I'm thinking about buying a lifetime license from NinjaTrader. I've read up a little bit on using OrderFlow- but, I don't know if it's going to be worth the investment. Any feedback on the matter would be much appreciated.

with ninja the biggest thing is being able to use an ATM the free version doesn't come with that

yes
risk deternined and stable
risk lower
reaction clearer and more correct -you see very soon does trade goes or not and you able to get out
in one hour you can make 5-10 trades
suitable for different trading strategies - intraday daytrade scalping and so
allows you to see wehre market will go in 1 -2 minutes and where it will return and more
you can read "Tape is my shape" thread - there alot of info

I recently purchased the nt8 license and so far I am good with it. I agree with mini p, the ATM is really nice. The super DOM is pretty cool too. I also have TOS and it doesn’t have anything like ATM. TOS has all the same order flow stuff as nt...same bar types, same indicators, backtesting, sim, etc. The big hang up for me when making my platform decision was that nt only supported 2 brokerages. Sierra supports a few more. But I found that nt was a little more intuitive to use so I took the plunge. And so far so good.
