Well, I suppose this is encouraging. Ninja release a Beta to 3rd party partners and NinjaScript Consultants over the weekend. With their track record on this I would not anticipate using NT 7 for live trading until after the first of the year.
That being said NT 7 will not by itself make you a successful trader.
That was interesting. Sounds like some dealbreakers for me though but I'm sure they'll fix it. I applied to be a beta tester. I will see if I get accepted.
One thing that surprised me is that they're now adding features that have been in TS for a long time. TS was way ahead but unfortunately they're dropping the ball and are no longer innovating. TS hasn't changed much in a while and NT is catching up.
Now I have to decide if I want to install a 64-bit OS. I'm concerned about all my other applications no longer working. I prefer not to have a PC for trading and another for the rest cause I do lots of personal stuff while waiting for setups.
Overall I don't see anything that will be revolutionary for the trading I'm doing now. I don't use multi-timeframes or many indicators (just a few moving averages). I'm keeping it simple.
"I tried to download additional replay data, and it said it wasn’t connected to a data source. I connect to eSignal and the feature works. Oh, so NT7 gets the replay data from your data provider I think… smart! I thought they were hoarding zen-fire data or something, but this makes even more sense."
Now THAT has me interested... Does that mean it it can replay imported historical tick data?
I have the same decision about 64-bits to do. NT7 supports 64, but...
Depending on your broker and his interface to ninja the 64 version will not work and a 32 version will start... A list will be published by NT.
