  • 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.

NT7 auto reconnect connection

NT7 isn't auto-reconnecting on a connection drop. It just shows Zen Fire disconnected and red status. If I manually disconnect/reconnect, it is fine.

This is unacceptable to me because the entire reason I am running NT7 is to record GomRecorder data and share it with Elite (see other thread), which cannot be backfilled so the connection must be always on.

Can this be changed by C# ninjascript? I can run a 'strategy' and just let it monitor the connection status and force a reconnect since NT7 won't?

I am rusty when it comes to NT, anyone help with this?


Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.

Mine will reconnect any time the router reestablished a connection to the internet and plays a sound file.

But as @max-td suggests you might have to set connect on Start Up for this to work:

Under Control Center>Tools>Account Connection> ZenFire (or what you named it) Click Change, Next. Click on connect on startup. See Pict.

Futures Edge on FIO

How much money do you need to trade futures successfully?

Check the variables mentioned on this page

NinjaTrader Version 7

If they're OK, and trace is not telling you about failed retries, it sounds like a report bug to Ninja situation.

Just curious, when the connection is lost, the strategy continues running, nes pas ? Seems like it must be, otherwise why have an OnConnectionStatus method ?

I know that you can't start a strategy w/o a connection, but not sure what happens when you the connection (is it still enabled, etc).
