Buying Tradestation

Recommended Posts

Hello

It seems that the majority of people in here are using TS for their needs. I'm curious if anybody know how much Tradestation costs and if this is a good solution for informational purposes for trading the Nordic Exchanges.

 

I've my own broker, so actually I don't need the tradingmodule in TS.

 

Any advice are welcome for a tradingplatform where it's possible to use own dataprovider if the vendor doesn't supply the OMX-Nordic Exchange.

 

NB, I dont like eSignal, I think their usability and user interface looks like something from the 90' :eek:

 

Kind regards

Janus

Unfortunately, TS has only recently introduced Eurex and Liffe instruments so I don't see them offering other smaller exchanges in the near future. I hear IB is quite good in data feed many exchanges throughout the world. I'm not IB user so I can't comment too much on this. Maybe someone here has some input. Good luck.

TS has its own feed, I read from the TS forum with people having a hard time using third party feed. TS2000 was the package for purchase but I don't think they update them with new features like the subscription package (TS 8.2).

Tradestation 8.0 costs $250/ month without broker. eSignal costs as I remember $82/ month

 

Roughly it totals to $350 in monthly fees - expensive for me :o

 

Well okay... thank you all, maybe I can afford that in the future. And if I can't then me existence at the market is inadequate imho.

januson : why do you have to trade on your market ? cant you trade usa futures ? you could make it more cheaper, and to be sincere you dont need more than a good candles and volume that comes on any dom actually to get started ... even Mr paul is posting some simple but powerfull prohet.net charts, I dont know if you are following our new volume / candle setups saga... very simple stupid stuff and professional as well.... you would roughfly spend 50 bucks per month... on IB with ib charts 0.... give it another think... TS is wonderfull ( I admit) but its not the only way to trade succesfully.... cheers Walter.

TS is free if u set it up as your brokerage and make a piddly 10 round trips. well, free for the platform.

 

the data fees are more expensive than IB (ts charges for CME for instance), but for $30 a month, you can have CME, CBOT, PHil etc.

torero->

Sorry but I can't see the $99/ month, could it be when you're using TS as broker?

 

walterw->

No particular reason for the choice of market, I just thought it would be a good idea to learn the basics in my own region :)

Yes just started looking at prophet.net(thanks to your advice) ;)

 

dalby->

huh... but I need the OMX - Copenhagen Stock Exchange data so... but the more knowledge I get the more hooked I'm at trading other than the Nordics.

How reliable is the data for multicharts? Recommend it? How about execution and automation integrity?

 

I've been looking for an alternative to TS. I'm happy with TS except their clearing broker is not as good as other brokers I've seen, especially for forex market (DD!!! Dealing Desk!!!). If this one can do just as good for futures and forex, I may switch.

Since I am not sure what you need from platform, I will suggest you several options:

#1 - IB as data feed + quote Tracker ( $5/month) - simple charting package - no backtesting

#2 - IB as data feed + AmiBroker ( ~$200 or so) - charting and backtesting

 

#3 - IB as datafeed + MultiCharts ( from [http://www.tssupport.com]) ... I have not tried this package, but it is suppose to be compatible with Tradestation. It should run EasyLanguage code.

#4 - TradeStation 8.2 - with brokarage account is free if you trade 10 round trips on any futures contract ( not sure if TS support Copenhagen Stock Exchange )

Payback time... :)

 

Hello, just stumpled across this old post, where I was the thread starter. Back in marts 2007 I actually followed the advice for MultiCharts, I downloaded a trial version and bought the application later.

It ran a bit slow in the start, but later TSSUPPORT released a better optimized version and now they've just released version 2.1.999.999, 18 September 2007. This version is very quick I can tell, it calculates indicators in a rush and never chrashes or freezes :roll eyes:

 

I'm very happy for this product, it suits my needs perfectly and the price was actually ok also. I paid a one time fee for MultiCharts and signed up with eSignal for Nordic OMX Exchange (Copenhagen and Sweden Stock Exchange). The Esignal subscription costs me $115 in monthly fee.

 

Im just a happy camper... ;)

Hey januson have you had any problems running Tradestation indicators in Multicharts? I've read it's 'compatible', but I was wondering if you could give me an idea if you have any custom easy language indicators that have given you any trouble.

 

Thanks

 

George

Just go to Think or Swim. I've tried almost every broker out there and they offer the most for the least amount. They also have Think A.I. which is a artificial intelligence program that projects the direction for that day. All of their software is free with a funded account.

Just my 2 cents. I had trade station for awhile. I liked it just okay. But imho to Pricey for data. I am using Ensign Windows. now and am happy check out http://www.dacharts.com. my broker "infinity futures supplies data at no cost. Invester Rt looks good as well.

I also just started to Use Ninja were it is free for charting. as long as you have data. so I am just playing with it.

P.S. Hope it helps. Remember its just a platform and it won't make you trade any better.

The USD remained enigmatic in NY session but Asian session pulled it down indicating weakening USD.

Expect the Dollar to show some weakness in Asian and London session , while NY will decide

the direction.

As for the Pound we are expecting it to bounce up from the 1.5143 to 1.5169 zone.

Overall outlook for the USD pairs remains Weak to Neutral.

    • USDJPY PRICE OUTFLOW IS DRAWN BY SELLERS BACK TO 114.840   USDJPY Price Analysis – November 25 USDJPY price outflow is being held back as a consequence of bears causing opposition to the market influence. The price structure of the market strives to maintain an uptrend configuration under a bullish influence. However, the sellers are causing some resistance in the market, which is causing a hold in the market configuration. Because of this conflict in the market, the outflow of the bulls in the market will be held back to the 114.840 critical level. USDJPY Critical Levels Resistance Levels: 114.840, 112.790 Support Levels: 110.800, 109.100 USDJPY Long Term Trend: Bullish The bullish outflow price structure initially began with the expansive breadth of consolidation. The market was birthed after a strong price expansion before the bullish uprise. The price undulated between the breadth of the 110.800 and 109.100 significant price levels. As a result of this accumulation, the price was then pushed out to higher levels. With the continuation of the market expansion, buyers outflow upward, with the bulls taking hold of the market. Furthermore, price continues to experience more outflows as several structural levels were broken. When USDJPY eventually gets to the 112.790 level, the price resumes its accumulation phase. The market encountered a short phase of expansion before resuming bullish persistence. The price finally breaks through the 114.840 significant level and we expect a withdrawal back to this price level before bullish engagement. The Tensile Strength indicator shows the resilience of the market influence as the market is set to resume its bullish leverage after sellers retreat. USDJPY Short Term Trend: Bearish The 4-hour chart of USDJPY shows the price configuration riding upward following a strong force that broke through the 114.840 critical level. The price is now set in a retreat motion as the price is seen to be pulling away to the 114.840 price level. The Moving Average Convergence and Divergence indicator shows the market’s prevalent direction as the price is set on a pullback course to the 114.840 critical level before bullish outflow.   Source: https://learn2.trade
    • EURJPY DEPRECIATES TO LOWS NEAR 128.00 FOLLOWING COVID RESURGENCE   EURJPY Price Analysis – November 26 EURJPY pair fell for the third session in a row on Friday, depreciating to the area of recent lows in the 128.00 range. As the new strain of COVID weighs heavily on investors’ sentiment, strong buying interest in the Japanese yen puts EURJPY under added pressure in the sub-129.00 levels. Key Levels Resistance Levels: 130.50, 130.00, 129.61 Support Levels: 127.00, 126.50, 126.00 EURJPY Long term Trend: Ranging On Friday, the EURJPY opened higher at 129.31 and moved lower to 127.79 intraday lows losing almost 1%. The pair plunged, as bears emerged and traders focused on levels below 128.00. To investigate the bearish scenario, a decisive fall below 128.00 must be established. The pair may continue to fall into the next session, with bearish traders targeting the 127.00 area as a possible objective. As long as the 128.00 support level holds and the price is sustained above, more gains may be expected. A strong breakout of 128.50, on the other hand, would confirm that the rebound from 127.79 low has come to stay, bringing this low back into focus as a new bottom. EURJPY Short term Trend: Bearish The EURJPY is still trading bearishly from its October high of 133.47 on the 4-hour charts, and the intraday bias is still to the downside. If the resistance at 128.50 holds, a further drop is likely. A decisive rebound past 128.50, on the other hand, will consolidate on the entire rebound from 127.79 low level. The mid-term support turned resistance level of 130.00 will be the next level of contention. A break of revised support around the 128.00, on the other hand, might reverse the rebound and broaden the down leg from 130.00 with a new phase of the drop towards the mid 127.00 in the coming session.   Source: https://learn2.trade

Bunds already outperformed yesterday, as EZ spreads widened in the wake of hawkish leaning ECB comments & confirmation that German finance ministry will go to the liberal FDP, which likely means more resistance to debt mutualisation across the EZ & more pressure on ECB to limit asset purchases. DAX & FTSE 100 futures are currently up 0.4% & 0.3% respectively & US futures are posting gains of 0.3-0.4%, suggesting markets are coping quite well with the prospect of less accommodative policies.

    • EURUSD HOVERS NEAR MULTI-MONTH LOW, UNDER 1.1250 LEVEL   EURUSD Price Analysis – November 24 Throughout the session, the EURUSD pair remained on the losing side and was last seen moving with considerable losses around the 1.1250-36 level. The announcement that the White House has opted to reappoint incumbent Fed Chair Jerome Powell for a second term sparked the recent strong dip. The spot is trading at 1.1253 at the time of writing, down 0.25 percent on the day. Key Levels Resistance Levels: 1.1525, 1.1422, 1.1300 Support Levels: 1.1200, 1. 1150, 1.1100 EURUSD Long term Trend: Bearish EURUSD has sunk to fresh multi-day lows, as seen on the daily chart, after extending the recent breach beneath the moving averages 5 around the 1.1300 level. This exposes the possibility of a deeper pullback and a re-test of the psychological support around 1.1200. Under the 1.1200 level, the euro’s underlying bullish attitude is in jeopardy. Overall, the EURUSD stays bearish while trading under the major horizontal support turned resistance and significant level at 1.1422. A breakout of the 1.1300 level, on the other hand, would aim for the 1.1350 level on the way to the 1.1400 zones. The fall of the 1.1200 zones, in the alternative scenario, is viewed as a bearish continuation indicator. EURUSD Short term Trend: Bearish The risk is weighted to the negative on the 4-hour chart, as the pair is developing below the firmly bearish 5 and 13 moving averages. Technical indicators have shifted to the downside, with negative levels. However, in the present scenario, the RSI has not yet reached oversold territory, allowing for more selling. On the upside, a break over the modest resistance level of 1.1300 might shift the intraday bias to neutral. On the downside, the 1.1200 zones provide initial support. The next important level of support is around the 1.1150 mark. If there are any more losses, the 1.1100 extension level of the low decline may be tested. Source: https://learn2.trade
