I have a scanner workspace in Multicharts that I use to download the historical data for all my symbols -- However, I really want to do the same thing in Ninjatrader instead. The ugly brute force method means opening a long term chart for every symbol -- many charts, ugh. Right now, it is 55 symbols w/ 5yr charts (not all complete yet). They are all continuous futures contracts.
Is there a way to do this using the Market Analyzer instead?
I want to make certain that the MA downloads all the missing historical data, say 1 yr. It seems logical, but my usage and understanding of the MA is fairly low. I may not have 1yr of historical data available right now, but at least I can learn how to do it.
Tracking a symbol in Market Analyzer will record the market data, provided you have that option enable in options.
