That would be a great time for hearing from, or about some of those live funded traders, to get some insights about what it's like to earn a living from the markets, and how the transition has affected their lives.

I hope TST will devote part of the presentation to this subject. So many of us have professional trading ambitions, towards which a well defined, attainable path has now been presented .

That's true...and I also would like to hear some good news about their efforts to get the new CQG data feed up and running with Ninja Trader,
which would be a prerequisite to start a new reliable Combine using Ninja Trader...

I just received a short update regarding the Combine start date using Ninja Trader with CQG data feed:


Quoting 
Although I can't give you a specific date just yet, we believe that we will have Ninja available by the beginning of March.

So, if I wanna go with NT, I'll have to wait patiently, month after month...

But I'm really determined to never give up on that...

Daytrader999,

Is there a reason you don't want to use NinjaTrader with ZenFire? Just curious because I am currently using NT wit CQG as well.

@ryanmcc15:

Perhaps that might be a misunderstanding, I'm actually using NT with Zen-Fire for my live account and never experienced any problems so far.

But TST never managed to set up a reliable connection between NT and Zen-Fire when it came to connect with the practice and Combine accounts, and most of the issues didn't get resolved yet.

So they started to look for another data provider and found CQG.
CQG / NT was first scheduled to go live by the end of January and is actually postponed again and announced for the beginning of March...

Excuse my ignorance and if this has already been discussed, but how will the Topstep Trader / NinjaTrader combination work when it does become an option?

- Will you need a live NinjaTrader licence (ie: not just the free version)?
- Will you need a separate data feed and TopStep will essentially be your 'broker'?

Not sure exactly how the various pieces fit together and which services you would need to pay for.

Diversification is the only free lunch

@DarkPoolTrading:

- Yes, you will need a Ninja Trader life license, the free version won't work.

- No, you can use the announced CQG data feed at (currently) no cost, and TST (Michael Patak) will be your 'broker' in that case.

If you own a NT Multibroker license you may use Zen-Fire (or any other data provider) as well to trade your (Non-TST) Live account simultaneously.

I want to thank Mike & John today from TST for their time in this webinar. We had over 450 people sign up, and almost 200 questions in the webinar - so that is why it ended up running 2.5 hours long!

I think the webinar should answer almost all questions about TST and I hope everyone benefited from it.

I'll post the recording sometime tomorrow in the usual spot.
