Will there be an option to change back to the original color scheme? The black is nice, but I like the bare bones plain style of the current NinjaTrader better. I have a strong feeling many will also feel this way.

Hi NinjaTrader,

I have a couple questions regarding the Bid/Ask/Last price and volume tick data for NT8.

This is in regards to Ray's remarks starting around 29:00 time stamp.


Will NT8 be able to recall Historic Bid/Ask/Last volume and price updates ,in their original arrival sequence, from either NT's historic data servers or the trader's data provider?


In NT7, I believe DateTime time stamps are generated locally, from the traders computer, at the time data arrives at the traders computer.


Will NT8 still generate time stamps locally?


You also showed on one slide" DateTime.Ticks(10,000 ticks in a millisecond). "

I believe Zenfire sends out time stamps with their data to the micro or nano second. However when I looked into this a year or two ago, they revealed that their timestamps were added from their own servers as the updates were processed. they were not the timestamps from the exchange. If I am wrong about this I apologize.


Even with Millisecond or Microsecond time stamps, Data from the providers can show up a couple tick updates at a time in the proper sequence. If they all get the same time stamp locally(Bid, Ask, and Last Updates), will the correct sequence of updates from the exchange/data provider be preserved for historic data being called to an indicator?


Thanks,

RJay

At this time we have planned to release NT8 with two skins, dark and light.

NT7 always uses native time stamp if provided. NT8 will work the same way.

Dynamically Create Indicators per timeframe

I wish for the ability to dynamically create Indicators for MTFs, similar to the following application:

https://futures.io/elite-circle/24875-xavmtf-debugging-optimization-thread-multi-time-frame-indicator.html#post286417

The goal would be to have a function, something like:
Indicator I = CreateIndicator(Bars[1],"SMA(21)")
or
Indicator I = CreateIndicator(Bars[1],"SMA","21")

So I would be the SMA of the 2nd bars assigned.

Of course, I would be good to dynamically create BarSets as well....

sylvestro i see you are actually in brussels me to funnily enough. im also using IB with ninja but i dont have to reboot ever maybe 6 times a year.

Try : Private Homepage for TWSStart to keep the connection open.

also check out your settings for ninja carefully.

Some remarks concerning NinjaTrader:

I used many years MetaStock. Unfortunately the last 15 years nothing has been done related to improving technical analysis tools, programming possibilities or auto-trading interface. So, I changed to NinjaTrader and Kinetick as a real time data provider. First let me say that I like it. As a fresh user I would like to make a few remarks for the attention of Mr. Deux.

NinjaTrader support at the forum can be better. Please avoid those pre-prepared answers. If you want to use them just to be sure it is known, that is OK but only together with a real answer to the mentioned problem, so please read and try to understand the problem and react to that.

One of the problems was data interruptions using the standard Kinetick real time connection. The problem was only solved on a proposition from Kinetick support to use IQFeed. Then the problem was solved. This means something is still wrong with the normal Kinetick real time connection, but I have the feeling nothing has been done. NT support loves to blame Interactive Brokers resetting the connection once every 24 hours even if you explain them this is known to me and not the problem.

I noticed a number of times missing data chunks. Most annoying is that it is always difficult to have this updated. Using reload all historical data on the chart most of the time does not cure the problem. I generally notice this looking at 2 PC's displaying the same chart.

What caused and still causes a lot of problems is the use of session templates. Range bars and Renko bars that show session breaks in the chart are terrible for indicators used. I still wonder why you need this. I want to receive the data the provider sends me nothing more nothing less with no session relation. Minimum NT should provide the possibility for a session that does not use a session, just the available data. I tried to solve it for Range and Renko bars and it works, but no help from support!

Me and more people have problems with the standard Renko bars in NT. I made a number of propositions. Please implement them. Problem with Renko bars - NinjaTrader Support Forum

What is causing me real problems is auto-trading between NT and IB. The standard available scripts are not working good. Sometimes it runs OK a number of trades but then it gets mixed up again.

In relation with auto-trading a real problem is that you cannot change any parameters of your strategy without stopping the strategy. BUT this influences the live connection with the broker, for example the stop loss and profit targets are lost. Re-starting the strategy, you are supposed to flatten the position, which is of course not the idea.

In another platform I am using the possibility to use the same strategy ID to run an auto-trading strategy, but at the same time a manual strategy, with the possibility to switch one or the other off. The manual strategy uses named trend lines that when crossed by price open or close trades. This is unfortunately not possible in NT. Please have a look at it.

If using multiple data providers, NT is looking for the symbol with the first opened provider and not finding it, it is supposed to look at the next connected provider. That is how it is supposed to work, but it simply is not.

Activating a strategy it must be possible to open a position manually to start with an active trade, because you are not watching the screen every minute.

To view a number of stocks easily, there should be a NEXT button to change to the following stock within a folder. This means that stock data should be organized in different folders and not just one for all stocks in NT now.

I am never sure importing or exporting data if the time reference is at the start or end of the bar? Exporting data can only be done 1 item at a time. Terrible of you need to export 50 different stocks.

It is good to say that perhaps using another way of connecting with your broker is a solution for some kind of problem, if at the same time you say that it is not supported.

If you trade manually, your broker gives you mostly everything you need. So, I would spent only little effort developing a manual trading interface in NT. There is more and more secure trading possible directly with your broker. That will give you more development time to work on real technical analysis, strategy and auto-trading solutions.

Since I am in favor of attributing a fixed starting amount to each stock traded with no profit or loss sharing between the stocks, I am disappointed this is not possible with the strategy analyzer in NT.

There are probably more things but this is what comes into my head for now…I have a bit the feeling that you have a team of programmers, probably doing a good job, but I am missing really basic (auto)-trading possibilities. Is there somebody in the group thinking and trying out features that are of real advantage or really needed by traders?

Thank you for your attention,
Sylvestro

Hello - With NT 8 - Is it possible to calculate - UpTicks/DownTicks/UpTickVolume/DownTickVolume - for a bar ( any bar type)? this can be done easily in other platforms but couldn't do it in Ninja - without using external frameworks to do this.

Thanks

You can do this now with a custom coded indicator however, it will only work in real-time. NT8 provides a facility to replay tick data historically so that this custom coded indicator would work as expected.

Correct, per instrument type but split between real-time and historical. Absent a user configuration, the logic will default to NT7 logic.

so, if I want to run MarketAnalyzer/or Chart simultaneously on EUR/USD via MBTrading and EUR/USD via FXCM realtime, I won't be able to do that?

Second question: NT7 gives real-time data to all brokers via sim license for charting only, but once you purchase single broker license for trading you loose all those other "charting only" brokers. So solution is to have primary NT7 with single broker license for trading and second NT7 in virtualbox with sim license for charting/backtesting only via other broker(s).

Some time ago I was told that the reason we have this nonsense is NT7 limitation. Will this limitation be fixed so we can have one feed for trading (sending orders) and other feeds (for charting only) simultaneously?

Thank you,
-A.

-A.

Your solution is one option, another is to purchase a multi-broker license which then gives you full access to all supported feeds.
