Good day. I'm a daytrader since a year now and I would like to begin with automated trading with NinjaTrader to get a full time job during my computer does the trades.......

Is someone could help me to setup my computer to start automated trading soon? Someone who could suggest me nice ATM templates and setup interfaces needed to be functional. I would like to trade 3x ETF's and stocks.

Really. You are asking if somebody has a nice profitable, fully automated, safe, stable trading system they can give you, and then set up for you so you can just leave it switched on at home, in charge of your account, printing money for you while you go out to work? Not meant unkindly but I think you might have slightly unrealistic expectations.

for sure.

I kind of think the better question would be something along the lines of...where can I get started in developing my own automated systems.

The answer to this is learn to write code. Focus on python, then in the future plan to build your own rudimentary platform. There's a lot of open source options available. But you hafta learn to write code first.

Or start w learning C# and .NET and use NinjaScript in NT. But I think rolling your own is the overall better solution, even tho more cumbersome.

I would have to agree with the previous responses. Good luck with that. Every trader I respect cautions against trading these leveraged funds.

First of all do not use Ninja Trader for automated trading, I wouldn't trust the integrity of the platform, and the back testing results and data is some of the worst I have ever seen. There is only one existing platform designed and capable of handling back/forward testing, accurate tick and fill data in sim and real mode it's TradeStation. NT is great for discretionary trading small retail accounts and to learn how to trade. If you want a professional platform for scalping go with Infinity Futures. Secondly; even the best automated systems available require someone to sit in front of the screen while a strategy is enabled. There is no turning on and walk away, and let it trade. you will most likely lose all of your capital very quickly, you will also have to adjust inputs/settings weekly to adjust to current market conditions. That's just the beginning, if I haven't deterred you enough yet then you are truly committed or should be 😏 Automated trading is viable but not without significant work and effort start trading on your own and then slowly learn and study automated systems and you might be able to get something started but you want to commit around $10k for every contract you are trading per instrument as you will drawdown almost daily the key is not to be profitable every day but end the week in profit net after slippage and commission. Hope this helps and good luck
