thanks a lot for your advices and experiences kk240.
i will consider them.. and i will inform you with the news from my side also.
dukas seems to be the one of the good and safe brokers , with account opening 1000 usd..( retail)
thak a lot actually.
I am currently developing semiautomatic system to ninja its a beta testing phase, now its send orders using dukas mt4 bridge. Maybe I need two weeks more time, then i will develope ninja dukas tcp interface,
Now I can get data from dukas using DDE i was lazy allready had dde interface(between Ninja-Ninja,Ninja->TradeStation,MT4->Ninja etc.., there is also commercial application around 400 euros.
You can find it from forum.
If you want use ninja, its maybe easiest way use MBT broker, or PFGBest. you get historical data.
I just want use both MBT and Dukas.

Molecule6 "helper" application, trade management strategy is very usefull because jforex lack functionality.
Quantisan (blog,search google) is sharing his break even strategy I think there is no trails, but if you know how to develope java applications it should couple minutes work. then you don't need molecule6 IA service. even they are returning 45% trading fees back to you.
I have used Duka for 6 or 7 months now and they have not had a downtime on their servers just yet. However I feel their platform JForex is not too suitable for traders who are very active within short time frame. It is very slow to change the price if conditions have changed. It often cost me money as the market has gone away from me.
Willing to try NinjaTrader DOM but it is not available to Dukascopy without the third party DNT bridge, which cost $499. Other brokers have developed their data feeds to work with NT free.
Also on the question of liquidity. I find the Dukas spreads OK, but no one is trading them that actively. For example if the market in GBP/USD goes to 1.6110 quoted on Esignal, and I am on the bid 1.6120 to get out of my shorts, Dukas can quote 1.6120/1.61201 slimming the spread but not letting you out unless another trader just hits your 20 bid.

No problem, There is simple way to transfer orders to dukas using jforex Metrader Bridge, need to program interface for ninja
bridge is using flat files what metrader is writing. its also possible to write from ninja those log files.
I don't know what features you are using/needing ninjas dom.
Second way is using dukas tcp/ip interface. and application which uses or reads ninjas ATI
Both need programming skills. I think DNT bridge is using this this tcp interface.
Currently my semi strategy is using this simple flat file interface, and when i had done testing base logic of my system i have time to develope similar interface than DNT: I think it will be near march or april when I can publish.
I have seen somebody wrote ninja chart trader here in download section, i have not looked it, but its maybe possible to use that applications and create order sending interface quite easily or several day work.
Metatrade log file is simple english and its not big issue,"send" open modify close positions.
Why you don't just take your money from dukas and start using MBT.
I also don't like how they treat they customers in this IA issue, I also found my self DukasCopy, and Molecule6 didn't show me anything or told me dukas is great, Dukascopy should give me full rebate.
Not understand they policy.
I will not start learning jforex programming/java, poor documentation and not like API, I will try to use they wiki example and try to read code, and write tcp interface but if you need it now, can't help you.
