    Lme

    Hi,
    how do you subscribe to an LME/e-Signal instrument for base metals
    trading the forward?
    Thanks,

    Hello Trend,

    Thank you for your post.

    Unfortunately the London Metal Exchange is not supported.

      Kyle, thank you for the response.

      Now is there a way to create a custom symbol
      with Default Exchange in order to retreive the LME data
      from e-Signal?

        Hello trend,

        Please the information below to setup new instruments with eSignal as data feed in NinjaTrader when the exchange is not supported.

        To support a futures instrument XXX Z8-YYY, whereas XXX is the eSignal instrument name and YYY is the eSignal exchange name, then you need to check this on instrument manager:

        - ‘Default’ exchange should be assigned. If the instrument is traded on a different connection, then the native exchange needed to be assigned too

        - Set rolling period accordingly

        - Set mapping to XXX|YYY. This would be translated to XXX Z8-YYY for the Dec 08 expiry

          Hi Jason:

          I am having problems with e-Signal (Futures Source).
          I receive the following message

          Message
          "Error on loading chart data for KC ##-## Nybot': Error-105 on requesting bars"

          Besides the message I do get the data (KC ##-##) plotted on the chart.

          But there are some symbols where no data plot on the charts
          For example Euribor on the LIFFE exchange
          Symbol: I on NT mapped to I|EIR for e-Signal
          I get the I 09-09 but not the I ##-##

          Now in regards to the LME where no exchange is listed on NT,
          I designated a Name CAD (futures) and
          I set CAD|LME on the Misc for e-Signal
          Note that in e-Signal the symbol plotted is CAD M3-LME
          for the 3 month forward. Then I tried to bring CAD ##-## on NT
          but no data plot on the chart.

          Also, what are the parameters to rollover in the case of ##-##.
          Does user has any options to set these parameters?

          Thanks,

            Hi Trend,

            Thank you for your reply.

            1.) Please disconnect from eSignal, repair the NinjaTrader database using the steps below, restart the software and let me know if the issue persits.

            To repair the database:
            From the Control Center, click Tools > Options > Misc Tab > Repair DB.

            2.) You will need to confirm with eSignal that a continuous contract is supported for Euribor and CAD.

            3.) There is no roll-over in the case of a continuous contract.

              Hi Kyle,
              I'm able to bring LME in as an index.
              Note that it is a 3 month forward.
              I specify CAD M3-LME under Misc for e-Signal.
              The problem now is that I can not change the point value
              from 1 to 25 (greyed out). Any hints?

              Thanks,

                Hi Trend,

                Thank you for your reply.

                In the case of equity instruments, this is as expected.
                Unfortunately, no work-around exists.

                  Well,
                  as a suggestion you should include forwards
                  in your asset class list as well, which are closer to
                  futures in their specs (they need a pointvalue different
                  than one!)

                  Thanks,

                    Thank you for your reply.

                    I will forward this on to my development team for further consideration.

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

                      Hi Kyle,
                      I am trying to plot a continuation chart for a futures
                      symbol BAX (ME-Montreal excange).
                      I mapped BAX|MX for e-Signal.

                      I can plot BAX 09-09, but I get nthg for BAX ##-##

                      In e-Signal you can plot the continuation as %BAX 1!-MX

                      Thanks,

                        Hello trend,

                        Can you please try the following symbol map:
                        BAX|MX #F

                        If that does not work, please try:
                        %BAX 1!|MX

                          Hi Jason,
                          Tried both in the Misc tab for e-Signal
                          Still receive a chart with the tick size 0-0.01 and no data

                            Thank you for your reply.

                            What symbol mapping are you using when receiving BAX 09-09 data?

                              Well,
                              I get the plot for BAX 09-09 even with
                              no mapping in the e-Signal row!
