Sender Email

Here is the instruction to set up sender email for Gmail, the most popular email service.
WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND GMAIL FOR THE MOST STABLE PERFORMANCE.

On NinjaTrader, please go to Tools > Options, then choose the Misc tab and configure the settings as follows:

  • Server: smtp.gmail.com
  • Port: 587
  • SSL: enabled (ticked)
  • User: your_gmail_username (please DON’T include “@gmail.com”)
  • Password: your_gmail_password

Please click “OK” to apply any change made, otherwise you will be testing the previous settings.

For other email services (Yahoo, AOL, Hotmail, Comcast), please read this full guide written by Lowell: www.ninjatrader.com/support/forum/showthread.php?p=262008#post262008

Receiver Email

In the setting dialog of the alert tool (here we take Super Alert as an example), please input an email which you want alerts to be sent to. Remember to enable the email function.

receiver-config

Most phone providers provide you with a special email (see below). Any email sent to this special email will turn into a SMS message to your phone. Thus, you can employ this feature to create a SMS alert. Based on your provider below, you just simply replace “cellnumber” with your actual cell number.

For example, in the setting dialog of the alert tool, you set 1234567890@txt.att.net to be your receiver email. Then every time an alert is triggered, you will get a SMS message sent directly to your 1234567890 phone.

  • AT&T – cellnumber@txt.att.net
  • Verizon – cellnumber@vtext.com
  • T-Mobile – cellnumber@tmomail.net
  • Sprint PCS – cellnumber@messaging.sprintpcs.com
  • Virgin Mobile – cellnumber@vmobl.com
  • MetroPCS – cellnumber@mymetropcs.com
  • US Cellular – cellnumber@email.uscc.net
  • Nextel – cellnumber@messaging.nextel.com
  • Boost – cellnumber@myboostmobile.com
  • Alltel – cellnumber@message.alltel.com

Please note that:

  • Non-US phone providers may be different, so please check with your provider.
  • Data charges may apply.

■ Futures and forex trading contains substantial risk and is not for every investor. An investor could potentially lose all or more than the initial investment. Risk capital is money that can be lost without jeopardizing ones’ financial security or life style. Only risk capital should be used for trading and only those with sufficient risk capital should consider trading. Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results.

■ Hypothetical performance results have many inherent limitations, some of which are described below. No representation is being made that any account will or is likely to achieve profits or losses similar to those shown; in fact, there are frequently sharp differences between hypothetical performance results and the actual results subsequently achieved by any particular trading program. One of the limitations of hypothetical performance results is that they are generally prepared with the benefit of hindsight. In addition, hypothetical trading does not involve financial risk, and no hypothetical trading record can completely account for the impact of financial risk of actual trading. For example, the ability to withstand losses or to adhere to a particular trading program in spite of trading losses are material points which can also adversely affect actual trading results. There are numerous other factors related to the markets in general or to the implementation of any specific trading program which cannot be fully accounted for in the preparation of hypothetical performance results and all which can adversely affect trading results.
