TradeStation or NinjaTrader?

Hello All,

I hope that you are well.

I am looking for comparisons of TradeStation and NinjaTrader. I have done some Googling but most of what I find is either old/out of date or reads like an advertisement.

I traded for a while about 10 years ago, exclusively ES, YM and YG. This time I will be trading only GC’s.

I have NinjaTrader installed and am learning the functionalities and attempting to find the indicators and drawing tools I need for my trading method and determining if I can either use them as programmed or modify them to fit my method. There is also an external tool which was available for TS but may be available for NT.

When I was trading before TS was the ‘tool of the pros’ and NT was still considered to be for amateurs but I am seeing indications that this may no longer the case.

Assuming that I can find that all of the indicators and drawing tools in both NT and TS are equally available and the external tool is available for both, are there any fundamental reasons to choose one over the other? Things like feed viability/reliability, executions, ease or greater versatility of customization/programming? Any other considerations?

I am liking the NT SuperDOM for order entry and management. Is there similar functionality in TS?

I qualify for the ‘TradeStation Salutes’ program. With that it looks as though TS may have the advantage for commissions and fees, perhaps significantly so.

Thanks,

Steve

they r both awesome. cannot be really compared. peeps who compare.....i dont know what 2 say

it depends on what you want it to do. If its just DOM....any DOM is kool.

sorry could not be explicit...as it was very generic answer. Both have very very unique functions.

I have both, I only use NT for charting because I purchased indicators from a few vendors and it was only coded for NT. For execution I prefer TradeStation-RJObrien. It is still used by professional traders especially those who are into automating their strategy. I also know some ex Goldman traders that use TS for their opening order trades and tie it into excel but that is a whole other animal to talk about. Data feeds incl historical tick data on TS imo are better than what's available on NT7 or 8. You have a lot of newbie type traders who lean towards NT because the learning curve seems easier. I would try TS if you haven't, their new commish structure makes it very cheap to get going with them and their tutorials are on par with Ninja; compare execution yourself and maybe use both like I do

Thank you planetmoto. Just the kind of information I was looking for.

Do NinjaScript and TradeStation EasyLanguage have similar capabilities?

Ninja Trader is based on C# which many will tell you is more current and allows you to do more. I'm not sure that is entirely true though since TradeStation from an automated strategy testing standpoint is far more powerful than Ninja. That being said C# is easier to code up than Easy Language probably because it is more widely known. But most programmers can pick up easy language if they put in some time they also have courses to learn it if you're so inclined
