I watched the replay.
Around 6 months ago I installed and tried to begin to migrate my NT7 Setup (user of 5 yrs) and rapidly reached the conclusion not any time soon, for a combination of points made already here above and on the NT8 Forum thread posted.
Those were, and, having revisited the thread posted above and to summarize, remain:
- those on the thread and other threads, who have substantial experience, are in the main still of the opinion that the product is not yet fit-for-purpose/general release as a commercial product
- Support's handling of problems reported is sub-par
- some third-party developers have experienced difficulties transitioning to 8. The gist of it seems to be Ninja says the developers are in error, developers say they identify problems Ninja have not or deny, and have not communicated/documented/given guidance. Not for me to comment, other than it isn't pretty and serves no one as Ninja, vendors and end-users are all stakeholders in a successful outcome

The AMA was 'fair enough' and as commented on - the event was for Ninja to put it out there and interested parties to ask questions, which were largely about features and functionality and addressed well.

The event apparently didn't attract anyone to attend and ask about the product's development problems still being experienced and whether it is in fact ready for market and should currently be being presented as such at such an event.
The number of users experiencing no difficulties and highly satisfied with NT8 may far exceed those on the thread posted above.

Having stimulated me to take another look, I'm no more encouraged to re-start migration, and maintain a watching brief meantime.

Ice has priced $US DX out of value for many small traders. Is there a good proxy for $US so traders can use it against the 6's (6A, B, ...)

Hi jmont1:

Was there any response or suggestion yet so far?

Thx

The best proxy may be an inverse correlation.....perhaps the yen or euro....depends on the time of day ...etc.

@xiaosi, yes I have thought about that. And the DX that most people use is heavily weighted to the 6E Euro. So that may be my best option. Wonder how a combination of EURO, GC and perhaps ZB would correlate. Not aware of any indicator that can combined more than one to create a custom "instrument."

Request to enhance the NT Optimizer

Dear Mr. Deux,

After some detective work, some disheartening news to me:

The Optimizing feature within Ninja's Strategy Analyzer (NT7) does not function on indicators used within a BloodHound template (a 3rd party software enabling visual programming blocks to quickly backtest based on limitless combination of indicators/parameters)..

I am told that NinjaTrader does not currently have the capability to manipulate indicator settings or values used within another indicator, nor does it have the ability to alter settings used in the Bloodhound Solvers.

Optimization is limited to Raven with the number of contracts, profit target and stop loss positions.

Until the moment this post was written, BlackBird (Strategy manager from the same company) cannot be optimized through the NT Optimizer.

I'll keep looking and will report back when I find something else. In an ideal world, Ninja could have Jeremy Tang (Sharkindicators) or Harry "FatTails" help redesign/architect the NT8 Optimizer from the ground up in order to expose some parameters for proper optimization.

3) I am a bracket trader simply as i dont trade fulltime. I hear lot of stuff on OCO's. My question if one is using the full paid version of Ninjatrader. Once an Market order is filled and an OCO is submitted....can the PC be shutdown such that orders auto execute according to set Stop/Limit of the bracketed OCO.

I also would like to know if OCO orders on NinjaTrader 8 are kept on their trade servers for execution.

Thanks!
