MicroTrends NinjaTrader Portfolio Swing Trading Framework

NinjaTrader Development project thinking out of the box with NinjaTrader to get around all the intrinsic issues with NinjaTrader such as stopping and starting and portfolio swing trading, overnight, over the weekend. NinjaTrader 7 and NinjaTrader 8 both are designed for retail day trading overnight, if you stop a strategy,disconnect,restart, change orders and positions at the broker side NT loses context of what is going on and even does some crazy things like cancelling working orders leasing unprotected positions in the market – by design it is only for monitored single session usage- you cannot restart it even with the new NT8 features you are very limited to day trading overnight only. So what was required was true portfolio trading system with automated entry, automated exits,fault tolerance and recovery. The ability to stop and start the server/platform and to continue with the realtime context, to adjust and pickup the positions, orders and carry on. This is what is so fantastic about NT is that its extensible and so the brief was easily achieved by using the underlying NT API and coding direct to the broker via NT objects which are agnostic – thus avoiding the limitations of NT strategies and the need to create a side by side fix engine or use a 3rd party API. NinjaTrader has all the components with 1 platform, its all doable with the knowledge and skillset via NinjaTrader.  The NT platform/ server system can be auto restarted each week or even night or day after the maintenance window and picks up from where it left off for the next regular trading hours.  Orders and positions can be inspected and interacted with externally without issue.  The system will automatic detect which session it is and if it can route orders.

Risk Disclosure Futures, CFDs & forex trading contains substantial risk & 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 life style. Only risk capital should be used for trading & only those with sufficient risk capital should consider trading. Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results. Please read the full risk disclosure here.

Hypothetical performance results have many inherent limitations, some of which are described below. No representation is being made that any account will or is likely to achieve profits or losses similar to those shown; in fact, there are frequently sharp differences between hypothetical performance results & the actual results subsequently achieved by any particular trading program. One of the limitations of hypothetical performance results is that they are generally prepared with the benefit of hindsight. In addition, hypothetical trading does not involve financial risk, & no hypothetical trading record can completely account for the impact of financial risk of actual trading. for example, the ability to withstand losses or to adhere to a particular trading program in spite of trading losses are material points which can also adversely affect actual trading results. There are numerous other factors related to the markets in general or to the implementation of any specific trading program which cannot be fully accounted for in the preparation of hypothetical performance results & all which can adversely affect trading results.
