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.

I have seen a number of postings on NT's forum about members complaining about having to wait for a new bar before their trade executes.

ouch .... IF that was accurate, I guess that the only solution would be to have a new bars array of 1 tick to put the order on ??

Hi Sam,

You are referring to a virtual machine, correct? Considering that you are using NT7, are you still running XP or have you installed Win7 ? What version of VirtualBox?

Your input, as usual, is greatly appreciated

I'm not sure it's the right thread for this, but why not .

No 7 for my hosted machines, the OS of an hosted machines only need a network for getting the data feed and sending orders and ack, and a cpu with enough memory for Ninja and the strategies logic, dot.
So my hosts are running XP 32 bits, but a sort of "light" version, no anti-virus, only needed services/processes (just after boot it's something like 80mb used, and less than 20 processes, approx.).
I think it's possible to build a light 7, but XP is fine, and when something works fine, I don't touch it !
Same thing for VirtualBox, I'm using 3.1.4 and 3.1.6, the physical machines are XP 64, Ubuntu 8.10/9.04 ad MacOsX 10.6.3. The idea for VirtualBox is to upgrade only if you really need it; in the past I had some issues with the Virtualbox updates, so I'm very careful with this now (clone the hosted machine, copy the images on another host, update VirtualBox on the other host, let it run 1 or 2 weeks, then update the production host).

Ninja strategies must be run with a paper or a demo account first, and not 1 or 2 hours, but at least 2 weeks, and the strat developper will have check that the behavior is 100% correct.
