Welcome to

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.

You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

Thanks: 6 given, 4 received data provider - reviews please?

Hi - does anyone have recent experience they can share of downloading and using historical Market Replay data for Ninja Trader from I only need a few spot FX pairs and a couple of indices for a few months back, but even for that, NT's native 'one indice and one day at a time' Market Replay download is a real pain.

I ask here because the few reviews I can find elsewhere are mostly so aggressive they read like they were written by competitors of the company. Some even say stuff like 'they steal your trading strategy'. Yeah, sure - good luck to anybody stealing mine :-)

Thanks, Max

I have used this company for two years. The first year was mainly good experience.

However, the second year (still current) has been iffy and I have pretty much given up due to errors and 'help' which is inconsistent with what I have been told before and doesn't make much sense. When downloading data, I was also getting strange errors. For example when downloading a batch of data the run aborts without errors but then downloading individual days does seem to work.

Another point, is that even if you have a full paid subscription, if you download too much data, they block your account!!! I had to then email them to get it re-enabled.

I frankly don't have much time to mess around so I as I mentioned, I have pretty much given up.
