Why don't you simply connect NinjaTrader to TWS (Interactive Brokers), download the data and then display it ?

Chart for VIX 07-11 attached below.

Edit: Was not capable so far to display the Vix futures in MergeBackadjusted mode. NinjaTrader cut off the 2 weeks of data, probably confused the front months,,,,,

The problem is that i need all historical data for the future and IB doesn't provide historical data for a long time.

Then you should check the data feeds such as DTN/IQ or eSignal. They should have it.

Do you require daily or intraday data?
