    I'm with Oanda now and like it. I purchased Motive Wave and have never looked back. Amazing software.

    Time to wake up Ninja Trader.
    Yes, Motive wave is a good platform at very good price.

    Hi,

    Since FXCM was banned running business in US, trading forex with them is no longer an option. With that being said, what brokers do ninjatrader support? I realized that Ninjatrader used to support Gain Capital Forex.com broker? However, I can't find it on https://ninjatraderecosystem.com/Brokers. Does it mean that Ninjatrader no longer support Gain Capital Forex.com on NT platform?
    They are a nightmare, use a your own risk. When I heard the news, I immediately took my funds out of FXCM.. Hopefully we can get oanda soon

    Any update?

    Forex.com is basically a criminal bunch. When a well-known trader posts a YouTube video about his experience with them. I will be sure to post it or let the folks at ninja trader know about it. I can't believe you are basically forcing any clients to use them. It's a sad state of affairs.

    Yeah it's all right. Well don't have to purchase motivewave, right away as they offer a 30 day trial

    By then hopefully NT will have things set up for everyone soon…

    Trying to figure out best option for forex trading in my situation.

    * I am based in the U.S. and a non-professional part time forex-only trader trying to learn to trade well. I already have a lifteime NT license that I got to trade with Interactive Brokers before they stopped supporting margin in forex. I switched to using FXCM with their platform, but now find myself transferred to forex.com/GAIN capital.

    * Good data and good analysis of the data is essential to the approach I am learning for trading. However the forex.com monthly data is broken. It is full of ridiculous gaps between months that one can instantly tell is wrong. It makes me leery about the correctness of the data they provide for time-frames that I can't instantly tell is wrong.

    * I wish to keep my monthly costs down. NT is a good platform certainly, but I don't know what broker and data is my best option with it. I am not optimistic about data coming from forex.com. And I am not thrilled at the price of data from kinetick. It seems there are no great options. I might as well open a small not forex account with tradestation and pay the 100 dollars a month for a non-active user of their brokerage.

    If anyone knows some good options, please share them. Thank you.

    Hello,
    Yes, Forex.com/Gain Capital is not where you want to be.. There numerous reasons why besides data feed. But the main reason why is they have a dealing desk. Meaning they take the other side of the trade and want you to lose. Whereas other brokers have non-dealing desks like Oanda The best US Forex broker is Oanda. An affordable chart trading software platform is Motivewave trader for $295 and they support Oanda.. They also offer a free trial.

    Just looking at NT website http://ninjatrader.com/FXCM_FAQ

    They have removed the previous sentence
    We are also currently working on finalizing an additional brokerage option for NinjaTrader users and expect more details to be available the week of February 20th.

    Now it reads

    We have partnerships with both GAIN Capital/FOREX.com (NinjaTrader 7 and coming soon for NinjaTrader 8) and Interactive Brokers (non-US) to support forex traders.

    – –

    If there is no news that is going to be quite disappointing...Response below

    New connection technologies require extensive internal development and testing before we can release them for use to our clients. Support for Oanda is currently under development however I have no timeline on when this will be completed.

Only downside is you have to go with MT4 (however there are some rumors that they might be able to offer NT support but it is only speculation at this point).
    Yes, I did the same. Wired by money out, went to Oanda. Hoping for in NT support. Otherwise maybe switch to MultiCharts or MotiveWave..
