This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

Thanks: 6 given, 4 received

Thanks to everyone who provided their advice on this topic. I think I have found the solution (though I'm not sure why).

I changed the name of my import file from "$EURUSD.Bid" to "$EURUSD.Last" and re-uploaded the data and was able to run the mtf strategy.

I have no idea why this worked, but it did. For some reason NT must not like the Bid data label.

Thanks again for all the help and advice.

Same Problem

I ran into the same issue myself. I solve it by changing the start date for my strategy. I had January 1st but that was a holiday so that seemed to be problem. Changed the start day back a few days and now it works.

Just in case anyone else runs into this issue.
