Hello, traders. Welcome to the NinjaTrader tutorial or the first module, Introduction to NinjaTrader. In this lesson, I’m going to show you how to download and install the platform to your computer. And, before we start this entire course, I wanted to tell you that this is actually the platform I use to trade future with. I don’t use any other platform and I think this is the best platform, by far, because of its rapidity to execute orders and, of course, the ability to modify active orders with the super dome.

Installing NinjaTrader

But let’s start by the beginning and let’s go to where you’re going to be able to download the NinjaTrader platform. The first thing you have to do is go to NinjaTrader Brokerage and, as you can see, you can see all the commissions that are for all the future contracts, the margins for forex and, of course, you can have a platform tour and you can purchase the platform. Now, this is where we are going to do it differently, because if you already have a live brokerage account and you want to link it with the NinjaTrader platform, you have to choose purchase, okay? When you choose purchase, you can see that you can purchase it, or you can lease it, or you can download the free addition.

But let’s say that you have an account with Interactive Brokers and you don’t like the Interactive Brokers platform, so you want to use the NinjaTrader platform. You have to purchase it or lease it on a monthly basis, quarterly basis, semiannually basis, or annually basis and, of course, if you purchase it, you can purchase it on a one-time payment or you can choose to pay it four times, each quarter. But what we’re going to do here is we’re going to download the platform on a real time demo account with Continuum. And Continuum will give us a very good, high speed accurate data on the future’s exchange.

Installing NinjaTrader Demo

So, what we’re going to do is we’re going to click on start free real demo and I’m going to put in all of my details. Now, you click start demo and you are going to get, right here, a link to download the NinjaTrader software. Now, it is very important for you to understand that you need at least these minimal requirements for the NinjaTrader to run smoothly. Now, I already have the NinjaTrader downloaded, but I’m going to show you what it looks like. So, you click on download NinjaTrader and you are going to get that download started. And once that download finishes, you click on the execution file and you are going to be prompted through the installation and you just click okay.

So, we’re going to do that, and you click on execute, and now the NinjaTrader platform is going to start downloading. I already have the NinjaTrader platform downloaded on my computer. That’s why I’m going to cancel this download but this is basically how to do it. Of course, if you are going to be trading live, you need to purchase the NinjaTrader or view the flexible lease options. Let’s say that you want to buy the platform. It’s going to prompt you to this page, and, of course, you have to choose the single payment or four monthly payments of $299, and you have to choose Interactive Broker as your broker.
