Smile CHARTS NO UPDATING - After trying everything

Are Ninjatrader charts supposed to update when only connected to a paid data source like Barchart.com?

I've been running Ninjatrader for a few weeks checking it out and I've never seen a chart update with new data. I have to update all historical data to see the latest market which is on a 10 min delay for forex on my basic pad data plan with Barchart.com. The control center shows my instrument is getting new ticks, $EURUSD. Charts do update when connected to the simulated data feed. I only have the stock indicators and am not using any of those.

I've taken time over the last weeks to comb through all forums that have to do with charts not updating and none of those solutions work.

How to reproduce this: It always does this.

Things I've tried with no success:

* Close connection, reconnect, create a new chart.

* Close connection, Repair DB, reconnect, create a new chart.

* Close connection, Reset Instruments, reconnect, create a new chart.

* Do all of the above, except close Ninjatrader and reopen after closing connection.

HERE ARE MY DETAILS:

Ninja Trader 64-bit 7.0.1000.7
SimulationOnly

Instrument: $EURUSD(1 Min)
OS: XP 64 bit

Datefeed only: Barchart.com

End date: 11/16/2011 (today)
Session template: Default 24/7
Display update interval(sec): 0.1
Filter bad ticks: OFF

Hi eric,

Welcome to the NinjaTrader forums. Thanks for posting here. What you are seeing is expected. Unfortunately the delayed streaming service with BarChart is not supported in NinjaTrader. This is not a standard streaming feed but is a snapshot of data every 30 seconds that does not include last updates.

Default Problem solved!

I've just added the Forex package, reconnected and I can see the chart reacting to the ticks now.

Futures, foreign currency and options trading contains substantial risk and is not for every investor. An investor could potentially lose all or more than the initial investment.

CFTC Rules 4.41 - Hypothetical or Simulated performance results have certain limitations, unlike an actual performance record, simulated results do not represent actual trading.

Simulated trading programs in general are also subject to the fact that they are designed with the benefit of hindsight.
