  • 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.

@NinjaTrader

Since for those of us not in the US, hedging on the same instrument (as in having both Long and Short position) is allowed by many brokers including FXCM. What is the NT8 way of dealing with this - will hedging be available from strategies, chart trader and DOM?

We allow hedging at the platform level through either ATM or NinjaScript strategy, same as NT7. We don't support hedging at the account level.

Once NT8 is released, will there be any plans for NinjaTrader to make Forex available on their brokerage side?

Thanks, but could you explain or point me to the info on how the platform level hedging works in NinjaScript strategy - do you mean separate strategies with separate accounts or something else - the only info I could find so far (including NT support forum) is that hedging is not allowed.

I want to backtest a strategy that includes hedging - is it possible?

I am not sure we have anything in print regarding this subject. Simply put though, I am pretty sure you can run two separate strategies on the same instrument simultaneously on the same account. The strategies manage their own position although the account position is just the NET of the two strategy managed positions. You can't backtest this since they are two separate running strategies.

First Post

Iím new here and have a few questions about Ninjatrader /platform.

Will NT 8 be server based, meaning if I place limit order, is it locally placed on my computer or is it sent to a server and executed once price reaches the order. I have internet issues and have been disconnected in the past. If I have a stop placed locally on my pc and its not routed to a server I could get into serious trouble if I get disconnected from the internet.

Is there any update on NT8 release

Would you recommend using NT if the only thing I trade is the Emini. Should I use something else? I would like a risk/reward indicator which NT does not have. Thanks Moe

The backtesting problem could be overcome by portfolio backtesting - is there any change planned in this regard now or in the future?

  • All orders submitted by NinjaTrader reside at the exchange not on your local computer.
  • NT8 will be released in beta by the end of April.
  • Of course I would recommend NT for trading Eminis but then of course I am biased

That is correct. Portfolio backtesting is on our list however, it is not committed to any development plan at this time.
