Welcome to futures.io.

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

Thanks

Comment 2 - there is no missing minute when running this real time. I've never tried running 9:30 as start and end time but the above certainly doesn't stop at 9:29 when using this real time.

here you can see the difference. the bar with time stamp 9:30 is missing

Hi Peter,

I'm a very new trader and I just want to say thanks for everything I've learned from you! You are a great teacher and your software is awesome!

I also have a question I hope you can answer.

I've recently opened an account at with Ninjatrader Brokerage. They use Continuum as the data provider and my connection works fine except I can not seem to place trades with or use Jigsaw D&S to manage live trades. I have to use the NT DOM to place & manage trades. In other words, the Jigsaw D&S doesn't seem to work with my continuum account but it displays the D&S data perfectly.

Is this something I may have set up incorrectly?

Thanks!

Every time NT starts or after a data refresh the account goes to Sim101 and I have to manually change it back to the live trading account.
Is there a way to set and save the default account for the Jigsaw trade settings ?

Try to set the default account under Tools/ Option/ ATI from the Control Center in NT.

I have the default NT account set to my live trading account Uxxxxx.
Still Jigsaw, ChartTrader and indicators always start with the Sim101 account.
On every NT start or data reload I have to change on many charts and indicator settings manually from Sim to Live account.
Guess NT always takes the first account in the alphabet.
My live account starts with Uxxxxxx and the S from Sim101 comes before U ...

There's a couple of common issues:

1 - AT Interface is not enabled.
2 - The Order Column is not switched on - you need the order column on to manage orders, so it won't let you place one without it
3 - You don't have a license to the live trading interface - see here: Licensing FAQ

Setting it in chart trader wont help.

Do you connect to Continuum automatically on starting Ninja? The reason I ask is that the only way we can set the default is if D&S starts up after the connection has been made.

Let me chat with Ian - see how we can do that. I suspect it'll only work if you are connecting automatically.

I don't connect automatically, since I use the NT Multibroker license and connect to different data providers and brokers.
My startup procedure is:
1. Start NT, it loads a empthy default workspace without any charts.
2. Connect to data provider (eSignal or IQFeed)
3. Connect to broker
4. Open my workspace with charts etc.

I just posted the question also in the NT support forum and NinjaTrader_Jason answered me that NT always goes by the alphabet with the accounts :-(

"Always start in simulation" is disabled
It's a NT problem ... hoping for NT 8.1 ;-)
