NinjaTrader 8 has been out for a while. Now that the platform has proven its stability, many traders are making the switch from NinjaTrader 7. After installing NinjaTrader 8, you may be surprised to find a few differences. Firstly, the platform defaults to a dark color, straying from the grey look of version 7. In addition, the Control Center’s menus have been rearranged. Instead of managing data feeds and accounts via Tools > Account Connections, use Connections > Configure. Rolling over contracts is handled by Tools > Database Management with designated buttons. Rolling over is much easier now. Indicators are now imported via Tools > Import > NinjaScript Add-On. Like the previous version, the main features of the platform such as charts, SuperDOMs, Strategy Analyzer, etc. are in the New menu.
Navigating around menus, opening charts, and multitasking within the platform may seem a bit snappier, too. That’s because the NinjaTrader 8 uses multithreading to distribute various tasks to system processors. Market data is more precise. Data is delivered at sub-second intervals. Also, historical bid/ask data is is now stored with each last trade tick. If supported by your broker, the long-awaited MIT (Market-If-Touched) orders feature will place an order if price touches a specific value. In total, NinjaTrader claims there are over 500 enhancements.
