Welcome to

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

Won't it? Couldn't have much worse. (API documentation, that is.)

I don't want to barge in, but with NT8 presumably getting near to its release (anyone have any word on that??), I was going to say that getting too deeply into NT7, or perhaps doing very much with it at all, except purely surface stuff, may not be a great idea.

That said, I have stayed away from the NT8 beta project, not wanting more complication right now, and so I don't really know how NT8 will turn out. Are you in it, or do you otherwise have an idea?


Yes agreed, that's why I mentioned the caveat about not investing too much time, it's a value judgement risk.

As an aside, I forgot to mention Reflection tools if somebody did want to go deeper, in practice I've always considered that a step too far, although that's just a personal cut-off level.

I'm not involved with the NT8 Beta out of choice, but have noticed how quiet things are, NDA's notwithstanding. However, I wish it well and I do hope they invest much more into documentation than was done for NT7, which stayed at a traditionally awful programmer level of documentation, something both of us know a lot about.

In any case NT7 meets all my needs for the next few years and I don't think NT8's approach to multithreading will be the performance solving Grail that many expect due to extra memory requirements and related system hardware issues. For my own purposes I can already multithread anything I need to under NT7 and a single core graphics thread has never been an issue. Too many users and programmers focus on too low a level of data abstraction and storage. Get the semantic levels right and most performance issues disappear, even with a basic system architecture.

Well off-topic now, but worth tidying up I think. If somebody tells me NT8 is rock solid and absolutely flies then I'll change my mind fast and I'll buy it. Oh wait I get it free.


Travel Well
