Can you confirm that you are using IQFeed? We did find an issue with that and will be resolved in a minor update being published shortly, 8.0.6.1.



Yes IQFEED.


I also can't get spot gold XAUUSD to download any data with 8.0.6.0 and IQFEED.

It is an axiomatic fact that while you meditate you are speaking with your own spirit. In that state of mind you put certain questions to your spirit and the spirit answers: the light breaks forth and the reality is revealed.

Thanks. No known issue with XAUUSD, works for us. Please contact our support desk for direct help on that issue.

Can anyone else reproduce this....please....


Found this this morning. NT support says they can't reproduce it. Happens for me every time. You have to look at the chart close to confirm you are actually on the instrument you think you are because for me, with some instruments, at first glance it looks like a good chart..... but upon closer inspection it is all messed up...

Easiest to explain in a quick video...Please take a look, try and reproduce and post your findings in this thread if you would be so kind....

...but briefly linked Market Analyzer and chart ...set an Alert on the chart on some instrument ....click another instrument in MA.... chart tells you Alert will be removed or transferred to the other instrument (which makes zero sense) so I hit the Cancel button. Then duplicate the chart in a new tab and the chart that comes up is some kind of a combination of the duplicated chart and the instrument click on in the linked Market Analyzer......



@NinjaTrader can anyone reproduce this? (Edit: they just confirmed they CAN reproduce this...)

Hi Ron, you are pushing NT a lot harder than I am. I am just a lowly chart trader. Are you going to attend Rays AMA webinar thru FIO???? I think you should. Ray probably knows of your issues. Maybe you can ask for a private conversation with him. It seems that your inputs are very valuable and they need to assign someone to you.

Good Luck!
Bob

Charts Won't Load When Downloading Historical Data

When downloading historical data through tools --> historical data charts refuse to load. 8.0.6.1. Reported problem previously but as usual isn't resolved although I believe NinjaTrader said they had. I appreciate there will be bugs in new software but this is just basic functionality and NinjaTrader 8 is no longer new. I can see why NinjaTrader has a no refund policy.

Try this please....
  1. Disconnect from data
  2. repair DB Tools/Database Mangement/at bottom
  3. close NT8
  4. Delete _Workspaces.xml file in Doc/Ninjatrader 8/workspaces
  5. remove any workspaces you have in doc/NinjaTrader 8/workspaces to a safe place
  6. start NT8
  7. Now try to Download data

Chances are high your current workspace(s) has gone bad.... You most likely will have to rebuild any workspaces you want and it's best to delete the old ones and start fresh.

I just cancelled my stop in NT8 and placed OCO which are server side in the iPhone app. NT8 connection guide says these orders won't show up in NT8 until I disconnect and reconnect but I did and they still don't show up in NT8...

NT8 connection guide.... Gain Connection Guide | NinjaTrader

@NinjaTrader please look into this.....

The text I'm referring to....

Quoting 
Disclaimer
Order submission, modifications, and cancellation that occur outside of the NinjaTrader application will not display in NinjaTrader until you disconnect and reconnect.
DAY order expire at 5pm EST and could still show as working until you disconnect and reconnect
Chart data is driven from the current bid price.
OCO orders are locally simulated on your PC. This means that NinjaTrader MUST be connected to your broker in order for the OCO capabilities to function. If you are disconnected and one of the OCO orders are filled, the other WILL NOT be cancelled.
Beta Disclaimer
Historical data is currently in beta and may not match bar values from NinjaTrader 7. Historical data is subject to change.
