Hi Zen,
I wasn't having a crack at you, I just consider charting to be no better than random entries, more often than not people just see what they want to see..

Cheers John

Johno, there was a guy who lived up in far north QLD that used to trade similar to you....google 'Bulls and Bears' on Youtube....they called him Rambo on the floor of the SFE. Had a mate that used to go golfing with him, he just had the market in his head...

Millionaire several times over...ex Chicago pit trader. Maybe @tigertrader knows him....

knew who you were talking about right away...john used to clear through eagle, which was originally goodman/manaster, which was owned by my friend ronny manaster. ron was an heir to the david berg hot dog fortune. ronny even had a gold replica of a hot dog on his desk. moultan used to take home very large positions and when asked if he was long or short something, would say that not only is he long, but so was ronny and the clearing firm. ronny and him would get into "discussions" about john's large positions, and i can still remember john defending himself to ronny about an untenable large position one day after the close. they were going back and forth, and john hilariously countered, that that unlike ronny, he wasn't born with a golden hot dog up his ass, and had to trade big and take risk. last time i saw moultan was at my friend scotty's wedding- we were all dressed to the nines(of course) and john showed up in sweat pants and a t-shirt.

Lol...what a character he must have been..Rambo

I heard he emptied his MF Global account just days before they announced their troubles...several million, he'd gotten a little whisper that something wasn't right.

It's difficult for me to post YouTube links, but I highly recommend that video documentary, Bull and Bears....very enjoyable.

Hi xiaosi,
That is an excellent observation, you are the first person to ever make the connection. I adopted a similar style after watching John Moultan trading on the SFE back in the 90s. In those days I would trade the SPI futures and write options on them as well as the FTSE100. The trading world is a very different one to how it was back then. One thing that hasn't changed is the volitility, you have got to love the opportunity.lol
Cheers John

TS to Ninja for SPI

Hello - Im an ES trader looking to diversify by daytrading SPI/mini (e.g. APH16). I currently use TS but since they don't support this contract, I was looking at Kinetick with Ninja.

I've emailed them to get a total monthly cost since I only need these 2 instruments but wonder if anyone has experience with this or similar NT providers.

Are Kinetick brokers also, allowing me to trade 'off the charts' or am I better off using another broker who supplies NT and a RTfeed? Any ideas?

Also, do volumes support daytrading IYO - it seems to be around 50K contracts/day at the moment - no competitor to ES for UK/US zone but comparable to ES in Asian session.

Sorry for all the questions but wd be appreciative for any answers/opinions - keen to link up to the local futures trading community.

Cheers
Paul

SPI on NT

Hi Paul,

You could go with IB (Interactive Brokers) who do connect to NinjaTrader.
Their rates are reasonable, but no tick data available.
If you trade minute charts, then this should affect you.

Cheers,
Cow.

Market profile charts on the SPI

Hi All

I'm a long time trader on the SPI and was looking at trying to get market profile, volume profile and footprint charts on the SPI

At the moment thinking of using esignal for the data feed and sierra charts to draw

Does anyone else here have any experience in using other programs like say market delta or ninja trader to trade the SPI and use studies like the ones I mentioned above?

Cheers

Try CQG with Sierra. Why pay such an expansive feed like eSignal?

Market profile, vol profile, footprints, VWAP + bands etc are easiest to configure in Sierra chart.

You should ask Sierra chart when they are going to start supporting ASX data through their native data feed....
