Going to start position trading again. Don't want to use a broker. Don't want to have a computer running all the time to make sure stops get hit. My day trading platform, Trade Navigator (excellent platform) suggested using one of their virtual servers to keep trades and stops. There is a small fee for it. Using CQG and AMP. Suggestions?

If you do a search for VPS you'll find several threads.
@sam028 offers special pricing to Elite Members and has professional servers/services, you can find it on the Elite landing page of futures.io (formerly BMT). There is also a thread for info on his company.
In general using a VPS is a really smart/reliable and cost-effective solution. I think it makes a lot of sense for a lot of reasons, covered in one of the many VPS threads on the site.
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?
