    How to download S&P Emini and S&P Full future cotracts

    I am trying unsuccessfully to download the Emini tick data for S&P and Russell.
    I go to Tools - Historical Data Manager - Download

    but the window does not allow me to type the contract name (ES 12-11). I want the data so I can export it to an external file.

    How do I download the full future contracts for S&P not the Eminis, what is the correct symbol? I saw somewhere that it should be SP 12-11, is that correct?

    I am using BarChart for my data feed.
    Thanks.

    Hello kh6044,

    You will need to select the instrument you like to download on the left side in the Download-tab. It will list all instrument lists you have available. If the desired instrument is not listed in an instrument list, please add to an instrument list in the Instrument Manager. Instructions can be found at the link below.

    Once you added the ES 12-11 and TF 12-11 to an instrument list you can select it in the Download-tab. Highlight the instrument, setup the start/end dates and what type of data you like to download and click Download.

    Instructions to export historical data can be found at the following link.

    Yes, the full S&P futures uses the SP symbol. However NinjaTrader does not have this instrument available by default. You will need to create a custom instrument in the Instrument Manager. Please click New in the Instrument Manager to create a new instrument. More information can be found at the link below.
