Default Supported Operating Systems

Where can I find a complete list of supported Operating Systems? Otherwise, will NT8 only run on Windows? Thanks

Hello aaadetos,
Thanks for your post.

You can find the supported Operating Systems listed on the 'minimum system requirements' page of the help guide.


NinjaTrader is designed for Windows, but we have many clients who have been able to successfully run NinjaTrader on OSX with a VM.

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.

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.
