Back testing ER on Ninja?

If you wanted to back test the E-mini russell for 100 days how would you do that. I am dumb founded on how to go back and test. My data does not go back that far. Not only that the particular contract has no volume. Would you use the "Regular Big" Russell if so how do you find it on Ninja. I have DTIQ for my feed. Just wondering if anyone has the same problem.

Thanks
Hector

Answer
This post has been selected as an answer to the original posters question Answer


Use the continuous contact, it will backfill. I think for IQFeed the symbol is TFS# or @TFS#, check the instrument manager in NinjaTrader.

Mike

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.
6)

Mike thanks for responding back. I looked on my Instrument Manager and there is not a TFS# or @TFS#.
Do you another way to input this into my Instrument Manager. I have tried to search for it and it does not find anything.

Thanks
Hector
