I'm not crazy about the charting, but I have other things for that. I love the order execution in NT7. I'll be upgrading to 8 as soon as TST supports it.
Here's hoping they bring in a usable market profile.

I'm straight in with anything new - although some of my beloved indicators are still just on NT7.

So I have it & played with it - but haven't migrated to it yet.

If you have any questions about the products or services provided, please send me a Private Message or use the futures.io "Ask Me Anything" thread

Yeah the indicator thing will be a issue for me, I am in love with Itchimoku from Ninza.co, however I have been assured a NT8 version will be coming.

Not planning on switching to v8 any time in the near future. Between v7 and Sierra, I'm content.

Already Did

Yep, been using NT8 live from the first opportunity and it's great. Only the odd little niggle that you'd expect. So much better than 7. I'm wrapped!

maybe I'm missing something

I thought I'd have a quick test evaluation this afternoon, downloaded and installed the now public NT8_B5 release onto my laptop. It's not a new machine but it's still a 2.5Ghz 4Gb Vista SP2 machine that runs everything more than well enough (c20-30% slower than my i7 W7 box.)

Install and migration went fine, albeit the non-alphabetic conversion and import of historical data was a bit weird, especially as there is no progress bar for quite a long operation.

Sadly downhill after that, with even just a single chart taking loads more CPU to run than NT7, graphics updates delayed by many seconds and often missing completely, price changes seriously slow in comparison, running separately or together. Finally it just fell over after one window resize too many.

It's still clearly very Beta and I hope I'm missing something (like maybe WPF is a no-no on Vista cf Forms?) but out-of-the-box I was expecting more and a lot less clunkiness. Maybe don't expect much unless you've got machinery that exceeds the minimum recommended by quite a long way.

For now I'll assume it's just Beta issues and await another round or two before trying it on the big box.

Cheers

What graphic card do you have?
I think it might be the problem, if it's a very slow one, as the GUI now use DirectX and some computing is made by the GPU directly (if I understood things correctly).

Hi Sam, it's the original built-in (Dell Vostro 1710) NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GS 256Mb running DirectX 10, (under .Net 4.5.1). So, not a recent card but it does their 3D demo rotations fine and I figured it ought to be plenty for anything 2D. The laptop runs an FDAX replay at 500X without even breaking sweat under NT7 so I remain puzzled and have to assume bugs/unknown system issues. If you think it's worth it I'll contact Ninja, maybe it's an odd-ball.

Cheers
