Can we color the tabs ??

there's a request for them to add linking by tabs, so that you could use specific colors on tabs and when you click a tab of one color, then all chart windows in the workspace will switch the active tab to the tab in those chart windows that are the same color.

can be useful when you say have a bunch of the same symbols in a chart window with different views (like say different time frames).. and you have one chart window per symbol.

e.g.

chart window 1: EURUSD 5M tab (yellow), 15M tab (green), 30M tab (orange)
chart window 2: GBPUSD 5M tab (yellow), 15M tab (green), 30M tab (orange)
chart window 3: EURJPY 5M tab (yellow), 15M tab (green), 30M tab (orange)

so click on the orange tab of one chart and all chart windows show the 30M charts

no idea whether they will actually implement it though..

Order Flow Market Depth Map enhancement

Hate the fact that it has to build the map starting from when you load the indicator. I realize that historical data does not contain DOM info. Market replay data does have this information. Since the replay data is stored locally why not pull that data to build the map? As long as the user has kept the replay data current it should be able to build historical views which would be incredible.

I would like to set the chart refresh rate to a much lower delay in millseconds. My PC can easily handle 10ms!

Not sure if this has been already requested here, but it has many times in the official Ninjatrader forum too, pretty much since release. I can't trade price action on NT8, as I did on NT7 and other platforms. The feel/difference is huge when they are limiting chart updates to, at the very most, every 250ms.

So, I second this (though I think Ninjatrader are either not listening, think they know better, or unable to do it, given a ton of people have been asking for what must be a couple years now).

Utilizing Nvidia's new GPU's with Tensor cores or OpenCL, CUDA for backtesting would be great.

The ability to (volume) profile a custom range ( ie say a 10 bar consolidation on a 1 minute chart) is a bad omission on the otherwise reasonable order flow package.

Did you try the Volume Profile Drawing tool to accomplish this?

NT8 requests


1. Capability to batch-download larger Market Replay datasets, instead of one day at a time.
2. Enable capability to expose indicator parameters within strategies, in order to optimize indicator parameters from within Blackbird (Sharkindicators).
3. Native and efficient autotrader from visually programmable signals (Bloodhound, SharkIndicators).
4. A timeline you can commit to to complete each.
