Black Box and Gray Box Automated Trading

Getting Started

If you want to become an automated trader and/or use automation to assist you with trading, this is what you will need to get started:

1.  Computer skills.  You should be able to navigate basic computer menus and utilize ubiquitous software features.

2.  A reasonably spec'd computer.  Click here if you don't know what that means.  Note: You do not need to spend thousands.  You need a "Trading PC" as your equipment, NOT a PC on steroids for gaming.  Assuming you do not have a computer, expect to spend about $1400 total for a multiple flat panel monitor configuration.

3.  A computer desk for your PC and a chair.

4.  A funded brokerage account (with at least $2000 on deposit) that supports NinjaTrader.  Click here for a list of brokers that support NinjaTrader.

5.  A purchased or leased license for NinjaTrader.  Click here.

6.  A purchased or leased license for TMAT1, TMAT2, or TMAT-C.  Click here.
