    Yeah, I'm trying to get things done with OpenQuant and I cannot get them to give me code examples!! The only thing they have going is their event driven structure and with the Ninja move towards more event driven methods and the coding examples which make your documentation 5 on a 5 scale, you are going to leave OpenQuant and all of them in the dust for the non-professional programming folks, which has to be most of us....
  4. John, Does NinjaTrader offer customizable Hotkeys for order entry functions?

    Thanks in advance.

    Hot-keys are on our list for future enhancements but have not been assigned to any specific release at this time. Thank you - John

    I can't pull up the release notes. Is auto-scaling finally toggleable?

    I find Ninja to be an excellent product. I have been using 6.5 since beta 4 and the new features are extremely good.

    As far as ease of use multiple workspaces are very helpful.

    As far as coding goes, 2 new extremely important events were introduced: OnMarketData and OnMarketDepth.

    These events allow us to analyze Time&Sale and Market Depth in real time. OnMarketData capture any change on level 1 on bid/ask and any trade. OnMarketDepth captures any change on any bid/ask levels. These events are of tremendous value for those interested in such analysis, which I find of huge importance to time entries and exits. If interest search for ACV in title to read some threads on this subject.

    There are of course many more various new features.

  8. Thank you REdDuke, this is what exactly I was looking for and couldn't find and was about to give up on NT!

    Surprisingly the OnMarketData and OnMarketDepth are not in the functions list!

    They are events, so that is probably why. If you go to help and type their names, you will see sample code on how to use it.

    Are there any indicators posted on Ninjas Site based on this new feature?
