Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

Don't understand why ppl are complaining

I have read many people having huge problems with the stability of Ninjatrader.

I use it since a few weeks and run the 17 beta. I must honestly say that I don't have any problems at all. I have had no crashes at all.

Is the NT7 beta17 so much better than NT6.5 ? Or must I discover the real problems of Ninjatrader later on when I dig deeper into the program ?

So far so good. I just wanted to type this message because not only negatvie comments about NT should be posted

There is a thread with all the details here:

People, including myself, are complaining, because for both NT 6.5. and NT 7.0 there are many bugs that prevent us from using the product as we had expected. That said, NinjaTrader still offers reasonable value for money.

NT7 has come a long way. For a first time install it seems to be pretty good, but have you seen the install instructions (uninstall, remove this, do this, do that, now reinstall...). I think deep down they have some major issues that they are still working out. I think it also depends what parts of NT you are using.

For me, it has been rather stable for a while in that it does not crash. NT7 is vastly better than NT 6.5 in terms of perf and mem use. In terms of functionality, what I use works, but I have stopped doing any new work on NT until I see light at the end of the tunnel.

Ray and company seem to understand they have issues and are committed to fixing them long term, which is great. The problem I see is NT 7.5 or NT 8.0 is not going to happen until 2012 (hope I am wrong).

I own NT, and will continue to use it until I find something better.

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.
