Welcome to futures.io.

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.

Yes, I had a 17 minutes delay on my first time Wednesday and on my second try a 20 minutes delay.

In my understanding with a CPU having say 56 cores and every core at least 2 times faster than in my 7 years old CPU I expect that more volume could be processed and so either I have no delay at all or a much smaller one, right??

I had a discussion already last year with NT as I reported this problem. Then, I was disappointed but hoped that NT would solve the problem. But in RC1 and RC2 there is still the same problem. And still I am disappointed.
So, I wanted to hear whether buying a new PC could help to solve the problem. And I think now that there is a general limit for NT8 depending on the particular CPU.

My point is that I highly doubt a 20 minute delay is a NinjaTrader problem. Having experience with this, the likely culprit is that your internet connection can't handle the load and you start buffering data at the edge of the network. That's why I suggested disconnecting and reconnecting since that clears out the buffer and restarts the transmission of data.

There was a longer discussion last year. Please ask Brandon.

The intention of this thread was how I could solve my problem.

You still haven't said what charts you are loading, bar types, days loaded, etcetera.

Your profile says your favourite future is FDAX, for which there is bugger all data involved as a rule, even an old modem connection could handle it.

At the moment your problem will remain a puzzle, as there is insufficient information for us to be able to help you, we don't know what charts, datafeed, internet connection, any numbers from the Task Manager regarding the Ninjatrader process, etcetera.

Also is your internet connection reliable in general use? For example, run a simple Speedtest.net by Ookla - The Global Broadband Speed Test or equivalent, you want to see a solid low Ping number and almost any amount of up/download is enough these days. I agree with Ray that at this stage it sounds like unreliable internet, unless you are downloading a weirdly large amount of historical data, but we really don't yet have enough information to diagnose the patient.

Cheers

Travel Well

I will try to use another PC. I have not much time for trading and want to concentrate on this.

Thank you to all contributors!
