    Cloud Storage

    Any thoughts about cloud storage?

    I have NT installed on a desktop, laptop and tablet. It would be nice to be able to access our charts from any one of the computers we have NT installed on at anytime.

    Thanks.

    Hello Segwin,

    Thanks for your inquiry.

    NinjaTrader will download market data to create the charts from the account that you connect to. It would be a limitation of the account that you connect with that will allow you to view live chart data at once from multiple locations.

    Additionally, there would be a limitation of having a license for each device you have NinjaTrader installed on.

    With those caveats in mind, viewing chart data from multiple sources would be possible.

    Keep in mind that if multiple instances of NinjaTrader are configured to access the same data, the same errors involving File Access Violations that we see when OneDrive is enabled on the NinjaTrader documents folder will occur. The limitation would still be on the provider end.

    If you have any additional questions or have additional detail for your inquiry, please don't hesitate to write back.

      The issue lies that if you store your data to a common networked location, each data file can only be accessed by one application at a time. If two applications, (say NinjaTrader and OneDrive, for example, or 2 instances of NinjaTrader) try to access the same file at once, you will receive a notification about checked this phenq review out yet a file access violation from your operating system.

      You could map the NinjaTrader documents folder to a networked location and configure that for both platforms, but you would only be able to access that data with one running application at a time. (One instance of NinjaTrader must be shut off when using the application from another machine.)

      To set this up:
      • Ensure NinjaTrader 8 has been installed and is operational from the standard C:\Users\<User name>\Documents\NinjaTrader 8 location
      • Once verified, manually copy the existing user data directory in Documents\NinjaTrader 8 folder to a desired location
      • (i.e., from C:\Users\<Use name>\Documents\NinjaTrader 8 to D:\MyNT8)


      After the folder and its contents have been copied over, you can then add the command line switch to a shortcut's target:
      • Right click on an existing application shortcut, such as from your desktop or the start menu-> select "Properties"-> select "Shortcut" tab.
      • Update the "Target" field with the /d switch and include your desired location:
      • (i.e., "C:\Program Files (x86)\NinjaTrader 8\bin\NinjaTrader.exe" /d "D:\MyNT8")


      The above directions are only applicable for NinjaTrader 8.

      Is it possible to access the data with devices on different versions of Windows? My laptop has Windows 10 and my PC has Windows 7. Can you please clarify?

        Thanks for the reply. I sure don't want another nightmare like I had with one drive.

        Just a thought on how to make having two computers see the same thing.

            No but I don't think it is that simple. I can backup to a thumb drive and do a restore on another computer but even that is buggy.

            Just thinking out loud.

              Why not keep NT running on one PC and access it remotely using a remote access program such as Splashtop, Logmein, or Remote Desktop. That is the way some co-located servers work so you can use NT with your machine near the exchange. That way only one machine is using NT and can be accessed from any device that can remote in. i.e. tablet, phone, pc

                  Thank you so much for step-by-step clear instructions. Was facing the same problem (different computers) and came here looking for a solution. Joined to say thanks.
