    Just downloaded NT8 where can I get some historical forex data?

    Looking to view around 5 years of historical forex data for USDCHF where can I get this information to load into Ninja?

    Thx

    You would need to connect to a data provider that supplied the historical data you desire from their servers, or you would need to import the data into NinjaTrader from another source. Who are you connected to? This is displayed in green on lower left corner of the Control Center window.

    Additionally, data is typically available for more or less time historically depending on the root data type - day, minute, or tick. (For a chart) what interval is selected? For example, 5 minute, 1 day, 2000 volume, 4 Renko, etc.

      Hi, I am not connected to a provider as I don't have a live account with ninjatrader, I have found that most providers data does not go back into history for my required time frame, which let's just say is tick data and/or 30 minute data at the maximum.

      I tried importing the data using a software called tickstory, but I am getting a format error in the log, trying to avoid headache I am seeking other easier alternatives where I can source the data.

        Below I have provided a link to our site where you can request a free demo for futures and/or forex data.

        http://ninjatrader.com/FreeLiveData

        The FXCM data feed uses NinjaTrader's historical data feeds by default which provides this amount of historical data based on type:
        • Tick data: 1 year is maintained
        • Minute data: virtually never deleted, forex goes back to late 2008
        • Daily data: virtually never deleted, goes back to 2009 (forex back very far but varies per instrument)
        Beyond the limitation of the historical data feed, your chart controls how much data appears with it's "Days to load" property. This can be adjusted when configuring a new chart, or can be edited on an existing chart by right-clicking on your chart > Data series > Change 'days to load' as you desire > OK. Visit the link below to learn more about charting:

        https://ninjatrader.com/support/help...price_data.htm

        Importing historical data needs to be in a very specific format to work. The help guide link below will provide all the details you need to import historical data manually:

              Hey, I am not associated with a supplier as I don't have a live record with ninjatrader, I have discovered that most suppliers information does not return into history for my required time period, which allows simply state is tick information as well as 30 minute information at the greatest.

              I had a go at bringing in the information utilizing a product called tickstory, yet I am getting a configuration mistake in the log, endeavoring to maintain a strategic distance from migraine I am looking for other simpler choices where I can source the information.

                We do not maintain a list of historical data providers, however, here is a link with more information about importing historical data into NinjaTrader:

                https://ninjatrader.com/support/help.../importing.htm

                If data is formatted in this way, it should be functional with NinjaTrader.
