NinjaTrader Advisory Notice – CQG & Continuum Users Only HG and SI price format changes

On August 9, 2014 CQG & Continuum internally updated their price format for the HG and SI instruments which require an update to the instrument definitions

  1. If you downloaded NinjaTrader 7.0.1000.25 on or before August 13, 2014 you are using an instrument database which holds the old instrument definitions for these instruments. If you had installed that release please uninstall it at this time using the directions below. Once uninstalled, you need to download and install the updated NinjaTrader release using the instructions below.
  2. If you did not upgrade your NinjaTrader installation to the current release previously, we do suggest that you update at this time.
  3. Please note that the NinjaTrader Historical Data servers will still record at the incorrect price format until our August 15, 2014 maintenance window where we will correct the issue and restore the correct data.
