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.

In Ninja you can configure yourself how optimistic or pessimistic fills should be on your Sim. If I select a more pessimistic approach, I usually get better fills on Live account than on Sim, and that is not exaggereation.

What settings do you recommend or use for SIM in Ninja?

(I did not want to put this in the "wrong" thread or just send a PM...)

The problem with trading is one needs to be right twice!

Real trade fills will very much depend on :
- instrument you trade and size you are trading
- moment of the day you trade (with news, without news)
- type of trading, if you are momentum trading, fills will be affected

So there is not generic one fits all question..

If you test a system and it works with pessimistic fills, chances are bigger
that it will also work in live.

In other words, if it does not work in live, most likely it will not be the
fills that kills it.
