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) Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.

He makes some strange conclusions though. He eliminates both Investor R/T and Sierra Charts in the first video, apparently because they don't have a large user base. Both of them updates their program quite frequently, while e.g. NT uses a couple of years. Sure NT has a wide variety of useless 3rd party add-ons, but I don't see how that helps? They also have a large user base, but most of them are free users.
He mentions CQG in the data section, but not the IC when it comes to trading platform. I find that strange, since it's arguably the best charting platform within a retail traders reach.
Yes, user base is important. But with regard to further development, the cash flow is more important. If a company has a smaller user base, but higher cash flow, that would normally equate to better service and more frequent updates.
As far as CQG goes, it has both an extensive user base and with an average of $1000+ per user, the cash flow should be sufficient too.
I thought the videos were quite good. I just had an issue with the elimination of IRT and SC. I can forgive him for not mentioning CQG, it is probably priced too high for the average trader. But you have to pay for quality...
