How to build a tick data base with 1 year of data


tdaman View Post
My frustration with Kinetick is that I can't seem to load any more than 20 days of historical tick data. This may be a reason for the many loading errors in NT. I hope Kinetick will eventually provide more tick data so I can run my fibonacci indicators with confidence.

NinjaTrader stores tick data locally. So if Kinetick data offers 20 days of tick data, you need to connect once every 20 days to collect the data. Your tick data base will grow and grow.

There is an elegant way to download tickdata for all your instruments at once. Select -> Tools -> Historical Data Manager -> Download, and then highlight the Default folder in the left window. Now select your download period and whether you want to download tick, minute or daily data. See screenshot below.

Press the download button. Get yourself a nice cup of fresh coffee. When you come back, historical data for all your instruments in the default folder should be updated.

This way you can easily build up a data base with months or years of tick data. The tick data takes lots of space, so you should regularly backup your data base. You can do this automatically or manually.

NT Backtest101 NG 10-10

I'm having a problem with NT Backtest101 data matching up with my Print displays on the output screen in strategy Analyzer. Do I have to individually load the backtest101 data myself. I thought if I add an instrument,
e.g., NG 10-10, the NT server will get it for me but I'm finding the data output on the Trade Screen does not
correspond with my Print displays on the output screen. Do I have to load this data down from the server
some way? Before it was matching, but it gone haywire. Any idea guys?

Thanks for your support.

Caught in the middle between a bit of code and a hard place.

Fat, what's your routine when it's time to rollover a contract ?

(1) Select rollover date, enter rollover date via instrument manager (for the financials the default settings are ok, but for energies, metals, agriculturals and softs I look at volume crossover). All instrument settings remain at Global Configuration, which is MergeBackAdjusted.

(2) On rollover day, load daily and intraday data for all instruments via Historical Data Manager (Download, 1 week period as per default)

(3) Open an intraday chart for the new contract month.

(4) Check, whether thee offset has been correctly calculated and written to the instrument master data.

(5) Send a support note to NinjaTrader, because the data is not correctly displayed on my charts that use several sessions per day.

NT 7.0 , will it behave?

Fat Tails,

You are one sharp dude! You talked about Historical Data Manager. I looked on my NT 6.5. I couldn't find it. So,
now I'm on NT 7.0, and it's faster and in my output window, I'm not getting any of the problems I was experiencing in NT 6.5 were I couldn't find the corresponding "Print" Close[0], etc. with the Strategy Analyzer Entry and Exit Prices. Not having any problem thank to your comments, Fat Tails. My strategy is at 56%. I've gone through 50 strategys and I'm getting to know the indicators. I like to see small losses and big gains. I'm just doing backtesting101, so we'll see when i get to sym testing. Thanks again.

Kinetick

Hello,

I am facing several issues with Zen-Fire data on NinjaTrader (bars are always different from other thaders using the same technology, even if I reload historical data).
Can anyone tell me if Kinetick is reliable on that point?

Thanks a lot.

You would need to specify the issues you are talking about and give some detailed examples. Your question is not clear at all.

Are you using time based intervals or tick or range intervals ? This may explain some of the discrepencies you get.

Hi,

I understand that DTN data and technology powers both IQFeed and Kinetick. IQFeed uses client software that users download. I believe that Kinetick uses special adapter that optimizes connection to NinjaTrader.

Has anyone tested both and found Kinetick to be faster, more reliable or in any way better? (Except that it's cheaper).

Thanks!

There is the flip side to consider -- if you go with the original IQfeed instead of Kinetick, then you can use it to power NinjaTrader, MultiCharts, etc concurrently -- whereas Kinetick would only work inside NT. Of course Kinetick is cheaper, so it depends on your needs.

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)
