    Is Trading Crypto Possible with NinjaTrader?

    Hello,
    I wanted to ask, what if any crypto exchanges can be connected to NinjaTrader to actively trade?
    Thank you.

    Hello Newtrader101,

    Thanks for your post.

    Charting and Sim trading is possible, however the platform is not yet ready to fully support crypto trading. Buying and selling partial quantities is one current limitation which would need a solution before further efforts can be invested towards live crypto currency trading.

    Please let us know if you have any additional questions.

      A a sugestion it would be nice that the lifetime license offered cryptocurrency trading at Binance or Primexbt, this last one can trade futures and forex. At the end of the day, all assets will be converted to some sort of blockchain.
      Cheers

        Hello voltation,

        There are currently limitations in the core application that prevent trading crypto currencies live. The ability to trade partial quantities is one factor.

        We have a feature request tracking interest behind fully supporting crypto currencies, and I have added votes for you VigMart and Newtrader101.

        The ticket ID is SFT-2334. This is an internal number, but for anyone else wishing to have their interest tracked, please let our support staff know that you would like a vote added for this request.

        Feature Request Disclaimer

        We receive many requests and cannot reasonably implement all requested features or changes. Interest is tracked internally and if enough interest is tracked, it would be weighed against how feasible it would be to make those changes to consider implementing.

        When new features are implemented, they will be listed in the Release Notes page of the Help Guide. The ID number will be different than the internal feature request tracking ID, but the description of the feature will let you know if that feature has been implemented.

        Release Notes -

        We look forward to assisting.

          Hello, I'd like to register interest in this feature request.

          Though I'm not trading crypto, it certainly looks to be growing as an asset class with institutional interest, and it would not be much fun to trade without proper software and systems.

          Thanks for registering my interest!

                      I vote for this SFT-2334. I'm using coinbase and would like to trade my account there.

                          I was reading about LedgerX, which offers crypto derivatives, and I looked at their website. It's not a great "trading platform," though. But they offer an API to get data.

                          Would NT8 be able to connect to the LedgerX API data? Just curious. Thank you!

                            Hello catinabag,

                            Connecting to another API is possible through a custom connection adapter, however, building custom connection adapters is only permitted for qualified vendors in a business relationship.

                            Having said that, there are further limitations being able to trade crypto currencies through NinjaTrader, for example, accessing a wallet and trading partial quantities.

                              Please add a vote for me.

                              In the other hand, I see coinbase under the list of possibles brokers in my Multi-Broker account. What's for? Can I connect NT 8 with my Coinbase account?

                              Finally, I had create a NinjaScript for using on crypto, but I can't use the loaded historical data in PlayBack mode to test this strategy... May be I am doing something wrong or it is not possible to run historical BTCUSD data on PlayBack?

                              Thanks.
