The is the most advanced version yet, many months in the making and 1000+ hours in development since the last version in Nov 2023, with iterative polishing of features, and incremental release of new features. We have also added features and fixes reported from the ATS Discord Group and are delighted for the feedback and organic evolution of the product.
AutoSync Turnkey Workspaces
Also, Turnkey Workspaces are polished and ready for installation and will stay fresh and up to date with automatic sync from the cloud to NinjaTrader 8 via the AFT.Desktop App.
Trade Plan Goals (TPG)
The longest new feature “Trading Plan goals (TPG) filter” first release is available in the sim and live for valid subs for lifetime licenses older than 1 year annually – optional renewal will be required to unlock and access the AFT8 advanced features. As this is brand new we are instructed traders to try it only in sim mode to learn and feedback via the forum for any assistance or Q&A and issues or caveats. Inline Automatic % and Cash win and loss limits rules for winning and losing signals and long or short per session and per week – ideal for prop firm trading to not bust the rules!
Signal Execution Filter (f2)
This has been built out with in-line controls to allow micro-management of trading systems rules for winning and losing signals and long or short per session and week.
Algo Entry and Algo Trade Manager Info View
Realtime info from the state and activity of each algo asset stream is displayed to the controller info bar inline to allow easy transparency of the mode of operation and function of algo entry and trade manager.
Proprietary Bars/ Super bars
ATS is the inventor of Adaptive Prop Bars and now Bad Tick Proof Super Bars
NinjaTrader does suffer from the occasional bad tick data from the data brokerage connection which can skew the charts
- AFT bars detect this and remove the bad ticks so you do not have to delete and reset your data – our bars will continue without the erroneous data – no spike gaps or skew
- NT can also be sent data out of hours on a Saturday and try to display it on a chart, but our bars use the correct trading hours, invalid hours data is also filtered out
- AFT Super bars do not lag like NT8 bars wasting CPU cycles testing for trading hours, and data 24/7 flows within the correct trading exchange hours – available for all Time-based bars
- AFT Adaptive bars – work off various formulas to optimize the bars to trading phase- 1 size-fits-all instrument modes scalp, day trade, and swing settings also with tick and hours filters
NinjaTrader 8 advanced execution API methods
NinjaTrader 8 tends to get swamped on low to medium-performance computers/servers and slow disks non-NVME with lots of order data, can get sluggish and even get fouled up and require a restart when trading more than the average day trader would, generally when using trade copiers and strategies – some worse than others they all foul up NT8 eventually – one way to cope with this is to reset the database every week and delete the logs and trade files keep it lean and mean. NT8 was not designed for 20 prop firm accounts mirrored in parallel it was designed for a scalper doing a few traders here and there. However, AFT8 has been tested with 500 algos in parallel on NT8 and works 100% fine with no problems over multiple 6months+ of operation to large sizes of data without a glitch in hedge fund trading sim and live. AFT8 is not the problem nor is NinjaTrader 8, it is the tools people use on it and the prop firm craze and trade copiers and knowledge or lack thereof, the beauty of NT8 is that allows us access to the API underlying accounts and connections – NinjaTrader 8 has superb trading technology underlying its GUI, AFT8 plugs into this layer and uses direct method access into the API layers of the account and connection directly and uses methods that bypass all the overhead of strategies, trade copiers and even the best run of the mill tools from the NT ecosystem. The result this avoids the typical foul-ups inside NT8. AFT8 uses advanced execution and asynchronous threading methods to avoid conflict and thread locks inside NT8, usually requiring a restart and even jammed-up positions that can only be resolved by using the NinjaTrader web – which we advise always to have on alongside NT8 in case of the net or platform failure we also recommend to restart NT8 every day and get data and start afresh for optimal trading and data.
AFT8 Optional Renewals
AFT8 is now older than 1 year and some of the traders will now need to renew to get the latest greatest features via the AFT core features will still function for all in the sim and partial non-advanced features for live trading modes but advanced modes and new features will not- this allows a win-win situation so traders get the best and we can keep the lights on and deliver quality to keep increasing your edge. It is also optional so AFT will still work but to get the full gamut of features advanced and new a renewal can be purchased when it suits – for full details visit the main ATS website section Optional Annual Renewal
