Is this only for NT8 or includes NT7 as well?

I had been having gaps on my charts NT7 these days and always have to do a reload everytime I start NT in the morning

What data provider are you on ?

Is the gap during the day build up or is the garp for a period where your machine as not running NT ?

continuum, it happens in the morning when i start up NT for a new day.

does not happen for all instruments all the time - almost sporadic - so i thought probably its a platform issue.

end up always doing a reload each morning

Do you have a lot of different instruments open ?

Some (dataprovider) platforms do have a limitation on how many history you can pull in a certain amount of time
this depends on peak and non-peak period

Do you see something in the log file ?

I had been having gaps on my charts NT7 these days and always have to do a reload everytime I start NT in the morning

I have seen this on the time-based charts (5 min ETH, etc.) that I recently started using. I used this setting for a couple of years with only tick and/or volume charts, and never had an issue. (Only can speak of NT7 so far.)

There is another downside of this setting, and that is a slight performance hit, since the data has to written out to disk. This might be an issue if you have a lot of charts, or if the market is moving very rapidly, and could put you behind the real market price. (This has not been a problem for me, but it could be, depending on how hard NT has to work with your chart configuration, and on your hardware.)

I started using it because it's a requirement for the Gomi volume profile.

I don't know if this missing data issue is a recent development, since I only recently started looking at ETH time-based charts (they would start at midnight, skipping past the previous day's evening hours.) I never have had a problem with tick or volume charts. I've dropped the minute-based charts and gone back to only volume charts, and don't see it any more.

Just for whatever this may be worth.... Hope this either matches up with your issues, or adds something to the discussion.

Bob.

Update: edited a little, hopefully for clarity.

@jonc

I simply restated the official response from Ninjatrader in response to my forum post about NT8.

What they told me did not specifically apply to NT7.

You should ask Ninjatrader about your problem. Information posted here, although well intentioned, is not authoritative.

Ninjatrader must be notified to be able to investigate and correct problems that might exist on their end. State your questions in a post on the Ninjatrader forum, they will respond.

Performance tip:

If one indicator on a chart needs tick replay but several others don't, add a second dataseries without tick replay, make it invisible, and apply the other indicators to that series.

Speeds up loading significantly.
