This update focuses on multi-threading caused issues for all products.  More updates are still planned for monthly or bi-weekly release as we work through various items associated with NT 8 new structure.  Thank you for your understanding.

Improvements & Fixes

BloodHound

  • #808  Improvement to the Play Alert sound file parameter.  Clicking on the sound file parameter will open an Open dialog window for selecting sound files.
  • #850  Fixed  an issue that could cause an error when deleting leaders, between nodes on the logic board.
  • #896, 900  Fixes and improvements to various remaining multi-threading lockups.  The way multi-threading is utilized has be restructured.
  • #903  Improvement to UI.  Added an ‘Auto Update’ toggle switch to turn calculations off or on. Most users should always leave this turned On. This should only be turned off if you experience a long delay/wait time when making changes to the logic of a large system.  This option allows the automatic recalculations (chart updating) to easily be turned off when making a lot adjustments to your logic. It should always be turned back on when you are finished editing the system, or closing the interface window.  The Apply button will perform a one time calculation, when turned off, allowing the user to periodically update the chart, as the system is being edited or worked on.
    REMEMBER to turn this back on when finished making your changes.  This option was located in the Help menu.

Improvements & Fixes

BlackBird

  • #846  Fixed the Pending… state message for the upper left display of the Market Info panel.  The display would show Flat when an order was in a pending state.

Improvements & Fixes

BloodHound

  • #828  Implemented a protection mechanism for indicators that use MaximumBarsLookBack.TwoHundredFiftySix.  When this is detected a message will be sent to the Log tab and a notification window will open.  The list on this page will be updated as more issues and limitations are found and protected against.
  • #853  Fixed the Error dialog window button. Clicking the ‘Copy to Clipboard’ button would cause a multi-threading error.
    Improved the error reporting to identify and report known NT 8 limitations/issues.

BlackBird

    Improved the error reporting to identify and report known NT 8 limitations/issues.
  • #863  Fixed two issues with the Scheduler.
      #1  If a day has two blocks of time, the second block of time did not allow trades to occur.
      #2  Blocks of time that span across midnight (i.e. CME Commodities ETH session) cause various issues.
  • #868  Fixed an issue during live trading that caused excessive order modifications.  Some brokers would return invalid order prices.  The order prices would include rounding errors.  E.G.  Broker would return a stop-loss price, for HG, as 2.7855000000000003, and BlackBird would try to correct the stop-loss price back to 2.7855.  BlackBird now corrects invalid rounding error prices returned by brokers.

Raven

  • #861  Removed ‘Entries per direction’ and ‘Entry handling’ settings in the NinjaTrader » Strategies widows » Order handling section.  Those settings would sometimes be visible.  They do not apply to Raven or BlackBird.

Renko Counter

  • #864  Fixed a display issue when scrolling the chart left or right.  The distance between the Renko Counter and bars would expand.

  • 805:  Fixed only one instance of BloodHound was added the chart when two BloodHound Signals/templates are being used in BlackBird.

This update includes various improvements and corrections.  No new features will be added to the NinjaTrader 7 version, as the software is being converted to NT 8.

Improvements & Fixes

BlackBird

  • 700;  Improvement to Market Info panel » Market Data.  It now updates more frequently and reliably.
  • 723;  Corrected an issue where Scheduling » Force Trades to Exit did not always flatten positions when ‘Calculate on Bar Close’ was set to True.
  • 742;  Corrected the Trade Controls panel » Buy & Sell buttons.  Entry orders are changed or modified to Limit orders at the current Ask or Bid price.
  • 744;  Corrected an issue where the order flags would not display on the chart if an indicator, that runs in a separate subpanel than price, was on top of the price panel.
  • 750;  Improvement to Trailing Actions tab » Evaluate Using setting for profit targets.  The Evaluate Using » ‘Action Furthest from Price’ and ‘Action Closest to Price’ was measuring from market price.   It now measures from entry price.  This is more appropriate for profit targets.
  • 751;  Corrected the Placement Safeguard » Mode = ‘Constrain Target and Stop Loss” pre-execution check.  Constrain Target and Stop Loss was canceling order instead of constraining orders as expected.
  • 752;  Improvement to Trailing Rules » Trigger On » On Order Status option when used with the Delay option.  Trailing Rules did not execute if the On Order Status event occurred before the Delay event.
  • 757;  Improvement to the order handling state engine.  Submitted scale-in entry orders are no longer canceled by the state engine when the initial position(s) is closed out by a profit target or stop-loss.  This allows scale-in orders to re-enter a position (in the same direction) if a stop-loss is hit and the market reverses to resume the trend after a pullback.  Pending scale-in entry orders (entry orders waiting for some condition to occur, and thus have not been submitted to the exchange yet) are canceled.

HeatMapPro

  • 753;  Corrected an issue where the dialog title occasionally was missing when running in Windows 7 or 8.  The dialog title states which setting for Percent Change Price is being used, Prev. Close or Open.

BlackBird

  • 626;  New Scaling-in/Averaging-in support for entry orders.  Various options are available to stagger/trigger entry orders at different times, instead of having to submit all entry orders at the same time.  I.E. This allows market orders to be used for scaling-in to a position.  E.G. BloodHound signals can be used to add more contracts to an existing long or short position.
  • 698;  New Global Auto Trail button with a Lock button added to Order Monitor panel.
  • The file name is now visible in the Settings panel.  The Risk and Money Management buttons are removed to make room.

  • 671;  Added new option, Repeat » Ticks (any direction).  This new option has been added to Actions Repeat » Mode: Repeat Indefinitely » Repeat Every: Ticks (any direction). Ticks (any direction) will trigger a Repeat when the market price moves any direction.
  • 673;  Improvements to the Dynamic Planner » Scale to Fit algorithm.  Added new Keep Quantity Ration slider.  This slider sets the importance for keeping the number of contracts balanced among the different order sets.  The new Scale to Fit algorithm keeps the number of contract more evenly distributed among multiple order sets.
  • 698;  Improved the Dynamic Planner’s behavior.  Now when manually moving a profit target or stop-loss it will lock in place after moving the entry order.  Any profit target or stop-loss that has not been touched will move with the entry order.
