NinjaTrader is a great and innovative tool due to the fact that it can be integrated with C# class libraries with ease. This is the reason why I did choose NinjaTrader for my development purposes. Of course it can be used only for indicator development with it's script using simplistic annotations on it's chart display. Depends on what you want to do. NT8 seems to be a much more open environment, judging from what has been said until now. If so, developing really complex customisations would be a real fun. Also, NT has great choice of brokers and data vendors. My approach to overcome some limitations of NT,was to run my own custom platform parallel with NT and utilize all the other bells and whistles (like brokers, data vendors, graph gizmos,standard indicators,back-testing) to NT and do some quite complex algorithmic computations totally independent from NT on my custom application space. This is one way to approach NT. Having said that, NT8 may bring some more clarity with their open framework, which may make customization more easier and more fun. Lets wait and see.
