NinjaTrader – Multiple (Separate) Instance Creator

NinjaTrader Isolated installations

If you have to develop much in NinjaTrader 8 , or want to test/download/import different indicators,strategies or addons , you will see that all indicators are placed in one instance of platform, causing to increase the load of NinjaTrader. 

The solution is to create several different (isolated) instances (so, each instance will have it’s own folders in My Documents

Method 1

  1. Create a new shortcut of NinjaTrader 8 on your desktop and name it to i.e. NinjaTrader- my-instance
  2. Right click -> Properties and in target path, choose:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\NinjaTrader 8\bin64\NinjaTrader.exe" /d "C:\Users\MyUsername\Documents\NinjaTrader"

Method 2 

You can use a very basic app to create NinjaTrader isolated instances  (which creates different Custom folders and loads only one before starting of NT).  So, now you can create isolated instances and import different indicators & DLLs in different instances. App has a simple GUI:

  • Download the release version (also available Visual-Studio project). You can even create & commit your pull requests in fork.
