NinjaTrader 8 Chart Setup


AMS DeltaPrint© Setup

Welcome to AMS and thank you for signing up!

We will guide you through the process on how to setup your charts
for the 1st time. Please carefully read the instruction below.

When you have opened up NinjaTrader 8, you can enter your license key by opening up the Tools menu and select the AMS License Manager at the bottom.

After successful activation you can
start NT8. Recommended: 64-bit version.

Connection your datafeed

You can use our software with every data feed that connects with NinjaTrader. For example DTN IQFeed, Rithmic or Kinetick.

If you do not have a data feed running yet we can recommend getting a free demo from Rithmic.

Rithmic has advantages over the other ones because Rithmic is the only one providing unlimited depth, where the other ones only provide 10 levels of the order book.

Depending on the type of template file you also want to set the right type of periodicity.
Initially it will be on a 1 minute chart.

For DeltaPrint use we always recommend using the AMS RevBars.

Higher .     10-12  tick Reveral
Extreme .  18-24  tick Reveral

Normal:     10-12 tick Reveral

The “best” option will depend on volatility and personal preference.
