If I wanted to run a replay for a strategy in NT7, but using the 90 days of tick data from kinetick and not NT server can this be done?

I want to run a strategy on the kinetick 90 day tick and just have it run through fast like the market replay so I can check 3 months of executions but not using the faulty NT server tick data.

The market replay does not use the same file format as the historical data base. Market replay correctly synchronizes all ticks of different bar series, which is not the case for historical data.

If you download historical Kinetick data, you cannot create a replay file from it.

The only ways to obtain replay data are

- record it during a live session
- download it from NinjaTrader servers

Why do you think that the tick data from NinjaTrader servers is faulty?
