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.
If you do not have the Microsoft .NET Framework 4.8 installed on your PC please download and install it from 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.
A pop-up window will appear to ask if you want free live market data, select No. You are registered to use the simulation version that comes with the free license key we have provided you with.
Once the download is completed, run the .exe file, and follow the on-screen instructions.
