NinjaTrader is a platform, not a broker. Forex spreads are determined by your broker that you connect to NinjaTrader. Future spreads and Equity spreads are industry regulated and will be identical from any futures or equities broker.

NinjaTrader 7 does not support options trading.

Mike...I guess I didn't word it correctly...this has nothin to do with brokers or trading...I just want to create a basic chart in Ninjatrader

I would like to chart an exchange traded spread in NT7...but it doesnt not seem to be possible? I know I can create a synthetic spread via the 'Spread Indicator' but I dont think NT7 will let me chart the actual spread sent down from the exchange? Is that correct? I tried to set up a symbol but doesnt seem to work?

For example...I know you have traded Crude and NYMEX has the Heat Crack which is Heat vs Crude...One could trade it synthetically off of the legs (buy offer of heat /sell bid in crude etc) or one could trade the actual exchange traded product...What I am looking to do is chart the later...

Thanks B

My fault. I have terrible headache and missed several key words in your post it seems.

No, to my knowledge NT cannot plot spreads like you are describing. I mean, "it can", it can launch the space shuttle with enough custom C# NinjaScript code, but out of the box - no. I'm not a spread trader, but my understanding is CQG Spreader and X_Trader are the standards here and have explicit spreading built-in to them.

You can plot single contract spreads depending. On IQfeed for example, there is a trick you can do with the symbol map. for example the NYH (RBOB) GASOLINE APRIL 2013 / BRENT CRUDE spread symbol is 'IRBJ13-EBJ13'
If you add a new instrument to NT with the symbol 'IRBJ13-EB' and an expiry of April 2013, it should work. a tick size of 0.001 is usually best for synthetic spread contracts in my experience

If the symbol exists and is known by your data feed, it should be visible and tradable by nt.

IQFEED spread symbols use this root/syntax..i.e. QCLV12-QCLX12...instead of the CQG format of CLES1V12....that is probably the main issue of tryin to plot something in NT the minus sign...if ya goto Iqfeeds site you can find the symbols for any and all exchange traded spreads
