Default Dear Traders and Support Staff:

Does anyone know of a good online Futures broker that feeds cash value of account to Ninja Trader and very low commisions?

I just got the 7 day trial of the Position Sizer Add-on that is available for Ninja Trader and it is very very nice.

This program calculates the position size of your trade using the percent risk model and for that is works perfectly. But there is one problem -- that if your broker does not auto-feed your account balance then you have to enter the balance after every trade.

And that is not posible if you trade in very short time frames like I do many times.

Also going to my broker account website says that position data is not live and could be delayed by 10mins or more!

Does Vision Financial Markets provide Cash Value data for your live account?

I know Zen Fire does. Which are the different Futures Zen Fire brokers?
Has Zen Fire fixed its connectivity issues that I heard some traders experience?

Why do brokers not make reporting Cash Value a standard?!

Thank you guys!

Hi,

I can't comment on any broker, but you might want to look here what's provided:
http://www.ninjatrader-support2.com/...ead.php?t=5474

Our Zen-Fire brokers are Mirus Futures and Amp Futures
I'm not familiar with any open issues about connectivity with Zen-Fire. As far as I know all should work well.

Thank you Vincent.

Do you know if Vision Financial Markets can also display the Cash Value of the account in the Ninja Trader platform?

Also I noticed there are MANY more ZenFire/Ninja Brokers right now!

So I will have to go thru all of them to see if they meet my criteria.

Thank you

Omar Ignacio

Yes, this should be displayed after you have executed your first Live order.

With Vision Financial Markets you mean, Vincent?

Vision will display the Cash Value after the first live trade?

Futures, foreign currency and options trading contains substantial risk and is not for every investor. An investor could potentially lose all or more than the initial investment.
