What I see as a general pattern by the people on this site is to "offset" a poor review with a shill positive review. I'm more inclined to look then, at the percentage of good ratings versus the percentage of positive ratings. If you're looking for why, it's because the NT support people don't know how to backtest for 1 reason, and this thread proves the point: http://www.ninjatrader-support.com/vb/showthread.php?t=10802 Based on reason 1 they don't know how to convert backtests into real time systems. If you've never crashed NinjaTrader it's because you don't know how to program, or don't use custom automated strategies. I push it to its limit, and I'm pretty sure I found it in tick charts running on daily data simultaneously running on 1000 strategies at once. Again, the most recent NT review is obviously shill, and written by someone that may be biased for NT for whatever reason.
