Best Broker for AU with Ninjatrader?

Hi,

Trading ES mainly, during US session and need access to good volume / Tick data and able to run footprint charts.

I'm in the market for a new broker after switching platforms to Ninjatrader. Have a live account with TS but would prefer a option that would allow me to do everything from the NT platform.

Ideally, I would like a broker who provides data at the reduced rates for customers, reasonable commissions, has segregated customer funds and/or customer funds kept outside the US banking system. It would be a added bonus if somehow any funds got covered under the Aust deposit insurance scheme or any deposit insurance where ever the funds are held but not even sure that is a option with trading funds.

Have just had the run around with a certain company that everyone at futures.io (formerly BMT) knows but I will leave unmentioned as I don't feel like getting threatened with a summons to fight trumped up allegations in a US court. Now a bit jaded about the whole process and available options of brokers for AU. I have had a look through the old threads and any options for the AU are from posts years old.


Are there any members who can point me in the right direction for a broker friendly to AU customers, with good data included and the broker is still supported for new customers with the changes to the NT supported broker list?

Or should I just buy a data feed for NT and execute from the TS platform?

Is there a reliable way to use TS linked into NT and take the data I need from TS and still execute trades with all the functionality of NT through the TS account?



Thanks

Hi silverfut,

If i am not wrong CQG has data centers in australia. cant remeber where i read it. check cqg for more info.
ninjatrder uses continuum, its rebranded CQG. but check with the broker if the clearing firm the broker uses has the infrstucture in place for australia.

My 2cents

Thanks, Yes you are right. I have talked to NT broker about this and it looks like the direction I will take. Will start out with a small account and see how it goes.
Just wanted to see what other options any traders in AU are using also.

I used NT brokerage with NT when I was living on the Sunny Coast and had no issues.
Good competitive rates and makes sense to couple brokerage with the platform.
Moved to Panama a month or so ago though.
Let me know if you have any questions or require any help setting up.
There's a forum member (blueroo) who also trades from brisbane and might be worth chatting too also.

Sorry for long delay in reply. Computer had a fit and needed HDD and RAM replaced so have been away for a bit.

Thanks for the advice mate, helps a lot! Good to hear personal experience from someone who has used from close by.
NT Brokerage will be the way I go it looks like. Have had some good help already from their customer service.

This is exactly the thread I've been looking for for a while.

It's tough trading out here in Australia, I'd much prefer to be back home in London in the pouring rain where there is a vast choice of brokers and data vendors... naat!

My question is whether orders are routed to NT in the US before they are routed onto their appropriate exchange or whether CQG/Continuum sends them directly from the exchange in Sydney? The reason I ask this is that I trade off the DOM and am experiencing massive latency with ping speeds (250 on average) and I trade Eurex. Therefore I was wanting to find out whether my trades would be directly routed to Eurex in Frankfurt from Sydney rather than travelling through the US.

Thanks
