Regarding backtests and optimizations and the result set generated, please cache all the tabs at the time the cycle is run.

Right now, if I select one run (say line 1 in the result table), it has to re-run the entire backtest cycle. For some of the stuff I am doing now, this can take several minutes (ABC hives). It is incredibly annoying.

Would be really great if the results for each tab were simply cached somewhere to prevent the entire cycle from having to be re-run each time you move from one result to another.

Mike

Other direction - do not cache ANYTHING, write stuff into files. Keep memory consumption lower, please. THEN once done load the files into a proper database for processing

Working on something lik ethat now - I want a lot more stats than ninja gives me, so we are adding logging code to the strats, so we can then analyze them in SQL AS.

Yes, file cache. It doesn't have to be cached in memory, just cached in a way to prevent the entire run from having to be repeated.

In general, do NOT make backtests IN Ninja, as well as optimizations. Start another piece of software (transpatrently in the background if you ahve to).

Allow acktests and optimizations to be executed from the command line Makes it a LOT easier to build a workflow around it. Now, particuarly due to Ninja's very "interesting" attempts to be smart: command line means Powershell, not some third party stuff, not some arcane thigns noone else has used for 10 years. Powershell.

This would allow for easy distribution of backtests and optimizations over multiple machines

Unlimited levels of depth on the DOM configurable per instrument, right now 10 is common perhaps one day more will be.

BM,

Right click on the DOM window & click Properties. Go to General Tab, Number of price rows. And you can change the number of rows needed. I'm not sure if what you mean by depth is equivalent to no. of rows. If so, this is what I've discovered for NT7.

By the way, off topic for a while. I'm new to this forum & after reading up more threads, I think I would like to support this forum by being an elite member. I don't have a pay-pal account. How can I register as an elite member? Is it safe to pay by credit card?

Currently we can call an ATM from a strategy which is nice. But, what I'd like to do from Chart Trader is define an ATM and be allowed to select a custom script that manages the trade after entry. Example: I use Chart Trader and have an ATM with a stop and target defined. Further what I want to do is have a trailing stop based on a moving average of some kind. So, I create a script that moves the stop every bar based on the moving average and when I set up the ATM, I select this trailing stop script.

That is something I've wanted for a very long time as a way of doing something that I want to do as opposed to what the predefined things that the ATM interface allows.

Hope that makes sense.

Mike

@NinjaTrader

The highest granulation time frame which NinjaTrader currently offers is up to second. NinjaTrader will round it off to the second even if your data feed provides say milliseconds granularity.

I would like to see NT support higher granularity than seconds.

If you use any type of tick built bar , the bars can change if you refresh or reopen a chart.

After the close , if you try to go over trades you took that day, the setups you saw during the trading day may not show up.

I'm just a simple man trading a simple plan.

It is my understanding that Ray has already said NT8 will use the 'ticks' timestamp. Not to be confused with market data ticks, timing in ticks is an extremely precise way of measuring time. It will then be up to the data feeds to improve their resolution.

Two buttons to cycle back and forwards through trades on a chart - i.e. press button for forward trade and the chart jumps to the next trade entry. This would be a huge time saving on large charts compared to going to the trades tab to see the time and going back to the chart to manually scroll to that time.

This is a request for a feature already offered by TradeStation.

I am talking about a feature which should be available for all bar types offered


(1) TickVolume

Ninjatrader 7: Tickvolume is only known for tick charts, as the tick volume of each bar is identical with the period. To determine tick volume for any other bar type, I would need to write an indicator that adds a 1-tick bar series to determine tick volume.

Wishlist for NinjaTrader 8: Have tick volume ready for each bar as an alternative to volume. Quite important for FOREX data!


(2) Upticks & Downticks

Uptick volume and downtick volume can be used in a similar fashion as bid and ask traded volume. My cumulative delta indicator calculated from uptick and downtick volume yields near-identical results to the real cumulative delta coded by GOMI, which relies on genuine bid and ask traded volume. Many other volume related indicators rely on uptick and downtick volume.

Uptick and downtick volume can be easily calculated from any data feed that supplies tickdata for price and volume data.

NinjaTrader 7 : Upticks & Downticks are not available. Again an indicator would need to be coded that loads a secondary 1-tick bar series.

Wishlist for NinjaTrader 8: Have upticks and downticks available for each bar.

For bars built from ticks that should be easy. To have that property available for minute bars and option is required to build minute bars from ticks.


(3) Option to Build Minute Bars from Ticks


This would be a new bar type built from ticks. Required for calculating tick volume, upticks, downticks, uptick volume and downtick volume.


(4) Uptick Volume & Downtick Volume

NinjaTrader 7: Uptick and downtick volume is not available.

WIshlist for NinjaTrader 8 : Volume associated with upticks & downticks should be available for each bar type.


Calculating tick volume, upticks, downticks, uptick volume & downtick volume would slightly increase the CPU load, when connected to a real-time feed, but I think that it would be worth the effort.

I think NT needs some venture capital so they can get going on NT8

I wonder if they will target some institutional buyers with NT8, and not just retail?

Add me in on that. Also applies to the other methods like Close() and CreateATMStrategy() and all the others. Possibilities would be endless...

Hi,

Would be great to be able to have a panel (showing 3- 4 text lines) in the chart to show Alerts of just that charts related alerts (instead of the one alerts panel for all charts).

The inability to be able to select the broker in a strategy is becoming an increasing problem in the multi-broker license. I raised this point earlier in this thread but believe it is worth repeating with the hope of getting it addressed. One of the most important functions in multi-broker trading software should be to make it easy to facilitate trade across multiple brokers but this important feature is missing.

Currently I employ a number of ATM strategies specific for 7 instruments triggered with buy/sell buttons. Some of these instruments use Interactive brokers as the broker and some AMP and I'd like to add more brokers to further spread capital. As I employ a master swing trading portfolio strategy with equities an integral part of this strategy, I also need to place equities trades through TD Ameritrade.

The only way to do this now is to manually select the broker account on the chart in the general section. So this means that you have to do this each time on every chart once you setup. Plus the ATM strategy defaults to the first broker you connect to. Here is an example on oil which employs 2 distinctly separate ATM strategies using buttons to trigger the trade based on a plethora of delta/swing based probability tests designed specifically for oil.



The trader should be able to direct this automatically, for example:

1. A stock or future:

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>

So as soon as the buttons are pushed then the trade should go through whichever broker is contained in the strategy for that instrument.

This is also important for risk management purposes as the PFG debacle highlights the need to spread funds around to different brokers.

2. Leverage test

The other point is an ability to perform a leverage test prior to trade. For example if you use 5 brokers and the one you select in the strategy does not hold sufficient capital to be able to support the maintenance margin plus a cushion on an overnight trade then you should be warned prior to trade or have the ability to change the broker. E.g if the account at Broker A does not have sufficient capital then it should default to the account at Broker B for example.

Cheers
DJ

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.

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.

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!

1. The ability to save selfdefined colors.

2. The ability to see which template is loaded.

You can customize indicator colors, then right-click and hit 'save as default' right now in NT7.

Hi Mike,

yes, but this is not what I mean:

I don´t want to set a default color for an indicator, but rather save a selfdefined color by itself (for further use with other indicators, lines, etc ...).

You mean a custom RGB color? I think you can do this using the default Windows color picker, it has option to save to a 'square' on the bottom left of the RGB wheel/picker.

That is the problem.
You can define a color, but not save it.
As far as you close and reopen the window, your color has gone and the square is white again ...
Have I overlooked something?

Wish List is short - be able to copy a chart and paste it inside current workspace, or inside another workspace, instead of saving a template.


I agree with this simple request.
My other request is to be very stable. It currently freezes up too often.

allow the user to change the background color to ANY colour they want, rather then using a set of standard colors. Yes I know you can add an indicator, but thats pretty pointless when there should be a way to enter a RGB color.

@tellytub
You can already do it by typing the rgb colours into the colour field (instead of selecting it). Try:
26, 24, 21
you should see a shade close to black but not exactly

To be able to save only the indicator settings. Now we can only do it by saving a chart template. This way we could have many different settings for the same indicator saved.

A couple of requests:

- the ability to add a trailing stop AFTER a position has been opened.

- ability to use NT with SQL Server 2005/2008 Express, instead of the compact one.

- multi-tabbed windows/workspace like the one in Tradestation/MC, for quick view changes.

Thanks

Minimum Chart Scale Divisions on the Y Axis

I would like to have the option to set a minimum chart scale size.

The problem I have is with a workspace with a number of charts, some of which are small sized. If the chart contains a low number of bars and the market is quiet the high low range is low, but the bars are scaled to fit the window. That makes the fluctuations look bigger than they are.

It would be great if I could set the minimum chart y scale divisions to say 1, 2 or 5 points on the ES for example. This can be done in Investor RT and it is very handy to maintain perspective on volatility.

With this option the chart would still resize automatically, but it would not zoom in too much when the market range is low.

In Investor RT this option is called custom markings, Notice that the y axis scale major and minor divisions can be selected by the user.



Logarithmic Indicator Scale

Please add an option to have zero as the lowest value for an indicator. Try viewing volume on a minute chart with range set to automatic and the type to Logarithmic. You will notice that half of the panel is wasted as the zero line is drawn in the middle of the panel. Since volume is never below zero, this is wasteful of space.


Note - there is an indicator that adds this capability, but it would be better to have the option built into NT.

I would like an option to edit the title bar text of a chart to help find the chart I want when I have a number open.

For example, I may have two 5 min charts for ES with different indicators. These will have the same title bar text and that means that I can know which is which when I click on the task tray to see a list of open windows. If I could append some user text, I would not have this problem.

Hello,

I sure do hope the NT developers have a look at this thread:



At one point Big Mike suggests that we copy what we find in that thread to this one.

The activity on that thread has slowed, which prompted me to make this post now. I am not sure if the whole thread can be boiled down, except to generally say that it many users find it really boosts the heck out of performance.

Perhaps such technology could be included in NT 8, and/or develpers could look 'under the hood' to find out why there is a performance boost and remove bottlenecks associated with this.

Separately, one user at least noted that a third party (paid) indicator was causing a lot of his performance problems. It would seem to make sense then to offer some kind of profiling, so that users could determine what indicators were using up the most resources.

Thanks,
-Bob

You can already do it - just change value of Label property of your Data Series window (where the instrument name is)

I like to use charts with a black background and one of my constant annoyances is the fact that I can't change the style of the cross hair cursor. It's there to help, but it gets in the way by being too dominant.

It pure white, whereas I would like it feint grey, just visible so that I can see the indicator values in relation to price bars, without being distracted.


I would also like for the cross hair cursor to turn off when the mouse is off the chart. Moving the mouse over the charts often leaves an orphaned cross hair cursor, which is also distracting.

It would be super cool if the cross hair cursor could be turned on and off with NinjaScript and by a keyboard short cut. I know that CTRL-R and CTRL-Q can toggle cursor styles. I would like to turn on or off the cross hair cusror by holding down the space bar. So that the cursor is on only when the spacebar is down.

This may seem a bit OCD inspired, but I want to concentrate only on analysing the market when I am scalping. In a fast market a few seconds of distraction can mean the difference between success and failure.

NT has a well thought out UI on the whole, but one area where the ball has been dropped is the process of changing instruments.

We can create groups of instruments in the Instrument Manager, but you can't use those groups to change instruments on a chart unless the instrument is in the default group.

On the charts instrument menu, the only group visible is the default group and likewise on the toolbar button for changing instruments.

In the Data Series menu, you can see the groups, but you can't change the primary data series and that defeats the use of groups to organise instruments.

It is necessary to create a new chart in order to change the symbol. No other charting application I have seen makes it so hard to switch between symbols and it would be great if this omission was remedied in NT.

I agree that this can be improved. But changing the instrument is petty simple: when the chart is active, just type the instruments full name e.g. FDAX 12-12 or ES ##-## and press enter, that's it...

Lets say you have written an indicator, MyCustomIndicator, that contains references to the system indicators SMA and EMA.

If you select MyCustomIndicator and try to export that on its own, then the export fails with the message "Error compiling sources. Please check your logs".

If you also add one system indicator used by the custom indicator (say @SMA) and attempt to export the indicator, then a dialogue box lists all of the other referenced system indicators and there is a prompt to include them automatically.

This prompt to automatically include referenced indicators should be what happened in the first example.

Completely open up and document the custom bar API... Its already there, and many hacks have been done, but it undocumented and unsupported...

Remove restriction barring add(timeframe) only in initialize... custom bar type would allow me to do what I want here, because I could do it in bar creation (I think)

Too late for NT8, but here is my early request for NT9. I've been asking for it for about 4 years already

Support CUDA/OpenCL GPU optimization since everyone will be consumed with automation by then, might as well do it ten times faster than CPU's can. Currently only Matlab and R can use OpenCL/CUDA, but by the time NT9 comes out I imagine many more trading platforms will support it.

25-GPU cluster cracks every standard Windows password in <6 hours | Ars Technica





opencl - GPU vs CPU performance for common algorithms - Stack Overflow


Stackoverflow
GPUs are highly specialized hardware designed to do a small set of tasks very well and highly parallelized. This is basically arithmetic (particularly single precision floating point math although newer GPUs do quite well with double precision). As such they're only suited to particular algorithms. I'm not sure if sorting fits that category (in the general case at least).

More common examples are pricing of financial instruments, large amounts of matrix maths and even defeating encryption (by brute force). That being said, I did find Fast parallel GPU-sorting using a hybrid algorithm.

Another commonly quoted example is running SETI@HOME on an Nvidia GPU but it's comparing apples to oranges. The units of work for GPUs are different (and highly limited) compared to what CPUs ordinarily do.

When adding indicators to a chart it would be nice to sort by most recently added / changed. Trying to find a new indicator when it is named something totally different than the zip file downloaded is a pain.

CUDA would be great for training Machine Learning systems.

There will plenty of 2xGPU core's on a single slot, and probably 4xGPU cores on a single slot in a couple years. Scale to four PCIe slots with 2x or 4x per, and you have a beast. And I would be one of the ones that builds such a beast for backtesting and simulation environments. And of course to play

I've been following your ML/SVM's, since you are using an external library, is it possible to use Matlab or R to leverage the existing GPU acceleration in Parallel Computing Toolbox or R's GPU library?

I don't want to go off-topic so I will re-ask my question in your main Support Vector Machine thread:

Too late for NT8, but here is my early request for NT9. I've been asking for it for about 4 years already

Support CUDA/OpenCL GPU optimization since everyone will be consumed with automation by then, might as well do it ten times faster than CPU's can.

Why too late? I actually kinda assumed that if NT could benefit from GPGPU processing then that would be a really high priority considering it would basically blow away any other retail trader platform and maybe some institutional platforms. And the more granular you get with tick data the more GPGPU processing becomes necessary or at the very least more overclocked cores.

I dream of the day when I can backtest multiple instruments over a decade of data and get the results back in a couple minutes or less.

I am making assumptions that NT8 already has a finalized feature set and framework in place, and that changing the backtesting engine would not be considered. But you can ask Ray @NinjaTrader in the webinar Monday, only he knows for sure.

I think it would be a nice feature to add to Ninjatrader ...the few indicators that try to simulate a spread trade just doesn't do the program justice...

Portfolio backtesting.

Be able to run 1 strategy on many stocks and get individiual results, then like TS push the selected results to a new compiled strategy.

And also be able to sent the total results of the backtest to excel for analysis.

When I do a "Reload all historic data" it appears that the ...db\cache remains unchanged to a certain extent. I noticed this when using a custom bar type for quite some time and then modified the code for it to produce a different behavior. The change worked properly for the current days but when looking at historic data I noticed that at some points in the past it didn't. I reloaded all historic data but no change in behavior. So, I figured I must have something coded incorrectly and worked on that for a while and finally gave up. The other day it occurred to me that I should try clearing the ...db\cache folder and see what effect that has. I cleared the cache and the custom bar type worked properly over 31 months of historic data. So, that tells me that all those times of reloading all data did not properly clear/reload the cache data. So, I'm suggesting for NT8 that a reload of historic data also clear cache or at least let it be an option to clear the cache.

1. Currently when testing an auto strategy in simulation vs market replay you do not get the same results because market replay does not use the simulation algorithm to book the trades. That kind of makes market replay almost useless to me. I would like to have the same simulation logic applied to trades booked in market replay. If it's not possible due to variable replay speed, could you make it available only at 1X speed?

2. Market replay control window can be closed with CTRL+F4. Once it's closed you cannot reopen it because market replay stays connected. I could offer ways to avoid that but I think this control should be redesigned from the ground up.

Thanks,
Tim

Optimization / fitness: If , will not be incorporated in NT8, I'd like to urge NT to reconsider.

Thanks and please do let us know.

improvements in the data storage aspect of Ninja

the ability to replay data by simple doing a reload of data files, so that if one either looses internet connection or is not connected, he can download prior (historical) data, and capture it (save for replay)

easier transition from workspace to workspace, similar to how other trading applications (eSignal, TradeStation, etc) do their workspace and paging inbetween them

NT has really proven to be invaluable and superior to other platforms, and a thin enough application as not to pose signigicant overhead on the operating systems of a number of computers, unlike the other trading platforms that so many of us used to use....(names withheld to prevent product embarassment)

keep up the good work NT

here's a thought

buy, sell, short, close, flat, +1 (point), -1 (point) BUTTONS

now, guess where?

on the Market Analyzer columns selection list

simply put, allow the capability to trade, and manage positions from the MA

cheers,

and good trading to you!

Not sure whether this has been mention before:


Currently strategy builder and market analyzer can only access plots containing DataSeries objects.

When using trendfilters, you would typically make them accessible via a BoolSeries (trend up or down) or an IntSeries (uptrend = +1, neutral trend = 0, downtrend = -1). I have coded a number of indicators that have those BoolSeries and IntSeries exposed in a way that they can be accessed by a manually coded strategy.

However, IntSeries and BoolSeries cannot be accessed by the strategy builder and the market analyzer. I therefore often had requests to convert the IntSeries and BoolSeries into a transparent plot in order to allow accessing the trend information.

It would be better to allow direct access of BoolSeries and IntSeries via the Market Analyzer and Strategy Builder.

please consider allowing a date range, instead of just a single date

please also allow for a checklist, that populates or continues as a super function (the actual download being the function); that allows for, say check boxes on the Instrument List (default) for contracts selected, to be downloaded with the specified date ranges...

how's that?,
one idea,
and another better idea than the first....

cheers to an excellent trading platform, that accomplishes just so many tasks that's its amazing!

Improve performance graphs

1. Display exact dates (when hovered over, for example) on daily net profit bars
2. Fix efficiency graphs bug where the values can be over +- 100%. Just fix it, don't ask users to debug it for you, NT!
3. Explain somewhere what MFE, MAE graphs mean and how to use them. What patters should one look for/avoid, etc.
4. Monthly/weekly net profit - display exact date ranges on the bars (on hover?)

Tim.

Add the ability to create a Market Analyzer with multiple time frames or intervals in a vertical column
similar to TradeStation (see screenshot).

What does that column do other than say 5 Min?

Attached is a better screenshot I found for TradeStation. By listing the intervals vertically,
I would be able to group the instruments as seen in the screenshot and I can see at a glance
if certain criteria are met on each time frame. In this example ADX "peak" values
are listed.

With NT, I have to create a separate column for each time frame (horizontally) and
that means creating 7 columns (one column for each time frame) which doesn't
leave much room for anything else. By "grouping" the instruments by interval, it leaves
room for add columns for other things like values for RSI, OB/OS values of another
indicator, ATR or moving average, etc..

User controls Mouse wheel operation. The ability to switch between ...
A) Expand & Contract Bars on Chart, with last Bar (nearest to right Y-scale) remaining fixed (instead of having to click and drag the x-scale.
B) Move chart data left and right (as is currently in NT7)

NT7 stores the defaults for data series in a way that is unlike other charting applications, but not in a good way. This should be improved and here are some examples.

1) Data Series default settings

An OHLC chart should not change to a candle stick chart when the interval of the chart is altered.

Lets say that I set up a 15 min chart (A) as a candle chart. On another occasion, I set up a separate OHLC 30 min chart (B) for the same instrument.

If I change chart A from 15 min to 30 min, the chart style changes from candle to OHLC and that was not my intention. I wanted to see a OHLC chart with a longer time frame. In addition, I might also have to change the chart style and the up / down bar colours every time I change the interval.


2) Changing time frames.

Loading enough data relative to the interval of the chart

Lets say that I have a 5 min chart with 4 days of data and I want to look at a longer time frame to look at support and resistance levels, so I change the interval to 30min. I find that I have four days of 30 min data. My intention was to see the bigger picture on a longer time frame, but the chart does not load enough data so I have to go to the data series properties and change the settings.

Four days of 5 min data is fine for that chart, but I might want 31 days of 60 min data.

Summary

To make NT8 more pleasant and intuitive, careful thought is needed about which settings relate to the chart or to the instrument. I want to think about the markets, rather than the quirks of the charting application.


These changes would make NT8 work as the trader intends and increase their love for your product. Let the unique features of your product be good points and you will have happy users who are sticky customers!



Thanks

This is my first post to this discussion, but use Ninja Trader and would love to get to know how to code better. I wish there was a way to modify code in the Ninja Script wizard while still being able to create code using the wizard.

I use Chart Trader a lot as a discretionary trader. I use ATM to place my exit orders during entry, but then have to manually move them to the place where I want them. Ie: at a certain ATR away from price, or at the previous pivot high/low, or trailed at the lowest low or highest high of the last "X" number of bars.

I propose the ATM manager allow me to code my own trailing exits after a manual entry and list the template in the ATM Strategy pull down menu.

I just noticed that MWinfrey asked for this in post 306. Oh well, then, I second it.

For NT8 pls make avail more "Trades" markers (colored), that the system will draw on the chart; (after execution).
Like colored markers for Short-Entry Long-Entry, & relevant Profitable Exit Non-Profitable Exit, as well as Profit-Targets, etc. Instead of (in NT7) only having "Color for executions buy" & "sell'.
That way, when going over your past trades, one can easier and more quickly identify what you actually did instead of seeing just two colors for buy and sell.
--Data Series/Trades--

1. option to download performance stats directly from broker
2. option to download each instruments commission setting from broker (& updater if we get lower rate from broker later)
3. more order types: iceberg, follow price stop/limit order
4. option to add sl/tp for: filled order without using atm

point 1 & 2 is especially helpful and logical to develop because i hate to see differences in my performance with and without correct commission setting.
just see how many questions asked about commission alone in your support forum.

sorry if any of this has been posted before. hoping to see improvements in NT8

cheers

just thinking this might be helpful too for traders:
- option to cancel order if spread > x tick

now that would help traders reduce risk getting heavy slippage during rough volatility

I wish in NT8 to include an algo that detects bracket order detection execution.
Once a trade is being made if the seller or the buyer uses a bracket order to been detected from this algo and next to doom have an extra ladder that sums the bracket orders.
This way I will now at which side are the pros and I will trade like a pro.

Ability to save Export NinjaScript dialog settings as a template: Pretty much similar UI approach to chart templates - e.g. right-click in the dialog and save / save-as which would save all options as well as selected objects. Very helpful for people that export their code often to be used on their other machines for testing, trading, optimization, or some other scenarios. Helps avoid mistakes happening while manually selecting objects or typing assembly names to export over and over.
