I saw on Dukascopy site that to use their FIX API there's a $100k minimum deposit required. Multicharts uses their FIX API, is the same for DNT bridge?

Take your Pips, go out and Live.

I have been using the bridge on a strictly demo account

When the demo account expires, can you simply get another 2 weeks (unlike Mirus)? Does the bridge have a demo time limit?
Thanks

Thanks.
I notice Duka have extensive historical data, do you know of any work arounds that would get the data loaded into NT7?
How many people are using the NT/bridge/Duka at the moment?
Is it a work in progress or is it fully sorted?
The Duka website says the demo account is for 14 days, do you know if that is continuously renewable?
Is there a time limit on the free bridge demo?
In the event of loss of connection, are there any synching issues upon reconnection for trade position/ account position etc.
In your experience, what else do I need to know to make this system work smoothly?
Thanks for your help. This may be the solution.

Thanks Stem1. Here is the clarification to your questions.

To use historical data from Dukascopy with Ninja Trader, we need to convert the Dukascopy's historical tick data into Ninja readable format and then import the data into Ninja Trader.

As DNT Bridge demo is available for unlimited time, I don't have exact number about how many people are using it at the moment. By looking at the queries I get, may be 40-50+

DNT Bridge development is already completed and DNT Bridge is ready to use on Dukascopy Live account. You can use it with your micro account also. You don't need to have 100K in your account.

Dukascopy Demo accout expires after 14 day bu you can create new account after 14 days again and again. means new Demo account is just few clicks away.

No time limit to use DEMO of DNT Bridge. When you install DNT bridge then you can use it on live account also for 30 days. Even after 30 days, you can continue using DNT bridge on Dukascopy Demo account

In case of loss of connections, DNT Bridge tries to reconnect 3 times. If it fails to connect, It waits for 10 second and tries again 3 times. If it can't connect then you need reconnect it manually on clicking on Connect button.
Even after disconnecting and connecting again, DNT Bridge handles orders placed before disconnection.
if you exit the DNT Bridge and start again then order placed before exiting the DNT bridge won't be handle by DNT Bridge.

To use DNT Bridge effectively you just need reliable internet connection. Keep DNT Bridge running. Make sure data feed is ON in DNT Bridge and Order execution is ON. and all orders from NT will be send to Dukascopy.
Order modification/cancellation will also be send to Dukascopy.
In short: DNT Bridge should be running and (connected to Duakascopy of course)

Thanks,
ToolsForTrader

Thanks Trader.Jon for reporting this.
This error occurs because of certificate issues. I am working on fix for this to find machine and OS independent fix for such errors.

LukeGeniol,
To use DNT Bridge you don't need to have 100K deposit. You can use DNT Bridge with any Dukascopy account of any size.

Stem1,
For live trading DNT Bridge has 30 days limit.
To use DNT Bridge on Dukascopy Demo account, there is no time limit. You can use all features of DNT Bridge for unlimited time on Dukascopy Demo account.

Thanks for your answers.

....."In case of loss of connections, DNT Bridge tries to reconnect 3 times. If it fails to connect, It waits for 10 second and tries again 3 times. If it can't connect then you need reconnect it manually on clicking on Connect button."

Is there an option to enable the DNT Bridge to keep trying to reconnect untill it is successful (like NT)? I live in Far North Queensland at the end of the line and my experience with Gain and IB shows some disconnections can last hours.

Also, because the profit targets and stop losses are held on Duka's server, is it correct that once these have been placed I could be disconnected indefinitly and the PT and SL would still be executed?

...."To use historical data from Dukascopy with Ninja Trader, we need to convert the Dukascopy's historical tick data into Ninja readable format and then import the data into Ninja Trader.Thanks"

I'm not familiar with this process, is historic tick data standardized with all brokers or does everyone do it their own way? Could some exitsting method be adapted? I have found it somewhat critical for tuning Automated Strategies to use the same ECN/Data for trading as for testing, this narrows the gap between historical and live trading.

Thanks
