Welcome to futures io.

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • 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.

Hi ray

Can you please give us an update on the schedule for beta release. The last estimate was for end of September early Octpober.

Also how will it roll out in terms of who gets it when?

thanks

magicklnow

Sorry, I did not see this post since you did not @mention me.

We are at the tail end of the development process and not that far off from the estimate I provided earlier this year. I will be more specific in the near future. We intend to roll out beta to a core group of active users, then to NinjaTrader Brokerage clients and then to the general public.

Guys- Let's let the man work and finish the project with out asking when it will be out.

It will be out when it will be out.. and just asking him the same release date question will just slow him down probably. :O


But ONE Important question :

Will Ninja 8 have a more stable way of dealing with DATA from the instruments?

Right now in NT 7 we have to delete the cache folder , and hit Reset Instruments in the Tools menu, and restart Ninja every so often.

Will Ninja 8 have the same thing? :O :O

Also one more thing -- can we make the chart SHOW THE BID/ASK spread like the indicator Show Bid/Ask does?

It draws small lines on the chart where the spread is..

Nothing wrong with asking for a release date, especially for people who are busy and plan to learn the new platform: they will need to schedule time for when it comes out. Perhaps you have a flexible schedule and/or enough free time, but we're not all that "rich" with our time.

The irony. No need to ask, according to your view, because you can see it when it's released:

LIFO

Hope NT8 will allow LIFO.
See thread "Am I the only one who noticed this bug on NT 7.0.1?" on this forum.

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

@NinjaTrader how can we get this approved for improved functionality?

It seems that it was depreciated because of low usage.
However, the function as so limited that traders look for other options external to NT.
The big issue is having to manually manage trades if the targets / stops are changed.
This creates significant risk of leaving trades open when using the NT Account Groups.
I think the number of traders that would be using it would change significantly if it were usable.

Your target market should be any 'friends and family' accounts and broker block accounts.
In the case of the broker block accounts (even with your brokerage) there is an additional charge per trade to use the block accounts. If traders could use NT Account Groups as a built in option vs a $1.00 or more per RT I'm sure the number of users would increase dynamically.

Should we start a petition or send requests and/or emails to NT support?

I managed to roll my own, account groups functionality using a client/server model from an indicator. One Server chart can control up to 4 client charts. Overall I am happy with it because it works well for my use but it does have limitations such as a delay of about 50ms (could probably reduced some) between changes on the server propagating to the client charts, would not cut it for HFT but it works for me.

Hopefully NT8 will have better event hooks into the order entry/change engine to allow better performance.

The reason I bring this up is this. If I can manage to get account groups functionality implemented from an indicator using a simple client/server and available (albeit undocumented calls) without access to any order change event handlers, I would have to think it would be an absolutely trivial task for NT programmers to implement.

That is why I just do not understand why such a useful feature was depreciated, and I agree no one is using the current implementation because it is useless. Could it be they are eyeing the extra commissions from block accounts?

This decision was made well before we announced or had any plans to introduce our brokerage. NT8 will provide more hooks to be able to custom code account groups type functionality. Now that we will be rolling out our own server side technology, on the server product road map we have a place holder for mirror trading which is in essence what Account Groups do. No further information about that at this time since it is only a place holder.

Hey NT Team,

I recently heard that the Point & Figure charts in NT7 were not up to par. I talked to a couple of long time traders and they prefer P&F charting from other sources.

Will NT8 produce better and more accurate P&F charts compared to the current version?

Thanks...
