Welcome to futures.io.

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.


You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

You can create a user property that allows you to switch this on and off when running your strategy.

You can create a user property that allows you to switch this on and off when running your strategy.

// in variables

 
Code
private bool ninjaOrderTracing = false;

// in inits

 
Code
protected override void Initialize()
{ 
    TraceOrders = ninjaOrderTracing ; 
}

//In Properties

 
Code
[Description("trace orders?")]
GridCategory("Parameters")]
[Gui.Design.DisplayNameAttribute("Trace orders")]
public bool NinjaOrderTracing
{
	get { return ninjaOrderTracing; }
	set { ninjaOrderTracing = value; }
}

@nailz420, Above should do what you want or close. You still have to disable the strategy to change the param and then re-enable it, but no recompilation. You could use an alt-key if you really needed hot changes.

Travel Well

Reload historical data programmatically

Futures Edge on FIO
from NinjaTrader Major Enhancement Document

"-Reload historical data programmatically via code"

Question/Does it mean reading .ntd files via code or being able to load historical data from NT servers or both.

A developer framework library method of being able to download historical data by code (eliminating the need for Historical Data Manager manual process for historical data download) would be really desirable for the Ninjatrader add-on developers. (i.e. programmatically download 10 days of 10 minute data into instrument's .ntd file)./Regards

This refers to historical chart data not .ntd files.

SERIOUS QUESTION for Ninja Trader--- Not a request

Ray @NinjaTrader

I have a serious question for you == not a request.

Since I will have to build a new computer rig soon >> I wanted to ask you real quick do you have any feedback/suggestion on what the most powerful processor will be for NINJA 8 ?

As far as the criteria goes:

THE QUAD CORES are the fastest PER CORE

the 6 CORE processors are a little slower PER CORE but have more cache and of course 2 more processors but also make more heat

then there are the SERVER XEON processors - which are 6 CORE also not overclockable but very reliable.


Just wondering if you could give your 2 cents on that subject.

~THANKS!

Once determined the maximum number of cores your platform can effectively utilize, heat is not a consideration since it can be easily fixed with good cooling. Once you are going to spend in that kind of CPU power, buy sufficient cooling.

From my IT Manager:

NinjaTrader 8 will utilize multiple cores and hyper-threading but I find that as you stated the 6-core processors do generate quite a bit more heat and in my experience donít seem to last as long assumingly due to this. Right now a good processor would be the I7-4790K with a standard clock speed of 4GHZ and turbo up to 4.4GHz. As you stated you could overclock, this processor would easily do 5.5GHz with air-cooling and no overheating issues.

Not sure if a server based Xeon would be better as the biggest difference would be the ECC for better memory handling. This would guarantee no memory errors but typically you would pay much more for this processor to hit the same speeds as an Intel I7.
