Can someone let me know where we stand on NinjaTrader trades importing? A friend was asking and I was unsure.

I'm not entirely sure, but I think it still uses an older version (3.9 or 4.0 maybe). Other than that, it should work, although I don't know how the trade grouping and so on works. To be honest, I haven't used it yet as I enter my trades manually.
@petrmac should be able to answer all questions as the importer is his baby...

I am still here:-)

I think the importer is completed and functioning. I don't know if anyone has tried it after the last update, as I got no feedback.
It works pretty well for me with the exception, that I am not able to use the latest version of journal. There is a workaround though - use the tool to generate the new file and then import from the latest journal.

Maybe another journal enhancement suggestion

Hi @vvhg,

maybe there is one thing I would appreciate in the journal: possibility to filter out a specific time range and display the statistics only for that (i.e. I want to see how I did in the last month compared to the previous.)
The time statistics is a very nice feature, but lacks some of the statistics present on the Overview tab.

Since I am not allowed to upload any pictures to the summary of this thread, I will put it here:


Latest version can be found HERE.

1. export the trades from the NT (Account Performance -> Trades). Use the currency or points setting and then right click on the grid and Save as CSV file. You should get something like this: NinjaTrader Trade List, 2_6_2012 - 2_7_2012 -replay training.csv
2. Open the tool and import:
Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).

- select the delimiter first. If you are in the US, don't change anything, "," is correct symbol
- click the button "Load the backtest" which will open a dialog that will let you point to the csv file with the trades.
- Upon loading the file the tool reads the lines as separate trades
- if you have the file in currency select the "Currency" for the CSV data units. Otherwise keep "Points"
- Leave the locale as en_US unless you are in Europe
- If you want to pre-fill the strategy name as entry name, select Automated for the Trades handling, otherwise select Discretional trading results
3. The tool allows to save either as a new file or append to existing
- Currently the appending to the existing journal does not work due to some compatibility issue with the latest journal version (some link?). I get malformed result. Perhaps someone can test it also and pinpoint the issue.

There is a workaround - export as new file and then import from the new journal - this works.

The trade grouping was largely re-worked in the latest version.
I take the entry time and put all trades with same time together as T1 - T3.
It works for me well with the ATM strategy and automated strategy alike. So if you enter with three targets they would be grouped to one trade only in the resulting journal.

It would be nice if you could try that @petrmac and if it doesn't work tell me what I have to change.

The time statistics is a very nice feature, but lacks some of the statistics present on the Overview tab.

Ya, that would be a nice feature in deed, but I fear it would be a real nightmare to implement. Could you perhaps use the pivot table tab instead?
