hi forgiven

Not sure if you're aware of this thread which sounds similar, but to answer your query,

I haven't bought an awful lot of material but the 2 things I value the most are
  • Peter Davies' Jigsaw product. Here's why
  • Trading in the Zone book by Mark Douglas... I can't find anymore where I explained why but, in essence, this book for me is 20% about trading and 80% about psychology and NLP, and it frames some of the mental loops and biases most of us are enslaved to. A great reminder that life does not have to be a certain way.

LOST a shit ton of money and got ridiculed to the point of considering killing a few guys. Studied errors as if my life depended on it. Made authentic friends with guys that could teach me. Listened to what they said, watched what they did. Was honest with myself. Repeat.

No product, no "system", no magic indicator ever even contributed outside of that series listed above.

A guitar and a subscription to Artistworks.

Joking aside, these are things that are intended to keep me away from my trading pc which has the following benefits:
  1. Trades are given more time to work;
  2. I don't get scared out of positions that go temporarily against me;
  3. Not watching positions all the time lessens stress;
  4. Most importantly - the wife thinks it's hot that I can play Sweet Child o' Mine (warts and all)...

A move from Ninja to Sierra. Best move ever !

Ninja is free, thats what hooked me for 3-4 years, but i was also hooked on the expensive kinetick feed.

Moved to Sierra 4 months ago,
Sierra with the Sierra Feed (Barchart) (for eurostoxx identical to Rithmic) together with Gomicators the best of the best, and i pay less than before with kinetick.

Best things I have for trading :

- Jigsaw (for its audio alerts, not sure I could trade without them now)
- 34" LG ultrawide monitor (not my only monitor but as a main monitor hard to beat)
- Sierra Chart (I have cheated on her a few times but always come back)
- Standing desk (saved my back)

Because I like to be very mobile but with the same screens, my 3 x Asus MB168B+ 1080p USB powered displays. I just ordered four of the newer IPS model.

-Armodafinil
-Sierra Chart ( Tried an arsenal of platforms, started out on NT back when I was basically still a kid, 08-09ish)
-Paying Devs to code various different "products" for my personal use was the best money ever spent.

Another vote for Jigsaw trading tools. I find the DOM showing pulling/stacking orders to be very useful in my trading.
I have to mention as a close second Acme analytics "Rancho Dinero". I use many of the tools in the Rancho Dinero suite.
