Testing a continuation pattern. This could run 10 ticks.

I made the switch over to the T4 platform today. I will be using Ninja for the Charting and the T4 or Sierra to enter the trades. As soon as I get comfortable with the setup I will be starting my combine.

This my new setup. A chart and a trading DOM. Tested out the OCO orders today. Placing orders on the DOM will take some getting used too. The one thing I am going to miss is having the trades displayed on the chart. But.. it is what it is.

UB morning
+468.75

This was the first day with the DOM. I took it slow and worked my way up to 4 contracts. Three winners and zero losers.

The one thing I miss is the ATM strategies and being able to see the trades on the chart. The flip side of that is I spent more time watching the DOM today. This is probably a good thing.

I have pretty much decided I will be trading one of the bond futures. ZB or UB. These fit my trading personality quite nicely. Couple more days of practice before heading to the combine.

I think that could be a good idea Robert, and perhaps I will give it a try too since in the TST webinar yesterday no fixed start date for NT has been mentioned...

So, to get the trades on your NT Chart, maybe you can try to take the same Trades in SIM simultaneously...?

@Daytrader999,

Thought about that but decided against it.. There would be to much going on and would be more chances for mistakes. Just going to keep it simple. I will learn to trade without it.
