    TradeStation Futures Naming Conventions

    I am trying to connect live data feed for @YM 12-08 from TradeStation without success.
    The symbol in TS is @YMZ08.
    Can anyone assist?
    Thank you
    Dianna
    PS I have no problem with stocks or currency pairs.

      Hello Ben,
      Thank you for your response.
      For some reason I just can't connect. The Trade Station symbol is @YMZ08.D
      I have tried following combinations all with and without the @ sign without success.
      YM
      YMZ08
      YM|12-08
      YM|Z08
      YM|Z08.D
      any ideas? Thank you for helping.
      Dianna

        How about trying with the @YM symbol?

          Hello Ben,
          Tried all the combinations with the @sign and it will not budge.
          Thank you,

            Last try:

            Chart the "YMZ08" symbol, and in the YM instrument in the Instrument Manager, set the symbol map for "External" to "YM". Then restart NT and TS.

              Hello Ray,
              Thank you for answering my question, I have finally got it working based on your suggestion.
              I have one more question.
              I have downloaded 1 minute historical data from TradeStation, and successfully imported into NT. The data displays in chart, but it will not replay. Can the historical data be used for replay, if not can it be converted or otherwise installed?
              Thank you in advance
              Dianna

                Unfortunately, this data cannot be used for replay purposes. You can only replay data, which you recorded real-time in NinjaTrader. More information can be found at the link below.
