How would you change NinjaTrader 7?

OK so now NT 7 final is out. No more beta, it's the real deal.

My question to all you NT users and fans is simple -- how would you change NT7? What would you add, remove, or change in the product? Why would you make those changes?

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.

When you get an error importing an indicator you have to select a random indicator and compile it to find the errors.
Then go out, find and delete the problems.

I would like to be able to delete the offending problem at the compile mode.

I agree, that would be great!

I find it very annoying that if you make any changes on the chart you lose all the accumulated ticks or whatever on your indicator for ex Volume pressure from indicator warehouse.

Would like all to the data available at least for the session.

Yeah, that's called lack of persistent bid/ask data. You can use GomRecorder and rewrite your indicators to get around the problem, but I agree the platform should have persistent bid/ask built-in.

Keep 'em coming

Ok!!!

Not a big deal but when you enter a new symbol in the instrument manager you have to fill out info on it.

Would like to just enter any new symbol in Insturment Manager without doing so.

Do what apple did, they made a release of their os called leopard, halted new functions and spend all programming resources on re-releasing it but optimised for speed and called it snow leopard

i would do the same, stop adding extra functionality, nt has enough, but optimise the code for speed meaning rewriting complete parts of the program, in assembler or c++ if needed

Interesting thread.

1)
Why do we need to redefine our parameters in the data series window each time we add a new instrument. Why not creating the equivalent of a session template but for the data series?

2) How is it that i can't change the position of an indicator in the indicator window? A simple arrow Up/Down would do the trick. Once an indicator is added to our list, the list is fixed in stone. Hey! we are in 2010 and object oriented programming is almost 50 years old. If you offer the user the possibility to create a list of item then give him the choice to do whatever he wants with this list in terms of order or arrangement.

3) when we import an indicator, why don't we get the name of it for god's sake ? Shit, it's so easy to do. Instead we only know that the indicator has imported successfully. Hey! we are in 2010. Ever heard the term feedback or usability test.

4) To the Ninja team, never heard the expression 'drag and drop'. Why is it so complex to add an indicator on my chart, or add an indicator to another indicator so that it uses as inputs the result of another indicator. In case you don't know, look at Metatrader and although it is considered as a dinosaur it has this ability to add indicators by the simple and user friendly drag and drop feature.

5) can't believe you never thought about giving Ninja the possibility to act as a server for any other application that can act as client. Hey! Excel (or it's equivalent) is almost on every PC out there. Trading is for many a mathematical endeavor and traders in case you don't know pass half of their time analysing datas. Why did you not give this possibility considering it is an easy to procedure to add if you are the developer.

Enough rambling! I feel better now.
