I am using zenfire, and many time, when I am trying to load my chart, I have recieved you are not connected into the server. I am not trying to do any magic. I have 2 trading window, with tick chart and 30days of history, but still, I am not able to get my data from the server.
Any advice, how can I resolv this. I have some fund on my account, but not too much, so maybe this is the issue, but if not I am more than happy to pay any service/backup provider, to receive data immidietly. I need only for the majors, and only L1 deep.: 6s, TF, gold, CL etc... but mainly only TF what I am interested in

Thanks: 1,520 given,
Don't know if this "not able to get my data from the server." is a one time or all the time thing?
Also, read this a couple of times and I'm going to ask what could be considered a really dumb question/answer as I don't know your level of NT7 knowledge, but before loading your TICK CHART did you connect to ZENFIRE and have it show green in the bottom connect bar. Attached picture. Also the order in which you connect to providers makes a difference as well. Plus with Instrument Manager you want to be sure it is configured properly for your Ninjatrader and Arrowfieldtrading which could contribute problems as well.
Now if you are trying to switch back and forth quickly between a lot of Instruments with NT7 without having a Market Analyzer window Open loading your 30days of history then you may be getting bogged down with refresh times to your charts. If I remember correctly having the market analyzer open with the instruments you are trading will help to load and retain your historical data if properly configured.
I have only been using Ninja Trader for a few years now and I have a LOT TO LEARN myself on the platform.
IMHO NT7 is best for trading the market and staying with one Instrument. There are a few settings and things you can do to NT7 that will make it quicker for you and also work better with zenfire (Personally I don't use zenfire but I am sure NT7 support has helped you get up and running there.)
Hi, It was helpful, but only a bit. First of all: I was connected to zenfire. But the historical data for the given day was not downloaded. I was restarting the platform, tried to force load all historical data etc... Nothing. Today morning, when I logged in again, everything was working just fine.
That's why I have been decieded that, I am ready to pay for a service, to get data, without hesitation. I dont want to do magic tricks. When I need data, than I needed. Simple. But thanks for helping!
Is kinetic is working fine in case of realtime data? Do you have a subciption there?
Wow I didn't know you could get it so that you could get Zenfire without paying. Maybe it is through your broker, eh? Never tried Zenfire. Your best bet for getting the information you need on services that work with NT7 is to check with NT7 support site and join the support forum as well. There is a matrix you can find that compares all the service providers that currently match up with NT7.
NT7 is a great trading platform, but there are many variables that can affect performance. A service that provides SUPER FAST FLASH INSTANT news and instrument history to one NT7 user can seem very slow to another NT7 user due to the NT7 user's setup parameters. There are a whole lot of switches that need to be configured to your individual platform and trading style.
One last thing, which you probably already know. On any given day your trading platform NT7 or otherwise can have problems. I run both TOS and NT7 and it is not unusual for me to have problems with one. 99% of the time the problems are on my end and computer.
Your broker should be your first contact regarding the data feed. If your issues were over the weekend, they could be doing some maintenance. Also some connection issues at market end of day in my experience.
I'm not live yet, so I have to apply for free demo/sim feed for CQG every 3 weeks from Amp Futures. I am also trying Mirus/Zenfire feed and have found some connection issues.
