    How to import symbol with description

    Hi,

    I use File -> Stock -> Import Stock Symbol List to import new symbols. However, it does not import the description. Pls show me how to do so?

    Regards,
    Toyogo

    Hello Toyogo,

    Thank you for your post.

    There is no method to import the description as well.

    To do this you must manually enter the description for each stock you imported. Go to the NinjaTrader Control Center > Tools > Instrument Manager > search for the stock you imported > double click ont he stock in the search results > change the description > OK > OK.

    For information on the Instrument Manager please visit the following link: http://www.ninjatrader.com/support/h...nt_manager.htm

    Please let me know if I may be of further assistance.

      Hi,

      I know the manual method but that is far too slow, very disappointed that no mass importing feature!

        Hello Toyogo,

        Thank you for your suggestion.

        I will forward this to our development team to consider in a future release of NinjaTrader.

          Hi,

          It is very important feature as I am trying to load 3800 NYSE, 2800 NASDAQ, 1500 HKSE, 800 SGX, 2000 SSE etc. It is impossible to enter the description manually.

          The database is SDF file and can be updated using SQL, Is it possible to get your development team to provide a SQL statement to upload the symbol with Description as a interim solution?

          Regards,
          Toyogo

            Hello Toyogo,

            Thank you for your response.

            This would be unsupported and we would not provide code for this item. When I receive a tracking id for your request I will follow up with you on this thread.

                Hi Patrick,

                Thank you very much. Do you mean the tracking system with the unique ID # 452 will be updated in the next release version? I hope it is not too long!!!

                Cheers and Merry Christmas!
                Regards,
                Toyogo

                  Hello Toyogo,

                  Thank you for your note here.

                  The suggestion is submitted to our development team who will consider it for a future release, however this does not guarantee the implementation of this feature into a future release. The tracking id allows you to track this request by following up with us at any time with the tracking id.

                  Please let me know if you have any questions.
