Hi @Darvish

Looking for a relationship between the title of the thread (Ninjatrader Forced Upgrade) and the screenshot you posted.

I did receive a "forced upgrade" warning, and that I must upgrade my NT version to one of those recommended by June 23rd - is that what you're referring to?

Yes, my concern is that,


They can see every time I access the application now.

And without Internet connection I am unable to access the application.

Itís surveillance

It was possible to simply look over charts w/o internet connection in prior versions.

Am I wrong?

Hi Darvish

Unless NinjaTrader has decided to get into the business of selling user data to 3rd parties (I haven't checked their privacy policy), I wouldn't go as far as calling it 'surveillance'.

I am sure there are technical reasons why they implemented this switch and, if you want to ask the question in the NT AMA thread I am sure it will get addressed.

Perhaps you are being too paranoid.

If you are using a 'licensed' copy of Ninjatrader each time you open the software NT7 or NT8 it connects to the "License Server".

(I doubt they monitor when you connect because it is like watching grass grow.)
"Nothing to see here and what you see is so boring and slow no one cares"


This is the way it has been for as long as I have used NT (since 6.5).

If you doubt what I say, before you upgrade, do this:

Disconnect your internet connection and start your copy of NT.
NT will start but will complain that it can not connect to the license server to VERIFY you are using a licensed copy.
When NT finishes loading you will not be able to connect to your account because you are not using the LIVE version.

perhaps this thread should be moved to the main Ninjatrader thread or the ask me anything thread.
