  • 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.

You are not doing something wrong. At this time, Account Groups for NT8 has been deprecated due to extremely low usage data.

Bummer...

NT Brokerage supports account linking though. More accurate fills between accounts I think.

Ray:

I would like to add my vote for inclusion of Volume Profile and Volume Footprint features into Version 8. While I know it has been brought up prior to this post and there are some third party vendors who offer this functionality, I do believe it is a core component to the modern charting platforms.

While 3rd party solutions can be a great, I would rather utilize them for non-core components and more esoteric indicators. I have found that utilizing third parties can be a mixed bag when it comes to Customer Service and Updates. Therefore if the functionality was brought into the platform, I would feel confident that it would be ported to newer versions when they arise and also the NinjaTrader customer support would be available with any issues.

The importance of the volume features can be seen by the offering of the functionality in many of the competing trade/chart platforms, including InvestorRT, Market Delta, Multicharts, Sierra Charts and to a limited degree TD Ameritrade's TOS platform and even a Volume by Price indicator in Quote Tracker which hasn't been updated since 2010.

While I realize that their are trade-offs with all the decisions that you make when releasing a new version, I do believe that this functionality is very pertinent to many traders today and would greatly increase NinjaTrader's overall value proposition. If the volume profile functionality is brought in-house it would IMO make NinjaTrader the best offering available.

Will NT8 have a fully working account groups feature. Right now it only works for order entries. If a stop or target is changed on an active order the changes are not made on all accounts. Or am I doing something wrong?


NinjaTrader View Post
You are not doing something wrong. At this time, Account Groups for NT8 has been deprecated due to extremely low usage data.

As a TWS/NT user trading a number of accounts, the only reason I didn't use the account group feature within NT was because of the limitation mentioned by Seahn

I'm not sure how many other TWS/Ninjatrader users trading multiple accounts are out there, however is there a chance the low usage is due to the inflexibility of the current version in NT, and therefore not a true indication of numbers desiring the feature?

After 4 yrs of being promised that NT8 will have an Account Group functionality, its time to ditch it. It is clear, it wants to be the platform of choice for professional simmers and colored moving average vendors.

Sorry about your disappointment. To add to that, It's kinda funny that an add-on DOM like 9G is as expensive as the platform.

Unfortunately, NT now has a lot on their plate. So the focus in development of your desktop front end might be slowed down. But they are more putting on the cloud. This is where the institutional platforms are going. ie (TTrader's Next).

Hopefully, NT doesn't leave behind the developer partners.

Will NT8 include ASX stocks, even if limited to the ASX top 200?

The current 3rd party addon that is available doesn't correctly price stocks trading under $2.00AUD which have a minimum tick size of 0.005

I tried to use it and was not acceptable as a group account platform.
Having to maintain stops manually does not make it 'group' friendly.

Not adding the feature because of lack of usage data seems to indicate a lot of users find the same limitations.

I believe you are confusing NinjaTrader's internal Account Group feature vs the support of Interactive Brokers Friends and Family/Group accounts.

NinjaTrader 8 in fact does have enhanced support for the latter.

I am not aware of any limitations that being said, there has not been any testing done specific to ASX stocks.
