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.

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!

BWT Precision AutoTrader 7 by MicroTrends
BWT Precision AutoTrader 7 – merged MicroTrends technolog with Bluewave Trading to produce the most user friendly controllable system for NinjaTrader 7 – a new set of evolved MTDS7 technologies  were used for this project – and is available direct from

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.
