    Can't connect to live account

    Hey everyone,

    I recently opened a live account over at ninjatrader as I loved the platform. The problem I am having is when I received my live account login, and entered it onto the platform. I had only access to my demo account, and I still had the button "open a live account" at the top of the hotbar which I thought dissapears when you open a live account (attached an image)

    Anyone know how to switch to the live account?

    Or if i made something wrong

    Would appreciate any help!

    Thanks!

    Do you have a paid license key?

    Did you create a new Connection and enter your new
    credentials (username/password) into that new Connection?

    Use CC -> Connections -> Configure to add a new Connection.

    Multiple Connections can exist and be shown in the Connections
    dropdown menu. The thing is you will usually only be able to connect
    to one of them at a time. To connect to more than one at the same
    time, such as two different live accounts, well, that's where the
    Multi-Broker license comes in.

      Thanks for the reply bltdavid

      I don't have a paid license key, I thought I could use the live account without having a paid key with the downside being high commission. Is that correct?

      I did connect to the account and I also unchecked the demo box. However, when I connect to it, the only account I have is a simulation account that I created prior to opening the live account.

        NinjaTrader started out as charting platform company. The
        brokerage side was only added around 2014 -- so there are
        really two separate companies owned by NinjaTrader Group
        -- well, now three, since they added a clearing service.

        I'm not sure you can trade a live account without paying
        something to NinjaTrader -- they gotta make money from
        the platform
        some way or another -- commissions are
        revenue for the brokerage/clearing side.

        NinjaTrader support will confirm, I'm sure.

          There is a FREE LIVE NinjaTrader License: https://ninjatrader.com/Free-To-Use-Live-License

          It has limitations, of course, but if it meets your needs, it's a great choice.

          Thanks.

            Ah, I see ... but, without Chart Trader, ATM Strategies, OCO
            orders, etc etc, well, NT isn't quite the same.

            However, I do stand corrected.

            Yep, looks like it should be possible to trade a live account
            without paying anything to NinjaTrader -- but you sure lose
            a lot of great features when you go that route -- yuck.

            Your mileage may vary.

                Hello Badran24,

                A live license key is required to trade live in the NinjaTrader platform as mentioned. You can obtain one from the link below.


                There is a free option when you have an account with the NinjaTrader brokerage. It does not include all features of the NinjaTrader platform such as ChartTrader and ATM strategies. If you click the "i" icon for 'Core Essentials', 'Trader +' and 'Order Flow +', you can find more information.

                If you need any assistance in this regard, please send us an email at "platformsales[at]ninjatrader[dot]com".
