Default Broker API Integration by 3rd Parties

NinjaTrader LLC offers an external interface free of charge for simple real time data feed integration and ATM information access but it is not possible to integrate a complete broker interface using the external interface.
My suggestion is that NinjaTrader LLC can make a business by offering an API for full broker integration to 3rd parties. NinjaTrader could sell such an API for a suitable price and make money with it. So why does NinjaTrader LLC not realize that opportunity? 3rd parties can do a good job in supplying full broker interfaces and NinjaTrader LLC could also certify such interfaces for some money. Why not make a business out of it? NinjaTrader LLC cannot supply broker interfaces to all brokers world wide but 3rd parties may be interested in it. NinjaTrader LLC can profit from it even four times:
1) Earn money by offering the API
2) Earn money by certifying the full broker interfaces
3) Earn money by new customers of NinjaTrader LLC who want to use the 3rd party full broker interface
4) Get even more 3rd party educators, indicator and trading system developers supporting the NinjaTrader software

So does NinjaTrader LLC want to earn more money? If yes, than think about it.

Hello disputin,

I will forward your suggestion to my superiors and ask them if they can add this to the list of future considerations for the software.

Thank you for your feedback.

Futures, foreign currency and options trading contains substantial risk and is not for every investor. An investor could potentially lose all or more than the initial investment. Risk capital is money that can be lost without jeopardizing ones financial security or lifestyle. Only risk capital should be used for trading and only those with sufficient risk capital should consider trading. Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results. View Full Risk Disclosure.

CFTC Rules 4.41 - Hypothetical or Simulated performance results have certain limitations, unlike an actual performance record, simulated results do not represent actual trading. Also, since the trades have not been executed, the results may have under-or-over compensated for the impact, if any, of certain market factors, such as lack of liquidity. Simulated trading programs in general are also subject to the fact that they are designed with the benefit of hindsight. No representation is being made that any account will or is likely to achieve profit or losses similar to those shown.
