    Alert when primary data feed loses connection

    Hi, it's imperative I'm alerted when my primary data feed drops out.

    I use 2 connections, one for data, the other for trade executions.

    As NT8 automatically switches over to my brokers feed if my primary data provider drops out I won't receive the standard 'connection lost' error alert / audio warning.

    So I will never know unless I'm paying constant attention whether I've lost connection to my primary data provider.

    Please excuse me if I've overlooked something, but through all my searches I've come up with nothing.

    How can this problem be solved? Thanks.

    ps. Can you also make it a lot more obvious which connection is providing the data feed?

    Hello Jimmyk,

    Thank you for your post.

    Glad to assist. There is not a method to send an email via the platform Alert settings at this time. However, it may be possible to create a custom indicator to accomplish this.

    If you're a programmer yourself, let me know and I can have our NinjaScript team follow up.

    We look forward to assisting further.

      Sorry, but this is a very simple request that shouldn't need custom programming.

      Quite clearly NT8 has the inbuilt function to accept 2 connections.

      It should really be very obvious which connection is being used for data and which is being used for trading don't you think?

      There should also be warnings / alerts whenever the chosen connections are not available or change for any reason. This seems like common sense.

      Can you please include this in a future release as there are many of us that would prefer not use our brokers questionable data feeds without an alert, thank you.

        Thank you for your reply.

        I understand, I have submitted a request on your behalf regarding a pubic replay list for future feature consideration.

        The ID for this request is SFT-2982. You may reference this ID in the future regarding this matter. If implemented, this would also list in the NinjaTrader Help Guide release notes (Help > Help > Release Notes).

        Let us know if we may assist further.

          Did we get a follow-up and solution on this issue, I need this as well.

          I would think anyone who is using this platform for automated trading would need this functionality too.

            Thank you for your reply.

            This item has not been updated at this time. However, this is a feature that should be possible as part of a automated strategy. I can have our NinjaScript team follow up with tips on creating this if needed.

            We look forward to assisting further.
