@bnichols: Hey, that's ok.

@Zondor, I get a message saying that I need to "establish a connection that supports the instrument(s)".

I'm confused because I am already connected.

no data error

You are connected to a data feed that does not support the instrument that you are trying to get data for.

It's a good idea to learn the basics of using Ninjatrader before trying to trade with it.

This is a great thread..... very entertaining.

As you likely know different feed vendors require different permissions for price data vendors. It may be you haven't subscribed to the instrument for which you want data--so verify that and decide if you want to pay the fee.

But if it seems you are subscribed and you are getting this error then check with your feed provider, and don't trust NT as far as you can throw it (have at least one laptop languishing in the bushes after trying to deal with NT)

I'm beginning to suspect NT cannot handle historical tick data no matter what the provider and very likely NT will not show tick charts unless you've had tick charts up in the past and have saved the live data (i.e., "Tools > Options > Data > Save chart data as historical"check box ticked. While you're at it might as well turn on " "Tools > Options > Data > Record for market replay").

In other words if NT has not saved downloaded tick data in the past there is a good chance it cannot retrieve it either, so be prepared to capture it while NT is up, and go to any length to import tick data converted from other sources if your installation is down for any length of time or work with tick data gaps. Or not

Look forward to being corrected about this. It is more likely some NT/data feed combo I have not tried does download historical tick data, which might imply more programming effort in place for those feeds than the ones I use. On that topic, just turned IQFeed on again but keep it off when trading spot Forex, since IQFeed position doesn't match broker position often enough.

@bnichols: Just reading this stuff, I hope you do not mind if I have some objections.

NinjaTrader can easily store historical tick data, and you do not need to record it life. Just download them via the download manager or open a tick chart and you will have your chart backfilled automatically - UNLESS your data provider does not support historical tick data.

It is only a question of the data provider. For example, if you use Interactive Brokers, then you cannot download historical tick data, because they don't offer it. But it has nothing to do with NinjaTrader.

What NinjaTrader cannot store is synchronized data for bid and ask. But this does not apply to trade data.

@gloricle: The problems that you have experienced are rather unusual and point to several user errors. My recommendation would be start from scratch. Also take the habit of never ever copying files around inside the NinjaTrader folder as you probably did with MetaTrader. Please proceed as follows

(1) Write down your license key somewhere.

(2) Rename the folder Documents -> NinjaTrader 7 to Documents -> NinjaTrader Old. Renaming means that you will not lose any information, but you can reverse your decision.

(3) Start NinjaTrader. NinjaTrader will now recreate a clean directory Documents -> NinjaTrader 7. You will be asked to enter your license key.

You should now be fine. If you want to add any indicators, please import them via File -> Utilities -> Import NinjaScript. If you want to remove an indicator, you can simply delete it from the list under Tools -> Edit NinjaScript -> Indicator . If you want to remove an assembly you must use File -> Utilities -> Remove NinjaScript Assembly.

In case that you cannot connect to an instrument or load historical data as expected, there can be two reasons

-> no or false symbol map in the instrument manager
-> your data provider does not support the instrument or you have not subscribed for live data for that instrument

Thanks again @Fat Tails--as usual I bow to your authority. Overall I try to be cautious when making statements about NT because of my love/hate relationship with it--as you know I'm one who is continuously guilty of operator error when using it, e.g. lately writing and compiling an indicator with a misplaced class (one more misstep at that point and it gets stuck in NT's craw until one blows away NinjaTrader.Custom.dll and NinjaTrader.Custom.xml and restarts NT). I really do not like rebuilding my tools

In other ways I suppose it's a matter of convenience. While it may be true IB doesn't provide what is rigorously defined as tick data I find the sampled stuff good enough for constructing spot Forex "tick" charts and IB does provide historical bid, ask and trade samples. I've never been able to coerce NT to retrieve it unfortunately, whereas MC has no issues.

@pepbosch,

You have to delete the PriceActionSwingProCCIanaKVO indicator. If this is not possible via the NT delete function, then delete it directly fom the indicator folder and restart NT. This should work. Good luck.

Thank you.
I had to delete manually from the indicators folder. But I still get errors. And now it tells me the errors are in the indicator that I deleted...and it does not appear in the indicators folder.
any clue?

thanks

Delete all your PriceActionSwing indicators manually and restart. Hope this solves the issue.
