Turn off global sim at start up in NT

Alright here is a good one. Slept in today. Logged in and thought that looks like a buy. Bot 1.2906. Rooted hard. Sold 1.2934. Got coffee with a nice lead on.

REALIZED THAT I NEVER SWITCHED OFF GLOBAL SIM!

Feels just like I lost $840 bucks.

I never SIM. I never backtest.

Here is the question:

How do I shut permanently shut off global sim on log in and set my OE machine to be live account on log in?

Dang it. It will be funny by noon, but right now I'm a huge idiot.

Uncheck global simulation mode in File, and uncheck always start in simulation in Tools/options/simulator

Just a remark--always been a red flag for me when NT apparently starts changing settings on its own or Options values that I set don't persist. Ruling out hallucinations due to sudden onset insanity first the first seems correlated with DB corruption and the second (in the days I ran a virus checker on the trading computer) when a virus checker once gave itself access to NT's DB folder after an auto-update .

Delete the Ninja shortcut and create some AutoIt wrapper which restores your setting before connect. I love automating stuffs like these.

Here is a simple use-case. I've two data folders for Ninja - one with tick, other without. Here is what I did to link the folder before launching the NT.

This one is regular launch

 
Code
#cs ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Author: TraderSU
#ce ----------------------------------------------------------------------------

If ProcessExists("NinjaTrader.exe") Then
    MsgBox(0, "Warning", "NinjaTrader is already running.")
Else
	FileCreateNTFSLink(@MyDocumentsDir & "\NinjaTrader 7 - N1", @MyDocumentsDir & "\NinjaTrader 7", 1)
	Sleep(200)
	Run("C:\Program Files (x86)\NinjaTrader 7\bin64\NinjaTrader.exe")
EndIf

This one is for tick analysis

How to make sure you are running in live mode!

I talked with Ninja about this. They said to set up the connection with the "Connect on startup" box checked. This didn't help at all. The surest way I have found is to set up my live feed is with that box unchecked. Once I open my Ninja platform and all the workspaces, I then connect to my live account. This assures that any DOM or chart trader window that I open will open in live mode.

You can also disconnect and then reconnect to reset everything to live mode.

It is a pain, but Ninja always is.
