    Hello everyone,

    We`ve decided to create own autotrading system for day-trading. But we have zero experience in it. Could you please advise a best broker for this purpose and platform.
    We`ve chosen Interactive Brockers + Ninja Trader. I would greatly appreciate any thoughts about this pair. Thank you a lot.

    That's a perfectly adequate combination of broker and platform to get started quickly.
  3. Ninja Trader works with many different brokers. For stocks IB is fine. If you ever decide to switch to futures or forex, there are a few more options to consider. (Futures is becoming increasingly popular for daytrading for a variety of reasons, it is definitely something to look at.)
