    Hello Light7801,

    Thank you for your post.

    The best way to add stocks is On-The-Fly.

    First, create a chart that you know works (AAPL, for example)

    Once the chart has loaded just start typing. A change instrument box should appear. Hit enter and it should automatically fill in the details for the stock.

      but in that way i can only view the chart of the instrument. what if i want to back test it or buy it? it seems i cannot add it into the existing list?

        Hi Light7801,

        Yes, this is the best way to add equities to the list. After doing this you can backtest or trade it. If you want to add the instrument manually follow the steps below:
        • From the NinjaTrader Control Center window select the menu Tools > Instrument Manager
        • Press the "New" button
        • *Enter in instrument specific information and select the appropriate exchange (add Default exchange for equities in addition to the actual exchange)
        • Fill in any relevant information under the "Misc" tab such as symbol mapping for your target connectivty provider
        • Press the "OK" button
