Unfortunately NT is not the best platform for Forex: You can't hedge, you can't open and open multiple seperate positions. Also it has some weird ATM 'features', which I consider bugs, but NT support insists of 'working as intended'. Additionally you can't have a 'Strategy' (EA) supporting your manual trading, like managing Pending Orders, Trailing Stop, etc.
But it also is highly customizable and has some nice features like Tick-, Volume- and Renko-Charts. Also the support of C# is great and thus offers a Plugin-rich community. Also the 'Market Replay' connection is awesome.
I really hope they improve NT for Forex with NT8. Overall I'd give it a solid 3/5 score.
Ninjatrader is the best platform IMHO. I am a c# developer so naturally I love NT over Metatrader which is junk. I've also used jForex which I like very much but it is only supported on banks outside the US like Dukascopy. I can't believe that myFxBook doesn't support ninjatrader, that sucks. I guess I will have to go to Zulutrade and hope they do.
