I hope that the future NinjaTrader could do the following.

1. View Chart of the instrument by right mouse click on the instrument in Market Analyzer.

2. Able to select a list of instrument and drag and drop to the Instrument List in the Instrument Manager, rather than clicking on every instrument.

3. Able to have a stock list import formatted to give extra details such as the stock code, description, currency, exchange, instrument list so that it is easier for importing and detailing, etc.

4. Able to pull from Yahoo Finance, the stock name and display it on the stock chart or Market Analyzer or Instrument List when necessary.

5. A means to have cross-hair mouse cursor by either left mouse click or middle mouse click, then toggle the same button to off the cross-hair. This can help to do fast analysis of the instrument on the chart.

6. Able to select drawing objects and hide it or allow the visibility of the object in selected timeframe.

7. Able to add more fibonacci level for display.

8. Allow intraday charting using Yahoo! or Google data feed for US stocks.

For your consideration, please.

Agree with no.2 totally - should be able to select a group of stocks and add rather than one by one - this interface looks archaic to say the least!

Similarly with no.3

Also the ability of the instrument manager picking up stock directl from a .xml file and that we can share .xml files between users.....

Of course you are going to say that this is being addressed in NT7 which is months away?

Hello sgfxtrader and mefTrader,

You can windowlink the Market Analyzer to a chart. Once you left click an instrument in the Market Analyzer, the chart will change to this instrument. More information can be found at the link below.

Ctrl + Q will change your cursor to a Cross Hair.

You could set the color of the drawing object to transparent. Double click the drawing object to open up its Properties menu and change the color accordingly.

Double clicking a Fibonacci darwing tool will open up its Properties menu as well to add additional levels.

As per the other suggestions, I will forward them to our development team 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.

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.
