NinjaTrader is a trading platform that offers advanced charting capabilities, back-testing of trading strategies, and trade simulation. The platform supports a large number of third-party add-ons, including custom technical indicators and trading strategies, which makes it a highly versatile tool for nearly every type of trader.
The platform was developed by the company NinjaTrader, LLC, and the first version was released already in 2003. Since then, the platform has gone through several major upgrades, and continues to be in use by forex, CFD, options, and futures brokers & traders world-wide. Despite this, the NinjaTrader platform has not been as widely adopted as some other platforms like MetaTrader and cTrader.
