Hi Hunter,

If you don't mind answering, i'd like to know what kind of problems you had and what kind of things you did or what you became aware of that helped in coming to the conclusion(s) that helped you "turn the corner."

I would say the biggest key was self awareness. Knowing when I am in rapport with myself so that I can trust my intuition.
I think Jack Swagger talks about this in one of his lectures where he list the common traits among pros. He says that good trading needs to be effortless. I think this is what he talking about, how we need to be in flow.

AHHH

LOL,

I just blew out my daily max loss on one trade in my FTP that I thought I was taking on my live account...
This is a little frustrating.

I really wanted to do this thing.
If anyone knows where I can buy a tool for NT that will replicate my trades and my management across accounts but in different lot sizes, let me know and I will do this again..

Or if someone wants to build it I will pay them. I need it anyways.

Sorry for the fail everyone. Will make another go at it eventually...

A simpler thing that is presently available would be to use one of many indicators that put custom text on a chart, and just identify which account you are going to be trading in.

For example, here are two charts, one for each of two accounts. You will have to manually set the text to identify the account, but once you do so, you aren't likely to be confused about which account you are trading (I'm assuming you would use Chart Trader.) The caption can be located on any of the 4 corners, or in the middle.

These charts use Chart Identifier (NT7 only), which is available in the Downloads section:

This is Elite-only, but the one-time Elite fee is pretty cheap, if only for the access to the Elite threads, where most of the posting is done anyway.

Thanks Bob, but my issue is that I do not want to have to manage trades in more than one account.
Doing these combines takes away from my live trading. If I can get a tool then it will solve the issue of the time investment for this demo because I can just trade my account and have the combine duplicate my trades and management with different lot sizes. There has to be something like this out there.

If not I will try and contract someone to make it.

Hunter, bad luck today.

I looked in this before but did not continue with NT, I have my own ordering system now. I remembered this:

Simultaneous Multi-Account Trading - NinjaTrader Support Forum

One needs to think through carefully how to manage slightly different fills etc. (clearly mark charts also, I've mixed them up before) but many ways to skin that cat.

The Account Groups solution is only available in NT7. They dropped it from NT8 due to lack of use.

There is limited replication functionality in NinjaTrader 7. NinjaTrader 8 does not support this.

Relevant Help Guide information here - Account Groups

Bummer, in my opinion, but my opinion isn't what they go by.

Bob.

I think that rule disappeared. If it does exis the month is probably almost over so he would likely have to pay for a new months subscription before he meets the combine goals again anyway. Forgive me if im wrong.

Thanks Rory,
I am looking for an experience though where I can just trade one DOM and have it mirrored in other accounts completely, just with different quantities. This needs to be moving stops and targets too, not just the entries.
