    Automatically Created Stock Instruments:

    I have just switched to NT 7 - When I type in a chart a new stock symbol (I.e. one that I haven't modeled in the instrument manager)l, the following error message occurs:

    Isn't there a default set-up option for stocks? I think 6.5 would automatically create new instruments without this error message. It's somewhat frustrating...

    Hello slyng,

    Thank you for your post.

    In NinjaTrader 7, you will need to manually define an exchange for any instrument you create. Unfortunately, default no longer suffices as the only exchange for an instrument.

      Ugh... Really? But 6.5 still has this capability?

      Why would you guys remove that functionality from the new build? This adds multiple steps to what should be a fairly straightforward logic... Or why can't i just tell the system it's a stock directly from the chart?

      Alternatively, is there a way to import a huge number of stocks so that they are automatically set up?

        slyng,

        This is new with NinjaTrader 7. I'll forward your feedback on to my development team.

        Per importing a list of symbols, see the following link: http://www.ninjatrader.com/support/h...stock_symb.htm

          So for any US stock, I can use NYSE even if the stock is a nasdaq issue?

            slyng,

            No - you will need to use the correct exchange.
