Hello,

I am wanting to understand more about getting a QuickFix protocol set up for NT8 in order to access more broker options than NT8 natively provides.

Does anyone have any experience of implementing this or can point me in the right direction of learning how to set this up? I'm a newbie when it comes to programming so really this would need to be the very basics for me to try and understand it.

If anyone can point me in the right direction, provide a basic overview of how quikFix could be used with NT8 or (jackpot!!) anyone can share some code in regard to implementing a working FIX protocol on NT8 that would be appreciated.

There is no point psting this on the NT8 forum as they will not provide assistance in regard to this type of thing.

In the meantime I'm looking over videos on youtube to get an understanding of the basics (e.g )

Cheers

So there is quickFix c# version which is where I'll start. https://github.com/connamara/quickfixn

The developer at one stage attempted an NT7 bridge, not sure of it's success. Be good is anyone else is interested in trying to get an NT8 FIX solution to get in touch. https://github.com/FabienCarmagnac/NinjaTrader_FixBridge/wiki

The FIX protocol is not very simple/fun to implement, and you'll need the specifics from the counter-part you'll use.
You will also have to create a "fake adapter" which will the protocol used by a supported/documented one (IQFeed or IB).
For which broker(s) do you need this?

Hi Sam, thanks for getting back to me.

Ideally I was hoping to create a generic quickfix connection that I could use for multiple brokers as required. I'm initially looking at using Dukascopy and they have sent me a demo account FIX settings. I thought that I would be able to have a generic quickFix adapter and the counter party settings could be entered as properties on the adapter UI or as a seperate config txt file that could be manually generated and swapped in per broker?

If anyone is interested in getting a group together to work on converting this to NT8 maybe we could do something here. I'll try reaching out to the developer first of all.

@NinjaTrader,

Is this acceptable use of your platform? We aren't sure, so are referring it to you.

Thanks.

Bob.

Don;t see what it's got to do with NT8 what Add-on I develop. It's not breaching any terms of service. If Ninjatrader were serious about platform development they should build the FIX connection like most other genuine platforms, Mulitcharts, cTRader etc. The problem with NT8 is that they moved from being a platform business to being a broker business so they won;t develop a FIX connection as they want customers to be forced into using their own brokers and data providers. It's a shame that NT8 sold out like this leaving many customers who have invested time and effort getting to know the platform limited to very outdated connection options.

Actually, the question is whether developing a way to connect to other brokers and data providers would be an attempt to appropriate NT's intellectual property for a use that they don't want it to have: connecting to brokers they do not have agreements with, and of course their own brokerage as well.

We are unsure of the answer to this question, but are unwilling for this forum to be used for the purpose of violating anyone's intellectual property rights, if in fact this is. So we referred the matter to the holder of the rights in question, and will wait for their response.

We publicly tagged @NinjaTrader here, rather than contacting them privately, in order to be as transparent as possible. We'll see if there is any issue once they have replied.

They've stated on their own forums that quickFix could be implemented on the platform if users are competent in coding with it so I can;t see it being an issue.

There is no mention of it in the TOS and I am a full licence holder.

It's dissapointing that NT8 haven;t implemented this themselves. Multicharts, cTRader etc all have this functionality.

Thanks for the clarification. Our concern is that intellectual property rights are not infringed on the forum.

In light of this, this thread is closed.
