Welcome to

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

Ninja T&S Trades Above and Below the Market

Using Time and Sales I regulary see prints showing trades that have taken place above and below the market, where price on the DOM has not yet traded. I sent an email to Ninja Support to explain how this is possible and they suggested I contact one of their 3rd party educators - simply not good enough really. So please can someone explain how Ninja's T&S can print prices where the DOM has not yet traded.

I believe it has been covered in this thread:

Or in one of the various other NT threads.

But the summary, from what I recall, was that up until recently and with NT7 final, the Zen Fire connection was in fact filtered even though it wasn't supposed to be. Enough people finally convinced NT of this, and they asked Zen Fire then realized they were on the "wrong" server.

I believe the solution was to 1) make sure you have NT7 final, 2) delete the zen fire connection, 3) re-create the zen fire connection. All steps mandatory from my understanding to be put on the new server.


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.

Hopefully someone will correct me if I'm wrong, but I think those trades are an artifact of Ninja or zen-fire getting behind in reading the data. I don't think it's actually possible for a trade to occur above bid or below ask - I think the market just moved too fast for Ninja or zen-fire to keep up.
