    Backtesting lines on chart move after reloading ninjatrader

    Having a problem with viewing lines drawn on a chart day before. My goal is to test certain patterns and come back to review at a later date. When I make line drawings on charts and then save workspace, next day when I view charts, some of the data is off by 1 or 2 ticks. As you can see by my screenshots below, 08/15/2011 5 min bar high and low are off by 1 tick. 06/08/2012 5 min bar ok. These are screenshots from the same workspace, just different dates.

    Data series settings:
    Days to load: 1900
    End date: 6/15/2016
    Session template: CME US Index Futures RTH

    Data Options Merge Policy set to: MergeBackAdjusted

    Note that when I open my workspace this morning, Data Series end date is changed to today (9/14/2016).

    Not sure if I shouldn't save workspace differently at end of day? Also not understanding why some of my line drawings stay correct (06/08/2012), while older date drawings are off by 1 tick (08/15/2011)??

    Thanks in advance

    Hello,
    Does the data still appear incorrect after you reload your historical data?
    To reload your historical data please:

    Right-click in the background of your chart and select 'Reload All Historical Data'.
    I have provided a link below to our Help Guide that goes over reloading historical data.

    In regards to the drawing lines do you have these set as global drawing objects?

      That seemed to work for now. Thanks!

      btw...how do i set drawings to global drawing objects? I'm assuming this would attach drawings to other charts in the same workspace?

        Hello,
        Global Drawing Objects will apply to all charts of the same instrument. For information on setting Global Drawing Objects please see the following link: http://ninjatrader.com/support/helpG..._tools__ob.htm
