NinjaTrader/Kinetick connection stability fix


For NinjaTrader users who may be having connection issues with Kinetick (Kinetick - Streaming real time quotes and historical market data) this fix should solve the problem:

1.NinjaTrader™ must be installed
2.Start NinjaTrader™
3.From the Control Center window, select the menu "Tools > Account Connections…"
4.In the Account Connection Set Up window, press the "Add…" button
5.The Connection Wizard will appear. Press the "Next >" button.
6.As per the image below ◦Connection name: Create a name to identify your connection
◦Provider: Select "IQFeed" from the list (Welcome to DTN IQFeed! - Fast, Reliable, Affordable. Market Data and API's.) Name the connection IQFeed.
(Yes, I guess you could name it Kinetick--but remove or rename the old Kinetick connection.)

◦Backup data feed connection: Select your backup datafeed or leave as "<None>"
◦Connect on startup: Enable if you want NinjaTrader™ to automatically establish a connection on startup
7.Press the "Next>" button
8 ENTER YOUR KINETICK ACCOUNT USER NAME AND PASSWORD

b.Enable "Use back adjusted data" if you will be working with continuous futures contracts and want the historical data to be back adjusted
9.Press the "Next >" button followed by the "Finish" button to complete configuring your IQFeed account.
10.To connect to your account, go to the NinjaTrader™ Control Center window, select the menu "File > Connect" and select your account.

SUBSEQUENTLY CONNECT TO "IQFEED" (which is now actually Kinetick)

The informal explanation I got is "[that] it involves the API technology used to connect to Kinetick versus IQ Feed. Improvements to the APIs across the board are planned for the next major release of NinjaTrader."

I HAVE PERSONALLY IMPLEMENTED THESE STEPS--BUT NO GUARANTEES. YOUR RISK--NOT MINE. I AM USING NINJATRADER 7.0.1000.22 MULTI-BROKER LIVE.

NinjaTrader/Kinetick connection stability fix

Initially I thought so too, and downloaded and installed the IQFeed client.
Now I'm not certain that is was necessary because IQFeed is included in the
NinjaTrader Connection Setup. This is academic regardless.

What sort of ticks me off is that I had to find about this by accident.
If a software provider has a problem let us know. Most of us will understand.

I have been a programmer for over forty-five years. I'm absolutely amazed
at the progress. I started on an IBM 1620.

BTW, NT will not be thrilled with my original post.

Thanks for the reply.
