Thank you Josh. Really.

Tell me more about Sierra, why is it so much better for you?

I used NT, and I have only momentarily tried MC. There is a thread in the SC subforum here that I started that has quite a few reasons why I find it better. But my post was meant slightly in jest, as I do not care to sway anyone from something they like. But as you said, had NT not given you problems, you would not have seen what else is out there. I decided to try multicharts, Sierra, T4, XTrader, and also had previously used IRT. Each has its own way of doing things, and most important is that we are comfortable with what we are using, as long as it suits our needs.

I have not traded it in a few weeks. Oil has been treating me wonderfully.

Not a problem with Sierra. I do it daily. You simply maintain multiple "instances" (installations) of Sierra. I have my primary Sierra Chart instance for all my charting (DTN IQFeed). Then other instances of Sierra are DOM-only, and they are for execution. Each of those goes to one broker. You can even power those DOM's using other data from another instance.

No trading today. We decided to take the day off and lock in our solid month, given how light the trading has been and such.

Looks like if you got the structure right (range bound) that one could have KILLED it today trading the range. Thirteen winners and one loser. Wow.

Feels great to get off to a solid start. We're already having current clients refer us to others. It's such an easier meeting when you get tee'd up like that.

Although past performance is not indicative of future performance, I thought some of you might like to know that we made +2.4% for October, net of all fees and commissions.

We couldn't be more excited. Thanks again for all your support futures.io (formerly BMT). I went from not knowing another trader, to developing some real friendships and many trading acquaintances.

@indextrader7,

Can you educate me what are the typical fees for a CTA like yours?
