NinjaTrader


Recommended Posts

NinjaTrader has become one of the most widely used trading tools in the USA and is very popular here in the UK because of its rich functionality and excellent support community, custom indicators etc. For example I use range bars with cumulative delta and order flow, none of which is available on the IG or ProRealTime platforms, but they are on Ninja and its add-ons. MT4/5 just does not compete.

 

So my question is whether or not IG intend to link up with the NinjaTrader platform and provide it as a trading platform option? I believe it is the platform of the future. One problem for UK Ninja users is that you need to set up a US trading account to use it. It would be great if you could use Ninja in conjunction with an IG account. It seems IG might be missing a great opportunity if they do not embrace the popularity of NinjaTrader.

Hi , thanks for your message. 

 

Currently we have no plans on adding Ninja Trader functionality, however I have passed this on to our technical support manager as feedback. We periodically collate all feedback, and if there is sufficient client demand then we do of course seriously review such suggestions. However, given a number of things in the IG road map I don't believe that there will be N.T. integration in the short to mid term.

 

I would recommend having a good look at the MT4 and ProRealTime offering as there are a number of third party plugins. MT4 specifically supports millions of traders globally, and their 'Market' is a centralized location where you can expand the software with additional expert advisors and technical indicators.

 

Don't forget that both MT4 and PRT have some great mobile applications which can be used to add flexibility in your trading timetable, and opportunity whilst out and about.

Hi James,

 

Thanks for your reply. I have used both MT4 and PRT, also checked out their plug-ins, neither of which provide what I need.

 

I think IG are missing an opportunity, as the only way retail traders can develop an edge is through innovation. The Ninja community would be a welcome addition I am sure.

Hi, Any new palns in IG roadmap to support Ninja Trader platform? I would be definitely interested. Only way forward is to use latest technologies. MT4 might lot of user base only because most brokers support it, but is frustrating for us users to use a technology from Y2K era. Ninja Trader has evolved with new technologies, and the products available to use in it are far more superior for automated trading now a days. Pls pass on this message to your technical team to re evaluate.

Thanks

Santy

Guest SWING point query help pls

Dear

Can you please suggest what value of N is to be set in swing high and swing low indicator in NT8 for below criteria

For swing highs you want the middle candle’s high to be higher than the highest point on the other two candles.
With a swing low, the candle should be lower than the lowest point on the other two candles.

    • hahaha, and now ... Dylan Davidson @dyl_davidson Holy ****, on the day Biden is sworn in, WHO advises laboratories around the world to reduce the cycle count in PCR Covid testing, which will result in fewer positives!!  WHO Information Notice for IVD Users 2020/05   If you have been reading the thread you will know the high cycle threshold in use for the PCR was a major cause of the very high ratio of false positives (50 - 80%) (if you haven't already have a listen to the 16 min podcast (linked in quoted post) where Harvard Prof explains the different uses for the PCR and the Lateral Flow tests and why we should be using the quick and cheap LFT).
    • I seem to remember reading somewhere that over a certain limit the buying and selling fees are no longer a flat fee and become a percentage of the sale/purchase. Is this true and if so what are the limits and how does one buy or sell above a certain value? I'm talking specifically about equities.  Couldn't find any information on this so any guidance would be welcome. Thanks!
    • I really trade! Here is a trade from this week - The Market is an ETF of the Nasdaq100 Index provided by ishares - CNX1 This was a 2 day Swing trade If you've read the above posts then this is a clear DOUBLE BOTTOM following all the rules mentioned in the posts above ENTRY - Entry was actually set for the high of the Inside bar but the market gapped up and opened at the GREEN horizontal line! which was fine As you can see the DB caused a classic W shape if fulfilled - 2RSI in the <25% Oversold zone = 1 high probability trade potential with target of the swing high of the long leg of the W - as you can see price hit that level this afternoon for a healthy return - This provided a 2R return, "IF" (and we have no control over this) I'd of been triggered in at the high of the Inside bar as planned rather than the gapped entry, the R:R was 4R if stop placed at the swing low or 11R if entry was high of the narrow range IB and stop was at the low of it! - Now in this trade - the intention was the 11R trade but the Gap caused a change of plan THIS IS WHY I TRADE BECAUSE OFTEN THESE TRADES COME OFF INTENDED AS PLANNED - this one didn't but it was still a half decent trade To prove the position - I won't be doing this ever again - very NEARLY got the high! You can SCAN the market EVERY DAY for NARROW RANGE bars - and then when they conform to trading method you employ they offer an ultra high probability trading opportunity with ultra high returns
