Nothing drastic today guys, my previous post may have been misleading. We still made money today (miraculously despite the conditions).

I had NT mess up with an ATM. I was in a trade, and up considerably. I tried to drag an order on the chart to take some profits. Things went haywire. Nt tried to send 1300 orders in a matter of minutes. My broker saw this happening, and as I was scrambling to get the software to respond, they closed out my order (a few minutes cost me nearly 1% of p/l) for a small loss instead of a considerable gain. A horrendous fill at that.

I won't tolerate that kind of instability. NT is taking this to the development team as they haven't seen this issue before. My ATM is super simple, 1 stop and 2 targets, no trails or moves to BE. I do it manually.

I may be done with them regardless of their reason for the mishap.

My broker is setting me up with Rithmic this afternoon. I'll check into it, and others. What a day. At least we had a massive winner late morning that made up for it.

Hey man really sorry to hear about your problems today but glad you got it sorted and ended the day profitable. Would love to see some charts of this week if you get a chance at anytime but sure you're pretty busy at the moment.

Glad to hear everything's still going well with the CTA if I had the money I would be writing you a cheque right about now!

To be up 1% net this week feels great. There were some real bumps in the road, and I stayed the course. I was rattled at times, but we're positive on the week and glad to have it behind me.

Overall, I took too many trades and paid too much commissions. The goal continues to be to increase trade selectivity, and let winners run longer.

Here's a few heartbreak trades today where I took profits too soon. Could have been up BIG today. We'll be back to fight again on Monday!

Other than the 2nd trade, where I chased price a bit (looking for a breakout), today was flawless trading.

great journal, quite similar to my own trading style.
yes, also had issues with NT on 'phantom orders'...but that was 3 years ago. was also being given the old run-around of 'talking to development team'. been on sierrachart since, with zero issues - use broker dom (transact) separately
