Weird price spikes in PFGBest feed

Hi - getting weird spikes in the price feed (see pic), using NT 6.5 and PFGBests's PFGAPI connector, tried reinstalling both, still getting the spikes, PFG says they can't duplicate it, any ideas?

Only happens live, historical data looks ok, just started after starting up NT this Sunday, and it happens on two different computers (one XP, one Win7)...

Thanks
Jay

I would suggest updating to the latest NinjaTrader version, since you're running 6.5 and 7.0 is out of beta.

NinjaTrader made some updates to the PFGBest feed with these newer versions since 6.5 - perhaps this will solve your problems. For example, according to their changelog ( Release Notes ):

PFG adapter
PFG adapter could throw off NT on sending malformed data. There are now are more detailed consistency checks in place.

PFG adapter
Updated PFG API to resolve issues on server reset.

Might be worth checking out because these fixed errors could be related to the problem you experience.

Good luck!

Thanks for your reply, Jura - I would like to upgrade except that my market replay data from
6.5 (abt 18 mos. worth) is not importable into NT 7...and the problem just started this week,
after that many months of working fine...

That is indeed weird, because these bugfixes are quite what older. You can't run NT6.5 and NT7.0 at the same time, but they can be installed on the same pc. Would that be somewhat of an solution for you? Perhaps you can then save the new Market Replay data in NT7.0, while still using NT6.5 after hours for replaying and testing.

Unfortunately I don't think the PFG adaptor for NT 6.5 can be installed on the same system as the NT 7 one...from NinjaTrader stock, futures and forex charting software and online trading platform. PFG Connection Guide., "You cannot have different PFGBEST.com API clients installed"

I'm having the same weird experience even on NT7.0.1000.5 as at the time of this post. I never had it last week; can't understand what's happening to their feed.

Thanks for the reply Lolu, glad it's not just me. I posted on the Ninjatrader support forum, they verified it,
and it seems to me to be specific to EURUSD, although I only tested GBPJPY as an alternative. I emailed PFGBest and they have not yet responded as of 10pm EST

When I told NT I had this problem a while back they said I was the only customer they had that reported this.

When I posted it on futures.io (formerly BMT) the NT Prez got his feelings hurt and said I had taken their statement out of context and was just bad mouthing them.

So if they admit it's a problem and they haven't blamed it on you yet... count yourself lucky.

Now I'm waiting for NT to flame me over this post.

I'm just a simple man trading a simple plan.

Mike

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
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.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)
Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.

While I have never used NT, I seem to only hear more and more negative views regarding a variety of issue with it. That sucks about the support. I hate when they act like you are the only one with the issue. Lots of brokers are bad for that too (not all though, thankfully.)
