Question 002

When we define a session template does it matter if we define the End time the same as the Start time for the next day ?

Ex.

Should we use this format (see red values):

Monday Start time 06:00PM Tuesday End time 09:30AM
Tuesday Start time 09:30AM Tuesday End time 04:15PM

Or this format :

Monday Start time 06:00PM Tuesday End time 09:29AM
Tuesday Start time 09:30AM Tuesday End time 04:15PM

If you use the second option the data between 09:29 and 09:30 will not be displayed, as the last bar of the prior session closes at 9:29:00. The first bar of the next session only starts at 09:30:00, so you have created an artificial gap.

Therefore only the first option is correct.

Does anybody know if there is a difference between NT65 and NT7 in terms of quantity of intraday data we can retrieve from Ninja's servers if we use Zen-Fire as our main data provider ?

Is it possible that NT65 imposes some limitation to the quantity of data we can retrieve as opposed to NT7 considering Zen-Fire as being the data provider ?

trendisyourfriend,

NT7 Beta 23 allows you to access the newer high quality ZenFire data feed. It has proven to greatly superior to the old feed in my opinion. This feed is not available in NT6.5. I tried to access it and could not.

I recommend adding the new feed connection in NT7 Beta23. However, Don't delete the old connection. This allows you access to either ZenFire server.

One users opinion,

RJay

...if you display several data series on a chart, ...

When we use multiple data series on the same chart, is there a quick way to make one invisible ?

The main difference between NT6.5 and NT7.0 is the format of the database. NT 7.0 allows you to access the data for each single contract. For example, if you trade CL 12-10, I can easily copy the minute data file from my data base

-> Own Documents -> NinjaTrader 7 -> db -> minute -> CL 12-10

and send it to you. For NT 6.5 it was not possible to just to copy bits and pieces of the data base or edit them to remove spikes or otherwise change data. So in NT 6.5 it was only one huge data bnase full of crap without any options to correct false data.

So in the end it is not important how much data you download, you can easily add data by asking one of your buddies.

You can select to display the second data series on the same panel as the first data series. Then just set your candles and candle outlines to transparent, and for sure it will be invisible.

I have used this for the dValueArea indicator. I wanted to use it on a 30 min chart, but with the higher resolution of a 1 min chart. So all I needed to do:

First dataseries: ES 30 min
Second dataseries: ES 1 min (same panel, transparent)

Then apply dValueArea to second data series and it shows the high resolution you want!

That's interesting Fat and something that was badly missing in NT65. What version of dValueArea are you using ? Can you post the link as there seems to have multiple instances of it floating around ? Are you using this version here: http://tinyurl.com/dValueArea

trendisyourfriend,

Connections created prior to NT7 Beta 23, by default, connects to the old ZenFire server.

After upgrading to NT7 Beta23, Create a new connection with a different connection title with the same username and password as the old connection.

NT will route new connection to the new ZenFire Servers.

Rjay, after upgrading to NT7 Beta23 i did not need to recreate my connection as it was still there. If i read you correctly, even though the connection i had defined was preserved during the update procedure, i still need to create a new one with a different title, is this correct ? Curious we need to do this, shouldn't the update take care of this automatically ?

How can we check if we are connected to the old Zen-Fire servers vs the new servers ?
