  • 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.

Then you probably are a exception, or you are very luck. Everybody knows that Ninja Trader is not so stable and there is also some bugs.

I have had execution problems in the past when I was with PFG Best; And PFG blames NT and NT blames PFG. Very nice.

Yesterday I woke up and turn on my NT and then in two of my charts my indicators disappear completely; I had to put them all back again. Very nice.

A couple of white screen in the past as well. Very nice also.

One day I will come to the point where I can use CQG; As for now I still using NT for charting, but for execution I start to use Multi Charts.

i dont ever really have any stability issues with NT.. just bad indicators..

dont believe anything you hear and only half of what you see

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

It would be useful if NT8, when it is finally released, has a multilingual feature. I know many Chinese traders who want to trade the US markets because the restrictions on futures trading are so cumbersome domestically. However, besides the Chinese in Singapore and some in Hong Kong, most mainlanders do not speak English, but they are precisely the ones who are yearning most to send and trade their money abroad. If NT was available in Chinese, I don't doubt it would set new records in terms of luring hundreds of thousands of new traders who are kept away simply due to the language barrier, as NT is only in English it seems.

Additionally, it would be nice if there was a feature that automatically populated the 24/7 charts on NT7... is it only me or there is no way to do this automatically?

You would need to switch the default session template to Default 24/7 for the instruments that you trade if you desire to always have 24 hours of data displayed. This way when you automatically pull up a new chart this by default always uses Instrument settings for the session template automatically.

To do this go to Control Center->Tools->Instrument Manager->Edit the instruments that you trade by clicking the edit button after selecting the instrument. In this window you will want to change the Session template drop down to Default 24/7.

Once this is done for all instruments you trade each new chart you bring up will display 24/7 data automatically.

You can also manually set the session template per chart which overwrites this setting in the right click on the chart-> Data Series menu you will find the options to set the Session Template manually.

Yes, I know bad indicators can cause problems, but was not my case, when I had execution problems nobody knew exactly what was happen. [Like: "It could be this or it could be that and blah blah blah..."] And I had to swallow my losses.

However, white screen that I had was due to bad indicators, I just uninstalled them.

About my indicators that disappear a couple of days ago, that is a mystery and I still do not know what happened; Anyways...

Try opening up any of your remaining indicators in the Ninjascript editor and re-compiling using the F5 key or the Compile menu item. This should bring back your missing indicators.

@madLyfe,

I tend to agree about the stability. NT seems pretty good, sometimes a few hickups (mainly around NT updates, you might have to start twice), but generally bad software added upon their platform. They have exposed their system to external coders, there is only so much they can do to maintain stability at that point. I can write several indicators that will trash NT7, isn't really fair to blame NT for my errors, although I would like to at times.

I do feel they have some issues at the database layer which are causing performance issues. Some of these are clear when you are simply resetting the Replay database (Moving back in time) and it takes hours to reset. Clearly and Indexing fault or some other non-optimized SQL command. It should take seconds to delete all your old Replay Data.

So I think they own the database performance but not the stability issue...

Sever side OCOs - automated strategies choices

Sever side OCOs - automated strategies choices - basically a replacement for strategy runner. i thought strategy runner was slow before, but at least i could turn off the computer and the strategies would still run.

also a directory of automated strategies to choice from. collective2 works...but the commissions are expenisive to run the strategies.

Global crosshair groups, so that the crosshair is only global in a linked group or some other way of defining the group to which the global crosshair setting applies. With this it would be possible to have the global crosshair only be global within the same instrument charts or so...

* Sensible backtest - command line usable (Powershell) with database output. Right now I can not load 10.000 backtests runs automatically into a database to analyze them properly. Trade by trade for my own numbers like max weeks in loss etc.).

* Exportable backtes data, so I can run 10 strategies against the exact same data over time

* Extensible connectors - come on, let me introduce my own broker and data feed interfaces.

* OData interface to all relevant data so I can pull up excel and analyze my account or trades.

* Configurable sim accounts - plural. Let me set up multiple. Nice to isolate strategies there.

* Simulated trades WITHIN a strategy (not for the whole - let me open and close orders agaisnt sim in a live strategy - allows one to validate fills agaisnt ti, or tdo sim trading after a loss until a profit comes back up).

* SQL Server. Seriously. GET REAL.

* Drop the slow ORM you use and use a proper fast noe. BlToolkit or Linq2Db come to my mind - fast, slim and perfectly fit for stuff that is not a business object to start with.

* What about - attention - USING MULTIPLE THREADS FOR THE UI? Open every window with it's own message pumpt. It is VERY simple.

* Upgrade to WPF Faster drawing, a lot faster.

* Powershell. PLEASE.

* Release more often. Most important upgrade fast to .NET versions. 4.0 is MOSTL compatible with 3.5 - a 4.0 upgarde could have happened w ithin a month of the release.
