Searching reliable broker with low commisions

These points are so valid it pains me.



I think I will just go and buy a lifetime licence on Ninjatrader 8. I am wokring on that platform all the time, doing all my research, all my testing and statistics. Its a way of least resistance for me. I also like BookMap a lot, great idea, but I am not sure if transition to new platform would do me any good. But then, if I decide that I would like to go for lifetime licence, should I go for multibroker one? Doest it pay off? Can I upgrade it later? Maybe I should anwser this question myself and search for all terms and offers of supported brokers.



Damn, I should see a platform license as asset of my "company", not as a huge expenditure.









Anyway, I am also very happy with Degiro commisions. DAX is very cheap compared to what I have now. I will explore that broker possibilities futher.





Perhaps this is something to consider?
@Big Mike here at FIO is going to have a Trade Journal contest very soon. The prize is a free lifetime Ninjatrader license.

Actually the entire story goes like this: The Trade Journaling contest was scheduled for this month of April. It was to be a Video Trade Journal. Due to low interest @Big Mike was forced to reschedule and change the contest to the regular type of Trade Journal contest (text and screen shots perhaps some videos etc).

Here is the contest thread https://futures.io/feedback-announcements/41836-fio-video-journal-challenge-april-2017-over-2-000-prizes.html

As far as I know the contest is being rescheduled soon with the same prizes.

FWIW I like the way you have presented yourself here in your thread. You seem like a very honest and hardworking soul. If you were to start a Trade Journal here at FIO and enter this contest I would read your Journal and vote for you!

Thanks for great idea! I allready have a journal on Futures.io - https://futures.io/elite-trading-journals/41538-journal-written-knife-edge.html

I was considering making a video. I didnt know that all journals can now participate, even with no videos at all. But lets be realistic, my journal is, well, just a journal! I am writing those things to my future self - and I am doing it publicly because sometimes visiting reader might be in similar situation, or have similar experience, so we can somehow help each other.

Other people have awesome journals, very detailed and profesional things, not amaterish diary like me Realistically I cannot win, since I wouldnt vote for my journal over the profesional things myself

But thanks for awesome tip! I was not aware that my journal is suitable for competition! Thanks a lot!

There are also a few companies, where for a minimal fee, you can proof you can trade
and then you can trade their money and keep 80%

Maybe this could also be something of interest for you,
it will also force you to apply rigid risk control parameters
in order to stay in the game

The money you then need to invest is very minimal, at least to start with...

Hi Ron

Just curious - but I know only of TST with this model (and perhaps one connected to MES Capital). Do you have other names that operate under this model?

while i was still trying to find it... @Blash was faster.. as always

they are very like TST (i wonder if TST will not sue them for copycat)
they even have some of the old rules : you can only trade instruments in which you were profitable

they only started in April, so I guess their processes will not yet be so oiled,
for just a little less money, but .. we'll see if they survive

there are a few others around...

There is also Jack D. Schwager's latest project https://fundseeder.com/home

Though it is a different approach. Seems to me more legitimate perhaps????
