So to reiterate, I am very much looking forward to NT8, and I am very excited about some of the ideas Ray has mentioned he is working on (in his past futures.io (formerly BMT) webinars).
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.

No, sorry. I do software for about 210 years. This is not the team - it is management that sucks. Company management and down Project management - if they are different.
Developers do not plan autoamted testing or not, and they do not make releasep lans and most of hte features. This is project maangement that has no technical lead developer that makes sure echnological platforms are up to date (or is just cheap - the version of UI controls NInja uses is so ancient it was programmed by infragistics at the time the pyramids were built - maybe they dont want to spend a little money on good UI?) and they definitely do not do the feature and release plan.
Ninja livesi in one of the most unprofessional environments for project management i have experienced as a customer. I Know a guy that swould probably rock their world, but he htakes 2000 USD to 3000 likely for a US trip - SCRUM master, was in one of my last projects and totally redid the project management approach, got sus 10 times as fast and responsive within 2 months. THere the project mangagement had the same attitude.
This is not the developers fault, it is 100% the manaagement approach. EVEN IF the developers are incompetent - it is still management not replacing them NEVER blame the developers for what is a structural issue on team and project management.
NinjaTrader 7 does use managed code for Zen-Fire and Vision Financial Markets (Rithmic) and this is 64-bit compliant. Just make sure that in your connection settings, "Legacy API" is not checked. NinjaTrader 8 TT adapter will be managed code as we have removed the QuickFix layer and handled the FIX messaging ourselves.
The following 3 users say Thank You to NinjaTrader for this post:
1. make the line draw snap to vertical, snap to horizontal, perhaps with shift key. currently, finding a perfectly horizontal line requires using Ray or Horizontal Line, when what you really want is just a segment.
2. allow conversion of a segment to a ray, and a ray back to a segment.
3. and I repeat one already mentioned above to stress its importance, a drawn line in 1 min frame
should appear from beginning to its end in all other time frames. currently, it can disappear.
...and just to clarify my opinion, it took quite a bit to drag me away from Tradestation. Keep up
the good work NT.....
The following user says Thank You to bsheers for this post:
In all my trading I have found that the market itself is the best indicator. As such, I have two charts that I rely on that currently must be created in another platform as I haven't been able to duplicate them in NT. These charts combine up to eight tickers into a single series of candlesticks; mostly these are contrarian tickers. In NT 8 it would be an outstanding addition to simply create a chart where the user can "sum" several symbols into one and show the resulting candles. Whether this is done in Instrument Manager or directly on the chart doesn't much matter; just as long as it can be accomplished.
Happy to provide more details should there be any questions.
Thanks for your suggestion. Although not identical, you can create a multi-series indicators to derrive a single value and plot(s) it using any indicator plot type. What you can't do is plot it via a chart style.
