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.
6)

Its pretty much impossible to have cheap real time data because of exchange data fees. Even some historical data is required to pay exchange data fees like LME. I have not seen anything real time that is cheap, i am defining that as like $50 per month.

Do you use R in a "RealTime" setting? With IQFeed or something?

No it is not fast enough in a real time settings for my needs. I have the capability using Bloomberg plug in, or using our in house data connection. But i really only use it for modeling and prototyping.

R and Trade King


I use the TradeKing data feed with my R setup to pull intraday data. Their API as a persistent connection for streaming data as well. Like IB, just need an account. Unlike IB, their acct minimums are much smaller. Hope this helps someone.
