if (Instrument.MasterInstrument.InstrumentType == InstrumentType.Stock); <Select TD AMERITRADE>
if (Instrument.MasterInstrument.Name == "AAPL"); <Select Interactive Brokers> (due to low variable commissions on high $ value stocks) OR say if (Instrument.MasterInstrument.Compare(newPrice, Close[1]) >$200 <Select Interactive Brokers>
if (Instrument.MasterInstrument.Name == "DELL"); <Select TD Ameritrade> (due to low fixed commissions on low $ value stocks).
if (Instrument.MasterInstrument.Name == "CL"); <Select Interactive Brokers>
if (Instrument.MasterInstrument.Name == "FDAX"); <Select AMP>

Completely agree, and hope this is in NT8.

On a somewhat related note (kind of), I also hope we can finally drive each chart and DOM with a user-specified service/broker/feed, and not rely on some behind-the-scenes decision that we cannot control or manipulate the way we want it.

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)

Hmm... It would be good if NT8 would have the version compiled to work with Mono (allowing both Apple and Linux machines to run it) Although I suppose some commercial controls and compiler they use may be the problem here.

Hi Guys

There is one very important tool that NinjaTrader never introduced and its the
Workstation tracking+global tracking cursor.

Here is a video which explains this vital tool.

I'll appreciate it immensely if it'll be added as an indicator or as integral part of the platform.
Thank you.

Try the 'Global CrossHair Cursor' (Ctrl+G) in NinjaTrader. The implementation is slightly different, as you have to select the function in every chart you want to be affected. I do wish NT had the option to have the cursor be stationary, and only move it upon clicking on a new location on the chart. Right now the cursor moves just by moving the mouse, most of the time that is more annoying then useful.

Exactly,more annoying than useful.
They should impliment the exact tool tradestation use.
To make it so the line or cross hair on larger time frames dont make smaller Time frames go crazy or fly all over.
To move it around with the arrow keys.

Ability to overlay strategy results graphs (real, backtest, optimization) on top of a chart (using % charting or a separate axis). Hugely beneficial as a visual strategy analysis tool. Alternatively, overlay the chart in the Strategy Analyzer Graphs window (as a line chart).

In Linux one would be able to compile the kernel for Ninja and trading needs. The O.S. fine tunned to this exact need. It would be the fastest version compared to any other O.S. installation with the same hardware configuration.

Haven't had time to read the whole thread, but surely there has been a vote for... toggle all drawn objects on and off charts. Even just to see how pure and pretty they look without all that indicr@p I cover them with!
