    trading algorithum

    Hi Everyone

    I would like to know if it is possible to have my own algorithm written for use with NT8? I do not own it yet but I plan to purchase a multiple broker key in the future. If it is possible to have a algo written for NT8 what language would it need to be in? If it is not possible how would I create something to see supply and demand value areas?

    NinjaTrader uses C#


      Hi Jerry

      Thanks for the response.

      So the C# language is what I would need to have the algo written in order for it to work on NT8? I am a S&D trader and I want to have an algo built to automate my rule based trading plan. The metrics of what I need to have in the algo are complex to say the least. Can C# handle this? I am not a computer guy so any help in understanding what I want to do would be much appreciated




        Hello Power Broker,

        Thanks for your post.

        As member JerryWar advised Ninjatrader does use and is based on C# programming language and .Net4.5.

        If you are creating strategies you can write them directly in Ninjascript (which are methods and properties based on C# or can use the Stratgey builder which provide a nonprogramming interface. The Strategy builder then creates the C# code for you which is ultimately compiled in NinjaTrader for the fastest execution.

        If you are creating indicators, these would be created directly in Ninjascript.

        If you need someone to create these for you we can also point you to 3rd party coders.

          Hi Paul

          Thanks for the input here. What I need the strategy to do is very complex and I am not a coder by any stretch. LOL

          I can describe and give directions in plain English of what the metrics are and how I need the algo to work, is that something your coders would be able to help me out with? I have been using NT since I began trading and love it although have not been using it lately and do not own it yet. I plan to purchase NT8 when I am ready and would like to have an algo written right away once I own it. Meantime I can be writing up the metrics for the algo and what exactly I need it to do.

          Thanks for all the help thus far.
