Ok, Then I will leave it at that and take your word for it.
I have seen some posts where some other solutions could have been offered where some had issues, better alternatives, etc.

On a personal note, Sam is a decent human being, and a great guy, so this is not a personal conflict.
I also have have been his customer on the VPS, and he helped us like a champion when we had issues.

Sam uses NT. I imagine he just goes based on what he knows.


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.

I respect that.
Also, I wish NT nothing but the best with the launch of NT8, maybe they will introduce features other will adopt as well, so the whole trading community can benefit.

I've been using NT(7) live for about a month now and can't wait for 8 to be rolled out. While I do appreciate the comprehensiveness of 7 it's glitchy-ness and lack of user-friendliness I find quite astounding. It's 2015 already... Software should be nice to use! Please hurry with 8 before I break my new monitor!

I think what is most accurate is the trend where you come to their rescue at all the times.
Despite of your business associations, likes and dislikes, I wish you were a little bit more like @Big Mike and applied a bit more objectivity when it came to platforms.

I can only comment on platforms I use or used for long enough, not just an install, connect to a data feed and send few orders.

I've been running the beta(s) version(s) since day 1 on a couple of VPS, with live data feed, 24/7, and I already done some kind of advanced coding stuff. So I think I know a bit about this new release.
But like I wrote previously we can't publish or otherwise disclose information relating to performance or quality of the beta, so I'll wait for the official release for commenting on it.

Yes but not immediately. I'm happy with NT7 at the moment, everything working as it should. Once NT8 comes out I will wait until 2 custom indicators I use will be converted to NT8. I'm not the least bit interested in coding.

NT8 release just keeps dragging on.

At first I couldn't wait for NT8 to be released. Then as the delays in release added up, now going on years, I just lost interest.

With the help of futures.io (formerly BMT) I have NT7 working exactly the way I want, coding my order entry/management overlay was a pain mostly inflicted by unnecessary "this is undocumented" BS by Ninja, but it is now working fine and I am happy with it.

Over the years of using NT7 I have gotten used to the incredibly crappy user unfriendliness of the software. I mean don't NT programmers even know what persistence is? What rials me up even more is that it takes 2 lines of code to add persistence but NT7 could not be bothered to do it, never mind the even larger issues with the software that have not been fixed. Instead we are told to wait and wait for NT8 to save us.

I guess I am kind of bitter about it all. Anyway I will probably get NT8 installed because that is just what I do but its going to be some time before I work on getting my custom code converted to it and actually use it to trade.

I personally am getting dang tired of NT period. I'm seriously thinking about going back to Sierra . Used a lot less resources and way more stable. I really aggravated that I bought a lifetime multi-broker license. It's been nothing but a pain every since I got it. I should have know better. When you have to set up your daily charts as 1440 min charts so you can get the correct open/close you know they don't have a clue.

Ironic poll, a new beta came out yesterday. I'm also under NDA, so all I'll say is: We'll see...
