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.

I don't use Linux, but I did a quick search and found this.

You could also do a search on the NinjaTrader Support Forum. I'm sure there is some good info there.

Hi !

I am working on Lubuntu OS and didn't be able to work on ThinkorSwim. The platform doesn't start successfully. I'm stuck at the software update.

So I use VirtualBox to start an W7 OS inside linux and to be able to use ThinkorSwim.
