Update

Postby Jalarupa » Mon Oct 03, 2016 9:27 am

I really appreciate you taking the time to voice your concerns.

We have always promised our lifetime license holders that they would never have to pay a single cent for future updates. If we didn't offer new lifetime license holders the same deal, we wouldn't be true to our word.

FX Synergy 2.0 is a huge undertaking. We have re-designed and re-written everything from scratch. Earlier this year we were reluctant to release anything regarding FX Synergy 2.0 because we wanted to be 100% sure the official plans would stick. We are working with a lot of different coaches and educators, and many of them have offered a lot of valuable feedback for the new version. Some of them we have worked with very closely on certain features, which they are very eager to share with their students, and as a result they have told their students what we are working on, some in great detail. In early 2016, this prompted an increasing amount a inquires from students asking about FX Synergy 2.0, and we felt that we had to make an official statement. Big mistake.

We are working on a large industrial-grade solution that involves both client software, backend services and numerous integrations. It requires a huge amount of testing and tweaking before it will be released, and we have made many adjustments along the way. We have always delivered first-class products, and will continue to do so, even if it means releasing something later than expected. Our developers and testers need to work stress-free, so we won't be announcing a release date until about 2 weeks before the actual release, once we are absolutely certain that everything is ready to go. If we give any kind of ETA we will be held to it, just like the last one, and we don't want that.

Our intentions, since the day Pecunia Systems was founded, has always been to deliver innovative trading solutions, and we stand by that. Please have patience and believe in us. We have very big plans, it's just taking us a bit longer to realise them, unfortunately. Rest assured that FX Synergy 2.0, and many other things, are coming in the future.

FX SYNERGY 2.0 - Update

Postby Jalarupa » Sat Dec 03, 2016 2:39 pm

Back in February we announced our plans for FX Synergy 2.0, and the amount of feedback we have received has been nothing short of amazing. We want to extend a huge thank you to everyone who sent us their words of encouragement, suggestions and feature requests, big or small. We sincerely appreciate it.

FX Synergy 2.0 is a completely new platform, everything has been re-written from scratch, and we had originally planned to release FX Synergy 2.0 this year (hence the announcement in February), unfortunately, during the development process we came across a number of unforseen challenges that turned out to take much longer to overcome than we had ever imagined.

Many of you have been asking about MetaTrader 5, and we are pleased to announce that FX Synergy 2.0 also will be supporting MetaTrader 5, along with MetaTrader 4, cTrader, NinjaTrader and Sierra Chart. Support for additional platforms will be added in FX Synergy 2.1 and onwards.

We seriously cannot wait to show you what we have created, and to get FX Synergy 2.0 into your hands as soon as possible we are releasing a public beta next year, which will run for 3-6 months. We will be announcing the beta release date as soon as we can. Rest assured that FX Synergy 2.0 most certainly is coming to a computer near you in 2017.

Since May we have sent out emails with status updates, and based on your feedback it’s clear that not everyone has been receiving them. To rectify this, all future status updates will also be posted to our blog.

Update - August 2, 2017

Postby Jalarupa » Thu Aug 10, 2017 9:20 am

FX Synergy 2.0 adds support for MetaTrader 5, cTrader, Sierra Chart and NinjaTrader 8. While these platforms are all highly requested, the most requested platform by far is NinjaTrader 8.

Many have asked us about NinjaTrader 7, and the sad fact is that NinjaTrader 7 doesn’t offer the same level of integration, so unfortunately it cannot be supported.

When our developers began work on supporting NinjaTrader 8, it had been in public beta for a while, and considered a stable platform by the trading community. In fact, many traders had already dropped NinjaTrader 7 in favor of NinjaTrader 8 (still in beta), and were screaming at us for FX Synergy to support NinjaTrader 8.

During the early stages of the integration we ran into a number of issues, which is to be expected when using a beta platform, however, the issues were so severe that we couldn’t offer NinjaTrader 8 support in a beta release of FX Synergy 2.0, and since this was the most requested integration, releasing a beta of FX Synergy 2.0 without NinjaTrader 8 support simply wasn’t an option. Beta updates of NinjaTrader 8 kept coming, and our developers kept working, and finally in November of last year, NinjaTrader 8 was offically released. Since then, many issues have been fixed in various updates, but very unexpectedly, to this date, we are still experiencing challenges with the platform. If there are any NinjaTrader 8 developers reading this, you have probably experienced at least some of the same issues we are facing.

We will not be releasing anything unless we are absolutely certain it will work perfectly for 99% of users, and we will not be dropping support for NinjaTrader 8 either (even though we have considered doing so since the issues at times have been beyond critical), so this leaves us with 3 options:

1) Release the beta of FX Synergy 2.0 without NinjaTrader 8 support, and add it later in a beta update. The challenge in doing so, is that it would very likely delay the official release of FX Synergy 2.0, and we don’t want a beta period of more than 6 months, at most.

2) Keep working on NinjaTrader 8 support until the platform is stable. That could take a while.

3) Give NinjaTrader 8 one more chance, and if it’s still not a stable platform in the next few months, continue with FX Synergy 2.0 without NinjaTrader 8, until it can be supported.

Quite honestly, we are not keen on any of the above.

In a last effort to not let any NinjaTrader 8 users down, we have decided on the last option, especially since we have already spent so much time on the platform, and we really want to release the beta with NinjaTrader 8 support.

While we want to keep our promise of NinjaTrader 8 support, we also need to release FX Synergy 2.0 to everyone else who is not using NinjaTrader 8.

Whatever happens over the next few months, FX Synergy 2.0 is coming. The next update will be with a release date and a NinjaTrader 8 status.

Yeah thank Salez... I'm going to redo it... Kreslik has been very temperamental of late...

The problem with that is I still need to be able to trade off of trendlines...

It helps me with my psychology when I do not have to physically pull the trigger... I don't know why this is... but when an EA enters a trade for me, the hard part is over... and the trade management can begin... ;)

But thanks for the suggestion... I'll look into it in the time being until FX Synergy gets their s**t together...

The above announcement is very significant for myself as it opens me up to other platforms which may do things better than MT4...

Case in point the migration to NinjaTrader allows one to take advantage of the platforms' superior ability to keep drawn trendlines from moving and changing their angle when one changes the scale or timeframe of a chart... Which we all know MT4 and CTrader fundamentally struggle with...

But wait there's more to get excited about... NinjaTrader... The fact that Ninja Trader lets you create actionable trading instructions when price hits a trendline via the alerts Tab... Have a look below...

Image

Above showing the trendlines being drawn on a M5 Chart within NinjaTrader

Image

Now the same lines on the D1 Chart... Watch what happens when we stretch the chart out...

Image

As you can see the trendlines maintain their integrity all throughout this abuse...

Image

Above showing the moment the trade short get actioned by the platform on the D1

Image

Now showing how it looks on the M5 where the line was originally drawn...

In order to get this done one would simply draw the line and right click on it and enter into the ALERTS properties... as shown below...

Image

Why does this matter?

Well one could build very compelling trades and let these trades be copied/managed by FX Synergy over all of ones MT4 accounts - FX Synergy can and still does do the trade management ie moving stops / scaling in and scaling out ensuring that risk parameters are honoured even while you sleep...

I know this seems like a lot to take in... BUT trust me when FX Synergy 2.0 (the reason for this thread) launches... its going to be a proverbial GAME CHANGER

I look forward to working with all of you who are with me on the FX Synergy train...

Let me know if you have any questions...?
