    Just to be clear, this is not strange at all.

    If you download Historical data you can backtest your strategy in the Strategy Analyzer without having an active data feed connection.

    But Historical data is not the same as Market Replay data.

    If you download Market Replay data, then you must connect to Market Replay to actually use that data.

    Market Replay data, which admittedly is of an historical nature, but it is absolutely not the same as Historical data.

    Very important, don't confuse NinjaTrader's use of these two terms.
    The two types of data are different, downloaded differently, stored different, etc.

    Market Replay Data
    Downloaded explicitly only
    Saved to folder db\data
    Requires connection to Market Replay to access
    Accessed only via running a chart
    Supports chart trading via manual trading and strategies
    Ignored by Strategy Analyzer, even when connected to Market Reply

    Historical Data
    Downloaded implicitly or explicitly
    Saved to folder db\(day|minute|tick)
    Requires no connection to access
    Accessed via running a chart, but chart stays static
    Used by a chart to build historical candlesticks
    Not usable directly or indirectly for manual trading on a chart
    Accessed via running Strategy Analyzer
    Used by Strategy Analyzer for backtesting
    Not usable directly or indirectly for running a strategy on a chart

    Lol, sorry, spent all the time composing an answer and you figured it out while I was typing ...

    Good to hear you got it solved.

    Are you connected to a data feed?

    The "$" toolbar button is always greyed out until you are connected
    to a live brokerage or market data vendor. You can also run a strategy
    using the Market Replay or Simulated Data Feed connection.

    The point is, until you have a green connection showing in the lower
    left of your Control Center
    ,
    1. The "$" toolbar button is greyed out
    2. Right click menu option "Strategies..." is greyed out.
    The tooltip mesage "Strategy- Disabled if Chart Trader is enabled" is the
    normal and expected help message displayed by NinjaTrader -- when
    the "$" button is greyed out
    .

    When the "$" button is available the tooltip message changes to "Strategies".

    [Tooltip messages are just helpful little tidbits of text that are displayed
    briefly when you hover over the toolbar button. Don't be confused, the
    only purpose is to show a brief reminder of the button's purpose.]

    Are you connected but still having issues?

    do you mean no data on it (blank window) : i dont know how to do that
    or nothing as in drawings and tags: i opened a brand new chart with only data

    btw when i open the log it writes "message : automated trading disabled" and "category; default"

    I only meant with no indicators.... which it sounds like you have done... so it's still an issue.

    You're probably going to need to send the log and trace file to NT support.

    This is a full NT?... like not stripped down "NT Direct" or whatever it is called?

    Oh yeah - has it ever worked before?

    What happens if you try the default strategies - SampleMACrossover - same error?
