Dockable windows

As a long time TS user who's having to use NT for a third party add-on, I cannot believe that NT windows aren't dockable.

Come on Ninja, pick your game up. This is a feature that has been requested on your own forum for years.

My rants on NJ7

I dont know if this was already requested but I would like NJ to be able to attach ATM strategies to already open orders. Sometimes orders are placed with no ATM, or the order initially had an ATM but a portion of it was removed accidently or you add another order and would like to combine the orders using only one ATM so you dont have to pay twice the commission on exit. More flexability is needed in modifying TP and SL targets and for combining orders.

Also the DOM really looks archiac, somtimes keeping it stupid simple is best but the DOM is way too rigid and plain. I would recommend trying to incorporate some of the features and functionality that buttontrader has or atleast give users the ability to add customized buttons with different easily programmable functions (simular to how the strategy builder works) to modify existing orders. Examples like a button to increase the TP+10, SL-10, trigger a Trailing stop, or just whatever button a trader can think off.

There are so many different types of traders and we all trade differently. I just recommend more flexability to modify orders on the fly and the ability to customize NJ to make it feel mine.

The ability to roll up and roll down windows would be awesome. Currently I use a third party application called 4t tray minimizer and it works great for window management. It would be great if you could incorporate some of its features into the NJ platform as well.

Ohh and one of my biggest problems witn NJ is its code editor. Why is it that you can not work on two independant indicators separately and compile them separately. Why is it if you are editing and compiling one indicator, it will not let you continue unless you correct the discrepanies with an entirely different indicator. That makes no sense. When you are programming and chopping away at code and have several different indicators open trying to come up with the new holy grail, you dont want to be bothered by the discrepanies of some indicator you were chopping at. Each indicator and the compiling of itself should be completely independant of each other.

This is already implemented with different tabs in the NinjaScript Editor. The screenshot below is from the first webinar about NT8 on futures.io (formerly BMT), and if you look at the bottom of the editor (where it says CCI), there is a + sign, suggesting it's possible to open another tab:

this isn't possible from within NT because of the inter-dependency of indicators and strategies, so they're all compiled together in one go. If you want to do what you explained, you can create indicator sources in a visual studio class library referencing ninjatrader.core and compile it separately. But that has the downside of having to plop the dll into Custom\bin and restarting NT between every test not to mention the whole VS (or sharpdevelop even) setup..

Maximazing of individual panels

In my wish list for NT8 is a button on each panel in the chart that will maximize the panel to the full size of the chart, then the same button reverses it to the size and place held before. If you want to compare two panels, clicking on each button will split the chart in half (or one third for three panels, etc). Again, clicking on each panel button will revert that panel to the size held before.

Presently, in order to enlarge or maximize a lower panel when you want to examine close details of the indicator, you have to go through the lengthy process of holding the edge and pull it up. This becomes clumsier if you have to deal with several panels. Then, one must reverse the process to go back to normal.

Thank you for the opportunity to bring up ideas to the forum

If you right click on the right side of a panel, there will be a menu item "Maximize". Select this and the panel will take up the full screen of the chart window. You will then notice an "<>M" control at the bottom right of your chart that you can use to cycle through all panels on your chart.

MY VOTE

definitely i vote for workspace options and trend line when you drew a trend line have option not to show in all time frame


bluemele View Post
1. Option to scroll vertically without touching the cntrl key. By touching the chart and moving it around.

2. Trendlines to match up on all timeframes if you select 'global' as they currently do not.

3. Workspace options to stick multiple windows within one workspace.

4. Tick Data option to store on computer without 3rd party workarounds.

5. Customization of chart trader window. Ability to remove options, drag-n-drop items in different locations.

6. Better drawing tools, like grabbing the fibs or trendling anywhere and moving it or deleting it.

I realize this is asking a lot and I already love my Ninjatrader.

Breakout slippage as a separate statistic in the PnL reports.

Mike

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)

The instrument manager needs a global option to update splits/dividends.

Any multi-instrument strategy quickly becomes cruel and unusual punishment when you have to click through every instrument one by one (I would assume that this could be fixed with about 15 mins of programming....)

Just a GUI request...

During backtesting I tend to work in the strategy analyzer a lot and find it distracting to have to alt-tab to the NT control panel to view progress and abort tests.

It would be nice to see a progress indicator for backtests in the strategy analyzer itself and not just in the control panel. Maybe a global progress bar in all windows?

It would also be nice to be able to abort a test from within the strategy analyzer itself - perhaps as simple as just clicking on the Run Opt button again to stop the test.

I'm a lifetime license holder and consider NT7 one of the best investments I've ever made.

All in all - a fantastic program and I can't wait for version 8. Keep up the great work!
