IB Front-End with Performance Data

Discussion in 'Data Sets and Feeds' started by HispaTrader, Jul 5, 2007.

  1. I've been considering ZeroLineTrader, ButtonTrader, and NinjaTrader as an IB front-end. However, I would like to use something that also tracks my trading performance so that I don't have to do that manually. So far, it looks like NinjaTrader fits the bill. Are there any other reasonably-priced alternatives? I only really need a flexible DOM for order entry/exit and the ability to track trading performance data. I really like ZLT, but it doesn't provide performance data.

    By the way, it looks like NinjaTrader gets a bad wrap around here, why is that? I would have expected a higher rating than this http://www.elitetrader.com/so/?action=view&SR_ProductID=92

    what data do you really need ? lol

    only thing that matters is the p&l and any platform tracks that very nicely or badly depending if its green or red. heh
  3. Typical stuff, like win/loss ratio, profit factor, percent profitable, equity curve, MAE/MFE, etc. Data similar to TradeStation's TradeManager Analysis.
