NT used to be for multiple brokers then NinjaTrader Brokerage came along and so were almost all 3rd parties killed.

I do understand this, but if you are trading only index futures, and you have 5 different strategies then 2 brokers are not enough.

Please be nice to all, like Multicharts, they are slowly taking away customers from NT, and to be honest, I am also considering moving along with them. But I really like NT and I do like their support.

I think he may mean like a precut template of 8/12/16 small windows, etc, so you dont have to try and fit 16 small screens into the large monitor frame. Just something I have thought as well, but never brought up.


But, in the meantime ...

Check out window mgmt utilities like WinSplit Revolution.
Last I checked, WinSplit is free.

It has hot keys that can place and size windows.
Extremely useful tool for multi-monitor setups.

These kinds of programs (there are many alternatives,
some free, some not) are an extremely useful addition
to your multi-monitor Windows setup.

Just my 2.

I wish Ninjatrader would keep up to date with its core technology ie. .net framework.

A more user friendly wizard for making custom Market Analyzer columns using NT8 standard indicator combinations, sometimes WYSIWYG for non coders.

Delta signal alerts for absorption, stacked imbalances etc.. add to the volumetric bars.

Interesting ... not sure if you're serious, but if you are ...

Why can't you hook that puppy up yourself using NT's AT Interface and custom OIF files?

Name these text files as "NinjaTrader 7/incoming/oif.txt" and bam! -- instant hook-up!

<off-topic, sorry Mike>

Searching for OIF found this...............Here's one I started 12/22/2023 but same thoughts. If you're still around what happened to that thread you suggested back then?

Is anyone writing a script for NT8 to import order instructions Order Instruction Files (OIF) txt from another charting app. I can get my Ensign Charting app to generate any text I want upon certain conditions being met. Is there anyone writing a script for Ninja to import Ensign's txt to activate NT8's F4(BUY) or F9(SELL) Hot Keys? My ATM kicks in when I use my keyboard F4 or F5. Talking about a poor man's algo trading.... I think. Cant figure how to even search this type of functionality scripting for inter app connectivity.

Thanks in advance

Still wishing for this one under my tree
Happy Holidays
