I did in the past but I do not trade Forex anymore, it works fine assuming you know NT well and its limitations. Just make sure you chose a good Forex broker and you will be alright.

Ah I see, then if NT are the broker as well it should be alright I guess, as you are dealing direct with NT and not a third part broker. But if you have doubts why not to trade currency futures and/or the micro currency futures? Do you want to trade the crosses as well?

Been using NT Brokerage for FX back when they used FXMC and now as they use FOREX.COM. I think it's better now that they use FOREX.COM.

They are not a broker in and of themselves.

One thing I don't like about FOREX.COM data (which I just learned last night and today) is the feed does not offer Net Change info. For example the percent change of a pair from yesterday. I view all the pairs and futures I watch in a Market Analyzer and have it auto sort based on percent change. All of 2017 I used IQFEED FX data even though I had free data from NT broker. Here in 2018 I end my IQFEED FX data to save $20/mo but now I see this issue. Will have do a little coding to make my own Net Change.

It is an axiomatic fact that while you meditate you are speaking with your own spirit. In that state of mind you put certain questions to your spirit and the spirit answers: the light breaks forth and the reality is revealed.

Thanks Ron,I think th feeds will vary because of the way liquidity is provided.Im a newbie to forex.Are using NT7 or NT8? I asked another question, on the forum.Im looking for a session template.My pivot and swap levels are off.I tried using 24/7 and 24/5.Im using NT7.Another trader mentioned setting session from 5am to 4:59 am.Basically 24 hours.Im not sure how vwap works with forex yet, but i know the start time will change it
thanks, Bob

@bobarian VWAP will not work with FOREX remember there is no volume with FOREX however you can use TWAP - Time Weighted Average Price, the calculation is different than VWAP but it works in a similar way it takes the length of the bars or candles into account and not volume, I did use TWAP it in the past.

I saw on your journal that you are using @Fat Tails studies you should definitely talk to him, he have done some coding for me back in the days when I was trading FOREX, he will be able to help you out.
