Mr. Deux-

You and the NT development team deserve heartfelt recognition for the significant improvement and enhancements in the Strategy Analyzer/Backtesting/Optimization capabilities over NT7, and even in the last versions of NT8.

Three suggestions/requests:

1. Please enable the templates saved in the Backtesting function to be accurately pre-populated in the Optimizer/WFO modules. It seems like it is designed/intended to do this, but upon closer examination, you will notice that the parameters donít carry through.

2. Please consider enabling third-party add-ons to be accessed by the Machine Learning/Artificial Intelligence module.

3. Finally, please consider enabling the capability to batch-download Tick Replay data (more than one day at a time) from third-party data providers. You can perhaps even make that available at a price for data beyond what most third-party datafeeds are able to provide as part of their standard packages.

Thank you in advance for your consideration.

Thanks, much appreciated.

On item #1, we will look into that for our next update. On items #2 and #3, I have forwarded these suggestions to our Product Management team.

Chart zoom in/out by mouse scroll wheel

I have requested this on the NT8 forums officially. Just wandered whether it was something the IO people would be interested in too. It's fairly standard on most platforms and I'm currently using a paid for 3rd party app to get the functionality. The paid for app is very good as it happens with great support but I feel this should be a native function of the NT8 platform and I would like to reduce the number of additional indicators I have running where possible.

Just in case anyone else was interested in using scroll wheel to zoom in/out without using a 3rd party add on. I bought the mouse below and it works very well, can set a macro for the scroll wheel to do whatever I want. I'm sure there are plenty of other macro mice available but not all allow you to program the scroll wheel. This one does.

TILT the CHART with the mouse on the chart dragging it UP or DOWN

I'm actually bewildered by the decision since the launch of NT8 to not enable TILTING of the chart by just placing the MOUSE on a FREE SPACE on the chart and DRAGGING the chart UP or DOWN.

I know it can be done by holding the SHIFT KEY - but it's an overhead many times.

On another note - I was wondering if Ninja8 empowers me with the ability to code and manipulate DOM (ladder) execution - so for example - I would like to create my own "ATM" strategy - say as I drag the mouse button across 6 levels of the BID side - a 2 LOT order will reside with 2 tick spacing - I shall icon the term and call it ("TICK SPRAY" and/or PIP SPRAY).

Cheers,
S

Option to cancel all unfilled orders automatically when shutting down NT8 platform... just in case there are any orders you haven't cancelled.

I believe that NT8, as well as NT7, right clicking on the Chart Trader panel brings a contextual menu with the option "Flatten everything". That should do it. That is what I use, anyway.

My understanding is that NT intends to include 3rd party indicator support for the AI Strategy Analyzer.

Can you please provide any sort of ETA for this request (identified as SFT-4056)?

Please add my vote to this request!
