  • Does NT8 support GDAX? You would sell a ton of licenses if it did!

    Hi NinjaTrader,

    Does NT8 support GDAX? Do you have plans to support it?

    It would be an incredibly strong selling point for so many traders if it did, and I think that you would sell a ton of lifetime licenses.

    I haven't bought a lifetime license yet, but if you fully supported trading on GDAX, including live and historical market data for back-testing, I would almost certainly buy a lifetime license.

    One of your web based competitors recently announced support for GDAX, and just today another of your competitors which offers a more expensive platform announced support for GDAX by March, but I love NinjaTrader 8 and want to use your product to back-test and live trade cryptocurrencies on GDAX!

    Your platform is awesome and GDAX traders would go absolutely nuts if you supported GDAX. You wouldn't even need to pay much for marketing... milllions of crypto traders would find out about it within a month of your announcement by media mentions and social sharing alone!

    Thank you very much for your consideration!

    Hello NinjaTrader_PatrickH,

    Thank you for looking into this and finding the definitive answer.

    As you might imagine, this is really disappointing news for someone who is excited and determined to use NinjaTrader 8's excellent back-testing capabilities to back-test NinjaScript strategies on intraday bitcoin data.

    If your team doesn't find a workaround for this issue on Coinbase's end, such as perhaps providing that same data through Kinetick but allowing multiple years of intraday data to be downloaded without throttling issues, then NinjaTrader will lose out on the opportunity to delight the huge total addressable market of crypto traders that don't use NinjaTrader 8 today, but who would have their heads turned by such a feature, especially if it were free.

    This feature would attract a huge number of crypto traders to your platform, and a chunk of them will convert to paying customers.

    Thank you for your time and consideration,

    EquityTrader

    Hello EquityTrader,

    Thank you for your patience.

    The message "rate limit exceeded" occurs when requests made from an IP address through the Coinbase API exceed a certain limit. We do not have a specific number for the limit at this time. However, the message also occurs when the server for the data itself is also overloaded.

    At this time there is no complete solution to avoid this behavior.

    Please let me know if you have any questions.

    Thank you, EquityTrader.

    There was a change made but it did not appear to change the behavior in all cases.

    I am working with our QA team to provide further details here on this thread.

    Hi NinjaTrader_PatrickH,

    I downloaded NinjaTrader 8 version 8.0.15.1 64-bit and this problem still exists.

    This time, I was able to run the back-test over 14 calendar days successfully, but an attempt to back-test 15-minute bars of BTCUSD over only approximately 44 calendar days (4/20/2018 to 6/3/2018) returns the following error:

    Error on requesting bars series: 'Rate Limit exceeded'

    I see that the release notes don't mention this as a fix, but since you posted that this issue was expected to be resolved in release 15 (see our earlier conversation in this thread), I thought that I should respond to this thread to make sure that this problem hasn't been forgotten about.

    Thanks for taking a look at this. I am really looking forward to back-testing my NinjaTrader 8 strategies on intraday BTCUSD data, and I am certain that there are a massive number of traders all over the world that would love to do the same thing in NinjaTrader.

    Hello jheo0270,

    Thank you for your post.

    I have responded to your email on June 11th and here earlier today. This is my response:

    Thank you for sending in the files.

    Please go to the NinjaTrader Control Center > Tools > Instruments > search for BTCUSD. Do you see it listed as 'Type' 'Forex' and 'Type' 'CryptoCurrency'?

    I look forward to your response.

    Hello jheo0270,

    Thank you for sending in the files. I will review and follow up with you on your email.

    The GDAX adapter is only available through NinjaTrader 8.

    Thanks Patrick. Just sent the email.

    In addition, is it possible to get this connection through Ninjatrader 7 as well? I have too many complex indicators that the original creators do not want to convert to Ninja 8 as it will take them way too long to do so.

    Hello jheo0270,

    Thank you for your post and welcome to the NinjaTrader Support Forum!

    Please send me your log and trace files so I may look into this matter further.

    You can do this by going to the Control Center-> Help-> Mail to Platform Support.

    Ensuring 'Log and Trace Files' is checked will include these files. This is checked by default.
