Thanks: 41 given,
Just wondering if you ever installed the Tabmaster software and got it to work with NT7...10? I've attempted to try it but Norton keeps telling me the file "is not safe" right after the download completes and deletes the file. I've been reluctant to override Norton at this time and contacted the author.

Having plugins would be nice, so we could easily add stuff to menues for example and get code loaded on NT startup.
It would be really nice if we wouldn't have to stick everything into indicators or strategies, of course there are other ways to get code loadet into NT but that is more hacking than coding

The biggest thing for me is that the indicators from Ninja7 be compatible for Ninja 8,
What a bitch it is for those of us who dont program to have many of your indicators become useless
when the upgrade comes out. this is for me, a big downfall of Ninja.

I'd love to see a more robust optimization set of parameters for the fitness functions. Like Average Monthly Return, Lowest Monthly, Skewness/Kurtosis...and real Combined results, not just averages of the individuals, which is not reflective...things that would help me optimize to a better generalization than having to go through the exhausting in/out sample testing of walk forward (because even when you find a good walk forward set every new day, you then need to update all of your parameters daily/monthly/weekly...hardly the apex of automated trading)
A cancel data/chart load and percentage data downloaded guage
Data download freeze-ups on low timeframe charts seem to be rather common in NT7, if I load "too many" days worth of data.
I had a 88 days of data 60 minute chart of GC running. I opted to switch it to a 5minute chart, and after a minute or three the chart appeared. I then switch to a 1 minute chart, and, I am waiting for more than 20 minutes, but too frequently, it does not appear. I presume if I do not have the minute data, it is downloading it from CQG, but, I have no way to cancel it and regain control of NT, nor do I have the luxury of a percentage downloaded indicator, nor even confirmation that I have a proper incoming stream sending me the data from CQG.
True, 88 days of a 1 minute chart is rarely called for, but the 88 days is a carry over of the chart settings when it was a 60 minute chart, and a user can't always keep track of these things. I suspect many a NT user gets caught in this during normal market hours, and, then that sinking stomach feeling ensues where a restart of NT is required, and, other data is potentially lost (GOM). It happens to me, and I hate to have to restart NT for what I ideally could have 'cancelled.'
I am certain I have a proper web connection, and, since I'm purposefully doing this during labour day and the futures markets are closed, I have to assume that CQG has plenty of capacity to send me the data.
