I became pretty disillusioned with NT years ago. I've been using it for maybe six years now. Your comment hit home about the more you use it the more you realise all the...

Sorry, it sounds just like spin. If ZF wanted to improve core support they could have just stuck a server in London to deal with NYSE Liffe. As for concentrating on core 'in demand' exchanges, I...

I'm just about to switch from Mirus/Zen Fire, probably to AMP. This is because Mirus/Zen Fire have casually dropped trading in DAX and FTSE futures, to "improve their service"

Two buttons to cycle back and forwards through trades on a chart - i.e. press button for forward trade and the chart jumps to the next trade entry. This would be a huge time saving on large charts...

You can't get bid/ask, so you have little confidence as to whether your trade would have happened in reality. That's maybe not too bad if your timescale is a couple of hours and you use market entry,...

This is so crucial. You are completely correct. For me, a fully automated day trader, backtest is pretty much useless. I transitioned a while ago to using only replay, which is just about OK for...

For this very reason, I'm rarely connected when I run backtests. I usually just load and new data since the last load when starting up Ninja (through DTN) then disconnect and run all my testing. This...

Replace?? What a poor idea. With cut and paste and putting common code in a seperate re-usable file it's fairly quick to develop code. I can see why a smaller language would be useful for some...
