Congratulations to the winners in the NinjaTrader webinar:

@groogle has won a 3 month NT subscription multi-broker license
@Gary has won a 2-year NT multi-broker license
@Priceaction and @EC8547 have won a round-trip ticket from anywhere in the world to Las Vegas for the November Traders Expo



Great prizes guys, and thanks to Ray for adding a "bonus" prize at the end of the webinar

The webinar has some great Q&A about NinjaTrader 8 (yes, 8) so check out the recording later, will post the link once is ready.

Last - since @Gary is a friend of mine, I captured a screenshot showing he was in fact first to answer the question just in case anyone thinks I just gave my friend a license.... You can also confirm with Ray @ NinjaTrader that I had no knowledge of the quiz questions prior to him asking them live/real-time like everyone else. Screen shot shows he is first to answer, and is the only answer sent to Ray which Ray confirmed was correct. Just wanted to get that out of the way

round-trip ticket

Hi Mike,

You don't have a screenshot of the winning answers for the round-trip tickets ?

I just realized that my name for the seminar was "Jefke LOO" and not me usual name looser1369.

I heard Ray saying something like that and I also noticed you just looked on my profilepage ...

The winners are all decided, sorry you were not one of them. The name you used in webinar really doesn't matter, it's just a requirement of the software to input something. I asked the winners for their bmt usernames.

Mike, just a little constructive feedback on how the competition was run this morning. I'm not sure I have a better solution to drawing the prizes but the "first correct answer" puts those of us on the other side of the planet at a distinct disadvantage due to ping times. I know I am being picky but I would have loved to go to Vegas (baby) for free. I know I have an average ping of 250ms to the US through some testing I did with Sam28 so even if I was the fastest keyboard gun in the world I bet someone could start and finish a response in my travel time.

Never though I'd say this but "I wish the speed of light was faster"

Thanks for the webinar this morning (australian time) though. I have used NT for a 3+ years and I still learnt a thing or two this morning in the Q&A with Ray.

Mike, thanks for putting on the MultiCharts webinar! Watched the video of it and was a good introduction to software and especially like the stop loss, profit target, trade management functions.

Sorry for delay with posting the NT recorded webinar. My a/c has completely blown up and I've spent last two days getting quotes, on phone, service calls, etc. Have had to buy a whole new system to be installed tomorrow. My office is 94 degrees. Some of my computers have shut down due to "over temp" already, my main desktop is still running luckily.

I will post it tomorrow or Saturday.
