Thanks for all the help, I tried that also. When I get to from data source, the arrow is there, but no list will populate, that is what made to try the manual entry.

Zero experience with Own Data, but maybe you have wrong Zen Fire symbology.

Zen Fire has no historical data. Some other intermediary service providers like NinjaTrader and now MultiCharts are providing historical data for their clients.

Hi, edi025

Nice to hear from you can connect OwnData2.7+Zen-fire to TradeStation. How to connect? Is there a special step?

For now, i installed OwnData2.7, and TradeStation 8.7.

I have got owndata 2.7 runned, it is picking data from Zen-Fire.

But in TradeStation 8.7, After formatting Symbol to "ZF:ESU0", the TradeStation 8.7 just showed "waiting for data". I don't know if there are other steps need to do. Thanks in advance.
