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.

I do not know about signal, but I ve been using NT for 6 months. I am very happy with it. Being able to trade while testing another strategies (on simulating module) is crucial. The NT support is very effective, and this is also important .

Torn between ESignal and NT


I have been using eSignal now for about 6 months and I think it is great and easy to use, but it has it's limitations. for example it slows down and freezes when I try to set up ES and CL on a renko chart.

I have been told great things about NT and just finished a trial which i started to check out an indicator package.

Has anyone used both? Is NT that much better?

I use both and like both. Each has good abilities to explore. I mostly just use eSignal as my data feed but do have some active layouts in use as well. Many users like eSignal for its general trading universe.

It entirely depends on what you want to do. NT is much more open for customisation, 3rd party add-ons and own-development, but you would need to do your own exploring. I like eSignal (it is essential for the feeds I use) but I love NT7. Horses for courses and we are all different. Just have a play in the sandpit, NT is free to explore but is a large universe too.

One major caveat regarding intraday cash indexes (e.g Dow, Dax) - you can only use NT7 with the eSignal 10.6 Data Manager and NT8 only with the 12.X Data Manager. (12.X will work with either DM.) Not an issue for futures, although there may be better feeds if you were only futures and wanted to switch to just NT.

Cheers

Travel Well
