Velocity Futures and Ninja Trader?

Discussion in 'Trading Software' started by steve0617, Dec 13, 2004.

  1. Can one use Ninja Trader's front end with Velocity Futures? If so, would that still require the $500 X-trader fee in order to get the reduced commissions? Is there any way to eliminate the $500 fee (account size? something else?)

    seems to me if you go with velocity it's because you get x-trader, you can use nija, anywhere

    VF offers Xtrader for free, but the commissions are higher.
  4. Free? Just like forex commissions...
  5. remember, NOTHING IS FREE
  6. Thanks for the input but nobody's answered my questions yet.

    1. Does NinjaTrader work with Velocity?
    2. If yes, can I use their brokerage with that front end and get both the lowered commissions and not have to pay the $500 software rental?
    3. If not, is there anyway to get the reduced commissions but not have to pay the $500 monthly, perhaps with depositing a larger amount in my account?
