  • 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.

NinjaTrader replacement

I canceled my quarterly subscription to Ninjatrader today.

I just love Ninjatrader. For me it does it all. There's only one thing, it crashes. 6.5 crashes, 7 b18 crashes, they all crashes. We're bloody 2010, give me a break please.

This morning it crashed again while loading charts and again when I was in a trade and then later when I wanted to enter a trade who turned out to be a winner, so I lost because of Ninjatrader. It crashes sometimes when I'm just looking at the charts without clicking anything.

I have sended numerous bug reports with logs to NT but they all come back to me that they can't reproduce the crashes.

I have a automated strategy programmed in NT also, but it's no problem to reprogram this in another program.

I'm looking for a replacement, please if you have any ideas.

I checked out multicharts but are missing the chart trader or DOM, maybe I need to split up programs and don't search for a one program fits all ?

I daytrade forex, mainly GBPUSD, EURJPY and EURUSD. 5 to 15 trades a day.

Thanks

Speaking from experience, I recommend MultiCharts if you are looking for a solid, fast, and very powerful charting and backtesting platform.

For order execution of discretionary trades, MultiCharts does not have a DOM yet (it is scheduled soon). Personally, I have been using the NT DOM with MC charting for many, many months. However, NT is the weak link in that equation, I still have problems with it. So now I am looking at X-Trader, I feel confident it is stable and reliable, and so far it has the feature set I need in a DOM.

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.
6)

If u can shift to another broker. I guess Open E Cry does support both EasyLanguage + C# . Though I'm not aware of its speed and all . May be some OEC user can give u proper inputs. But all what i can see is , DOM + EL support, This fills gap between multicharts & Ninja's DOM. It directly supports multicharts too.

I'm testing demo since past couple of days. Couldnt spare much time over it. But seems good to me.

Hey Metal Trade,

Check out a free program which is still early in development called Trade Project which is here: Welcome to TradeProject

It has a DOM, Chart Trader and bunch of other stuff too, but as I say its early in development though.

As always, one should take caution but there is no harm in looking at it for reference.

Currently it only has broker/data support for IB, but Daniel has said he will release a IQFeed-interface in one of the next versions.

Although it is a free program, it is unfortunately not Opensource, which would have been good for others to become extensively involved and although, I myself dont actually run the program as my main program, I do take the time to help what I call one of the underdogs by doing some testing and submitting any bugs whenever I come across them.

So for all you IB or IQ feed users out there, check it out and I encourage you to participate.

Luke.

I downloaded and installed SC about 3 weeks ago, but got busy and never activated it. On Monday I sent an email requesting activation and they replied that my 2 week trial had expired and I needed to buy the program. I got mad and replied asking them how they figured I used my 2 week trial when it wasn't even activated? They replied stating that they had extended my trial. I was still mad and replied that I had already removed it and wouldn't need the trial, thanks anyway. That said, I should probably swallow my pride and try it because it is so reasonable. Before I take such drastic measures, may I ask if it has ATM capabilities and can you create custom paint bar studies? Thank you.

There are many orders functionality, but I nerver looked into them, only tried some basic chart trading orders, cos I used it for charting not for trading, but i think on SC web pages u will find well documentation, and if u post on support board u will receive fast response, this especially for custom bar painting that i dunno if is possible, I never see a custom study with paint bar.

TT's XTrader is the owner of the DOM patent. They are expensive and excellent imo. But I use NT v7 b18 and it is fine w/ execution at IB. I have a Fios connection 25/15.
