In scalping, reliable fills are crucial. I don't think it's possible to scalp and make money without getting reliable fills. So you either need to use a market order, and have a system that is good enough to deal with slippage, or place limit orders such that fills are very likely. Limit orders placed in such a way to insure a fill, may decrease your profit per trade, but increase your profit overall. For example, if you are long, and place a limit sell order below, the current price, it will fill immediately. I'd like this thread to focus on getting reliable fills for a scalping strategy.
Hello- I am in the process of setting up my trading system for Futures. I am little reluctant to proceed with Trade Station because of the data problems I've been reading about with them lately. I am thinking of using Ninja/Zen and either Mirus or Velocity Futures as the broker. I'd like to know your experience with the speed of getting data and placing orders with such a Ninja based system - since most of the work in Ninja (especially for advanced orders) is done client side and not Server side. Do you find you miss opportunities, get bad fills or does it seem to be fast enough to allow you to be competitive. Thanks Khepfere
