Welcome to

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.

Hi all,

I hope to forge a career in the trading industry in the future, but I worry that trading will become more and more automated, until there will be no more traders in trading: just programmers and computers! For all you seasoned veteran traders out there, is there an opposing argument?


You are right in your view,, around 99% of Futures market is automated as we speak with no human Trader at all , Stock market is not a zero sum game and as a result more difficult to tame it using close loop concept hence less algorithmic , Having said that even stock market is going that way with heuristic rules being programmed as an additional module to the rest of the code,,

I attempted to automate using Mulicharts a few months back and was just flat out horrible... Mainly because it never did good live trade.


I automated in Ninja for a bit to see if cash would match sim. Surprise surprise, it did not. The bottom line is in the fills. No matter how liberal sim is supposed to be, with price passing an entry before counting as filled, the house still won. I do have a few strats running on NT, but it's up to me to determine the market behavior, as to which strat will run.

I do not have any strategy that will run profitably in ALL markets.

Donīt be discouraged on programing trading robot. If you have a good system that works out fine for you, then go for it. One of my classmates wanted to take the fear out of his trading and he built one. He showed to our teacher whose programing help did a pretty good job. Their robot works just fine at the Emini.
Remember your system comes firts!
