  • 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.

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...

Yes.

The primary issue with NT7 P&F charts are that bars are cut off at the start of each trading session. With NT8, there is an option to disable this.

I'm a big PnF guy, so I can't wait to see this in NT8.. NT7 PnF becomes almost un-programmable when dealing with large box sizes. Intraday, small box sizes it does the job!

Cheers,

Sody

Walk Forward Optimization


Was really hoping to see enhancement to the walk forward optimizer. Specifically:

1. Results and Equity Curve: When a walk-forward result is produced, there is no consolidated trade list or equity curve to review and analyze.

2. Long running trade truncation. When running the walk forward for systems that have longer running or trades that cross out of sample boundaries, the trades are truncated and not completed - leading to vastly incorrect results

3. Save to Strategy Option: Would be great to be able to save the walkforward results into a set of "if" settings/statements that a consolidated strategy can executed moving forward.

Instrument name cannot contain the following characters in NinjaTrader 8:

\/:*?<>|

The reason is as we save instrument data directly to the disk in files and these are the restricted characters in windows for file names, as such they are restricted in NinjaTrader. Note: This applies to the Master Instrument name only. So you still are able to map to these symbols with NinjaTrader using a modified Master Instrument name that does not contain the restricted characters.

Is there a reason why, when hitting a Reverse button, Ninja first closes the existing position before opening a new one ? Must be margin handling related.

Would it be possible in NT8 to have an option to set the Reverse handling so that only one order is passed (double quantity of the existing net position) instead of two ?

Thanks for the suggestion but this feature in NT8 will work the same way as in NT7.

Hi Ray @NinjaTrader
May have been asked and answered before, but.
Does NT receive any compensation from 3rd party vendors/affiliates/partners?
Thanks in advance.

Wrong thread for this bro..

This is for people asking questions about the enhancements made to NT8 not their business practices.

Will NT8 provide the extensibility for a developer partner to build an Options trading interface/order ticket?
