NinjaTrader 7 Connection Guide
Do I need a license to use Ninjatrader?
OneUp Trader provides a FREE NinjaTrader license for all evaluation account. Please follow the connection guide below.
Can I use my own license key?
Yes, "Rithmic for Ninjatrader Brokerage" or "Rithmic" will work with our OneUpTrader logins. If you already have your own license and that's not a visible option under PROVIDER when you add a connection, then you must contact Ninjatrader Support to enable OneUpTrader Rithmic connection for your license key.
Our provided License key will automatically have the proper Rithmic server as the only option in adding.
You can email NT support here: firstname.lastname@example.org
What version do I need?
You will need Ninjatrader update 35 or higher if using our license key provided below.
