    BarTimer is off

    The bar timer is off. I have a standard 1-minute chart for 6E and a standard BarTimer. DataFeed is ZenFire.

    What happens now more than ever before is that I watch the bar timer to give me the end of the bar currently in progress and then the bar completes and starts creating the next one although according to the bar timer it still had 20 seconds or more to go.

    What is the problem here? Is there something that I need to re-set?

    Hello sandman,

    Since BarTimer is built using your local PC clock, the first step in troubleshooting is to shut down NinjaTrader and sync your local PC clock.

    You can sync your PC clock by double clicking on the clock in the lower right corner of your desktop. Once you have done that, click on Internet Time tab and then click Update. Your PC clock should now be updated.

    Next, restart NinjaTrader and reconnect to your data provider.

    Please let me know if you need further assistance.

        Is there a way to get this BarTimer indicator to be synced with the bars for this session and not with the PC clock?

          No, BarTimer will be synced with the clock only.

          However your PC clock should be synced with the market data. If you are seeing discrepancies, please try syncing to another time server.

            Mine seems to be consistently off by about 20 seconds ahead of the close of the bar.
