Hi all,

I use the Chart Trader exclusively for my trade management in NT8 and I really love it, but lately I've felt it's been a tad too slow in these volatile markets. It would be great to quickly be able to add orders in a one click manner instead of click -> Find orders -> click submit.

There's an add-on available here, but I was notified by Ninjatrader that it was NOT an official vendor.

https://ninjatools.studio/clicktrader-ninjatrader-demo?

Did anyone try it?

Are there any other similar solutions?

I seem to recall finding something similar in the past. Don't remember exactly what, but it certainly was an improvement to the Chart Trader functionality.

Another option is to simply start using the DOM instead.

Thanks in advance.

Hi @LaissezFaire

With the Hot Keys menu in your NinjaTrader 8, you can do also customs orders and use Hot Keys to use them, included buy/sell stop orders. In your control center find the tools menu and Hot Keys.

Cheers

Who cares it is an official vendor or not, it works great! I started using it since NT7 without any problem. There are hundreds add-ons in the download section, there are not official vendors, we use them everyday.

Hi, Ignacio,

Hope all is well in Madrid in these troubled times.

Thanks for that suggestion. I need to do some more research on this, but could you quickly tell me how this works?

I would think this would only work to hit the market with market orders or close a position?

Or could you actually set it up to enter a buy/sell limit at XX price?

Thanks.

Are you now using it on NT8? I seemed to see some posts on this forum about how it was no longer working properly on NT8, but maybe that's been resolved by now.

As for official vendor - not sure I should care about that. Just saying that Ninjatrader mentioned it. I don't mind using free indicators for trivial purposes, but for order entry which involves a lot of $$$ - I want to make sure I use something that's 'bug free'. Of course, not guarantee that won't happen just because it's not free.

Anyway, I take it you recommend this tool then?

The alternative for me is to simply start learning the DOM and place it under my Chart Trader window. Long term I would probably benefit from that as it would easier let me use other brokers if I should so desire. But I have to say I do really enjoy trading off charts.

Thanks.

read this section "How to create custom order actions"

In the Options menu > Trading categories, you need to enable the "Use order entry hot keys".

Yes. I am using it on NT8, it works flawlessly.

You can use DOM for order entry. However, if you want to enter order at special bar location, it is quicker to use ClickTrader.

Great. I might just have to get this one.
