Royalflush,

Agree with you 100% regarding stops.
I'm still supporting point of view that better to have 2 separate frontends for charting and execution.
I will check Market Delta videos of new version, however, I looking to find frontend+data feed which offers really pro level, I'm affraid even TT still retail level.
Have you traded using Ninja 6.5 ?

Krgds,
Andrew

About the stops, I hope in your trading you don't always reverse instead of just closing positions, it could generate big loses, that is why you need to have a defined trading plan, and you need to have concrete evidence that it is a reversal & not just a correction or pullback.

Anyway, it seems that the new MarketDelta version 10.01 b10 (check their support videos) has replicated all the Nanotrader ChartTrader Active DOM features, & even has improved on it, therefore Ninja is becoming more & more obsolete, unless... Ninja 7 catches up to this platform,

good traging

I just had Ninja fry my video, and Dell suppot concluded that it was a hardware issue and that my motherboard needed replacing! Luckily it was software only issue and was finally resolved (I hope). What I did to cause the bug was to fiddle with add/remove target on the static superdom -- use with caution!!

"good traging"

Traging. That should DEFINITELY be added to the English language. Great word. It works somehow.

But then again: what could it mean? Nothing coming to mind yet.....

suggestions?
( or is this an inappropriately frivolous post?!)

Are rumors correct that Ninja 7 will have update rate for charts limited to 100 ms ?
What will be with DOM also some limitations or it will be still the same with raw ticks ?

Somebody above mention Photon. There is a brokerage linked to them that is offering $2.00 R/T which for active scalpers will more than make up for $150 per month leasing. Looks interesting:

Hmm, 100ms, is this a big problem ?
Their is another post, a question about latency between New-Zeland and Chicago, the ping is not great between these two places, sounds logical, so let me say something about this:
1/ the big guys, I mean the very big guys, don't use NT. As they don't use other retail trader software like MultiCharts or MetaStock. I'm not saying these are low quality piece of software, I'm just saying they have home-made software, for most of them. And the "not home-made" software are not the one retail traders have access to.
2/ the main trading activity is made by robots, most of them are home-made too, and these bots (and the underlying hardware/network) is very different from what retail traders have access to. Here, in this world, the race is a race for the s (microsecond), not the ms (1ms = 1000s)...
3/ do we want (and are we able) to fight with the big guys with our high-latency networks/retail softwares ? Hmm, I don't think so...

Ok, a 2 seconds delay is maybe not acceptable, but 100ms or 500ms, is it going to really change something ?

ps: unfiltered ticks afficionados, please no

Their website seems to have been built by a 10 years old kid ("Copyright 2008 by The Photon Group"), that doesn't soud very serious...
Maybe they are, but don't look like.
