NinjaTrader Licensing – NinjaTrader Machine ID Info

buy an automated trading ninjatrader strategy with proven Performance statistical evidence

MicroTrends is not an educator or trading room or trading group –  we do not provide stats, claims or trading advice – but we do provide popular and proprietary tools for traders to use and support on their features.

And we have varied reports of success and varied reports of people who on their quest take a very long time or some fall by the way side and struggle with the tech or their patience or psychology- so really you might find a MT product doesn’t suit you or it may well be exactly what you need.

The strategy you buy from MicroTrends with proven statistical evidence is the strategy you have worked hard to determine if you can trade it with your capital, style and availability and have the evidence first hand through running tests – then when you have completed your unlimited time trial for backtesting, optimisation and sim trading, you are ready to live trade – then you lease or buy it after its live trading trial period is up… so you buy the strategy that has no false claims and is 100% suited to your criteria.

we are 100% unique in the NinjaTrader community as we do not lie, push software, use shills and adopt a “BS” unethical marketing strategy to take advantage of peoples dreams and desires to make money trading -we are also traders and use our software and consult for commercial funds and have been at this game for a long time.

Our model understands the reality of trading and condones and enforces that is best left up to the trader to test and assess and find out how to use strategies to suit them and make them work with assistance on the technical usage – if a trader believes anything it must be through direct experimentation over a substantial period of time and  in depth effort- or they will join the rest of the perhaps 99% who fail at mechanical trading.

Be warned….It is many times harder and longer to use a strategy – compared to discretionary trading and should not be a short cut for people who cannot manually trader looking for a solution that means that they don’t have to do any hard work and want to fulfill some dream of easy wealth and a personal pension that can be bought all for $99 per month,,, The reality is very different.

It is true if you go through the effort and time of the discovery and system selection phase and setup a plan and set of viable strategies – that you will eventually find trading mechanically more efficient and you will be able to trade more markets in a diversified manner – which would take a team of skilled traders……and you can do this with minimal operational costs and maintenance…however be warned this is a journey that even less will succeed at and calls on a multitude of disciplines, time and capital.

Depending on your size 
Ideally For a Fully Auto commercial style operation: You need ideally $100K to $5M trading capital – and from that $1K to $10K for historical data, 3 servers – 1 for test (but up to 10 for parrallel testing), 1 real-time sim pre-production paper trading, 1 live trader server. Allow 1 to 3 months to backtest in parallel assess on realtime sim 3months to 9 months – you need to understand every trade for say 2000 to 3000days of trading  pre GFC  200 to 2007 and Post GFC March 2009 onwards and leave out of sample data… understand the drawdown and 3 to 4 times of that for realtime is your capital for expected drawdown…  understand the worst scenario and best and typical – how range and market conditions affect… understand when you should launch and when not to…

Diversify your systems/ parametersets/dataseries and instruments… so and you should be trading perhaps 3 inversely related robots on 5 to 15 uncorrelated markets which you have selected based on profit opportunity and participation not because you are for example French and like the French stock market due to some patriotic ideal instead of evidence that it is a good market to trade with  range/volume/liquidity… LTF versus HTF – you should have a basket of low frequency trading robots – and if you really need to some high frequency trading add later-. For Swing trading or commercials beware of limitations of NinjaTrader 7 – you might need NT + an API trade manager to manage orders and positions after signals are made in NT7 and has been later stopped or disconnected.  NT7 will not allow 100% continuous operation- understand what happens when you stop and restart NT7 – you may have to manually guide/manage orders -before you can restart a strategy again for swing traders this is a limitation of the technology we hope will be fixed in NT8  -where we have asked NT to allow a strategy to start and warn, rebind, adopt or allow the developer/strategy to deal with open positions and working orders on the chosen account and instrument.

– with diversified settings and uncorrelated markets to even stand a chance of success….. You should also be an expert in collating data and reports and analysis or learn those skills -most folks cannot do that part and simply tasks such as producing and reading reports and feeding analysis back into the system set- can be a simple basic requirement and hurdle…failing point…

Trading is not all about clicking the mouse and making orders – or slapping a robot on an instrument after viewing a report…  done correctly it is a in depth intensive systematic process.  We are not going to give away too many secrets to our competitors who copy and work by plagiarism –  having the software is a small part of the job, the structured project management and storage of data and presentation of test results is another discipline..  the better you are with data and testing, the more time you give to sim realtime pre-production the better your results.

Small account realtime Interactive Trading

There are easier less intensive ways to try – if you are a small account trader say 10k to 50K – Realtime Interactive trading – 1 robot 1 trader 1 market 
become an expert and guide it in realtime… on 1 market – you need to be an expert on that market…  So you could for instance – get a strategy and run a visual backtest – put it on a chart in realtime/sim and watch it and guide it…to a plan… using the realtime NinjaBuddy controls, and track your results and rules over a few weeks to a few months, if you are already a good trader looking for technology to make life easier this could be a good way to try it.
Such as this approach:

Regardless of route and budget: 
You are the driver and must learn how to drive/test and race to win 
Only you will be able to decide what works for your with statistical evidence you find with direct experience 
You should test and assess in realtime sim for many weeks and become an expert in that instrument and strategy – or even better many months before risking anything 


Yes you can buy winning strategies from MicroTrends but you are the one to test and select and configure them for your chosen markets… no we wont give trading advice –  you are the one to find the best settings  – we supply the tech for you to drive…with our support on technical features.

As detailed above proving strategies takes time – for this reason the MTNTF7 framework and MTDS is free for you to use any strategy on sim/demo and should you reach that stage.

Warning about Cost, Quality and Methodology

Dear Traders: MicroTrends is not the cheapest certified NinjaTrader Consultant and if you are after a 5 minute job or want the cheapest quote please don’t waste your time or our time – we provide commercial grade & work to a lightweight Institutional process to ensure what we do deliever is in the minimum time, with the leasst cost and the maximum quality & robustness. We are not a quoting service. The majority of “certified” developers on the NinjaTrader website probably learnt to code with NinjaTrader as a hobby in their bedroom/office – and some are talented within a capacity – however some not so and sadly we have to fix their code so we know this as a fact. They glady will serve you for a cut price rate & for simple tasks are probably ok to use…But if you are serious…would you use a hobbyist amateur who charges to perform brain surgery on your trading systems or would you rather pay a professional with a 20 year career of commercial institutional programming?

Do not skimp & cut cost…there are no short cuts… Write it correctly the first time and avoid code re-writes and additional money later to put it right or worse still errors that might leave you with less money in your trading account than you started with? You get what you pay for – it is a false economy to get the cheapest quote – you will waste time & money not getting a professional to do it… So don’t be tight.. or it will cost you more. If you cannot afford a pro you are at risk of the project costing you much more – you should not be trading or considering a trading project until you are fully ready to invest the correct time & budget to obtain your return on the investment. Use a proper professional and pay the correct market price – but also there is no need to pay the most expensive either

Save cost, time using a Automated Trading Technology to power your strategy

Chosing the cheapest developer to write an automated trading strategy is suicide or a false economy as you will need it coded properly later if you have funds left and not blown up your account in a live trading accident – due to overfills unguarded positions or the strategy erroring as is usually expected with the default NinjaTrader strategy managed approach – read here for details.

You can use a professional automated trading system specialist to write your code and avoide problems but would pay a lot of money for the time it takes to write one from scratch – so the answer is then to use off the shelf ready to use trading system which you simply plugin in your trade system logic – such as theMicroTrends Double Shot Strategy Foundation (MTDS), 100% free for simulator use, includes development support and a software development kit with sample strategies.

So when using such a technology as the MTDS your project simply requires the logic for Trade Entry, Trade Filter and Trade Exits – the trade setup signal rules and trigger.  All of the entry order types, trade management & realtime trading interface to allow control & configuration during live trading are supplied off the shelf & save the cost & time & the time and cost of testing/fixing of a new technology in live trading.

Learn more about the MTDS

MTDS only requires a license if you want to live trade with it – its is 100% free for sim trading – so you dont even need to buy it for your project it is free for development – usually for a development project you can elect to buy the MTDS at a development project rate discount of 10% to 25% off!

Testimonials – Hear it from a Automated Trading Professional

One key feature of the BWT Precision Autotrader is that it is Professionally Coded 100% in NT unmanaged mode. The official NinjaTrader Documentation states:” The Unmanaged approach is reserved for VERY EXPERIENCED programmers. ….In place of the convenience layer that the Managed approach offered, the Unmanaged approach instead offers ultimate flexibility in terms of order submission and management…..

Writing code in unmanaged mode requires extra time and effort and requires a significantly higher coding skill set, that most NinjaScript Certified Developers simply do not have… I say this with complete confidence because at one time or another over the last 8 years, I have personally worked with almost all of them!

As a trader I was seeking the absolute highest quality for BWT software – not one programmer I worked with could deliver a strategy that did not have overfills, errors and annoying bugs… that was until 2014 when BWT partnered with Tom Leeson  at MicroTrends…  the ONLY NinjaScript developer I’ve ever known that really “get’s it” and likely THE most experienced trading system programmer in the NinjaTrader niche,  having worked for professional prop shops and hedge funds in London’s Financial District for many years.  That is why the BWT Automated Trading System will work in real money live environment, fast markets etc. with No Overfills,  no Order Entry or Exit Errors, True Limit and Stop entry  or exit, no time out system crashes  …

Long Time BWT Client Testimonial

T. A. from Virginia, USA

As you know I’ve been using been using the autotrader for quite a while now.  Your persistence to perfection has finally materialized.  Your latest version of BWT AutoTrader along with suite of BWT Indicators are superb and unmatched in the industry.  The reason I say this is because of all the years I known you, eight to ten odd years, this is the best system and indicators I have seen.  Otherwise I would not be writing this.  Given I am a Software Developer myself and been in the IT industry for over 20 years and work for a prestigious Government agency, this is the first testimonial I have put out because you truly deserve it.  Your latest BWT AutoTrader is so powerful yet it gives each trader flexibility to adjust to their own trading style or market conditions  The system is so precise in entries, exits and money management, it’s unreal… After all those years, I can finally say I am now trading with confidence.  THANKS to YOU and your system.

MT NinjaTrader Framework 7 (MTNTF7) – consists of many indicators, signals indicators and strategies with the ability to create, pick and mix your own trading system using generic signals trading technology – Written using default NinjaTrader managed order mode – means strategies can halt on order overfills 
    2. MT Double Shot Strategy Foundation (MTDS) – an algorithmic trading framework with SDK open source samples you can trade with or edit… The trade engine which powers this is more robust that the MTNTF7 as it is written in unmanaged mode – does not halt on overfills – but not as much feature or power as MTNTF7

Both of the above are sophisticated and complex products suitable for confident intermediate to advanced users who are keen on self learning and experimentation – both come with a trade manager for discretionary or real time interaction of strategies. All MicroTrends strategies are 100% free for sim,demo, backtest and development – only requiring a license for live trading or if you require more in depth and priority support. Support for free users is mostly self assisted from the existing forum and videos – but we supply info where required… paid for version support includes settings assistance and even videos/templates to assist. There is no mentoring trading advice only support on features… so the license model is free for sim to allow you the time to learn…

Day Trading, Swing Trading Automated systems

      1. Bluewave Trading – you get 1 to 1 mentoring and support directly with Randy Sarrow the designer and trader – this robot and trading technology solution is the most sophisticated technology available for NinjaTrader – and is a Stocks and Commodities Awarded product. – This will be migrated from NT7 to NT8. 1 to 1 support and private direct technical support and mentoring combined with features makes this the best option for AutoTrading and mixed discretionary -automatic trade management- and also remarkably the best value
      2. Woodies Collection – includes trading room for discretionary trading and some robots – but they lack the experience and focus of the above package – their strength is really discretionary trading – robots are used to provide stats and assistance with live discretionary trading for example – This will be migrated from NT7 to NT8 – so the support model is 1 to 1 and instructor group trading room led – is the best option for learning discretionary trading and benefits from trade manager and semi/fully automated models that can assist your trading – most expensive.
      3. Trade Foxx – is really a product that is built on top of the MTDS – with some extra compiled strategies – maybe migrated to NT8 so we recommend the MTDS product instead or #1 the mentoring provided by TradeFoxx so go for this instead of MTDS if you want 1 to 1 support with someone from TradeFoxx

        2. If you want to trade as part of a trading room group for discretionary and semi/fully automated trading – then Woodies might be your place to try – but emphasis in the trading group is on discretionary techniques.
        3. If you are really self led and of a more advanced trading level and NinjaTrader user – and want to experiment on your own and don’t mind spending many weeks, months or even longer in cases in an assessment phase then try MicroTrends products as you can go at your own pace and not pay for sim usage of strategies.
