Ah, so you haven't started the work on fixing the issues with your API to Ninja at all. Just a few meetings. If the API work is to be canned please just tell us so we know.

It's of course entirely up to you, but Ninja has been developed over many years and has a lot of functionality. IMO it would be a much better use of development time to fix the API first then add automated features to your existing platform - that would immediately give all of your clients access to Ninja functionality. It's a far bigger win.

As we have said before, the help we are getting to rectify this problem from ninja has not been the best, the issues were only with some clients using this , not all.
The clients using ninja currently with us will not receive the new updated platform from ninja

I'm confused. Is it possible to sign up to Prospreads and use Ninja? I thought you'd stopped offering it when you changed from being Futurespreads?

As i mentioned it before that we still have clients that use Ninja, but wont be getting the new version.
So we are not offering Ninja as an automated trading platform.

Thanks for the reply. I'm confused about it though -

To be fair, the main issues are with Prospreads API as I understand it. I don't think Ninja have these problems with other brokers, and the whole point of an API is to seperate functionality and interface in a modular fashion.

You also haven't answered the question - are the API development fixes being canned?

This sentence is confusing:

"The clients using ninja currently with us will not receive the new updated platform from ninja "

Are you saying that clients using Ninja with you will not be able to use the next version of Ninja - Ninja 7? If the API is not fixed/updated how will you know that clients are using the updated Ninja platform? What does 'will not receive' mean in this context? How do you have any say in who will receive a third party platform?

thanks

in an email from prospreads, they advised that "Yes, we are going to launch spot FX on our platform. We are just testing it in the office before we launch it, but everything is currently running smoothly, so we are hopeful that within a few weeks this will be available for our clients."

I am really excited about the news. Can't wait

Me too! if the latest NT can't be used, does that mean the basic version (the free one without the automated bells and whistles, as available through some brokers) is still available?
