Algorithmic trading Futures Forex Stocks ETFs CFDs with an edge with MicroTrends NinjaTrader

Paying Traders on Gold Members/ Platinum Members/ lifetime get access to in depth support/ templates and priority support to accelerate their learning. Free traders are welcome to experiment as they want to.

Perhaps to be in the top 5% of retail algorithmic traders you simply have to have a systematic approach, plan, systems, test, collate stats from backtest, out of sample and pre-production realtime sim trading. Retail traders seem to think they don’t need to bother to learn the basics and take time, trading with a plan and a methodology – i believe this is down to lying and cheating websites/ brokers and vendors who falsely push the claim trading is easy – its simple perhaps but not easy – consistency is the key, time and patience, money should not be wasted trading it should be used on  a server, historical datafeed ,save money by using the NinjaTrader free trade platform and free algorithmic automated trading systems

Sadly it’s no surprise that in algorithmic trading perhaps 95% fail where as only 80% fail at discretionary trading. For some reason most retail traders think they are exonerated from being systematic, procuring data, following a plan, performing manual or automated back testing, and selecting a system and instrument to suit their style/ capital and risk appetite.

Most traders want to skip all the hard work and arrive to Pro level with big rewards coming in… the reality is very different – and time will educate some of them who will go on to succeed.

I have spent sometimes more than 18months at a time backtesting and experimenting and don’t consider that anything unusual, if you want to be good at something put the time in – that is the way to all paths of success which is sustainable. I am constantly re-enforcing what works and experimenting and learning – markets change volatility and liquidity…

5 simple Steps to enhancing your trading decisions, expertise and knowledge

  1. Use a system of excel and folders to control your progress segregating your trading stats for each combination of: system instrument dataseries templates and account name. That will give you the history and the statistical evidence to make informed decisions. (old/ platinum members get this from MicroTrends and its shared on google/drop box so updates and support is provided)
  2. Procure data, backtest, out of sample and pre-production realtime sim test
  3. Setup additional NinjaTrader simulated accounts so that you are backtesting/out of sample testing/ pre productions testing.
  4. When trading in realtime – export the stats daily or hourly to excel and store these, take screenshots and make notes on the charts store these in a folder for each week.
  5. Collate and summaries the weekly stats for each system so you have the statistical evidence and a weekly view so you can avoid recency bias on an intraday level and keep out the emotions – just follow a routine.
