NinjaTrader Customer Reviews

by SK-WA, 7/19/2019

Pros: Free Trial

Cons: Clunky...not dependable.

NOT USER FRIENDLY...always breaking down or not working as it is supposed to. Would gladly go anywhere else.

Pros: I do think the charts are user friendly

Cons: Backtesting is a sham and not a bit acurate.

I was a customer of Ninja Trader for 9 years and they have gotten progresivley worse as the years passed. The customer service has gotten terrible. It seems the only thing on there mind is to collect that 50.00 dollar fee that they have to change the rules to keep receiving it. ( If you are interested in the full experience my contact number is 903-879-0060 ) I would be happy to answer any questions about my experience with Ninja Trader.

Before I decided to start using Ninja exclusively, I tried thinkorswim, TradeStation, and MultiCharts. I found the brokerage costs of TradeStation to be too high. I also though the platform was convoluted. MultiCharts has a better design, but did not offer the indicators I wanted to use. Thinkorswim was probably the easiest overall. One thing thinkorswim needs to improve upon is their support for studies. I only found a small handful of strategies to choose from. Don't get me wrong, I think a trader can accomplish a lot with a SMA and a few directional tools. But I also like the ability to crossreference a more robust trading system, and that's where I think thinkorswim falls flat.

I find that NinjaTrader has a similar interface to MultiCharts, the wide support of indicators that TradeStation offers, and the simplicity of thinkorswim. Ninja still has a learning curve, as does any platform. I wish they supported more brokers, but now that they're in the business, I think that probably won't happen. I've had good experiences with Ninja Brokerage so far, but I'd like more options just in case. I like that I was able to get to try Ninja without any obligations at first. This made it easier to switch over. Anyway, I use Ninja as my primary platform now, as it supports a few systems I like to use. I am looking forward to version 8 but staying away for now until they get all the bugs ironed out.

Pros: Free, great platform

Cons: Sometimes slow

NinjaTrader fills a niche and it fills it well. Most importantly when compared to all of the other choices out there is that it is 100% free. They do have a permanent version as well as their own brokerage (with competitive fees), but the fact that anyone can download and be up and running within 10 minutes is impressive.

I do prefer TradingView, eSignal and TradeStation, but that's not taking much away from the fact that NinjaTrader is still a fantastic platform with plenty to offer. Users will appreciate how easy it is to connect to virtually any datafeed/broker, and the speed of the platform and navigating is top-notch. The only thing I found to be slow was when using the Market Analyzer to run scans, which slowed down my system a lot when using 100+ symbols.

All in all it's a solid charting platform that is more than sufficient for casual traders, though advanced users may find themselves wanting a bit more...

U.S. Brokerage Review Websites About Mirus Futures

"Ninja Trader with Zen-Fire data feed. The connection to the Mirus server is rock solid. Very rare to see even a slight hesitation in the data stream, and even more rare to experience a dropped connection. This is essential for day-trading any of the e-mini contracts, doubly so for ultra-fast contracts like the CL. With Ninja you have everything you need in one well designed integrated trading platform (no need for additional 3rd party app's.) Excellent real-time simulator built in. Get your workspace setup and forget it, this enables you to focus all of your energy and attention on the markets and your trading. Ninja is the only app I have running on my trading computer every day."
