NinjaTrader 7 Video Review

Hey guys!

Here is a quick video I made showing some of the biggest changes in NT7. I think most of you know I'm not very happy with the development of NT7 in general, so I've been putting it off for quite a while to be honest.

But in the last few days I spent a little time with it, and when it isn't crashing, some of the features are nice and something to look forward to. Of course, the biggest problem with NT has always been its stability, so that remains to be seen as we're still in a private beta at this point.

NinjaTrader 7 beta 6 in the video, the latest available at the time of this post. I briefly cover the continuous contract improvements, the session manager, hot keys, historical bid ask data, and spend most of the video going over the Chart settings and new multiple time frames settings, as well as the new Data Series options for indicators.

Some of these features were available in NT 6.5, but you had to write your own code to accomplish it. It remains to be seen if the NT7 built-in alternative will be superior or not to those implementations, but it looks promising.




One major thing I forgot to go into more detail on in the video: the seamless sessions for multiple contract termination dates. Say for instance you pull up a chart of CL 03-10, you can now load 90 days of data (CL 02-10, CL 01-10, CL 12-09) on one single chart, seamlessly and automagically, as NT knows the start/end contract dates and will merge the data together. It's basically the same as IQfeed and eSignal continuous contracts, but is now available for Zen Fire users.

I'll plan to make another video showing the new strategy analyzer and genetic optimizer, and the new market replay features. That will also give me an opportunity to talk more about the continuous contracts, as that is a key feature in strategy development. Give me some time

I also hope that the NT dev team has learned some hard lessons during all this. NT7 is about two years late, and there has been a bit of a uprising. So, I try to keep that in mind and cut some slack to the dev team. But they've got their work cut out for them...

Mike, I just watched your video briefly... if you want to make a data series transparent, the easiest way is to change it to Line on Close, and then set the color to Transparent. If you leave it as CandleStick you will have to change multiple settings as shown in your video. Just so you know...

Good idea. But, they really need to make this easier. I see this being something a lot of users want to do -- base an indicator off another DataSeries, without that DataSeries being visible. They just need a switch "Visible: yes/no".

Yeah, you are probably not using IQfeed or eSignal would be my guess. Those are only valid on those platforms.

Zen Fire users need to pick the current contract date, ie ES 03-10, and then the new NT7 continuous contract feature will automatically backfill based on the # of days you asked the historical engine to fill. If you load ES 03-10 and ask for 365 days, it will load multiple contracts automatically and seamlessly (ES 12-09, 09-09, 06-09, etc).

Mike,
I'm using N beta 7.0.0.7. How do you get your data connection to persist as demonstrated in your vid? Thanks.
