Default NinjaTrader instances on two PCs

I have two PCs and I want to run a licensed (payed) instance of NinjaTrader connected to my broker on one of the PCs. On the second PC I want to run a free instance of NinjaTrader to run strategy optimization on historical data.
Is it possible from the legal and technical point of view? Both PCs are connected to the same internet connection.

Hello gofortips,

Thank you for your post.

It is possible to use two different NinjaTrader license keys on two different PCs at once. And you are free to use the Free Simulation License Key at anytime.

You will need to discuss with your broker/data feed provider if it is possible to connect to their datafeed from two PCs at one time, as NinjaTrader does not have access to account sensitive information.

Please let me know if I may be of further assistance.

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.

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.
