Does anyone know if there is an easy way to delete ALL of the instruments in the DEFAULT list in NinjaTrader. I accidently imported over 4600 symbols to the DEFAULT and it takes FOREVER to load now. Thx.

Thanks to all. I got a reply from NinjaTrader support that same nite. They had me rename the SQL file in the DB subdirectory which caused NT to rebuild one when I relaunched it. Of course, I had to recreate all instruments, but that was far easier than deleting them one by one.
