Cannot believe how Ninja 8 locks up when I ask for more volume data. And I mean locks-up!!! Unfortunately I own two lifetime licenses. Waited so long for N-8 and now I am very disappointed!!!

I turned N-8 off and used my TOS account. So frustrated with the lock-ups I was experiencing. Last night after market close, I looked deeper into exactly what indicators I was employing. Now I wonder IF it was a custom indicator I was using that was throwing off the platform. Will investigate and get back to the thread.

The lock-up issue was solved - it was not a problem of Ninja 8. It was definitely a problem with a new indicator I purchased. Without that particular indie on my charts all flows smoothly!!!

Now, back to trading my Ninja 8. Best to all.

Two reasons:
Very intuitive
Because of FatTail indicators

In my 10 years as a series 7 broker and now trading for ten years for my own account, I've experienced no service like the Ninja professionals. Simply put: They deliver first class help when I am in need and their response time is almost instant.

For software, difficult to compare software like Trade The Plan. I have found no volume indicator like the various that TTP offers for both minute and ticks charts. I especially like trading the "Narrow Range, Churn, and Extreme" bars along with the very effective messages I can setup for cell and email notices.

Very best to all!!!

Why I use Ninja Trader?

TRADE THE PLAN Indicators -- mostly

And other indicators -- some custom made and some bought...


I also use Jigsaw -- but I use Jigsaw Daytrdr Platform DOM which is great also...


1) How long have you been using NinjaTrader?
Don't remember -- since forever....

2) What are your favorite features of NinjaTrader?
meh.... custom software indicators from other vendors

3) What are some must-have deal breaker features in NinjaTrader that you could not do without?
None really - other indicators from other people really. But it doesn't

4) Do you use NinjaTrader in simulation mode only, or do you place live trades with it?
LIVE

5) Are you a discretionary trader or an algorithmic trader? How does NinjaTrader help you with this?
DISCRETIONARY -- MatLab is better for Algo

6) How easy/hard was it for you to learn to use NinjaTrader?
EASY

7) How do you rate NinjaTrader's customer service/support, assuming you have needed to use it?
REALLY REALLY REALLY REALLY REALLY GOOD

8) Do you believe NinjaTrader is competitively priced?
Meh yea sure whatever -- it is the other indicators that are best -- not Ninja Trader itself

9) How do you rate the community support that exists for NinjaTrader?
Pretty good

1) Using NinjaTrader for 5yrs before that I used ProRealTime
2) What are your favorite features customisable time frames
3) What are some must-have deal breaker features in NinjaTrader that you could not do without? - Volume charts
4) I use NinjaTrader for live trades only - when I'm done I switch to global sim mode before shutting down just to prevent overtrading - it's a good warning alert as you cannot go to sim mode if you have any open positions which is esp useful if trading several intruments
5) Am discretionary trader simple works
6) Relatively easy learn to use NinjaTrader plenty webinars and vids online
7) How do you rate NinjaTrader's customer service/support, assuming you have needed to use it. 7/10 as most issues are exchange related and not really platform.
8) Do you believe NinjaTrader is competitively priced? - Yes Lifetime license a no brainer
9) How do you rate the community support that exists for NinjaTrader? - Good generally find its the same requests and issues that crop up time again and are open to taking onboard future bells n whistles
