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.


You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

Still the same lame DOM I see.

Have you looked at the SuperDOM section of the Major Enhancements PDF? There are some great improvements.

PATS Connectivity Adapter in NT8

@NinjaTrader

There is no mention of the PATS connectivity adapter in the NT8 major enhancement notes. Please advise as most Ninjatrader users use this brokerage technology to route trades for the Asian exchanges.

Cheers...eric

Yes I did read it.

The hover is something that should hopefully be a lot better than the previous hold button. The way other companies get around the TT patent is something that eludes Ninja, this is a shame. The addition of the volume profile is a welcome addition. Considering the DOMs currently available on the market (and they have been for some time), and Ninjas price.. I think the NinjaDom should move fully into the 21st century. It is the most important part of the platform for many. There was no way they could not make zero changes to the DOM, but these IMO are a few minor enhancements, I would hardly call these major enhancements and this is the biggest new release for Ninja ever.

Maybe I will be surprised when the software is finally released, I do hope so.

Another poor show by Ninja is the time it has taken, they should certainly have put more resources into their bread and butter platform upgrade. Can appreciate they donīt release it quickly so they can be assured it is "as good as it can be" but how overdue is it?

Yes, but one thing they have done is make the Dom a ninjascript Object. That should open it up to serious customization using NinjaScript and I think in the end there will be a lot on interesting enhancements put forward by the user community, both paid and unpaid.

Besides PATS, can you confirm the external connection will still be there ?

historical data on bid/ask

hi Ray
whether the platform is able to compensate for historical data on bid / ask when connecting to iqfeed (kinetick) for any period (time. tick. range bars and etc)?
I hope you understand me what I mean, because you have three opponents (Sierra Chart, MarketDelta Charts, MultiCharts) who easily do

* If investing gets too difficult for a seventh grader to understand, the system is needlessly complex
* Markets produce an enormous volume of information, much of which is redundant
* In every game and con there's always an opponent, and there's always a victim. The trick is to know when you're the latter, so you can become the former

Ray has covered this many times in multiple webinars. Answer is yes. You should watch all the NT8 webinars on futures.io (formerly BMT).

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)

Yes, the External Connection is still supported with NT8.

Thanks for bringing that to my attention. At this time, I have held off supporting Patsystems in NT8. The reason is that we have only a few hundred users on it and every month that number goes down.

Are you trading through Philips by chance?
