DislikedTYVM for the info....do u have issues with OCO orders placed on Ninja going through MBT? I believe I read some line on Ninja about this issue...could be another sticking problem.....Ignored
DislikedTYVM for the response. That is what I came across as well. Do u have experience with tradestation? pIgnored
DislikedYes I bought it in 1995 and used it for years... until they screwed all of us who bought lifetime licenses and put all further upgrades on a lease only basis. I won't do business with those guys because they screwed us so hard on that deal.
You have to either pay through the nose per month for the software lease, or do a minimum amount of business with a less than desirable broker of FX. .... you'd be trading at IBFX through TradeStation.... to build credit toward the lease payment. Or you can feed it subscription based data and trade at MB.
DislikedI heard TS really pissed off a lot of people back then. It helped spawn what is now MultiCharts. Did you ever use it?
A lot of people, while they may not agree with TS's business practices, still appreciate one of their main selling points: long historical tick and minute data for a ton of symbols. Not sure if you can still export the datafeed; I only imagine you can as MultiCharts still have TS listed as a supported datafeed. What people would do is "lease" the TS platform by opening a futures or forex (or stocks or whatever), then trading...Ignored
I have a question about execution priority. Who will have his order executed first between liquidity provider and MBT traders ?
Suppose EUR/USD is at bid 1.2688 for 5M and ask 1.2689 for 5M. So the bid is probably a liquidity provider. I place a buy limit order at 1.2688 for 100K. The new bid is now 1.2688 for 5.1M. Someone places a market order to sell 100K. Will I be filled before the liquidity provider ?
Any idea ? Justin ?Ignored
DislikedI paid $3500 for a lifetime license that only lasted 5 yrs.... then they wanted recurring monthly payments or you could pay for that with a minimum number of trades....
I'm not giving them any ongoing business after they just screwed me out of my paid license... ever.... its been 12 years and I'm still pissed.
MultiCharts is an MB parter and will take MB's data feed.
Never used MultiCharts, but have loaded it up and looked at it.... both TradeStation and MultiCharts are IMHO old and have been superceded by more modern implementations like...Ignored
DislikedJust went through initial checking of ninja ...but no go .. could not get price lines with prices on it on hi/lo bars efficiently placed on charts......back to mt4 ..until I値l find something more user friendly . I知 not a programmer just a trader......Ignored
DislikedOnly you can judge what is best for you to use --
IMHO the learning curve on a package is commensurate with its power and capabilities. It is no doubt an investment in time to master the capabilities of a powerful software package. But it does pay dividends for years to come once that investment is made.Ignored
DislikedDo we have any progress with making the Free EXN plan available for all accounts? Trading with MT4 is comparable to trading with your eyes closed and now that the Pay for Limits program is reduced from $4 rebates to $1 rebates, it's not nearly as fun.
MB isn't really offering anything too special anymore... My IB account is now more active than my MB account...Ignored
