I like NT for it does for me. But, it appears that this thread is going nowhere as far as ringing a bell with NinjaTrader echoing the wishes of the perhaps largest community of NT users anywhere.

It appears that NT's focus is more on their "Brokers" and "Partners" than the customers that actually use the software. Multichart and others are fast gaining on NT with addition of new features and tools while NT seems to have relegated that task to its fee-based partners.

So, another item for the wish list is for NT to at least read this wish list. Perhaps that would be a question for their next webinar.

Here is a list of the last few updates of NT with no sign of including the items on the wish list. The last 4-5 revisions are all about resolving brokers' issues.

NinjaTrader Version 7

I agree with the main sentiment but to be fair to Ninja this is an NT8 wish list and they themselves made the hard decision to effectively freeze 7's functionality level so that they could focus limited resources on 8. As per most companies sometimes the decisions are tough and will never please most of us, let alone all of us. At least they still have a fantastic product!

Agree, fantastic product. I like it and want them to stay ahead of the pack. But many of the features like a market profile, plotting events into future, etc. have been asked for quite for some times (few years) before even the NT8 news, both on futures.io (formerly BMT) and on their own forum. Watching NT's previous webinars about NT8 and freezing of NT7, as I recall NT was non-committal at best, even with regards to NT8 release.

Let's see if the November 20, 2013 NT8 release date (guesstimate) holds.

Well, having written c0.5m lines of code in my time I wouldn't put money on release dates or even use the first few releases of anybody's new Ferrari in anger. I guess I measure stable user/product time in much longer units and 7 still easily meets my needs. However, like you I sure wish them well and hope NT8 is an XP or a 7 and not a Vista or a Windows 8 ....

timing?

in one of Ray's futures.io (formerly BMT) webinars he said timing for N8 was "sometime during 2013". Does anyone have any sense if that is still the case?

My trading is like my avatar: Big, Hairy, and Full of S$&T.

Ability to create some sort of "grouping" or "folder" organization for strategies would be nice. Meaning if you are using NT for serious development, you can easily have hundreds of systems at once, and it is not easy to have to keep scrolling thru all that every single time you need to test something.

It would be better if there was some sort of organizational structure like groupings where you could assign strategies to a group, and then expand/collapse that group +/- icon next to the group heading. So 100 strategies could be put into a "Forward test only" group, and that group could be collapsed by default in the drop down box so it occupies only one line instead of 100, but easily expanded by clicking the + icon next to the header row.

Really the same logic could apply to indicators as well, and allow users to better organize their indicators.

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.

Ray will be back on futures.io (formerly BMT) for a webinar on December 11th. I have a feeling that will be covered

Super Dom target order type option.

At present using the superdom there are no options for the target orders, they are limit orders only.
I would like the ability to change that to stop orders please.
Thanks,
Ken.

Adjusting ATM strategy wile in a trade.

It could be handy if we could adjust the breakeven and auto trail settings when we are in a trade.
I like to use the breakeven setting but it is always different it depends on HL, LL, Sup/Res etc.
