Oh man how I hate that particular point
But didn't find a turnaround yet...

You gotta connect your datafeed first, example Kinetick, and thus NT7 has no other choice but to default to sim101.
Then, when you connect your broker's account next -> well NT7 doesn't switch automatically to your live account

Of course, you can always connect your broker first, and NT7 would default to your live account... but that sequence is of no real use.

Try in deleting the sim account in Ninja database, NinjaTrader.sdf (it's a SQLCe database), the table's name is nt_account. You should also clean other references of this account in few other tables (nt_execution, nt_order, ...).

Sam, any detailed guidelines you could share on how to do that?

Thanks

Someting like this, in Python for the example:
 
Code
                            
import adodbapi


file 
"C:\\Users\\sam\\Documents\\NinjaTrader 7\\db\\NinjaTrader.sdf"
connstr 'Provider=Microsoft.SQLSERVER.CE.OLEDB.3.5; Data Source=%s;' %file
conn 
adodbapi.connect(connstr)
cur conn.cursor()
sql "select id from nt_account where name='Sim101'"
cur.execute(sql)
result cur.fetchall()
account item[0]
sql1 "delete from nt_execution where account='" account) + "'"
sql2 "delete from nt_order where account='" account) + "'"
cur.execute(sql1)
cur.execute(sql2)
result cur.fetchall()
cur.close()
conn.close() 
BUT, I won't be surprised if this Sim101 were also hard-coded in NinjaTrader .exe and some of its .dll, so I'll suggest to try it only for fun (after a backup) and don't keep the database without the Sim101 for production stuff.

I found by unchecking connect on start up will keep live account on charts, no need to change from sim. Also make sure live account named first alphabet order, since ninja fetch account by alphabet order first

Thank you! Just found a basic editor (SDFviewer) and deleted all of the accounts that have built up over the last 5 years
