If I buy the NinjaTrader with OFA and VCA , does the Conditional Order Routing function come with it? If not how much is it to buy the plugin to go with Ninja Trader?

Thanks.

OFA/Ninja does not have conditional order routing. This feature only exists in the legacy product.

Rather than getting stuck on a list of features, just download the free version and see if you realize a benefit. Go from there.

Everyone thinks trading software is going to either make them rich or be a total rip off. If you cant see the benefit in the first 10 minutes of messing with OFA/FREE, there is no feature in another version that's going to blow your mind.

DB, I have purchased enough trading software to know the software doesn't make you rich. You have a product on your website and it is not clear, at least to me, that it doesn't run on the Ninja platform. That is why I asked.

I am willing to buy software that may make my job trading a little easier. I do put in my time studying and have a library of books and articles. I have my trade setups and feel they are good, I have been using other tools for order flow and found yours looks worth a try so I purchased the Ninja Package for the OFA/NInja and VCA/Ninja. I did find your site a little confusing as a lot on there does not work with the NInja/OFA which you explained in an earlier post, thanks.

After purchasing I realized there is not a pdf or video that goes over setup and different settings for the different instruments. I am sure I can figure it out but having a base to go by would be a great help. I am sure others that purchase it would appreciate same, to save time. Let me say that I have not had the opportunity to view the introduction video, in which you may answer all my questions, and if that be so please accept my apology for wasting yours and others time.

Thank you.

I just want to say after my previous post, DB has already answered my question. The software does come with pdfs, which went to my documents folder in the zip file. I never even thought about looking there. Thank you very much DB.

I also want to say that is the fastest service I have ever experienced.

Thank you very much.

click03,

Software aside, the thing we are most known for is our attention to clients needs. We're service-led and we will get you everything you need. I spent a good deal of the morning logging in remotely to assist clients with issues they were having. That's just how we do business - we work for you when you become a client. If you read horror stories about some lack of support coming from OFA I would say that person is not a real client or there is more to the story than what's being posted.

Outside of that, the download should have come with 2 PDFs... Since you posted this, I have already emailed them, replied to you on our forum and offered to assist you directly in setup. That's just who we are.

And yes. The website is disjointed to say the least. When you trade all day and support clients the way we do, the store front sometimes looks a mess. That's my fault entirely.

Let me know what you need and you will have it.

Nice to try the OFA software albeit the 'lite' version on Ninja. It's been interesting watching it for the odd half hour here and there. I like the uncluttered layout and simplicity of the design.

You have talked about momentum in a couple of your videos (including the one here). Assuming that you have the context for a trade (e.g. the break down of the M that you used in your examples here). How do you determine that the momentum is real and it is not absorption going on? It's a tricky proposition at the best of times and of course the bid can firm up as quickly as it disapears. Just wondering your thoughts on the matter.

Agreed. Free webinar classes are generally designed to introduce a concept and not meant as an exhaustive resource on the subject. I tend to use phrases like "for our purpose today..." or "Let's use some very simple rules for today's lesson..." This is because without digging deep into Order Flow logic it's pretty difficult to cover all the bases. Very often what I describe as "momentum" in a webinar can actually be an accumulation at the bid or ask instead. At OFA we call this inverse action a "sweep". It has some identifiable characteristics which separate it from a true momentum action - but in the end every study/tool/indicator is only confirmed by price action fulfilling the desired result (more than not).

We have some new tools coming out which greatly assist in allowing the user to define and test momentum, sweeping and exhaustive patterns. Like anything of value, OFA requires guidance, comprehension and practical application (time and experience).

Glad you are enjoying the free version!

@OrderFlowAnalytics
I've seen a screenshot of the "Order Flow Trade Manager" which acts as a helper to exit trades. It catches my attention, because i think order flow analysis can move the trailing stops more precise. Because i don't want add another chart to doing that manually, the described tool matches my needs. Where i can find more information about it?

Hi DB

Kindly have another data vendor eSignal for historical backfill.
eSignal carry bid ask tick data and covers more derivatives exchanges than iqFeed.

Cheers...eric

As most of you know Kinetick is a private label of another feed designed specifically to interface NinjaTrader. Because of the specific use they do not have a way for external applications to program directly to the feed (no API). Our work around for this is to export the data in real-time from NinjaTrader with a NinjaScript from a tick chart. While not the best possible solution (for many reasons) it does work.

So yes, but there are a whole lot of limitations on what you can do with it.

DB

Hi DB...for the OFA/Ninja using iqFeed..just want to know whether the tick data used to drive the OFA chart comes from the Ninja Tick File itself or from another set of tick data stored by OFA/Ninja. If latter is true, Will it build up over time. User need to know how to delete this if needed..thanks...eric

Cheers...eric
