I am just starting my trading journey and would like some pointers from the vast knowledge that is available from everybody in this community. I have been doing research for the past six months or so and just recently opened a Ninjatrader account to finally go live. The free version is quite limited and the “own” version is too pricey too unlock all the features for me. (Should have done more research i guess )
First: Can anybody recommend trading software for a beginner? I’m leaning towards Sierra Charts. I’ve tried out a demo in the past and it’s very full featured, but has a learning curve ( I’m ok with that). Is there another platform that I should be looking at that would be a better fit for someone just starting out?
Second: Any recommendations for trading the overnight session? I have a full time day job and live on the west coast. I won’t be able to trade the day session. I will be able to trade from 4pm PST to 11 pm PST. I have been trading the NQ starting out, just wondering if there is any opinions about what market/s would be good for a beginner to get his feet wet while trying to develop a system and get the psychological side figured out.
Any and all input would be greatly appreciated.
