Any Luck with Ninjascript?

Hey guys, A little about me - I've been writing algos on and off for about a year and a half now. I started with Quantopian way back using python to write stock algos, then realised I couldn't live trade with it, so that put me off that.
I then found MT4 and MetaEditor and the world of forex... I was immediately in love with the simplicity of the language (C#), but I ditched it because forex just felt impossible to code around with all the volatility and news based price action. (I'm sure there's exceptions to this - but does anyone have a similar experience with it?)
I finally landed on NinjaTrader and scalping futures, which is amazing and seems to fit way better.
I'm wondering if anyone has experiences with successful Ninjascript trading systems and what advice they have etc. I've written up a few, one with a 76% success rate over 50 days but I'm starting to see how commission and tax really can have an impact...I'd also like to know about the reliability of backtesting using the Strategy Analyser vs Market Replay...
Who's out there! :)

Big List of Financial News, Research, and Data Websites

Hello /investing, I was looking for a good resource list for financial news, research, and data on Google and Reddit, but didn't find many good lists. So I spent some time and compiled my own. I hope this is helpful for other people.
You can take a look at this list in two column format here.
I'm looking for useful websites that I have missed. If you have any suggestions, please leave them in the comments.
I list the domain authority of each website in parentheses which is a measure of the prestige of the website and quality of the information in a numerical range from 0 to 100.
Although I review a wide range of websites, I personally recommend the Financial Times, Bloomberg, Wall Street Journal, Business Insider, and Zero Hedge for news, and Quandl for data.

Some basic algo trading questions on platform and data sources

Hi algoTrading,
I'm new to algorithmic trading, and was hoping to get some advice on how to get set up. My questions fall into two categories, first, what platforms do you guys use for backtesting, and second, where do you get your data from.
First, to clarify what I mean by 'platform'. I am looking for a mechanism which will enable me to (relatively) easily go from idea to backtest. For instance, in quantopian, you can write a strategy, and backtest it. The backtest will generate relevant metrics, and you do not have to worry about the code linking the strategy to the data. Additionally, if the platform allowed for more robust testing, like walk forward testing, and monte carlo analysis, that would be ideal.
I have seen two websites in particular, which seem to be popular. Quantconnect, and Quantopian. Now, I have looked into both of these, and I am not sure they are what I am after. First, I am a little skeptical of putting out algo's which I have poured my time hard work into, on sites which execute the code remotely. Second, I am more interested in derivatives trading than stock trading. If I were to use an online platform, I would prefer one which included data on Options/Futures/Forex. Additionally, while the language isn't a huge deal, I have experience in Java, and am learning Python for data Science applications. If there were a platform which let me use Python or Java, that would be ideal.
Second is the data source. This is a little redundant for online platforms, like quantopian, which are already integrated with the data. However, I have also been looking at Amibroker, which is executed locally on your computer, and does not come bundled with data. I have seen that you can get some data from IB, thinking about switching over to them, just for their data feeds. But really, the data I am interested in would be 1) EOD options data. 2) intra day futures/forex data. 3) intraday stocks/indexes/ETF data.
I am willing to pay for tools/data if necessary, but would prefer to keep costs as minimal as possible, as I am a losing trader with a day job.
Thanks in advance!

New to Forex. Which platform to use for automated trading?

I'm new to Forex and stock market trading in general although I have a strong background in computer science and algorithms. I had a couple of question about getting started, more specifically on how to implement automation strategies with Forex.
I am aware of website like Quantopian, but most of them do not allow users to test their strategies with currencies. Is there a similar platform that would allow trading with currencies? What would be the industry or suggested standard for algorithmic trading with Forex?
Any suggestions would be appreciated!
