NinjaTrader 8 Connection Guide

Do I need a license to use Ninjatrader?

OneUp Trader provides a FREE license for trials. Use the license key listed in the connection guide below.

You are required to have a licensed version of Ninjatrader in order to use the platform once funded. Licensing can be paid for either quarterly, semi-annually, annually, or lifetime.

To obtain a license from Ninjatrader, please visit: Ninjatrader License

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: support@ninjatrader.com
