Hi,

How long did it take you to become profitable after taking John's course? Did you take just the basic course or intermediate course/webinar? I'm currently picking out a course to study.

If you want to learn to scalp you should plan on taking the entire course including the live webinars. You need to put in a lot of screen time and use market replay. I think it probably took me longer than most of his students to develop an intuition for the setups - over a year at least. Also, I've programmed my own scalping strategy and use the DOM with it. Everyone is going to develop their own method eventually. Just be prepared to spend a lot of time on it.

Looking at the screenshot of the trades of that guy, time in does say 0 time but if you look at the entry and exit times, you can see the trade took 1 second.
It's very easy to have 1 second trades and even less than that.
Just set a strategy for 1 tick stop and 1 tick target. I guarantee most trades in CL, NQ, or any other fast pace market will be in fact less than 1 second.
You can open a position and 5 milliseconds later you're out.

Have you ever tried this? The question is not if it is possible for someone with the right infrastructure but for a retail guy with Daytradr and get a positive result. And itīs not.
When you look at the leaderboard, almost all the guys donīt count for commissions...
They donīt really trade.
Since several years I am with Jigsaw. And even with them SIM is SIM and reality is reality.

I did not say it's a valid strategy.
I said it's possible to have 1 sec trades and even less than 1 second.

Within Journalytix you can set the commissions you pay per side, per lot.
This allows you to have the exact net pnl of your trades and see if your strategy is in fact valid under a live market or not.
If the people that are on the leaderboard use the tools available on Journalytix or not... well, they are free to use what they want. The tools are there...

If I become half a percent smarter each year, I'll be a genius by the time I die

This is all easily explained by the fact that it’s a demo account, fills are not real.

how to get to work with ninja 8 and kinetick data feed

Is there somewhere that gives instructions on how to setup and use Jigsaw with Ninjatrader 8?

Do I add it as an indicator to a chart?

What timeframe would I use?

I have the lifetime license for ninjatrader 8 and have an account with Interactive brokers from which I can trade live from my Ninja charts, can this be done with Jigsaw?


My data is from Kinetick live.


Please help because I just finished module 1 and would like to start watching the Jigsaw DOM live as suggested in module 2.


Thank you
