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.

I saw somewhere this year a response from Ninja Support stating they had no intention to handle OCO orders at the server in the foreseeable future....that speaks volumes.

Hi Nick,
@NinjaTrader does have server side OCO, but it depends on the broker.

Here is a post from back in 2008 Where do your orders reside? so I think someone in Ninja Support mis informed you.

Math. A gateway drug to reality.

Happy with ninja

I used TT for 10 yrs and started using Ninja in 2012. Had some issues with Nnja in early 2014 because my system would occasionally freeze up. I executed Ninja thru Patsystems. Because of my issues freezing up earlier this year, I switched to T4. When Ninja bBrokerage started, I switched back to Ninja and have been very pleased. Speed etc has been excellent. I am happy with ninja.

If u had issues with ninja previously, ninja brokerage may be a big improvement.

Yeah, I am good with NT7 -- had started using it around 2012. After watching the set-up videos and reading the Support Forum...I was able to download it, open it, set-up the charts and fiddle with it within couple hours!

I do like the Chart Trader! It's cool having your stops and targets be seen right on the chart and are fully adjustable by just click and drag! Can't have a robust trading management without the ATM! That is gold right there!

I just heard that the P&F charting in NT7 is not quite of to par! Maybe NT8 will solve that problem. The strategy I am learning now may use P&F charts for correct S&R without the noise.

Yeah...looking forward to NT8 -- hope it is just not too complicated to re-learn.

I'm using NT 7 it's been great but the only scary thing that it to me last night was hearing the automated voice saying, "order filled". I checked and chated w my broker and fortunately there weren't any orders. That was scary.

Hi everybody, and @NinjaTrader, did not find or know a proper place to post this-so here it is:
Why is it that so many times you see someone post a problem here on (formerly BMT)(maybe not so much here) But definitely on the NT support forum and the response is to Un-install and Re-install NT?
Or go to this folder and delete, or this folder and rename.............????

Well, in my case although irritating, probably the correct approach because my configuration is a bit weird and maybe even messy. I don't run NT on a machine only used for trading and I have three drives, have moved my Documents folder off the C: drive and all that is running within Parallels on an iMac. So, the above step simply re-establishes as close as possible to a simple, clean installation; and from there if I still need to alter things, at least I can more easily see at what point it breaks. I don't get random failures. They are always due to some particular change in my system such as enabling file sharing between OSX and Windows.
