Welcome to

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

Hello, I'm still on 7.0.2 final.

I don't like running bleeding edge betas.

Futures Edge on FIO

How much money do you need to trade futures successfully?

Had to upgrade due to sp1 on windows7.

So far no problems.

3rd party indicators

I've done the b3 to R4 migration on Win7ProSP1/32 and that was easy.
I've done the R2 to R4 migration on Server2008R2SP1/64 and that was more of a challenge.

FWIW I always keep a copy of the Strategy and Indicator folders as backup, as well as the XML templates I use. Over and above the Ninja backups.

R5 will probably be what the first general release of Ninja 7 should have been IMHO. May 2011 maybe?

Static data management (aka Instrument Manager and Session Manager) are tools that really need to be understood/exploited by end users depending on their particular needs and I can see that being an ongoing source of support requests.

The new SecureTeam CliSecure thing seems pretty cool. That is a new area for me but it gives me some ideas for protecting and/or time limiting IP and I think it will actually open up some new development avenues that may further establish Ninja in its space. I don't know if that is good or bad, but it is what it is.

I haven't, will wait until they have had it out longer, especially where 7.02 is working fine, why risk it.

for those who have more than one computer, suggest upgrading the least important computer and preferably one you don't use for live trading. Run for a few days taking some sim trades and see what happens.

That's what I do and that way I don't get myself into problems that are a challenge to overcome.
