Hi, Is anyone using NinjaTrader 8 with TD Ameritrade,

1. Can I operate in Ninjatrader chart NQ, MNQ with my account in TDameritrade? How works?

2. how you pay the fees?

if any one have experience working with Ninjatrader+ TDameritrade let me know your experience.

Thank you

Not currently using NT8 with TDA but here is a quick response.

Using NT8 to trade futures via TDA is not popular (maybe not possible see link in list of links below).

For NT8 I have seen TDA positioned as the best low costs source for some market index, and other metrics. A recent NT8 release expanded options trading capabilities at TDA but not yet positioned as a full feature replacement for TOS.

In general Interactive Brokers appears to a more popular 'Alt" broker than TDA for NT8 users.
In short based on the very limited post above I would loosely encourage you towards IB over TDA.

Here a are a few links
HOW - get connected:

Search the NT8 forum for the term "Ameritrade" surfaces a long list of topics I would review prior to trading TDA via NT8.

Happy Trading!
