About the NinjaTrader Tutorials

This platform has the most advanced tools for you to take action in the financial markets, smart order routes, depth of market and exclave proprietary indicators.

With the possibility of trading with advanced trading strategies, Ninja Trader gives you the tool to enter orders with predetermined risk to reward parameters, i.e., predetermined risk (in pips or ticks) and predetermined take profit levels (also in pips or ticks). ATM Strategies are great because they allow you to think less about your trades thus not making the mistake of closing them too early or getting out while in red just to see price move in your favor afterwards.

It´s important to understand that it will take you a while to fully adapt your trading to a enw platform but once you get there you will see your ROI move up a couple of points.

Can I get proprietary indicators developed on Ninja Trader?

Yes you can. NinjaScript is NinjaTrader’s proprietary, C#-based programming language. Although this tutorial doesn´t cover programming, users can create indicators and trading strategies using NinjaScript. For those who are not prominent in programming, you can always visit the ninja trader support forum and post your requirements on the indicator development subforum for it to be developed or just simply browse through it to see if the indicator or strategy you required has already been developed

Does Ninja Trader have an app for iPhone and/or Android?

No, Ninja Trader does not have an app for mobile devices. All Ninja Trader licenses require for the platform to be running on a PC. There are third party applications that allow you to control orders, positions and strategies on your PC with Ninja Trader 7 running remotely via mobile phone. We don´t recommend using this addons; remember that this is a professional platform and professional traders don´t leave their positions unattended or send orders without all the information the platform gives you.
