PT multistation from PFSoft

 

I've been using this multi-asset platform. It can trade on a range of markets: Forex, Futures, CFDs, Options and Stocks.

 

It's based on the front-end of the same company's well-established ProTrader brokerage platform.

 

The basic version is free, and some powerful stuff can be added by subscribing.

I'm a fan of Ninjatrader. If you've seen my trade reports you'll notice those are Ninja screen shots. I actually don't use the charting on the application but use all the trade management tools and connection into my IB account. I know the charting is good, I just got used to something else but use Ninja everyday regardless.

 

I hadn't heard of the Kinetick data -- for me the whole data question with NinjaTrader is sometimes confusing since it is reliant on other datafeeds, your broker, etc... and there is so much variance on whether your datafeed has historicals, is tick based, etc... I will check out Kinetick -- anyone have anything to say about it in real-time use?

I'm sure I will be corrected if I am wrong but I believe it is a re-branded version of IQFeed. I guess all the comments about that are pertinent provided DTN are managing the whole thing on the same ticker plant and infrastructure.

 

I too quite like Ninja though the charting is OK but weak for some applications. They missed a great opportunity to re-architect some of the core components with V7.0. The obvious one being the database it's sad people still need external user supported databases (Gomi) the other thing that is needed is to be able to build charts tick by tick from historic data. To be fair several other charting packages suffer from these issues, the smart developers realise the limitations imposed by these archaic architectures.

I'm definitely with you on building charts with historic tick data.

 

Always frustrating when you either can't get enough historical data, or they (meaning any vendor not Ninja specific) make a big deal about having all this long history on daily charts or 5 minute charts when in reality many/most really active daytraders are using tick bars, range bars, etc... we need historical going way back on those not just daily or time intervals.

Kinetick is a market data service owned by NinjaTrader. Telvent DTN is in fact the technology provider. Integration wise, NinjaTrader does not use their API but writes directly to the Telvent servers thus the interface is more efficient and direct than any 3rd party tool that connects into the IQFeed API. Although Kinetick is new, the technology behind it is battle tested.

 

Price wise its also much less expensive than other options such as eSignal.

Question -- so what would someone be looking at let's say monthly to have Ninjatrader + data? Let's assume without the monthly exchange fees because obviously those are basically the same for everyone regardless and it depends on what someone picks (ICE, CME, CBOT, etc...)

As most already know, the NinjaTrader platform is free for everything except for live trades through your broker. Assuming that you would only want to use NinjaTrader for charting, analysis and/or custom indicator/system development...You would need to tie it to a market data source. Your options here are a cheap as "free" if you have a brokerage account that we support (TD Ameritrade, MB Trading, Interactive Brokers for example all provide data that you can drive into NinjaTrader free of charge) or if you only require EOD data, Kinetick providers that free of charge or you can connect to Yahoo or Google Finance (NT7).

 

If you require intraday data...

 

- Kinetick (Kinetick - Streaming real time quotes and historical market data) base fee is $50 per month which includes 100 real time symbols

- eSignal or IQFeed is a lot more expensive than that

At what point will NT7 ever be able to access from DTN/Kinetic the 30 days of BID/ASK historical data provided like TradeVec, Investor RT, or MarketDelta.com?

 

This is a HUGE stumbling block for Ninjatrader at this time........not really even worth messing around with BID/ASK data from DTN/Kinetic if I can't easily pull up 30 days of historical lookback imo. BTW, MultiCharts is going to start looking at building up a Cumulative Delta capability....we will see how they do with this opportunity.

Stockcharts.com & Bigcharts.com are old reliable sources when you need to cross check something (like your CFD provider stuffing up a stock split). Also some nice index & market data there, A/D lines, Dollar indexes etc.

 

Also metaquotes.net for a non broker tied metatrader to play with.

    • Date : 24th February 2020 Events to Look Out For Next Week 24th February 2020.The economic data has been and will continue to be overshadowed by the Covid-19 outbreak. The week ahead starts light, with the German Business Sentiment Index and Chinese Retail Sales on Monday. Leading indicators dominate the releases, but the event of the week is the US GDP and Consumer Confidence, which should shed light on whether the epidemic is visible in the data globally.Monday – 24 February 2020 Japan – Emperor’s Birthday Retail Sales (CNY, GMT N/A) – China’s retail trade growth stood at 8 percent year-on-year in December 2019. However a strong decline is expected for January, following the recent releases indicating that new car sales plunged 92% in China in February and airline traffic is expected to post the first drop since 2011 amid heavy virus containment measures in China. German IFO (EUR, GMT 09:00) – The German Business Sentiment Index released by the CESifo Group is closely watched as an early indicator of current conditions and business expectations in Germany. February’s numbers are expected to incline. Tuesday – 25 February 2020 Leading Economic Index (JPY, GMT 05:00) – The index is expected to show no change in the outlook of the Japanese economy and stand at 91.6. Gross Domestic Product (EUR, GMT 07:00) – German GDP is expected to have fallen by 0.3% on an annualized rate in the last quarter of the year, compared to 1.0% growth in Q3. Conference Board Consumer Confidence (USD, GMT 15:00) – Consumer Confidence is expected to have increased to 132.4 compared to 131.6 in the previous month. Wednesday – 26 February 2020 New Home Sales (USD, GMT 15:00) – The housing recovery should extend into 2020, assuming that mortgage rates remain low and Fed policy remains accommodative. The January new home sales should post a 2.3% climb to a 710k pace, after a dip to a 694k rate in December, versus a 12-year high of 730k in September. Trade Balance (NZD, GMT 21:45) – The Trade Balance measures the difference in value between imported and exported goods and services over the reported period. It will be interesting to see whether the New Zealand trade balance already posts an impact from the epidemic. Thursday – 27 February 2020 Gross Domestic Product (USD, GMT 13:30) – US preliminary GDP growth for Q4 is expected to trim to 2.0% from 2.1%. Durable Goods (USD, GMT 13:30) – Durable goods orders are expected to fall -1.5% in January with a -4.7% drop in transportation orders. Defense orders should fall by -29%, following the 101.4% December surge. Boeing orders declined to zero planes, following a dismal 3 planes in January. Tokyo Core CPI and Unemployment Rate (JPY, GMT 23:30) – Tokyo CPI is usually a good proxy for the Japanese economy’s overall inflation rate. In February, the CPI ex Food is expected to have stood at 0.9% y/y. The unemployment rate is expected to have climbed to 2.3% from 2.2% in December. Retail Sales (JPY, GMT 23:50) – Following a precipitous 3-month dive in October -December, due to a prolonged hit to exports from soft global demand and a slide in consumer spending following a nationwide tax hike, January’s Retail Sales are expected to drop to -1.1% on a y/y basis. Friday – 28 February 2020 Unemployment Rate (EUR, GMT 08:55) – The German unemployment rate is expected to have remained at 5% in February. Harmonized Index of Consumer Prices (EUR, GMT 13:00) – The German HICP inflation could rise to 0.3% m/m for February from the drop seen at -0.6% m/m last month. Gross Domestic Product (CAD, GMT 13:30) – A sharp slowing in Canada’s real GDP growth rate to 1.2% (q/q, saar) is expected in Q4 following the 1.3% Q3 growth. This should not add to the backing for a rate cut for the Bank of Canada. Personal Income (USD, GMT 13:30) – A 0.3% rise in personal income in January is anticipated after a 0.2% increase in December, alongside a 0.2% rise in consumption that follows a 0.3% December gain.

    • Bitcoin (BTC) Consolidates As Bears And Bulls Tussle Above $9,400 Support Key Resistance Zones: $10,000, $11,000, $12,000 Key Support Zones: $7, 000, $6, 000, $5,000 BTC/USD Long-term Trend: Ranging Bitcoin has failed to break above $10,400 overhead resistance. The bulls made two unsuccessful attempts at the resistance. In the recent one, the bears took the price to a low of $9,290 and then pulled back above $9,400. In the interim, the price is fluctuating above $9,400 and approaching the high of $9,800. As the bulls have failed to push above the overhead resistance, the pair may commence a range movement. Nonetheless, it is anticipated that if the bears break below the $9,400 support, selling pressure may resume. Meanwhile, BTC may continue the range-bound movement. BTC/USD – Daily Chart Daily Chart Indicators Reading: After the downward move of Bitcoin, the Relative Strength Index has also fallen to level 52. This simply means the coin is above the centerline 50. In other words, BTC is in an uptrend and it is likely to rise. Price broke the support line of the ascending channel. The uptrend will be in proper perspective only when the bulls break into the ascending channel. BTC/USD Medium-term Trend: Bearish On the 4- hour chart, Bitcoin now trades between $9,400 and $10,200 after the first breakdown at the $10,400 overhead resistance. The bulls tested the resistance at $10,200 twice , before the downward move. The large bearish candlesticks tested a low of $9,290. However, the small body candlesticks that follow are called indecisive candlesticks. BTC/USD – 4 Hour Chart 4-hour Chart Indicators Reading Presently, BTC is trading above a 25% range of the daily stochastic. That is the coin is in the bullish trend zone. The 21-day SMA and the 50-day SMA are sloping horizontally indicating a sideways trend. General Outlook for Bitcoin (BTC) From every indication, if the bulls fail to push above the overhead resistance, the price action in October and November will repeat itself. For the past three days, BTC is still fluctuating above $9,400. Instrument: BTC/USD Order: Sell Entry price: $9,700 Stop: $9,900 Target: $8,400 Note: Learn2Trade.com is not a financial advisor.
