Personally, my interpretation of that is that options will NOT be supported in NT8.

But @NinjaTrader Ray will be back on Thr Feb 27th, so you can ask him then.

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)

hmm perhaps i'm misinterpreting... Ray says 'we do have underlying options support', but then in the same sentence says 'we're not sure to what level we may or may not support options at this point in time'. sounds pretty vague..... maybe the framework is there but in a state of flux and maybe not a priority so they're not prepared to delay the whole release because of it?

ha this is just like trying to figure out what bernanke is saying half the time... for sure let's ask Ray to clarify on the next session!

I tried that a long time ago, and their are multiple solutions.
The first one is to write the code directly in a Ninja strategy using IBCSharp - Home or Building C# compiler in C# - Home , but both have not been updated, so I won't try it now.

was just browsing the IB forums and it looks like the codeplex version if IB Csharp is buggy... the google code version is apparently more stable, but still somewhat dated at a year old... at least the developer appears available to answer questions

I want to create some C# code that will sign onto to IB and place an option order from within the NT strategy even though options trading is unsupported from within NT

are you gonna do it?!? just wondering myself, not a coder but i am willing to help do any testing.
