Welcome to

Welcome, Guest!

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.

You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

Delete All Instruments in DEFAULT list

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.

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.

DELETE instruments

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.
