  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

Am a very heavy Tradestation user. However there are few limitations on the TS platform in terms of few things on Order Flow hence all my new stuff is on Ninja.

Have setup Ninja7 and in the process of Ninja8 cut over in next few months. Currently running both and will continue to run both till End of Ninja7.

Must say the response from Ray @NinjaTrader and Support staff of Ninja has been phenomenal for me. I need support if stuff I look into ... does not seem to work. Also troubleshooting and Phone and screen shares has been great with support staff.

Also I think other than platforms/languages such as R-Python & it's likes...there is some very savvy stuff one can do with Ninjatrader and can also duplicate many of the stuff done with R/Python if having a great developer.

Hence writing again on this thread. Have seen Ninjatrader in action and also seen how responsive support can be. Thnx Ninja.

cheers n best.

Been live on Ninja 7. It's the direct licence where stops need to be managed and does not have Stop loss. Not a licence for the faint of heart. Clarifying Direct does not have OCO functionality. Stops can always be put in after.

Had it on Sim for 2months serious watching before Live since 1month. Its setup on a PC with 7monitors..multiple charts.no issues...

I have had a feel for ninja however for last 2 years whenever I was evaluating a OF tool. I must thank Ninja for allowing me to do that..without any red tape. I would not arrived at my Of tools without this..

Ninja is super easy and intuitive

Best feature I like is the way they handle bid..ask. it helps me in order flow.I do not have that on my TS platform hence wiil use ninja and ts till I trade. I also have serious of on ts which does not need bid..ask.

Support is super responsive. Have had support for critical questions for me answered on saturday and sunday. If had any issues have reached out to ninja thread or DM Ray @NinjaTrader and it got resolved. Thanks Ray.

Dom is super easy. I use market in market out so it's never been a problem.

The best feature since I have platform running even if not in front of it...one click to go from live to sim. I do this as am in earthquake country and do not want a bunch of keyboard strokes pressed at time if one strikes. Lol on a diff note I took few great trades and realized shucks was on the sim mode..but that was user error. I trade mostly 1st 2 hrs or so hence to move it to sim when I leave is most imp without hassle of logging out and log back in.

Anyways ninja feature I do not use any. Since am interested in OF all my indicators use inherent functionality of Ninja.

Ninja community. I have not needed to use as I get info from here itself and or reach out to Ray or Ninja support.

I have compared and constantly compare rythmic feed and current cqg continuum which i use with ninja. Results are solid. No feed issues or platform freezes. Was not there for Aug timeframe trades but saw it handled fomc in Oct like a charm where I was live.

Ninja 8. I am not sure if I need to move or probably have not delved into it. Since am a dinosaur I am happy with 7. I get ms timestamps for my TS and ninja7. If there is something more I can glean into in the hft world then I may move to 8..else am good. Else an OF tool I use tells me to move.

So basically am a satisfied ninja cust. Am in process of setting up 2nd ninja platform though from a backup perspective. But wouldn't have done it if did not give value.
