Very helpful posts. I am so glad I found this thread. It seems the best tool for trading execution is X-Trader, give or take a few personal preferences. It is a shame it is not available for Spot-FX. I would like to see similar DOMs in the Spot-FX. I have absolutely no knowledge of Stellar, their web site is not very helpful with snapshots etc. I would appreciate if anyone say a bit more about them.

Stellar is a trading application for the futures market. You can find more information here:
Technology | Stellar Trading Systems | Trading Applications | Advantage Futures
Its very expensive too (like X_Trader).
An alternative front end with a nice DOM for the futures market is CTS:
CTS | Cunningham Trading Systems

Perhaps it is possible to use NinjaTrader with some FX brokers, that would be then the best choice.

Best regards,

Malvolio

Malvolio do you use Cunningham?
Don't they have 10k minimum account size and no day margins?
Because they are not a Broker/Dealer just a clearing firm?
Thanks

XTrader over Cell

for anyone interested, XTrader over Cellular network wont work as a backup/DR service at all... I have spent now 2 days working with the vendor to see if it could.. and nothing... thus far using TT API will, but it times out quite a lot... using the XTrader app itself, no chance to get it working..

I love Stellar. It's way faster than TT (I was a heavy happy user of TT) in usage, comfort and further issues. I used it for 1 1/2 years. Perfect game. The problem, I moved to automatic execution with Multicharts without API through TT Pro. The Stellar API is not open ;O(.

By the way, is there any possibility to get TT-FIX simulation to make a serious comparison between own order execution development MC(wo/API)-TTPro and MC-TTFix ?

Regards.

Try organizing a contest between the two and see what's happens: who declines to partecipate maybe it's the loser

You can get tt fix demo through their demo support website. I have used it but my partner does and has for years with no complaints.

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)
