We just released Beta 21 that introduces native Zen-Fire 64-bit support.

Enabling 64-bit Support for Zen-Fire and Vision Financial Markets - NinjaTrader Support Forum

I would be happy if NT .20 or .21 and Zenfire would run error free with XP or Win 7 - my configuration:
Renko Chart (5bricks 30 days) - Tick 100 Chart (actual day) - Daily Chart (365 days). Indicators only Volume.

When I change between different futures (6A,B,C,E,J,S,ES,TF,YM,FDAX, FGBL, FESX, ZW, NQ, ...) first time data is loaded correctly - if chart is not constantly open to current data feed but often changed (because Iīm looking if my setup occurs and I can place a trade) there seems to be an issue with reloading. Then NT

I re-installed NT .20 and .21 several times (after uninstalling everything and deleting old pathes manually to ensure that there is not any old data) - after this for 1 hour NT races and works with high speed as wanted and estimated, after this first hour (could be even 1-2 hours) it skows down and then it stops loading data correctly - task manager shows that memory increases and increses and after quarter hour loading there comes error message (unable to load selected amount of chart data) - this is crazy, it seems that there occurs a unended loop when Renko chart is build or data is re-loaded ... donīt know exactly ... when I uninstall NT it works again.

Repairing Database etc. doesnīt help, too. Then I recognized that there is another issue with wrong historical chart data on 6A for example. I had to download any hisorical data new because I erased everything from my trading machine - Mirus / Zenfire told me that historical data comes from Ninja Servers and not from Zenfire. I tried to get help from Mirus support (remote maintenance) a technical (Brian) has seen the problems, told me something that there isnīt any support working at this time (friday about 3-4pm EST) at Ninjatrader - but today I didnīt get any reaction until now too - perhaps they are still in weekend.

Has anybody same issues? Uses Renko offered by NT 7 itself? Knows more about wrong historical data?
Perhaps any German speaking guys to discuss directly?

I think could be a good idea to change broker or software or both ... or not to use Renko

I don't really nothin about nothin, but I saw a video that Richard did on Move the Markets where he said he is using the 32bit version because unless you need the extra memory, which apparently most people don't, it's actually better than the 64bit for various reasons.

Futures Edge on FIO

How much money do you need to trade futures successfully?

I dont trust the 64 bit zen connection yet, some of my DOM's dont show any market depth, and then i disable the 64 bit connect to the 32 bit and the depth is there. I have not made any live trades on the 64 bit, but placed a order away from the market and theDOM froze and the windows circle by the mouse keep going in a circle for like 30 seconds.
