Now that the beta is public, are any of you trying it out?

Mike

Yep. Downloaded it the first day it was available.

On the surface, it's very similar in appearance to 7, so easy enough to get used to on a top-level view.

But digging into the programming details is taking some time; I couldn't offer any opinions yet. I'm also not digging into the new user features yet. It's a little hard to find time to get into it.

Bob.

I have also converted some strategies. I found the help topics for NinjaScript to be very helpful. The one thing I did notice is it seems like it slower compiling the strategies. Plus the pointer does not spin or anything when you click compile, so you have to wait till the curser starts blinking to know that it is done compiling.

Differences in compile time:
NT7 less 5 seconds to compile.
NT8 10 to 20 seconds to compile.

I tried the current beta.

So far, I am disappointed.

I did not use/test any charting - only the DOM and the main window.

My reference and comparison platform is Ninja7 and it's DOM , which I like.

- The performance and resource needs of the DOM are poor.
- The functionality vs screen space ratio is very poor.
- the template / design is big , fat and ugly.
- the replace the CENTER button to the top of the DOM is missing.
- they put little thought into the menu/preference/options concept.
---(more Steve Jobs here - less windows95 would be good)

one positive point:
- the idea of replacing the HOLD function with mouse-hover is a good, creative & helpful idea ,
-- but when hovering it takes 2 seconds before I can scroll the price DOM with the mouse wheel
---- this is unacceptable for fast markets.


Ninja seems to De-evolve.
I need tighty, speedy and efficient tools.

Also; for this result - what did they work on the hole time ?

Hacking away

Been coding some indicators for it. Nice to get more precise historical bid ask data without the GomRecorder. So those are called UN Gom indicators. The current beta 5 is still quite buggy.

The timestamp resolution appears to be one millisecond. Still lots of trades going off with the same time stamp.

The resolution will be dependent on your data feed, not NT. Ray explained that several times over the last couple years. The platform supports the resolution of one DateTime tick (nothing to do with a tick in trading lingo)

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)

I changed the background in NT7 to a bright color to ensure I didn't trade in SIM by accident. @NinjaTrader - Why did you leave this out? Or am I missing it?
t

Its under Tools > Options

We had about 500 people participate in the closed beta. With open beta, we are at about 1,500 users now. We have received excellent feedback and greatly appreciate it.

- The performance and resource needs of the DOM are poor.

Based of another comment you made, maybe your PC is on the low end of our min requirements? The SuperDOM performance is better in NT8 than NT7.

- the template / design is big , fat and ugly.

There are options to change the look and feel via skins under Tools > Options. The SuperDOM functionality at its core is the same as NT7. There is some padding around the window which increased the size. I will submit this constructive criticism to our product management team.

Wanted to add...I personally like the Slate Gray skin, gives NinjaTrader a more flat look. You can also hide the "Tabs" if that is taking up too much screen space.

This should be instantaneous. That's why I was thinking maybe its a PC resource issue? We are happy to look into this for you if you wish.

Are you guys going to include the ability to add customizable buttons to the DOM to change the quantity of your order? The puny quantity window with the even punier arrows doesn't work for real trading. Most modern DOMs have quantity buttons so you can quickly adjust the quantity of your order without having to fidget too much with the mouse and keyboard. I hope you considered this in your design.
