Thanks for your reply.Im using ninja since long time and hard for me to switch for an other charting software.
i did check button and other platforms.in fact i did use Tsim plus for live trades with ib.In my opinion,one plat
form,with dom and charts is better than u have 2 or three for different matters.SPecially,if some one want to use a STRATEGY.NINJA has good features for testing and or using a Strategy.

I have to disagree with some of the statements... I rather have separate platforms for order entry and charting.. well, not really... I rather have separate computer overall for Order Entry from Charting... which ends up being at times a separate platform..

I gave up on trying to have both things integrated since every single platform out there, when making any changes to the charting setup will freeze your dom.. NT7 is not exempt of that at all, actually it accentuates the issue..

I do like the Nt7 ATM and DOM as well, which is why I actually own the license for what I think and have found to be a rather unstable piece of software... but what I hate about it is that I cant use it with IB at all since functionality breaks quite often.. so I say Nt7 is great for ZenFire/Rithmic and for TT to some extent... I have not tried MBT or anything else, besides IB... so as long as you stick to ZenFire/Rithmic, no need to do anything else.. if you happen to have multiple FCM's to hedge or trade different markets, or because you want a separate feed or have different purposes for your account (in other words, for whatever reason) then as long as ZenFire on both you are still fine with Nt7...

in any event, I dont use BT for charting, though I love their inverted charts with fx futures for jpy. I used it for replacing IB's Order Entry... and it was excelllent, but costly, at it.. the developer keeps up with IB API and heck, knows about it as much as the IB's own developers.. so unlike NT, he fixes any issues immediately and tests the releases throughly...

Anyone having trouble using NinjaTrader with VF?

I am just about complete with setting up my new account at Velocity Futures. I have a live license of NinjaTrader and have the Trading Technologies feed connected. As I have been comparing the data feeds with my TT Trader charts with my account at ETRADE, I have noticed some pauses in the data flow on the NinjaTrader charts. I have decided to open up my account at Velocity Futures in large measure due to reviews and recommendations on this site. Is anyone having trouble with data pauses, especially during heavy volume times who is using NinjaTrader with their account at Velocity Futures? My trading style is mostly scalping on futures so pauses are obviously not desirable.

I scalp as well.. have not had issues.. but my I dont chart with NT7... only use the DOM and nothing else.. my chart feed is IQFeed... try the following.. get pingplotter (there is afree version) and enter the IP for ORDER/PRICE and just keep it running.. capture history and it will tell you if your latency increases when the issue takes place.. so if there are issues you will certainly see it, increase your sampling size and have it test every 1sec... oh, you wont be really able to ping the target if you are using Velocity.. but you will get to the gateway.. 157.130.111.126 which is what you want to ping..

I will test your suggestion

I got disconnected 3 or 4 times today very briefly earlier this morning. They said some users were having trouble logging into the FIX. After they restarted it on their end, I did not have another issue.

Velocity Leader Board

this is the part I truly love about velocity..the leaderboard... it allows you to measure up against others and see what with discipline and a plan you can make happen as well... at least is what I use to measure myself against.. this is just a snapshot as of this morning... I always track DOW and MAX... they are always competing with each other...

I have been less than impressed with the reliability of the data feed, not as bad as zen, but get disconnected too often. I really don't understand why the futures only feeds have so many problems. I don't ever remember losing my TDA feed and IB feed has gone out only twice that I know of. Maybe because they are small?

That's pretty cool. Are those PnL values net commissions?

yep, net comms... however, the trade vol is made up.. randomly generated by the leaderboard... so other than 0, which means the trader has been carrying the position overnight and for a long time, one has to figure out the # of cars by the average GL per car.. in other words, not hard to figure out the account size and number of cars trading.. here is the latest one... as I said, it makes you want to focus, learn and be disciplined, to compete with them...
