    Adding instruments

    I want to add 500 symbols(stocks) to NT. Is it possible to automate this process? I will be too old to the moment when I will finally add them manually.

    Hello vitaleg,

    You can import a stock symbol list instead of adding stocks manually one by one in the Instrument Manager.

    Please see the link below for instructions to import a stock symbol list.

        You will still need a whole life to map the symbols into Instrument Manager!

          Using ZenFire
          NT7

          For a List of Futures is it possible to auto-download all the data available from zenfire?

          example i want ES...instead of downloading 1 by 1 each contract, how do we download it all for 1 year backward and 1 year forward from current contract? can this be scheduled?

          Do you have an alert for rollover day? ie a volume based rule?

          How do we access the continuous time series for the futures? Is that automatically generated by Zenfire/NT7?

            Hello Oil_Trader,

            You can download historical data via the Historical Data Manager or by creating a chart.
            http://www.ninjatrader.com/support/h...7/download.htm

            It will automatically download previous expiries and it will merge them when creating a chart providing the 'Merge policy' for the instrument is set to MergeBackAdjusted or MergeNonBackAdjusted. You can setup the merge policy in the Instrument Manager - highlight the instrument and click Edit.
            http://www.ninjatrader.com/support/h...nstruments.htm

            Data will be merged in charts as per the rollover dates that are setup. You can view the rollover date as follows. Please go to Tools-->Instrument Manager, highlight the instrument in question and click Edit. Select the Misc-tab and scroll to the bottom. Click the 'Contract Months' row and subsequently click the '...' button. Click an expiry month to view the rollover date. More information can be found at the link above under 'Understanding the Misc tab'.

              Which contract will be the one with the continuous data? The front month? or whichever contract I am working with?

              Also how far does the continuous data go back? can it be defined by the user or it just goes all the way back however the data provider has their intraday 1 minute data is available?

                Data will be merged for the contract you work with - as long as the historical data request spans across expiries.

                There will be historical tick and minute data available up to June 2006 for futures.

                  Database

                  How is 1 minute data (1997 to 2010) that I bought from a 3rd party merge with ZenFIre data which is only (2008 to 2010 1 minute data)?

                  Are these two sources merged together? or do they have their own separate database?

                    If you already have historical data in the database, it will not be loaded from the connectivity provider. It will only load the historical data that is not available in the database, but is requested by your chart.
