with Avalonia .NET UI framework which supports WPF and SharpDX. https://avaloniaui.net/

Aside from that, the task of porting over a large and complex program to an entirely different operating system would be something of a nightmare, even if you could throw a load of programmers at it, and if you were willing to spend a lot of time on it. (What is a "lot"? It took NT several years to get NT8 running well on Windows, in the upgrade from NT7. Porting to an entirely new environment would be a huge job.)

For a task this large, there would have to be a very large financial incentive to go to the Mac, one that would more profitable than just letting Mac users run NT using one of the usual ways to run a Windows program on the Mac. Not a decision I would make.

I don't speak for NT, of course. I'm just a guy typing on a web forum.

I don't think you're going to see this conversion, though. That's a pity, because being able to run something as native code on any machine just by recompiling has long been a sought-for goal, but one that isn't here yet.

Bob.

It's really straightforward IMO: if you want to run trading software, you must run Windows. Bottom line. I don't like it either.. I ran Sierra Chart in a VM for some time on my linux machine, and eventually got tired of the limitations inherent with that, and just set up two machines, one Windows for trading only, and my work/everything workstation running Linux. Throw in my work MBP and I'm running all 3 major OSes most every day

Porting anything that is so heavily UI-centric like trading software is not really so much a port as a total rewrite. Native applications are themselves a bit of a dying breed--the web (and mobile, by extension) became the new platform of choice for modern applications several years ago. Just look at the new TT web -- TT took on a multi year project to rebirth X Trader as a web platform.

As of this moment, the leaderboard says there are 1,416 participants.

Here is the leader board after the first 20 minutes:

Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).



What caught my attention is that right out the gate is appears that most traders are wrong in their trades. Only 12 of 47 traders are profitable out the gate. That is about 25%.

Let's see how things change over the next 5 days.

My goal is to be in the top 50.

where can we find this data?

thank you for your time
