    I have a strategy that I developed using NinjaTrader. I would like to link it with BlackwoodPro (

    It is not one of their supported brokers. But there has to be a way to create an interface (api).
    I know some people who use TradeStation as their platform but have their trades routed to other brokers via some interface.

    How should I go about doing this?
  2. blackwood requires you to sign an NDA before you can get their API... that is why they're not supported by most platforms.

    you can fill out the NDA and send it to blackwood, and they'll provide you the API which you can use to build a ninja trader connector.

    here is the link:

    I've repeatedly asked NT to either expose their broker API (so that we can write our own), or build a general (FIX-type) protocol module that we could build to.

    The answer so far has been a very firm "no".
