    Simple list of all available futures contracts

    Is there a list of all available futures contract codes for ninjatrader? Already of the box there is a good list of micros and regular contracts. But I would like a more comprehensive list if possible. For example Japanese Yen is not yet. A simple text list would suffice so I can add that to a few groups.

    Thanks!

    Hello siroki,

    Thank you for your post.

    Although there are instruments pre-loaded in the NinjaTrader database, but the definition of "available" may vary and depend on your broker/data connection. If you would like to see all futures that have been added to the database, please go to Control Center > Tools > Instruments. If you set the dropdown menu to Futures, then the window will list all futures that are part of the instrument database. In the case that you would like to update or create an instrument list such as the Futures and Micros lists, that may be done at Control Center > Tools > Instrument Lists.

    NinjaTrader comes preloaded with the most commonly traded instruments. Should you wish to add an instrument to your database that is not located in the preloaded lists, please follow these steps:
    • Navigate to the Control Center > Tools > Instruments window.
    • Left-click on the ‘add’ button that appears near the lower right-hand corner of the Instruments window.
    • Enter instrument-specific symbol mapping, exchanges, and other information on the Instrument editor that appears. This information will largely depend on your broker or data feed provider’s specific settings regarding the instrument in question.
    • Left-click the OK button once each field has been filled out with the correct information
    The new instrument has now been created in your database. Should you wish to add this instrument to an instrument list:
    • Navigate to the Control Center > Tools > Instruments Lists window.
    • Left-click to select the instrument list that you wish to add this instrument to in the left panel, then left-click on the ‘add’ button at the bottom of the right-hand panel.
    • Type the name and (if applicable) front month of your instrument in the search field that appears. Press the Enter button on your keyboard to confirm this change.
    • Left-click the OK button to close the Instrument Lists window.
    Your new instrument is now added to the instrument list of your choice. For more information:
