  1. Thank you for taking the time Peter! I will certainly add NYSE Level 1! As per the 'view a list', the info that it reveals is not really pertinent the US equities that BBT trades... here it is... any thoughts?
  2. Hello fabulous community of awesome traders! I am ramping up my Day Trading ability and am learning so much connecting every morning to listen to Andrew, Brian and Carlos! However, while attempting to study their trades on my own software setup (I'm based on NinjaTrader 8 with a Kinetick data feed), I notice that many of the stocks that the guys are trading on are not accessible to me. (I currently only have NASDAQ on my Kinetick data feed) Could you recommend which additional data feed I need to purchase from Kinetick to be able to follow along? Thank you so much! Safe and profitable trading to you all! Jean-Pierre ------------ P.S. Here are the options I can choose from. Which should I add?
  3. Hi Marek, thanks for the prompt and useful response. I just checked SPX and SPY and the difference between the constantly traded SPY and normal-trading-hours SPX appears to explain the difference. Obviously if #ES and SPY are nearly identical then financial analysts could have talked about the overnight divergence between SPY and SPX instead of the futures... Q: What is your take on days when pre-market futures are way up or down? Has your observation been that the investors behind the futures are usually right and the market will go in the direction they predict? Do you pay any attention to futures as you begin your trading day? Thanks for the awesomeness!
  4. Hello fabulous BBT community! With the wild stock market ups and downs we're seeing these days, we'll frequently hear before the market opens on financial websites things like that "S&P Futures are up 400 points!" giving possible clues on how that markets will rally or fall during that day... Attempting to read this data myself I come up frustrated. For example if I overlay SPY with ES 09-20 or ES1! they are nearly identical to each other once properly re-scaled. I just don't see much divergence between the instruments and certainly not 400 points! What I my missing? What information source do market analyst review when they say things like "S&P/NYSE/NASDAQ Futures are up/down x points!" Thanks for the awesomeness and keep your person and your wallet safe! Jean-Pierre
  5. I'll try to go for sure! I'm based in Coral Springs FL (close to Boca Raton) My email is [email protected]
  6. Thanks Marcel, Having short shares is quite important. I'm happy that you think the fills are good... most important! How did you decide between IB fixed versus IB tiered? (I'm thinking of IB tiered so I can have one large buy and 3-4 sells per trade (so I can scale out of my position at different pullbacks)
  7. Thanks Johan, much appreciated. It looks like its a tossup right now between IB and SpeedTrader. I'll have to do a bunch of reading to try to intelligently pick between the two!
  8. Hi Johan, thanks for the useful tips. I look forward to being at the level you're at now Have you considered Speed Trader? Could it reduce your overall bill? (See Abiel's response to my post here)
  9. Have you considered Speed Trader? (See Abiel's recommendation on my post at It would be so nice if we could find a way to reduce this further! Hopefully broker competition will continue
  10. I was just wondering about that Robert thank you. When does fixed start to make sense for us guys?
  11. Hi guys, I'm still in the process of setting up the right broker for me and these fees seem quite high! (Especially paying 5% of $50K = $2,500 per month = $125 per trading day.) More info on your usage please: Johan: How many full-cycle trades per day? What average share size? Did you find exorbitant fees ontop of regular (low) IB commissions? Marcel: you pay around $10 per full-cycle trade? Which broker? What do you think is best for my needs? (Described here)
  12. We meet again Mr. Bond! Thanks for that heads up on these other traders... Have you observed personally any difference in the quality of the fills between the ones you tried? (I'm still considering using my RobinHood account for some of the slower long opportunities... do you think its a waste of time and I should not trade anything with Robinhood?
  13. Hello double-o-seven! Yes I'm seriously getting lots of signals that I have to carefully ease into this and I heavily will make use of simulators as I 1) attempt to understand what how/why the moderators are trading and 2) I test various theories and programmatic helping tools that I can trust to help point the various buy / sell indicators. Have you accumulated much experience with simulators? Can you attest on how accurate they are? (I would usually trade 1000-2000 shares on the usual high-volume gapping 'stocks in play' the moderators are investigating.
  14. Thanks for taking the time Abiel, I see with SpeedTrader that it all depends on the expected number of trades per month... To get $2.95 rate I'd need to make about 25 trades per trading day but their $3.95 reduces that to 10 trades per day which could be more feasible. Lots to think about!
  15. Hello (awesome) Bear Bull Traders! As one of your newest lifetime members, I'm in the process of shifting my $50K trading account into the best possible broker for me and would love to obtain advice on what home base should be for my trading account! Reading in this forum posts such as this post, I was saddened to hear that the Interactive Brokers usually very reasonable commission can easily double due to various 'fees' that IB needs to pay its partners to route your order. (I currently have an IB account but not I'm not so sure if it's optimal for me) I understand that IB has fixed and tiered pricing structure, somewhat making the decision more complex... Could you recommend the best between the three given my trading pattern: - I intend to invest mostly in stocks between $5 to $75 with the 'sweet spot' around $35. - I'll be staying away from low float < $10 stocks until I'm consistently profitable with mid-float stocks. - I expect most transactions will be around $20K-$40K so around 1,000 to 3,000 shares per transaction. - To start I'll probably do about 5-10 transaction a day every day but I also want to try my hand at semi-automated scraping so that might go up to 20-40 trades per day. Which of the three do you think is best for me? (SpeedTrader, CenterPoint securities, IB fixed, IB tiered) Thanks for the awesomeness! Jean-Pierre
