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.

There is no simple conversion process. In some cases, the changes will be fairly minor, in other cases they will be more involved. They will all require some manual programming to adapt to the new version of NT. There is no automated method.

For info, you can start here (scroll down to the section titled "Migrating NinjaScript Files"): NinjaTrader Installation Guide

If you are not a programmer, you will need to wait until a programmer can reprogram the indicators, unfortunately.

Bob.

Thanks.

To add, our team will be converting most if not all NinjaTrader 7 user submitted indicators available on the NinjaTrader Support Forum staring with the most popular and working down from there. This will be an ongoing work in progress over the next few months.

@sam028, I'm able to run both on the same machine, and have them both running now, in fact.

I do believe I closed 7 before the 8 install, however.

Bob.

Correct, my bad, I also did this earlier.
I mistaken with running the 32 bit and the 64 bit of the same version.

No that's just volume profile on a DOM, a volume ladder is like this:

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)

Thanks Mike.

No, this feature is not currently in NinjaTrader 8 out of the box.

Modifying Order Size

Hello,

I tried with the last versions but this seems not to work at all.

Did you experience the same? It worked well in NT7

"Modifying Order Size
To modify the size of an order:

Left mouse click on the area of the order label that displays the order quantity. An order size modification control will appear. Modify the quantity in the quantity field by using either the up/down arrows, the mouse scroll wheel, or by typing the desired quantity. When done, click the check mark to accept the modification, or press the X to cancel the modification."

Is NT8 going to support multi-exchange symbol mapping for Equities? So IB clients can receive level 2 data from multi exchanges.

At present you can only receive level 2 data from one exchange/ECN at a time, eg NASDAQ, however, to receive any meaning full information you would need L2 data from NASDAQ + ISLAND + ACRA etc

"Free markets work because they allow people to be lucky, thanks to aggressive trial and error, not by giving rewards or incentives for skill. The strategy is, then, to tinker as much as possible and try to collect as many Black Swan opportunities as you can"
