NinjaTrader MarketPlace & Thoughts

I'm not sure how you guys are wanting to market NinjaTrader. From a developer stand point, it seems you just put your platform out there and hope people would just use it even with the lack of futures/forex broker selections. There's literally 1 forex broker to choose from (and their spread is absolutely atrocious).

I feel like the NinjaTrader platform lacks a strong community of developers and traders. Sure, you have a giant of list of vendors, but many of the sites listed are outdated or dead. The connection to developers and traders are fragmented. It's hard to know which developers/indicators are still active or offer any support at all. Have you guys ever thought of creating a centralized market place for NinjaTrader like an app store, something similar to MetaTrader Market place? I could see stuff like: indicators, strategies, robots, templates, skins, customizations, etc. Just having a market place can attract more 3rd-party developers and retail traders to support and try the platform.

Thank for your thoughts.

We are looking to expand our forex brokerage support, to that end, I am travelling to London this November specifically to the London Finance Magnates show which is a trade show focused on FX. With respect to a market place, we are launching an overhauled www.ninjatraderecosystem.com within the next month which will be product centric allowing users to search and filter for add ons including those mentioned in the list you provided.

The new ecosystem is great to hear about! I hope you guys are able to eliminate most/all of the snake oil vendors from your list. I absolutely love Ninja for what I use it for, but quite a few traders I know were turned off by Ninja because of the many knuckleheads in the ecosystem (guilt by association, I'm guessing)...

(By the way, last year in September 2016 I echoed most of these comments to your business development guy Jared M)

I would be good if you as an FX broker would include direct API connection as well . Without the need to go thru Ninjatrader trading application even if that might be your main focus which is understandable. The market is bigger then just Ninjatrader users. And even if I have used Ninjatrader since 2004 I also use other platforms and systems.

If you make a deal with LMAX it would be great or enter into business with LMAX like Introducing Broker.

Dear Mr. Deux,

Thank you for your reply.

Although timely, it has a sufficiently nebulous and non-commital tone which falls short or being completely reassuring. Should we expect this being rolled out/implemented on Q4 (2017) or Q1 (2018)?

Sorry for the delay, I was out of the office for the past several days. You are correct in your interpretation, there is not commitment at this time. Its on our list of possible future enhancements.
