Proceeding as you suggest Harry does not work in my case using Zen-Fire.
Here is what i do:
Step 1: First connect to Kinetick EOD and downdload daily data (only need to load the last day)
Step 2: Export the Day item of each instrument in your Ninja DB (current contract only) to Excel
Step 3: Disconnect.
Step 4: Connect to your data provider (whatever mode)
Step 5: Open a daily chart with Yesterday's activity and today's most recent activity
Step 6: Iterate though the list of your instruments to update the chart
Step 7: Edit the most recent Row by comparing the OHLC in Excel vs the OHLC in Ninja DB
It takes about 5 minutes to do in my case. A pain in the ass but doable.
That is only true, if you trade a single instrument. If you toggle between different instruments, you need to enter the UserDefinedValues each time. Or do you think that ES values will work for TF?
With the workaround that I have described above, the indicator will take the correct values from the historical data base, once these values have been loaded. And you can freely toggle between 10 or 20 instruments.
AS i wrote it's not exactly what occurs. It works as long as Kinetick is the only provider as soon as you add your provider into the equation the daily datas in the case of Zen-Fire are used. The only way to avoid it is to edit the DB manually. At first, i thought leaving Kinetick connected would prevent this but alas it's not the case.
First erase yesterday's false daily values.
Then connect to Kinetick EOD and load correct daily data. Disconnect.
Now connect to Zenfire. The correct data from Kinetick will not be overwritten, Zenfire will only add a false value for today. This value is not used by the pivots indicator.
Tomorrow repeat the procedure, start erasing the false values by reloading chart data from Kinetick for a daily chart with a lookback period of 5 days.
Where is the problem?
The following user says Thank You to Fat Tails for this post:
(a) Live-Mode -> You can first-connect to Kinetick and second connect to your broker.
(b) RTH pivots -> You can use pivots in CalculateFromIntradayData mode. The values will be only slightly off as the indicator uses the RTH close instead of the settlement.
(c) ETH pivots -> You can use pivots in CalculateFromIntradayData mode. The indicator will use the ETH close instead of the settlement. For bonds and commodities this will not work, but you should use RTH anyhow. For FOREX the ETH close is fine, which is the most frequent application of ETH pivots. For CME traded index futures there won't be a problem either.
Everything is fine, if you adjust.
