I'm using CMIpivotsDaily_V6

After the market closes at 4:15pm EST, I shut down ninja and do some market replay. Then around 6pm EST I restart ninja with live data. I leave ninja running overnight with live data (no strategies running) ... When I get up around 5am EST and go to my computer I look at ninja and I get this message "insufficient data to calculate pivots, please increase the lookback period"

I try disconnecting ninja and reconnecting it to ninja live data but the message doesn't go away. I end up having to shut ninja down and restart ninja.

It's not a huge deal but if someone knows why this happens and can show me how to fix it so I don't have to shut down ninja every morning, that would be great.

Change the number of days for your chart.
Right click on chart:

Change days back to a larger number until you get enough data.

Thanks for the reply.

It's already got plenty of days to work with. The pivots are fine when I go to bed. They only display that message when I get back to my computer in the morning. I think it has something to do with ninja running from one day to the next but I'm not sure.

Does anyone else leave ninja running overnight with CMIpivots running?
