Futures Options


Big Mike View Post
This morning I've started my two week trial of X-Trader. I'm looking to eliminate NT entirely. For months, I've used MultiCharts to chart and NT for DOM only, but I'd like to remove NT because it still causes me problems every now and then.

My two week trial is coming from Velocity Futures. There is a thread with reviews on Velocity.

Having never used X-Trader before, there is a bit of a learning curve. But after an hour I've got the basics down and now I am just playing and trying various things so I can understand each setting. I need to read the manual still.

Here are a couple of screen shots. I will post more as I learn more.

Hi,

Is it possible to trade futures options in X-Trader?
And what about the charts? Does X-Trader allow to trade thru the charts?

Tks,

TraderFranco

Quoting 
Thanks for the heads up. For me personally, I intend to use IQFeed data still in MultiCharts. But, one day when MC has a DOM I will need TT for execution.

Mike


Do you ever have issues where the TT and IQ feeds don't match? For example, you see a potentially great entry on your chart, then go to XTrader and its off by a tick or two. I guess it wouldn't be as much of a problem if you are going off of 5-min charts.

Also, do the two data feeds clog your bandwidth? What type of internet connection do you use?

No issue. I have DSL+Cable Modem redundant + load balanced. The amount of bandwidth for a data feed monitoring a dozen instruments is tiny. Perhaps 10-15k/sec tops. Right now I have a half dozen instruments up, and it is about 3k a sec. My incoming bandwidth supports over 6,000kb a sec for comparison.

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)
Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.

I think is possible to trade options with X-Trader, and no it does not provide chart trading.

Take your Pips, go out and Live.

Mike, you are now working for a few months with X-trader, could you post some responses please :

* Is the learning curve steep ?
* Stability ? Speed ? How is the software performing ?
* Going from 1 tool (NT) that does it all, to splitting it all up in different platforms, do you feel better with that choice now ?
* Is X-trader really something reserved/made for the elite ? Do retail traders benefit it in using it ? Is it worth converting ?
* If you would had to step away from X-trader today what would you choose ? As 'second best' option ? (multicharts excluding because their DOM v1.0 is not out yet)

thanks.

I'll offer up my thoughts on TT:

* Is the learning curve steep ?
>>>> Not terribly and certainly worth it. As you can see from the screenshots, there's alot of fucntionality
* Stability ? Speed ? How is the software performing ?
>>>>> This is their calling card. TT gateways / xtrader never go down
* Going from 1 tool (NT) that does it all, to splitting it all up in different platforms, do you feel better with that choice now ?
>>>>> I haven't used NT and can't comment here
* Is X-trader really something reserved/made for the elite ? Do retail traders benefit it in using it ? Is it worth converting ?
>>>>> Xtrader is for all levels of traders. I have a full license and pay up for that. i need it for the automated tools. my wife is a part time trader and doesn't pay for her Xtrader at all. there are a few brokers out there that give it away
* If you would had to step away from X-trader today what would you choose ? As 'second best' option ? (multicharts excluding because their DOM v1.0 is not out yet)

Just a note that some brokers such as velocity bundle the x-trader fee into their commissions. For example Velocity with X-Trader is 10 cents more per roundtrip on ES than Mirus. If one thinks it's worth 10 cents then it's a good deal, because x-trader is normally $700. If you do thousands of trades then the $700 would be cheaper. But for the trader who doesn't trade a lot 10 cents isn't a bad price to pay.

If one uses velocity with x-trader at $700/month then the commissions are much cheaper. So you pay either way, the most affordable depends on your trading volume and exchanges.

i'm currently doing an x-trader demo and i'm having a hard time using it over NT cause I'm so used to NT.
