roger,

Which Broker do you use for the Ninja 7/IQFeed combination ? I'd wanted this type of combination request from Ninja but I'm been restricted to NT/Zen-Fire combination and an NT/Zen-Fire based Broker.

I use Mirus but it really doesn't matter as long as they are NT compatible. The way it works is, I subscribe to both Zen-Fire AND IQFeed. Then I load IQFeed first, then load Zen-Fire. This makes IQF my primary datafeed for all my charts. When I execute a trade, it sends it via Zen-Fire (which is the only datafeed NT will allow to actually execute the trades. Fine with me. I just don't want to use Zen-Fire for main data until they can utilize 64 bit.

You'll need to contact DTN/IQFeed for the specific data package you need.

Jay Froscheiser
Director, Active Trader Products and Sales
Telvent DTN (Nasdaq: TLVT)
www.iqfeed.net | www.dtniq.com | www.prophetx.com
www.dtn.com
(o):402-399-2816 or 800-485-4000 ext. 2816
(c):402-216-6212

Ask Jay how you can get your exchange fees waived...good savings there. The package I use runs about $80 per month and well worth it.

Roger

Roger,

Thanks.

Could this package you use be the IQFeed Basic Service, which is for $60/month plus an additional stuff ? This should be OK with me if and only if the IQFeed will give me good Bid and Ask data-feed. I'll still contact Jay.

Roger,

Do you use NT 7 64 bit OS version or the NT 32 bit operating on 64 bit OS. As I understand it Zenfire only is available on 32 bit.

Thanks

The average trader won't need all the markets I subscribe to. Jay is the one to ask about the package best suited to your needs.

Thanks

Ninja not impressing me so far... Tradestation again?

Didn't know where to go to get an answer so I apoligize if it doesn't belong here. Don't even have enough posts here to send a PM.

I'm also brand new to Ninjatrader. My problem is I can't figure out how to get an indicator The Wizard wrote.
It's called: MACD BB LINES v2

I have downloaded it to my pc but can't figure out how to get it into NinjaTrader. It's in a zip file... things like this are so much simpler in Tradestation.

Thanks for your help and sorry to bother you,
Scott305

NinjaTrader Control Center - File - Utilities - Import Ninja Script.

Select the zip file (do not unzip it)


For all people who are starting with NinjaTrader or any other platform . If you have totally no experience with any Platform - NinjaTrader, Tradestation, Multicharts, etc. please do not rate that platform publicly.

I don't think that statement similar to "Tradestation is better than NinjaTrader" is worth time to type it if you need help with importing script.

NinjaTrader has lots of free webinars to teach you how to use it. Their support people are fairly responsive to requests sent by email through NinjaTrader.
