Welcome to

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

Ninja Trader Tick Charts Change

As the title says the tick charts for NT7 with Continuum and Rithmic data have completely changed since last week. I trade the 512 tick chart on the ES and over the last two days the amount of bars has went from typically over 400 bars a day to around 150 bars a day yet the overall volume for each bar has more than doubled. So basically it appears that contracts traded is roughly normal but the volume is stuffed into less than half the amount of usual bars. So for the 512 tick which has an average of around 1500 contracts per bar, now the same 512 tick bar has closer to 4000 contracts. Its affecting all tick charts regardless of size.There is an open thread in the NT forum. I had a link to it but it wont let me post links because of low post count. The thread is called "what happened to the tick data"

NT support has been of no assistance and either they dont know whats going on or dont want to say. It appears that its got something to do with the data providers since support says that Rithmic data is unaffected. One poster says that its got something to do with the CME switch over to a new way of sending the data to the data providers. This is a link to the CME site which talks about the change over.

The price action is completely different and it doesnt even feel like the same market. I moved down to a 175 tick chart to get the same rough average of volume per bar as i was getting before but its still not close to the same. Does anyone have any idea what is going on? Maybe someone knows something and is willing to share.

2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
