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.
The OP wants a poll, so feel free to answer the poll by clicking the button at the top of the thread. But we don't need another discussion on why/why-not NinjaTrader so please refrain from sharing negative or positive thoughts in this thread (just keep it to the poll only). -- Big Mike
