    cTrader connectivity (anyone got it working?)

    More a thread for the community, I think...

    I've been interested in the cTrader connectivity since it became available. Despite spending quite a few hours of it at that time, I could never get it to work. There were a couple of issues as I recall. Not many CFD brokers offer 'netting' accounts, which was a requirement (I guess as NT can't cope with hedging), and though I did manage to get a demo account or 2 with (supposedly) netting, I could never get it to work with NT. It would fail or do nothing as I recall after the pop up web page auth. I posted about it at the time. I know others were having the same issues, but no resolution came to light. That was maybe a year ago.

    The connection has come to light again as a possible solution to an issue I have, so...

    My question for any NT8 users who might have tried this too. Did you ever get it to work? If so, would you mind sharing a hint at which broker (If this is not acceptable, maybe DM me the name - Don't want to upset ninja mentioning any other broker names here).

    Though, NT support staff, it would be perhaps acceptable for you to list any brokers/accounts you know are compatible? (again, if not posted here, privately) Because, I know of none, and I tried all the popular ones I know of/available to me.

    Thanks.

    The question of "how can I get a netting account" can be answered by cTrader - that will be required for the cTrader connection to work within NinjaTrader. The connection guide provides more detail and disclaimer information about the connection:I am able to successfully connect to a cTrader account that meets all the necessary requirements, so in theory, it's working as expected as long as the account you're connecting to meets the criteria.

    If you're curious about other supported forex/CFD brokers, please contact my colleagues on the Platform Sales Team directly at platformsales[AT]ninjatrader[DOT]com.

      Well, for the benefit of others, I carried out the same steps as I had when this first was released, but seemingly not working, and now, it works! First time in fact. At least, I got connected, got data/instruments, etc. Actually, it seems to work rather well. I guess time and several iterations of NT8 have 'fixed' whatever plagued me last time.

      Trying to figure out how to enter lot sizes is a bit odd, as Ninja only accepts 1, 2, etc., whilst index and forex can traditionally use 0.01, 0.1, etc. I'm told for Forex you can use 1,000 for 0.01, 10,000 for 0.1 and , 100,000 = 1! I realise this equates to lot size, but.. Not sure about fractional sizes on indexes yet. I will test some trades next week and see how it goes. If this works well I would have to say it's a great addition to the platform.
