API connecting Ninjatrader and Trading Technologies platforms

Does anyone know of an existing API connecting Ninjatrader and Trading Technologies platforms?

I'd like to carry out backtesting, market analysis, and signal generation in Ninja platform, but execute trades through an algorithm designed on TT platform.

FIX protocol

Answer
This post has been selected as an answer to the original posters question Answer


Most of the trade technologies products suport the FIX protocol.
NinjaTrader (i have the unlimited version) has a tradetechnologies coneection.

I played with it and was able to create my own FIX server application...

You should be able to do this straight forward

Can you see your working orders/fills from TT on your Ninja Charts?

Wondering if the connection works both ways...

Yes
You can shoot orders
And you can make a datafeed

But not a datafeed in concurrence
With another active datafeed

You would use the Ninja API and TT API and your own program would be the "middleware" between the two. It would not make sense for someone to make an API to talk between the two since this middleware needs logic and that is what you would need to create.

Not sure i understood your comment or the point you are trying to make ?
Both NT and TT talk FIX.
No need for translating API or creating middle ware.

Hi Guys,
I am interested in this topic because I would like to receive data from a non listed NT provider.

Is it possible to do this? if yes, could you explain in very easy words how to do it?

The provider I would like to receive data from is OpenMarkets (API Trading Services | OpenMarkets Australia I Technology Stockbroker).

I know that they provide the possibility to link Excel to their data feed and other Microsoft applications. I am not sure how to connect NT to them.

It would be greatly appreciated if someone could explain me how to do that since NT support won't do it.

thanking you all in advance.

AG
