Finally got the time to watch this webinar, really excited about the possibilities created by the platform being opened up so much. Great move I think!
I have a question about some of the automation stuff Ray mentioned:
- Will it be possible to programatically connect to a configured broker/data feed? (I'm confident that the answer to this is yes based off the webinar, but want to confirm)
- Following on from that, will it be possible to instantiate, configure and enable strategies programatically in NT8?
Yes you can establish/manage connections. Technically the ability through code manage strategies is available however, it is not on our list to document as a 1st pass. Alternatively, it could also be done through UI automation meaning, you can hook into the Control Center strategy tab and drive it that way.

Thanks Ray, whether it's through directly instantiating strategies or through UI automation, the fact that it will be possible will be a huge boon to me. Same with being able to automate optimization runs - being able to write some code that will in some way or other batch run a set of optimizations will be a huge time and effort saver. Can't wait to get my hands on it!
We have since renamed it to "Sharing Services". These are services that allow you to share data such as images and price. Here is a snapshot of the the services that will install as default. These are NinjaScript objects meaning, one could write their own service...such as sharing images on Instagram, for example.

I have been meaning to ask this for a while. Within strategies, we can fire orders against different instruments if it is setup for multiple time frames.
My question is rather than fire against multiple instruments, but multiple accounts. More specifically, can you choose between sending and order to a live trading account or sim trade account within the same live strategy. In the past, I have tried to "simulate" when running back (chop, etc) and then try to switch to Live after the strategy starts being profitable again. This was not possible in NT7.
