antivirus

Microsoft Security Essentials works very well with NT. Is easy to exclude files.

Minutes bars vs. everything else

I read in several posts that minutes bars are the best in term of accuracy when compared to other types (vol. ticks, range, etc.) in NT. Are seconds bars as good as minutes or they fall in the others category?

The problem turned out to be AVG Antivirus Version 9, which goes nuts when NT7 is running. I had to downgrade it to Version 8.

May I ask what the experience was with AVG 9?

As a whole, I must say my experiences with NT7 have been much better than with 6.5. I constantly experienced crashes and database errors with 6.5. I haven't experienced any crashes yet with 7. I'm running Win7 pro x64 on an AMD TL60 w/ 4gb ram with a boatload of crap running in the background too.

I would love to see cumulative bid/ask volume on the DOM & an estimated position in queue feature. I love NT charts, but TT has perfected the DOM. I'm stuck using X_Trader as 6.5 was too unstable for me. I'll be switching to NT7 once it's out of beta. Even with having to pay static DOM credits it's a far better value. I'd even be willing to pay for credits to gain the other features like EPIQ and volume profile on the DOM if they are also patented by TT.

I'm curious if lifetime license cost will go up once NT7 is released.

At this time, we have no plans to make any changes to our current pricing policy with the release of NT7.

Good stuff Ray,

As yet is there an approximation of time to when the Beta Version will be completed and a final released issued?

Also, any sweet coupon codes for futures.io (formerly BMT) members?

LOL vegas, yes that would be a good starting point wouldn't it.

I get pretty frustrated with while traversing trading styles. For swing trading stocks on the ASX, NT is a bit of a prick and hassle to get IB codes and everything you do or need to do with Stock Codes you always gotta go through the instrument manager.

Meaning, even if I import a list of some codes from another watch list and then format it accordingly for import, I then can use most of the stocks but then it Rejects some of the other stocks, this pisses me off to high heaven and is frustrating.

The code is correct the stock is good and the rest of the world acknowledges this except for NT and IB combo.

The other thing is, if you then type into a chart a code say ie: BHP

I have the chart and Why cannot not be able to right click it and then send the frigging thing into Market Analyser watch list or something?? This would save Users having to continually Double Task all the time. Not enough user needs analysis put into this I feel and it can be extremely Frustrating.

Or then it gives you BHP in the US when I need ASX version of it, or another code does the same as in type in LNC (Linc Energy) it gives me US version of the stock price not the ASX version and the US LNC version is not even in the instrument manager while the ASX version of LNC is, mean, too many games to play with the program.

In some ways, it feels like more work than its worth, plus you have all the other customisations that you would need to do to make it start to resemble what any other platform would look like within say the Market Analyser, unformatted and staring at it you would think you were looking at a Text File ASCII and not really noticing what should be green or red, up or down and all because the user needs to do it, and the users needs to format each cell. Is this why I wish to pay over $1200 Dollars Australian, so that I have work my ass or do a science class and actually forget about my trading style??? Hmmm, makes me wonder.


I feel the program is excellent if you are trading a specific instrument or a set of specific instruments and you are only focussed on those instruments. But too many games to be had when having a mixed trading styles or when you dont wish to be a mathematics programmer genius or some slick script wizard. Out of the box its not for the average Jo, imo, ATM.

Well, that is my gripe with NT.


So much for asking for a discount or winning the NT life time comp....LOL
