Thanks for providing this suggestion. I will forward this along to my Product Management team as a feature for future consideration.

Ray,
I'm new to this site and I'm also new to the whole frontend interface, data, and broker businesses. Yet, I have been a part-time trader with my own funds since the .com bubble. Moreover, I gravitated to all-inclusive brokerage houses like TDAmeritrade, TDWaterhouse, E-trade, etc.

Lately, I've been trying out different frontend software to trade with and find that I like your software the best. However, I'm not a fan of the limited partnerships that you have formed.

Do you plan on opening up your software to other brokers?

For instance, Trade Station has zero commissions for Military, Veterans, and first responders.

Hi,
Thanks for reaching out to me. We are always evaluating new brokerage partnerships on a global basis and are in fact getting ready to launch with a new INTL brokerage firm in Q3 of this year. Assuming you require an US brokerage, in addition to NinjaTrader Brokerage for futures and forex, we currently support Interactive Brokers (futures and equities), Oanda and GAIN Capital (FX only) and TD Ameritrade (stocks only).

Can NT do point and click VWAP point of origin?

Raymond the cats meow in VWAP is to be able to point and click on a spike or flush to establish the point of origin. Can your new improvements to VWAP do that. Is it planned anytime soon?

Thanks for the great additions to functionality thus far.
(My greatest longstanding request is to make User Defined Symbols available in Ninjatrader. Any hope?
