    "You must select an expiry" in NT7 when trying to add a stock in Instrument list

    When trying to add a stock to a list in instrument manager I get the error "you must select an expiry". It seems that NT is treating a security as a future contract or similar.

    I use this installation only for backtesting and optimizing.

    Hello guillembm,

    Thank you for writing in.

    After testing this on my end, I was able to successfully add the AAPL stock to my list without seeing this error.

    I suspect what you are experiencing is due to not resetting your Instruments, and possibly needing an update.

    Please update NinjaTrader 7 (if required) and reset your instruments:

    First, to update NinjaTrader, please follow the steps below:
    • First get your license key from NinjaTrader under Help> License Key then exit NinjaTrader
    • Click on the link: http://ninjatrader.com/PlatformDirect
    • Enter your license key and press Submit
    • Select 'NinjaTrader 7'
    • Select 'Download'
    • Critical: Before running the installer, ensure NinjaTrader is closed.
    Lastly, to reset your instruments, please follow the steps below:
    • Disconnect from your data feed: NinjaTrader Control Center> File> Disconnect> Select your data feed
    • Reset your Instruments: NinjaTrader Control Center> Tools> Options> Data tab> Reset Instruments>OK
    • Restart NinjaTrader> Connect (NinjaTrader Control Center> File> Connect> Select your connection
    Please note, resetting your Instruments will remove custom Instruments you have added to the platform.

    I look forward to resolving your future inquiries.
