A lot of people who are into futures trading are fond of Ninja Trader platform. So here I go and am going to give it a try.

I haven't been using that many platforms for the past ten or so years being a trader. When I began trading I started with CFDs on MT4 platform, trading mainly SPX and DAX. After that I had a short period with options and OptionMonster, trading options on AAPL, QQQ and SPY. And only after that I got hooked on futures trading and especially grains - ZC, ZW and ZS. I've been using FireTip platform from Ironbeam which still I like quite much especially the older version reminding me of some retro computer trading of late 80s and early 90s  - the time I'm a quite big fan of. I think it was the best time for trading where computers only helped people and traders were in the center of this industry; however with computer science developing and going further into trading business, algos entered among us which led traders to seek more sophisticated programs so to say, i.e. platforms, to use as to trade. I heard that NJ platform offered quite good not algo but pre-set strategy trading which to provide better execution and fills. What I've been struggling to get from FireTip is good execution, so now I am testing my trading strategies in Ninja Trader as to see how it works out.

Apart from that NJ design is quite cyberpunk which appeals quite a bit to me.
