Connecting Ninjatrader to Bitmex does not work

    Hi all,

    I just tried to connect Ninjatrader to Bitmex, to get better charts for the Cryptos. I did everything according to the manual on the Bitmex website:

    But somehow, it does not work. I never get a connection, the status in Ninjatrader allways remains on Yellow (connecting).

    Any idea what could be the problem ?

    I suggest log this in Ninja Forum as well, though they most likely will say it is BitMex issue.

    I guess you doing it for research only: The BitMEX plugin does not support trading or any transactions. It only provides market data for research and testing purposes.

    Thanks for your input RedDuke.

    Yes exactly, I want that just for charting, not for actual trading.

    MrMuppet, I think tradingview does not offer tickcharts...

    But I just see that I can access and even trade BTC exchanges with SierraChart. I will try that.
