    Hi This is useful and works well, Thanks a lot!
    There is a small issue that is still there.I imported 1 min data for a custom ticker. The import is successful but when I try to create chart from 1 min data nothing shows up. However, when I backtest a strategy then it's running fine.
    Any suggestions??

    Hi Matthew
    I have data for Nifty futures (rollover contract for few months). I want to name the instrument as "NiftyFutRO" etc. (this data is not readily available on yahoo/kinetick/google etc.)
    Also I have 1 min data, which I want to use for backtesting.
    Please tell me the process to create instrument and load data for it from text file.
    Let me know if I need to provide anymore details.
    Thanks

    Historical data problem

    Hello,

    I have emailed it also to the helpdesk.
    I have the following (frustating) problem. I use the FDAX with minutes.
    At this moment it is the 12-11. Connecting with IB Works fine for two years of data.
    I can do a fine backtest. etc.

    Now I have bought Fdax data from 1/1/2006 till half 2009. I have changed the format and the file is ok now.

    It is possible to read all the data with the historical data manager. It is merged with the 12-11 FDAX future. I can see this if I do edit in the Historical datamanager. Also I can see nice charts from 1/1/2006 till now.

    But the big problem is the following. If I run the Strategy analyzer it refuses to analyze the data from 1/1/2006 tll whatever time. After a second the analyzer give back results all 0.

    Hope somebody can help me.
    Regards
    Niels

    Gennaker,

    I am happy to assist you.

    What sort of strategy are you using? You could attempt to use the continuous contract instead of ES 12-11 if your data provider offers this. The continuous contract has expiry ##-## and can be added in the instrument manager.

    Please let me know if I may assist further.

    Similar Problem with Historical Data

    Matthew,

    Thought I would piggyback onto this thread as I have similar problem with historical data. I have imported a text file named ES 12-11.Last.txt into Ninjatrader with data going back to March of this year.

    I am able to see March data in edit tab of the Historical Data Manager, but when run a backtest, nothing executes earlier than 18-Jul-11 of this year. The only clue I can come up with is this is about when I started using Ninjatrader.

    Thanks

    Hello,

    ES 03-03 likely does not exist in your instrument manager.

    This is a known limitation that will be fixed in a future release.


    The contract dates only go so far back and are based on your local PC clock. To get past dates, you must set your PC clock back to that year and restart NinjaTrader.


    After you have set your clock back, you can add this instrument to your default instrument list. Once added, shut down NinjaTrader and set your PC clock to the current date/time settings.


    You should then be able to access this old expiry from your default instrument list.

    The file name was ES 03-03.txt. I tried changing it to ES 03-03.Last.txt. It still did not work. I get the error "unable to import file .... Instrument is not supported.
