It should, and if it's not working, it should not be to hard to program something in NinjaScript.

philip , a programmer would need to know more of the technical aspects of the device to confirm ... unfortuantly I wasen't able to find any technical info besides that its connecting via USB on their website.

These devices tend to simulate key strokes. I don't know much about the NT7 single key trading system, but if there is a key stroke which accomplishes this task, these are likely to work for that application. May need something to translate the keyboard keystroke into NT7 keystrokes. But that is it.

Your problem is: as first step you must self create a keyboard design with your own key layout and a description per Key, what you well do, when its pressed... what well you see on the screen, in a infobox, in a dialog,..

With this its posssble to create a detailed request to realize a NT7 strategy as "connector" to your Keyboard.
While I have here a vendor state, i can only say: For more informations and/or request you can send me a PM.


CH... i think you can also use this "german" linfo link... is a german provider of Trading-Hardware with a own (proffesional) TradingKeyboard portfolio...

Dont use KeyStrokes... is not secrure... a hard programmed API-Interface to use your LOM and a possible SymbolSelect inside a nice little strategy, this is here the best solution

thanks for answering timetrade.

actually i dont need a large keyboard like the one shown on the page your link is directing me.

what i would like to have is a "simple" 1 push order executing keypad.

what i am thinking about (for the beginning) is, to give a bit more concrete example

1 button for buy market 1 contract
1 button for sell market 1 contract

1 button for buy market 2 contracts
1 button for sell market 2 contracts

1 button for breakeven position

They give something called "MacroWorks", so you won't need some NT custom add-on. They also have a SDK, so it will be usable.
@philipp, FYI, I think I can write I'm an "experienced programmer".
