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.

-- Big Mike

Hi @NinjaTrader thanks for response
Some order or a color palette for dropdown I.E. when right clicking a line and selecting
properties>color> the dropdown is a mismosh of colors in alphabetical order would rather see colors
matched more appropriately....IE reds and blues and greens together.
2nd request is to have the ability when right clicking a drawn item.. in this example a lines properties to attach to it's
matching micro(sorry if wrong terminology) chart
IE placing a line or any drawing tool on a 6E chart..right clicking selecting properties>attach to ...your only options are the current chart or all 6E charts...Great but I
wish to be able to place this same line onto the M6E chart.
Is this possible?
Thanks

I hate to say no twice in a row

Sorry, both of these requests are not changes we made with NinjaTrader 8.

Allow offsets for the BUY and SELL buttons

For example on Chart Trader allow a property to be added to each type of buy/sell button which sets a +ve or -ve offset for the order price. Such as BUY at current BID minus 1Tick.

hyper performance options


call them hyper performance options

essentially, these are the ability (in theory) to take advantage of installation / operation tweaks easier than just going it alone and manually doing them

#1...
ability to utilize RamDisk
this can be accomplished by licensing an existing product under the hood of the current Ninja executable, and including its features on the baseline....
this would require corporate dealing with one of the vendors of these ramdisk software(s) and having them explain how they implemented such features on competing products....

or
choose one of the popular or open source versions (see the threads on futures.io (formerly BMT) regarding utilizing RamDisk and Ninja)

delineate the steps to implement, operate, backup and shutdown

let's just absorb that one, and we can discuss the next suggestion on another post.

key benefit
adding more system Ram, and assigning at least 8GB for sole use by Ninja would do wonders to eliminate both poorly written code (indicators, third party indicators and such) as well as expedite recovery from run-aways that spool through memory needlessly.

use these features in conjunction with an SSD and no worries over performance and data lags, and massive data bursts (that occur around news events)

@NinjaTrader Will NT8 officially support the IB Gateway?
I get it working with NT7, but it's more like a hack. I would really love to have a simple not cumbersome way to connect to the IB Gateway.

Cheers
Chris

importing templates

presently if I share a template on futures.io (formerly BMT), that references 12 indicators, and the receipient machine only has 4 of those indicators installed, then somehow the template loads, but self destructs and drops reference to the remaining 8 missing indicators....

why?


why not:
1) provide simplistic utilities that first allow you to see the referenced components / indicators of the template before usage
2) prevent this destructive or self healing alteration of the template, when the condition of "not found" occurs
3) provide some notification that there are missing referneced indicators within said template

4) essentially protect the objective, concept and process instead of what happens now

@NinjaTrader have you tried running NT8 on Wine / are you planning to test for its compatibility with Wine before release?

I think there is quite a lot of people who would be interested in this "feature".

No we have not and do not have this as part of our official test plan at this time.

A program based on .Net running on Linux? Come on, what you define as " a lot" is not even remotely relevant for commercial purposes.

Just buy a PC you cheapskate.

You guys really need to give us something to chew on. Each passing day is a "sales" day lost to a competing product. I know it's not vapor ware. But even if you don't make the published release date, you are not held to scrutiny by the press like Microsoft.
