    Micro Futures with External Data Feed

    How do I get micro symbols when using an external data feed (Tradestation) and the sim account?

    #2
    Hello Atomic,

    Thanks for posting,

    NinjaTrader has added the new micro e-mini futures instruments into the NinjaTrader database. The symbols are as follows:
    • M2K = Micro E-mini Russell 2000 Futures
    • MES = Micro E-mini S&P 500 Futures
    • MNQ = Micro E-mini Nasdaq-100 futures
    • MYM = Micro E-mini Dow futures
    In NinjaTrader 7, an uninstall, reinstall, and instrument reset is necessary to receive these new symbols. This is required even if you're using the latest version of NinjaTrader 7.0.1000.40. Please follow the following steps (this will not affect or remove your custom files or settings):
    • Copy your license key from the Control Center > Help > License Key window.
    • Close all running applications.
    • Uninstall NinjaTrader within Windows Control Panel.
    • Once these steps are completed, download and install NT7 from the link below.

    Once installed, reset your instruments:
    • Disconnect from your data feed: NinjaTrader Control Center> File> Disconnect> Select your data feed.
    • Reset your Instruments: NinjaTrader Control Center> Tools> Options> Data tab> Reset Instruments> OK.
    • Restart NinjaTrader

    After the instrument reset, you should find these new instruments within the NinjaTrader Instrument Manager.

      So if you do the above do you lose your chart settings, ect? Would you be starting with a brand new blank NT?

        No, this would not result in you losing any of your previous work or settings.

        Please let me know if I may be of further assistance.

          If I uninstall NT7 and reinstall it, will I lose all of the workspaces and indicators that I have added?

            Uninstalling/reinstalling NinjaTrader 7 will not affect any of your saved files or settings as long as you leave the Documents > NinjaTrader 7 folder untouched.

            Please let me know if I may be of further assistance.
