Welcome to futures.io.

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.


You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

Just a quick word on NT for TsT in its present phase:

At this point, users who opt for testing Ninja on TsT are beta testers. Beta testers, in software releases, are supposed to find the inevitable bugs that the developers could not find because they were too close to their own software to test it in all its aspects.

This is a crucial part of software development and rollout... and somebody has to do it. Usually, it is early adopters who are willing to take their lumps in order to get a jump on using the initial version, in exchange for reporting the issues they find.

I've usually been the developer and not the tester, and have been grateful for the testers who found my bugs for me. Software can't be rolled out without them.

But if you want to just use the software in a Combine, hang on until the testing is complete. Really... there will be a lot of things that need to be found and fixed before using it is routine... or, perhaps, not so many, but the process still has to complete.

I am strongly in favor of TsT's Combine, and of their decision to add NinjaTrader to their supported platforms, but it will take a bit of real-time testing to shake it all down.

They're doing this right. Patience is important for the user community at this point, hopefully not for long. (And, yes, I'll be happy when I don't have to dork around with using NT for charting and the T4 DOM for trade entry .... Patience.... )

Bob.

Bob- Beta testing is over and NinjaTrader is good to go. We are currently in soft launch (haven't sent a mass announcement yet or added it to the site).

Currently, you can call or email our Trader support team (312.252.9490 and support@topsteptrader.com) and they will help you get connected with NinjaTrader in the Trading Combine.

NinjaTrader is available in the Combine

All,

To clarify, NinjaTrader is available in the Trading Combine. Everything has been tested and things are working well.

If you are interested in entering the Combine using NinjaTrader, please call or email our Trader Support team at 312.252.9490 or support@topsteptrader.com.

We are excited about the (soft) launch and will be announcing the official launch shortly. We wanted to provide those at futures.io (formerly BMT) an opportunity to get started before the general public. Thank you all for your patience and remember to trade smart!

I have a quick question to clarify something about your program. Is it required to take part in any training programs or chat rooms?

I am considering doing a combine when I have extra time in late spring/summer. However, if it requires more than phone/email correspondence and memorizing a set of rules I won't have the time. I would prefer to simply mirror my normal daytrades into your combine test.

MedianVelocity- We want our recruits and funded traders focusing on trading and following their rules as well as ours. Besides emails and a phone call (if you achieve the objective) there is a small amount of time you will need to devote to communicating with TST outside of showcasing your trading.

I hope that helps.

Futures Edge on FIO

Are you a NinjaTrader user?

 
Thanks, I will likely sign up for a combine late spring or summer.

I would be willing to dedicate a lot of time to TST. However, I need to verify that my set of rules and trading method can match your combine requirements consistently first. I will be able to spare the time if I pass the combine.

MedianVelocity- If you like, you may contact us at 312.252.9490 and our rep can help you customize the rules to fit with your trading style. Just an added option I wanted to mention.

squawk radio

hi MP,

I'm currently doing the free trial combine. I have tried a few times to get connected to the Squawk Radio, but couldn't. Is there something that I needed to download first or is it just for US based traders? tq.

having NT in the combine , is the good news.

do you offer NT in practice account too ? it seems still there is only T4 for practice period
are all bugs and issues with NT ,resolved ?
is there any plan to include EUREX popular instruments such as FGBL,FESX ?
your website was better before . now after changes it has a more complicated and less understandable appearance.
