We have gone back and forth with you over the years and you just canít help yourself but insult, be abusive and state opinions as facts on things you have no clue about. Any business decision I make is for the greater good of all stakeholders of NinjaTrader, owners, customers and partners alike. You loudly state your displeasure for how I run my business. Frankly, I donít know why you continue to stick around using NinjaTrader while constantly making derogatory comments.

I don't think people will fault me for saying, why donít you just go use something else?

I gree, the greater good Like not having a people buy your product. Every time I deal with Ninja it is - painfull. SERIOUSLY painfull.

Interactive Brokers API is very well documented and supported by Ninjatrader.

So if someone had the technical know-how and desire they could write a IB API <-> InsertYourBroker API translator.

i am a customer of deepdiscounttrading.

howard lender is the most pleasant, most responsive and most experienced representative i ever had to deal with. howard answers my emails 16 hours around the clock within 10 minutes on average.
he is a trader himself using sierracharts.his commissions are hard to beat, everything is posted at his website meticulously.
the tt feed is the same as any other feed, for me there is no difference except for some limitations like no account information or wrong information when you take an overnight position. you will get exact information about those limitations. you will be told explicitly before you start using it.
the clearing company crossland seems to be solid, not involved in any european debt which is enough these days...

what is more important: crossland supports ach, meaning you can transfer your money out for free.
this was one of the criteria why i chose deepdiscounttrading. other brokers make you pay for your money. lets take a realistic assuption that you make 1000 bucks a month in trading. most brokers will punish you with a 3% charge for just transferrring YOUR OWN hard earned money to your own account where you can use it elsewhere.

howard has no other fees either, no silly overnight fees or inactivity fees.

most brokers hide their commissions. i do not like that at all.
howard on the other hand publishes all of his commissions on his website. it looks like self-written but it gives all information you need.
es roundturn all in with ninjatrader is 3.62
this is even cheaper than ampfutures at 3.82. amp does not publish their rates and amp does not do ach out.

deepdiscounttrading is cheap and good. i like this combination

Hoping to try to open an account with Howard if I can find a cost free work-around on the TT data feed lack of historical data issue on NT.

Does anyone know if its possible if you have two active future's account with one data feed with historical data on NT and TT (without), if they can work with one another to make up for the TT's shortcomings in this area?

Thanks!

Yes this will work however you would need to purchase a multi-broker edition of NinjaTrader. Alternatively, you can use the standard edition and subscribe to Kinetick.

Deep Discount Trading experience

This thread seems a bit old, but are current clients of Deep Discount Trading still happy with their decision? From the older posts, it seems like there were several impressed with Howard and his service. Just wanting to know if this is still the case. I am considering them since I am scalping the ES.

Also, if anyone that is using them does reply to this, which data feed are you using? I tried TT with another broker and compared it to Transact, and Transact seemed to do a better job. I emailed Howard about this and he told me that their TT infrastructure is state of the art, and runs at max. performance. Just wondering what real users are saying.

Thanks for the help.

I'd be interested in that info also. Since PFG, I try to keep tabs on all the brokers.

I'm just a simple man trading a simple plan.

Hi Bowie,

I am just a very small trader. I have traded ES, YM, TF, NQ thru DDT. Although my contract size is small, I have been very pleased with the fills. I am using TT feed with Sierra Charts. No problems thus far. I have a very small AMP account and use that for NT charts with the standard CQG feed.

Better yet, I have been even more pleased with Howard Lender When I have asked questions that Howard was not sure of he dug into it and got back to me later, not much later, but promptly later. Howard is extremely nice to deal with. He is TRUSTWORTHY! He has never misled me intentionally. I note that because, there are sometimes changes made that any broker does not know of...lots happens fast these days. Any misinformation is just that, not deception. Howard is an exceptional guy in this climate of greed and deception.

The RANWEB account portal updates all CME CBOT trades nearly instantly in your account. ICE trades are delayed by about 20-30 min. That is my only gripe and Howard has nothing to do with this. It is just a RANWEB issue with ICE updates.

As a note on Howard's helpfulness, I inquired about the possibility of MT4 becoming a platform for futures trading because I am a MAX TRADING SYSTEM enthusiast. That question was asked early this year and never discussed again. Upon Howard's looking into something else for me a couple months ago he noted parenthetically in an email reply: "(The Clearing Firm said that they will consider the MT4 platform in the near future)". In my book this is a real heads up thing. Howard cares and aims to help you succeed. My best experience over the years hands down.

Chuck,

Thank you for this very prompt and thorough reply. Sounds like I need to give Howard a call. If you can get the MT4 futures trading thing pushed through, that would be quite an accomplishment but I would bet the charting and data lobby with fight that one. :-} I also use the MAX system for forex.

Thanks again.

Bowie
