NinjaTrader is the industry leader in trade management features!

Advanced Trade Management (ATM) is NinjaTrader’s signature order management technology that lets you pre-define personal trade management strategies including; multiple profit targets and stop loss orders, one-cancels-other (OCO) orders, auto-breakeven stops, trailing stops and much more. This feature can significantly enhance trade performance by automatically submitting all entry/exit orders within milliseconds! This feature alone tends to cover the cost of the platform while simultaneously lowering your stress level by eliminating the “deer in the headlights” feeling commonly associated with manually managing multiple exit orders in fast moving markets.

Frequently Asked Questions

 

Do I need to have MB Trading’s platform installed to run NinjaTrader?

Yes. Please refer to the connection guide tab for details.

 

Does NinjaTrader work for Stocks, Futures, Options and Forex?

Currently, NinjaTrader only supports Stocks, Futures and Forex with MB Trading customers.

 

If I’m having difficulty using the NinjaTrader software, does MB Trading support me?

No. MB Trading will help you set up and connect the NinjaTrader platform to your MB Trading account. For support related to actually using the NinjaTrader software, please contact NinjaTrader directly.

 

Can I connect my Demo account to NinjaTrader?

Yes, but certain data limitations might apply based on which assets class you are trading.

 

Does NinjaTrader support TTO order types?

Ninja Trader does not support the TTO order type. The stops and targets that are sent with a position are going to take away from your buying power, and as a result, clients might experience a situation where their entry order is filled, but the stop order is rejected. The only work around to this at this time is to submit the order using an ATM Strategy and using a volume based simulated stop order. These stop orders are going to be held locally on the computer NinjaTrader is running on and will not be submitted to the MB Trading server or the exchange until a specific number of contracts are traded through this price.

 

How do I roll an ES contract over to the new month?

  • From within the NinjaTrader Control Center window select the menu Tools > Instrument Manager
  • Highlight the contract you wish to rollover in the left side of the Instrument Manager window
  • Press the ">" button (the instrument will disappear from the list)
  • Press the "<" button and the instrument should re-appear with the front month expiration date
