Here is a brief summary of some of NINJA TRADER CEO, webinar points

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

We appreciate the time to spend with us discussing NinjaTrader and the current Zenfire situation. As the ZenFire situation continues to evolve, we are posting a few of the key items discussed during today’s webinar.

What is Continuum?

Continuum is a division of CQG and provides technology for order routing and market data services.
To convert your license key to Continuum, please click here http://www.ninjatrader.com/LicenseKe...-Continuum.php
Historical data and server side OCO’s are supported

What are the differences of the NinjaTrader Continuum adapter between R19 and R20?

R19 and earlier, the Continuum adapter only providers order routing services. You are required to subscribe to Kinetick (Kinetick - Streaming real time quotes and historical market data) at additional fees to receive streaming and historical market data. R19 is required for clients of Dorman FCM.
R20 and later, the Continuum adapter have been updated to include streaming and historical market data services. You are no longer required to subscribe to Kinetick. R20 is available at any FCM where Continuum is available excluding Dorman FCM.

You can download R19 or R20 from here NinjaTrader stock, futures and forex charting software and online trading platform. Download registration.


I am a ZenFire client, where should I go first for information related to all NinjaTrader connectivity options?

For ZenFireusers, please review Advisory #22 at the following link NinjaTrader Advisory 22


If I want to upgrade to a multi-broker license key to keep my Mirus/Dorman broker as an option, but also use another broker, how do I do so? How much?

Upgrade to Multi Broker lifetime license for existing Single Broker lifetime license at a cost is $300 which is a 40% discount off the standard $500 cost (a $200 discount)
If you currently do not have a lifetime license, but a Direct Edition license, you may try the live standard edition license for 2 months at no cost when you sign up for a quarterly subscription

Please email sales[at]ninjatrader.com to take advantage of these offers.



How are TT Credits managed with Continuum? Rithmic?

By default, Continuum and Rithmic offer a Dynamic SuperDOM and Chart Trader which do not require TT Credits. If you prefer trading with a Static SuperDOM, please email sales[at]ninjatrader.com to enable your license key for use with Static SuperDOM which requires the purchase of TT credits. For more information on TT credits and how to purchase, please click here: http://www.ninjatrader.com/purchase-...on-credits.php

The issue is with the number of times you've offered it.

I'm fine with people sharing their experiences. You've shared yours.

Mike

I've been with AMP and Mirus, concurrently. AMP has yet to fail me, while Mirus already did, big time.

@khaled514 the shortened links you copied/pasted that contain " ... " are broken.

Perhaps Ray can repost the original.

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.

Moderator Note


A reminder to vendors:

This situation has been fluid and I've kept hands off so users can get information they are looking for.

But going forward we will return to our no self-promotion policy. This means if you are a vendor and you make a post that in my opinion is designed for self-promotion, the post will be removed and depending on the situation you may be banned.

futures.io (formerly BMT) is built on this policy and it has served us well for years.

Users: please help the vendors follow the rules. You can do this by not putting them in a situation where they might break the rules. If you have questions for a specific vendor, use the appropriate vendor review or brokerage thread to ask that question. You can also contact them via Private Message directly.

I've been with AMP and Mirus, concurrently. AMP has yet to fail me, while Mirus already did, big time.

I too happen to with AMP (previously with Mirus before AMP) as well as with TD. Today I decided to close out one of two accounts I have with AMP not because of service issues but because they have failed to impress me when it comes to them promptly answering emails on either a support, billing, or other issue. In the interim while setting up for what I think will be a great transition I am also halving the funds remaining in my other account at AMP.

Moreover and to the point, for every time I have had to phone-in on a support related issue it almost seems as though it's way too troubling or an effort for someone to answer my questions. Don't get me wrong, I think the NT/CQG connectivity I presently have is far better than what I had come to experience with Mirus/Zenfire. But putting aside all other issues troubling Mirus I have to give credit where credit it is due and with that I can say that at least Mirus support would make an equitable effort on their part to take care of me the customer. Since I am the customer, I feel you have to earn my business and not the other way around.

For a about two weeks now I've been demoing the Optimus Futures NT/Rithmic connectivity and have found it to be even more stable than CQG. Oh yes I do get those periodic disconnects with CQG just like I used to with Zenfire though less frequent. Aside from what is expected, a minimum level or quality of service, the support I've gotten from Matt Zimberg there at Optimus is far superior bar none. Later on while digging through the forums here on Big Mike's I had come to find that Matt is also the President of Optimus Futures. Now who would of thunk that Mattz would take precious time out of his everyday to field questions when he could just as easily delegate it to someone in his staff. I guess its a lesson that the many of the countless Presidents at AMP Futures should learn to mimick.

Oh and I also opened an account just today at Optimus Futures and wonder why it took me this long.

Not angry. Just telling it like it is.
