Proposal for NinjaTrader vetted vendors

@NinjaTrader

Plain and simple, and I think this would damn near solve all the fraud that is out there.

1) Require all NT partners to have a valid 'contact' page with their full legal name and a phone number. You can easily verify this by requiring them to provide a government issued ID and by calling the number.

2) Require all NT partners to make their whois records for their website public and not hidden by a proxy. This way you can easily see the owner of the domain.

These two things should pretty much overnight eliminate all the crap that is out there. The people that perpetrate the fraud are doing so because they are completely anonymous. This eliminates that.

Legit business owners should have zero issues complying with this and I would imagine would completely support and embrace this, to help distinguish them and eliminate all the unsavory characters out there.

Thoughts?

Mike

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)

Great Call Big Mike


Totally agree with you and your proposal.

The trading world will be a much better place well in fact around futures.io (formerly BMT) and Ninja Trader if we get to have properly verified Vendors.

Why should Vendors be worried if they are Honest and believe in their product.


Thank you

Sharmas

Mike,

NinjaTrader is constantly evolving our Ecosystem program and participation requirements as previously posted. Your post is timely in that we just discussed with a large number of partners this past week our pending plans to completely revamp our program in 2016 which includes the website, partner entrance and maintenance requirements and a potential rating system. We will take into account your suggestions as we proceed with that project.

Thanks for your post.

I am all for honesty from vendors.

I am just curious, but does the ecosystem really drive a lot of traffic to vendors?

Nearly zero. There was a time than automatically ninja trader gave the lead mail to the partner as well. I got nearly 700 mails. When the ecosystem method appeared you get zip.

Is all about then now. You only get one license and maybe the possibility of give a seminar, that again gives you zero. They don't share the mails with you
