View Full Version : Is Gain Capital Group the only FX connection to NT ?
12-06-2006, 05:44 AM
If I understood well from NT Support Forum - The only connection and provider for Forex Market for Ninja Trader is Gain Capital Group, in fact its division Forex.com ?
If so, why did you choose just this broker? What are benefits for a small trader like me to trade Forex with them via NT in comparison to other retail oriented brokers like IB or MB Trading ?
Do they provide tight spread as for instance MB Trading which has most of the time spread on EUR/USD just 1 pip ?
I know the MT Trading platform is poor as compared with NT but tight spread for a scalper like me is essential to survive when I am to close a wrong trade entry point. And this is however often.

That is correct, at this time we support only GAIN/FOREX.com for FX trading through NinjaTrader.

I am new to ninja can you tell me please if the the Gain demo prices on DOM would be the exact same as if I were using a live account with Gain ???

Yes, real-time data is the same between the demo and live Gain connection.

Thanks for quick reply
Ninja is one great platform but only as good as the brokers spreads that feed it and as far as Gain (forex prices) goes from what I have seen so far they are a shower of cowboys --- would it not be better for ninja to quide all its clients to the brokers with the tighest spreads ??? after all the tighter the spread the better it is for all traders

@NT Support Team
Is the above list with
still complete or are there additional supported Forex Brokers now, as I see that you partner list grows rapidly.

This is still the list as of today.

Just as a follow-up - I see there are a number of other brokers listed on your partner page that appear to support forex trading. For example, AMP Futures and Forex, and Zaner Futures and Forex among others.
If the four brokers listed in this thread (Gain, IB, PFG and MBT) are still the only connections available for forex, how is forex trading done through the other brokers listed on your partner page? Would the connection be done through one of the four listed connections? For example, to connect to AMP futures, is that actually a Gain connection?
Thanks in advance...

The four data sources listed are still the only ones which are supported, but different brokerage partners do offer connections to those four.

I am wondering, which of the three Forex brokers (Gain, PFGBest, MBT) has unfiltered ticks data feed ?
I have IB and I know IB does not provide unfiltered ticks. It is frustrating when I open a currency pair tick based chart and it shows blank.

Hello Edward Kunafi,
Thank you for your post.
Since we are not the data provider, it would be best that you contact each provider and ask them directly.
If you are just interested in data and do not need to connect to a broker, you might want to look into Kinetick (http://www.kinetick.com)as a data provider for NinjaTrader 7. With Kinetick for data, you could connect to your IB brokerage account and use the data from Kinetick. Unfortunately, Kinetick is not supported by NT V6.5.
