    change default name of instruments to match data provider

    I would like the "master instrument" name/symbol to match the symbol from my primary data provider. Is there anyway to do that automatically? Or must it be done manually though the instrument manager?

    Hello,

    NinjaTrader's instruments may differ in symbol name from your primary data provider, but uses a feature called Symbol Mapping to pull the correct data from your data provider for each instrument.

    To change these instruments names, you would have to recreate the instrument from scratch with the new name. Please follow the instructions below to add an instrument in the Instrument Manager.

    1. From the NinjaTrader Control Center window select the menu Tools> Instrument Manager
    2. Press the 'New' button
    3. Enter in instrument specific information and select the appropriate exchange (add Default exchange for equities in addition to the actual exchange)
    4. Fill in any relevant information under the 'Misc' tab such as symbol mapping for your target connectivity provider
    5. Press the 'OK' button

    The instrument is now added to the master instrument list. Please note this would essentially create a duplicate instrument, so the original instrument would have to be deleted from the Instrument Manager.
