Could not find a search phrase to figure this out....
If I pull up a DAILY chart of Globex ES (or NQ or YM) on NinjaTrader 7.0 using Zen-Fire data feed, the system calculates the range of each daily bar based on a 24hr clock, with each bar starting at 12:01 am and ending at midnight EST. I'm trying to get each daily bar to OPEN at 15:30 Central Time and to close at 15:15 central time.
I have set the DATA SERIES to CME US Futures ETH, and the SESSION MANAGER has CME US Futures ETH correctly set to GMT-6.
If you subscribe to a quality data feed, you will likely get ETH data, which uses the settlement price instead of the close for futures. Kinetick is such a quality data feed. As Kinetick EOD comes free with NinjaTrader, all you need to do is to connect to Kinetick and you get the ETH bars with the settlement price for futures.
You can experiment with double connecting
- first connection to Kinetick EOD for daily data
- second connection to Zenfire
In that case daily data should be loaded from Kinetick and intraday data from Zenfire. However, I do not know, how Zenfire displays Sunday data, and whether it has a tendency to overwrite daily data loaded from Kinetick. When double connecting, the SIM trader will not work, because it always uses the first connection. Therefore, SIM traders do not like double connecting.
If you test it, please let me know, whether it works or not.
