Question for Big Mike

Hi Big Mike,

I know you are using / exploring both Multicharts and Investor RT for your charting currently. You are probably trying to stay as objective as possible, nevertheless I will ask anyway: which one do you actually prefer?
I am using the Updata's ProTrader as my main charting / analytical application and look to add either Multicharts or Investor RT to it for analysis of which ProTrader is not capable of (like CD). I have been using Investor RT for years, but recently tried Multicharts and it has its advantages.
So that what is you experience so far?

Thanks in advance

Rani

P.S. Opinions of others are appreciated as well.

For my own trading style, I use MultiCharts. Investor/RT has a lot of features no other platform has, but I have no time at present to learn anything new, maybe in a few months. MultiCharts does everything I want, and it does it quick, stable, with no complaints.

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.

Correct, MultiCharts has no sim. I trade cash, the days of trading sim are far behind me.

One more question for you Mike... when do you actually find the time to trade.. I mean considering you are so busy these days around futures.io (formerly BMT) how do you even find the time to pull the trigger or its all automated.... or you even trade at all.... just wanna know cause im curious how you do it....

If I were you I wouldnt be able to pull all this off....from now on im not gonna use the word possible im just gonna replace it with "Every thing is Mike(possible)"

Cheers

Bugs

I often trade late at night or early in the morning. My trading usually only takes 1-2 hours.

That post has been deleted as spam, so there is no appropriate place any longer as it was just an advertisement.

If you want to start a new thread about a Vendor, you would go to the Vendor section and click "new thread". You can use all the other threads in the Vendor section as an example of an appropriate template for the thread title.
