Since the folks at NinjaTrader have been very unhelpful, and their promised new release is very very late, I am trying to get some answers from the IQFeed community.

Basically the question is simple: is it safe to use NinjaTrader7 with the latest version of IQFeed (5.1) at the time of the question. I am currently on the latest "officially supported" release for NinjaTrader and have been reluctant to upgrade to the latest IQfeed release without confirmation from NinjaTrader about compatibility. But I've sort of lost hope of ever getting that from them, and any custom code I have is severely held back as I cannot use any of the new features.

So is it safe to take the risk and upgrade to IQfeed 5.1 even though it is not "officially supported" by NinjaTrader?

Thanks for any input.

Good afternoon,
It is our understanding that Ninja Trader has undergone testing recently and that they are now fully supporting the 5.1 feed. In fact, the IQFeed connection guide lists 5.1 as a prerequisite download to installing their datafeed.

Have you been in contact with them recently to see if their previously mentioned stance has changed?

No. My last contact with them was maybe three months ago. At the time they kept promising a new version and said that they will not be testing the existing version with IQFeed 5x

I guess they changed their mind since...
