    Instrument Manager

    Why does the instrument manager not recognize some stocks? For instance, DPZ, Domino's Pizza it does not recognize but it pulls the information up in the market analyzer. Thank you.

    Hello,

    Can you please clarify who you connect to for data? This is displayed in the bottom left hand corner of the NinjaTrader Control Center.

    Do you not see DPZ listed from the Instrument Manager at all? Or does it not recognize the description as being 'Domino's Pizza'?

      My data provider is TD Ameritrade. It does not recognize DPZ nor does it recognize Domino's Pizza as a seperate instance and search. Thank you. This is the case with multiple stocks, not just a few.

        Hello,

        This symbol does not come preconfigured in NinjaTrader. If it is not being recognized, you will need to add it.

        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 connectivity 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.
