Respectfully, I do not have the time right now to sift through the webinar, but to anyone that did, were there questions about NT8 stability (see https://futures.io/ninjatrader/41237-ninjatrader-8-not-ready-prime-time.html for reference) and were they addressed by Raymond?

Thanks to anyone that takes the time to respond.

I was unable to attend live but listened to the recording today. To be honest i was disappointed ; little to nothing was asked or mentioned on stability and the questions were very basic and perhaps mostly newbies attended ; it seemed few who attended and asked questions have had in depth use of this since beta (from what i could tell and from what questions were asked - perhaps not everyones question was asked ?) : it was more like a basic review of Ninja and some of the standard features. For anyone monitoring the Ninja forum the questions and context did not reflect what is being reported in the forum. I will say i am seeing improvement with the latest .6 release. That does not mean to say contentious and frustrating issues need to be addressed in detail but there is a balance and i dont feel there is much transparency being conveyed. It has been noted elsewhere in this forum some of the issues with OnRender() and performance and stability and these are improving but not all has been fixed ; unfortunately custom scripts and coders are to blame - but this cant be so when you look through the bug lists of the releases coming out.

my 2 cents

i did listen to parts of it recorded. I have not been actively trading on Ninja simply as when i started with Ninja7...it took me time to setup and was live. Then have slowly started cutting over some of my stuff to Ninja8. for me to use something is a long process and i do not anticipate using either ninja8 for active trade management next 6-12 odd months till everything i need on ninja8 is cutover from my indicator/analysis perspective. I do however have live logins for both platforms but will not be trading much on it. what i like about ninja is the no frills support i have been getting. email response is awesome and if i need remote help it's a phone call away.

My active trading on Ninja starts as soon as 100% of my stuff is cut over. my applications on Ninja8 over last few releases have been pretty stable.

having said the above.... i am super impressed about the capabilities on Ninja8. I am awestruck to say the least. I cannot share what i do....but if someone does work on OF there is tons of stuff under the hood. I also to love tick replay.

i have a couple questions though since i saw the webinar and was not sure on some of the things. I am using the Direct edition currently but can cutover anytime to a full paid version.

My Questions:-
1) Can i still be connected to Ninja Brokerage and get my Datafeed thru Continuum.....but route an Order to a TDAmeritrade/TOS IRA.

2) Is there some feature coming like Tick Replay for Market Depth. Could the platform store Level 2 ..or Depth Data. That would be something spectacular if possible either using something in the cloud or local.

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.

many thanks...cheers !! on a amazing platform. I am sure an issues will be resolved such that all are happy with performance

This thread highlights opinion of NT8 from a number of users who try to use anything other than basic functionality:

I'm stunned by all the problems and count myself very grateful for not having any issues. For the first time since buying my license in 2011 I've now been able to run 4 charts on 9-11 (over 50 charts total) markets plus run Jigsaw tools and a few other basic range tools all on the one machine. Well done Ninjatrader, cheers!

$US without ICE data like DX

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, ...)

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.
