    Importing Data for specific symbol

    I am using Yahoo and Kinetick to import data for strategy testing. It properly loads S&P, Nasdaq and Dow data. How do I setup it to import data for a specific symbol not in one of those indices.

    I want to backtest for specific ETF symbols that aren't in the index.

    I looked at the help and online videos and still can't figure it out, sorry I am a newbie

    Thanks

    Hello,

    Thank you for your post and welcome to our forums!

    NinjaTrader comes pre-loaded with the most commonly traded instruments however, you may find the need to add an additional instrument. Please follow the instructions below to add an instrument in the Instrument Manager.
    • 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

    * If you wish to add an equity, this can be accomplished without following the steps above. Just open a chart (for example) and start typing in the symbol and a new instrument is automatically created.
    The instrument is now added to the master instrument list. Please follow the instructions below if you want to add this instrument to an instrument list.
    • Select the instrument list you wish to add the instrument to via the "Instrument lists" drop down list in the upper left hand corner
    • Select the exchange (Default recommend for equities) as this will route orders to your broker smart routing system
    • Select the appropriate expiration date if this is a futures instrument
    • Press the "<" button to add the instrument to the list

    You are now complete and can press the "OK" button.



    If you have multiple symbols that need to be configured, you can also import a list of stocks, rather than reconfiguring each instrument one a time.

    Please see our Help Guide article on Importing a List of Stocks for more information:
