TrendSniper is a NinjaTrader 7 strategy (NinjaTrader 8 available April 2018) and as such you will need a licensed installation of NinjaTrader 7 as well as a suitable data feed to populate the charts and a broker through which trades will be executed.

TrendSniper has been designed to work with NinjaTrader 7. We are adding NinjaTrader 8 support in April 2018 and are taking orders for this version now.
How do I install TrendSniper?
