Here at TickTickTrader, we provide our registered traders with one (1) free license key to use. If you prefer to use NinjaTrader, kindly contact us via email or live chat to request the license key.
In order to download the newly released version of NinjaTrader and use our license to connect to the platform, please follow these steps:
Register using the same email address that you have previously registered with us. If you have an existing NinjaTrader account, you can simply log in to access your account.
Go to Additional Options, click Import License Key to indicate your NT8 license, and then select “Import.”
You may also go to your Account Setting, select Plans and click on the Import License Key.
- Please enter the License Key in the designated field and click on the Import button.
Upon successful completion, you will receive a confirmation message to acknowledge the successful import.
Navigate back to the Main Page and click on the Download button under the Download Desktop Platform tab. This will redirect you to the page with the Most Recent Release version. From there, click on the Download button again to initiate the installation process for the NinjaTrader application.
If you do not have the Microsoft .NET Framework 4.8 installed on your PC please download and install it here.
Firewall Software – NinjaTrader contacts its license server on application start-up for license key validation. If you have a firewall, spyware, or other such software running on your PC, please ensure that you grant NinjaTrader permission to access the internet, or you may receive an invalid or license-expired message.
