Hi, has anyone had a problem where the "refresh historical data" is grayed out when doing a "right click" on a chart to refresh the data ?
i am using Amp/CQG. sometimes it seems to work but lately not. besides it doesnt load historical data when i bring up a chart either.
I am wondering if one of the ports is blocked or occupied. I can use IB as a backup data feed (multi broker) and get my history that way. but i would like it if cqg would cooperate.
i spoke with Amp support and reset/repair DB and reset instruments. i looked at the Instrument/ editor and the values. not sure if the "session templates" is correct or makes a difference.
I spoke to ninja support and he said these server ports and IP need access by cqg. but i am not really sure how to check and see if these are clear.

188.8.131.52 || 27 || 255.255.255.224
i also read that ninjatrader needs port 80 and 8080 to be open.
so i got currports and it shows all the ports. i didnt find 8080 but 80 looks like it is a port used by several progs.
i am using microsft security essentials av and windows firewall as well as malwarebytes.

I have had a similar situation once or twice. Ninja support explained to me that, with AMP/CQG, you get historical data from the NinjaTrader historical server (CQG provides the live data and clears trades.) When I could not refresh historical data, I was not connected to the NT historical servers -- it happened once when they were down, and once when Ninja simply did not connect to them, for whatever reason. (The status bar still showed "Connected - CQG", but the connection did not include connecting to the historical data server. )
There might be a log message something like this: "Unable to connect to NinjaTrader data server ...." Under the "Log" tab on Control Center.)
The solution was simply to disconnect, close NT, and reconnect. (They also suggested restarting the PC, modem and router if that didn't do it.)
I notice you've already been in touch with NT support, so this may not help. However, if you haven't used the "Mail to support" option under "Help," you might try it -- it will send them a copy of your log file also, which can help in debugging.
At least you're not alone.... and the information about history coming from Ninja, not CQG, is important context.
I'm sure you can get this fixed.

When I had this problem here's what NinjaTrader support told me to do. (It worked).
You can reset all of your default instruments by following the steps below.
Disconnect for all data providers
Go to the Control Center -> Tools.
Inside the Options window select the Data tab
Press the Reset Instruments button
Go to (My) Documents -> NinjaTrader 7 -> db
Right click on the folder "cache" and select delete.
Connect to data provider
Try to Reload chart data
Note: Any changes made to original instruments settings will be reset.
Hope it helps.
After all, it's what you learn AFTER you know it all, that counts!
