Ninja Trader Workspace(s)

I got to thinking about Workspaces. So I decided to create individual Workspaces for each setup(s) that Iím testing and setup(s) that Iím trading with from day to day. So over the weekend Iíve created 9 Workspaces. Each one has its purpose and I thought I was doing something good. Come to find out during Monday/Tuesday trading day(s) that Iíve noticed some performance issues with Ninja Trader. What I didnít realize is that when Ninja Trader is loading it also loads all your Workspaces that you had previously opened. I got to thinking about it and it didnít take long but I come to realize that the performance issues was coming from loading all 9 Workspaces. I shut down Ninja Trader and removed all except the Workspace the one that Iím trading with.

To avoid this situation is when you open up a Workspace or create a new Workspace is to close the prior Workspace first then open up the other Workspace. Upon exiting Ninja Trader it will display a dialog box asking to save Workspace(s). Thatís right, it will ask to save each Workspace. Why does it do this I have no idea.

You would figure having 8gigs of memory, 300+ gig hard drive(s), AMD X3 processor, and 1 gig of memory on the video card that Ninja Trader performance shouldnít have any issues.

I haven't tried "Ninja 6.5 largeaddressaware hack" to see if the performance issue would improve. Maybe I'll give that a try next weekend.

The large address hack will not improve speed of your scenario. It is only for OutOfMemory exceptions.

You are correct, you should only have one workspace open at once.

I would suggest using the Template system for charts instead of the Workspace system as you are using it.

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)

This is a major flaw of how NT uses workspaces and handles memory.

in tradestation each workspace contains its windows. I often have 10 workspaces open, each one with 3-4 charts. That'd be 40 windows if I were using NT! In TS I can switch between them in just 1 second. It's very fast. Makes it very easy to monitor several markets. I wish NT would catch up with TS on the workspaces...

Yes I've had that happen.

However, I now manually back up workspaces, chart templates and indicators to a flash drive regularly.

I also use the built-in NT backup process about once a week or so.

It has saved me hours of frustration several times.

I use a daily back up to a 2nd hard drive of everything. I use incremental so it's really fast except for the 10th day when it does a full backup. I use true image from acronis for this.

I also use Mozy to backup just my most important files which include all my Ninjatrader files (templates, workspaces, indicators, strategies). The free 2gig account is plenty for this so you don't pay anything! I already have them backed up but I figure having a 2nd offsite backup is a good idea. I highly recommend it, if you sign up please use my link:

Mozy

Finally, once a month I do a full backup with trueimage to a 500gig WD Passport USB drive and I keep this one at work. My 2nd offsite backup for critical files and first offsite backup for non-critical files.

With all that the chances of losing something are next to zero.

NT Workspace Chart Windows in one single window - tracking ID #154

For those of you interested and unaware I thought I could notify that the feature request of having all chart windows in a workspace gathered in one single window has been assigned tracking ID #154.

It will be a day of happiness, delight and when it comes...
