    Hello all,

    I am new to these message boards and have read through some. I am just looking for something simple to use. I have looked at Ninja Trader, but, sounds very complicated for what I am needing. Also, I have heard once you close it, you have to put your automation back in. It doesn't save it.
    Some of the options I like in Ninja Trader are:

    - Auto submit stop and target orders
    · OCO (one cancels other) orders
    · Automatic multi-step trail stops
    · Automatic break even stop loss

    I don't need anything to fancy or to overdone. Just something that can do simple stuff like the above. Once I enter the order, I would like to have the automation take over. Once it reaches a certain amount of pips, then this would happen, once it reaches this amount of pips, then this, etc.

    If anyone has any info, it would be greatly appreciated. Ninja Trader looks cool, but think it might be overdone for what I need.

    Tradestation looks ok, but, appears you must use them as your broker.

    Thanks all!!
