I just purchased Jigsaw a few days ago and installed version 5.3f. I can get Auction Vista working but I was wondering if it's possible to change the timezone setting on the x-axis to my local time. I cannot see where to do that on indicator settings or even on the setup icon (wrench) on the jigsaw DOM box.
It is my pleasure to welcome back Peter Davies from Jigsaw Trading on Monday, September 26th @ 4:30PM Eastern US.
This webinar takes a look at the Jigsaw Tools in a stand alone environment. Historically, the Jigsaw tools have been plug-ins for existing trading platforms. Now it is being transitioned to a stand alone platform. In effect, the goal is to plug gaps that traditional charting platforms ignore without turning Jigsaw into a traditional charting platform!
This will be the first webinar where we discuss the architecture of the product, the unique features and take a look at where Jigsaw is heading in the future.
- One size fits all platforms vs specialization
- The plug-in isn't dead! New platforms supported
- Standing Alone. The benefits to users and Jigsaw
- Traditional platform 'bug bears' and why we avoided them
- Exit strategies
- Intelligent orders
- Exchange Traded Spreads
- Volume Stops
- What's coming next?
- How will this impact the existing 3000+ users?
Stocks, futures and options can be charted the same way but trade execution tools are massively different between them. Traditionally we have mostly seen charting platforms and execution platforms combined. In our opinion that's like combining your toaster and your lawnmower. Charting is absolutely important but execution can no longer take a back seat.
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?

I can only wish all the best for Peter Davies and the Jigsaw team for taking the leap to standalone! Their tools, attitude and helpfulness is one of the best I have come across in the retail trading business.

I'm looking into jigsaw trading and honestly I'm so new at this that I need a bit of guidance making a decision.
I've seen positive reviews so far, and I want to ask those traders who were once at a similar situation to mine.
I know nothing about the DOM, or about time and sales. Am I better off learning the DOM on NinjaTrader first and then looking into something like jigsaw? Or is jigsaw easy enough to pick up on its own that I'm better off just diving right in?
Would you say this is too much for a trader who's been full time live for ~6 weeks? I know this is a big gap in my trading style so I want to learn it ASAP, but I often tend to bite off more than I can chew.

I would recommend to start with Jigsaw. Not so much because I, and many here do recommend it, but because it has all you need to start learning, and is highly configurable, unlike NT's DOM which is just as useful as staring at a wall. You can look and look you will not see much, even more so as a beginner. Jigsaw is a no-brainer here!
DOM without context is useless but I took a look at your trading journal and it looks like you have a methodology that can provide you with that context.
It may take several months to be very good at it but depends on how long you spend on it. I had a month of drills in the Futex price ladder course before they shut it down (without telling customers) but you can find some of their lessons on youtube. Here is one:
They don't have all their lessons from the course on youtube but some good ones. I also recommend Grady's NoBSdaytrading courses.
It will just take time and you will get a feel for it. After getting used to it you'll realize that candles lag and you don't have to depend on a candle to close for confirm that you have to get out of a trade.
I don't recommend learning it on a fast market like CL but as John Grady suggests learning it on a slow and thick market like the 30-year Treasury. In the price ladder drills we often did them on the Bund.
Good luck and have fun!
