It would be nice if Ninja could use multi core CPU a lot more. I use I7 CPU and it use max 15% and are very heavy to start becouse of some simpel data calculation in MarketAnalyzer and on chart. Why not let this go to different core.?

I think my request is related to this one. My testing has shown that the database engine has some problems. I don't think the performance is limited to the MS SQL CE, but due to the design and proper Indexes. I don't know if a DBA has looked at the structure, but for example, simply deleting all the data from a Replay should be almost instant if the data has proper indexes, but this can take hours on long runs.

Please look at the DB structure and/or allow an ODBC connection to MS SQL and MySQL so users can decide to upgrade if they choose or need to.

Also, time accuracy should be better than 1 second as this causes many problems with non-time based charts and strategies.

(1) Ability to add a Trailing Stop to an Open Position. (without ATM strategy)
(2) Display Price on a Horizontal Line without having to use "constant line indicator"
(3) Display 10 levels of depth on the Dom instead of 5.
(4) Put a Volume Profile on the DOM.

Sorry if these were already mentioned.

It would be nice to jump to a past date & time on a chart instead of scrolling back.

Allow the importing of .cs files. If it compiles great, if not throw a warning message. But too many people try to import .cs and don't understand why it doesn't work.

This was a nightmare for me, when I first start to use NT. I took me several days to understad why I could not install any indicator.

The ability to assign several indicators as a "group" as opposed to a "template".

For example, I think in Tradestation I had a set a 4 moving averages with types, colors, and sizes already assigned, that were locked as a single group and could be turned on and off of any template by a single selection.

  • A naming convention for indicators that causes them to be logically grouped in the list of indicators that appears when indicators are added to a chart. Use a military style naming convention with names containing group categorization followed by spaces and punctuation characters in the this. Name property. For example, all Moving Averages would be grouped together because the this.Name property for every one would begin with the string "MA, ". All Oscillator names would begin with "Oscillator, " etc (See attachment)
  • The option of reporting trades either as reported by the exchange, or of re-bundling as one trade those transactions that happen within 1/100 of a second of each other.
  • The ability in the FormatPriceMarker method to apply multiple custom formats and values when an indicator has multiple plots, instead of being forced to format and value all the markers identically.
  • The ability to EXACTLY CLONE a chart, including all DataSeries settings.
  • Combining the Bid, Ask, and Last files into one file that is properly sequenced and has millisecond time stamps based on EXCHANGE time.
  • Providing for batch updating of replay data for a date range and for a number of instruments, instead of current method of one instrument at a time, one day at a time.
  • Providing for the handling of stack overflow errors without crashing the application.... can this be done?

Yes please.
Ability to create "Groups" so we can assign Indicators and/or Templates as we chose into groups.
As is I have an inordinate list of both to scroll through, that often makes no sense even to me !

Your support btw, imo, is and always has been extremely good..many thx

Every moment I wake up I realize I know nothing, and then I smile...

Attaching stop orders to drawing objects (rays and lines) would be awesome. It would greatly simplify stops behind trend lines or catching breaks of channels, trendlines, triangles....

grouping indis

May fall along the lines of previously mentioned, if possible allow the user to arrange/group the indicators,
e.g. you can make group/folder for oscillators,moving averages,supp/res,etc. something besides them being arranged automatically by what the name is, having to scroll through whole list hunting.

1 - Tabbed Workspace.

I believe Ray confirmed this already on the last futures.io (formerly BMT) webinar, this is a done deal for NT8.

Mike

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)
Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.
