recording ones Futures trades ?

Hello futures.io (formerly BMT) community,

As I plan to transition from part time to full time trading, I'm looking for a service/website for recording my performance.

Some of you may be aware of myfxbook.com which is able to connect to Metatrader 4 and Oanda, as far as I know, but not to the common trading platforms for futures such as Ninjatrader etc.

Since I trade both spot forex and futures, I wonder whether a similar service for futures traders exists as well.

You can obviously trade futures through MT4 now with some brokers, but as good as MT4 is for charting, I would not want to use it for executing my trades.

I tried to find something like that, but didn't find anything.
An idea, for NinjaTrader, is to write a strategy which will read the NT database (or checking the orders in real-time, all is possible), and push this on a website. I've started something like this, but did not finish it.

Profit.ly - Trader And Investor Profits And Losses might work, depending on what broker you use. They seem to support IB and TOS for futures. Not sure if they support other futures brokers or not.

Collective2 might also be an option. They appear to support ninjatrader and several other brokers and platforms:

Some other futures brokers are supported by Profit.ly.
But for "automatic" filling of your trade log ("broker connect"), you have to send your broker connection credentials !!!
These guys are maybe honest, but who is crazy enough to send his credentials like that ?

If you don't want to trust in Profit.ly's security I believe you can let profit.ly download your trade records, then immediately change your login credentials to something else. This way you can display your past trades but only have to trust the site with your login info for a short time.

This would clearly be an option, imho. I'll shoot them an email. Thanks again GoldStandard.

@TheSeeker, any relation to "The Seeker" from Legend of the Seeker TV show and books?

Mike

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.
