    what are tickers in NinjaTrader for micro E-mini futures?

    reference:

    https://www.cmegroup.com/education/f...x-futures.html

    Or do we need to set up from scratch? Could you give guide to set it up assuming continuum is the data provider?

    You should not have to configure these manually. The symbols will be added to the NinjaTrader 8 database once we receive the final information regarding these products from the CME.

      What about NT7?

        NinjaTrader 7 cannot be updated on-the-fly like NinjaTrader 8, so another solution will need to occur for NinjaTrader 7 users. Since we do not have any details from the CME, we also do not have any definitive plans, but when we do have more information we'll have clear instructions for all users on how to get these new symbols.

          By "another solution", I presume you mean a new "point" release of NT7 ?

          Which means NT7 users will need to download and upgrade to the new NT7 version, as soon as you release it ...

          Is this correct?

          When will this new "point" release for NT7 be ready?

            NinjaTrader has added the new micro e-mini futures instruments into the NinjaTrader database. The symbols are as follows:
            • M2K = Micro E-mini Russell 2000 Futures
            • MES = Micro E-mini S&P 500 Futures
            • MNQ = Micro E-mini Nasdaq-100 futures
            • MYM = Micro E-mini Dow futures

            An uninstall, reinstall, and instrument reset is necessary to receive these new symbols. This is required even if you're using the latest version of NinjaTrader 7.0.1000.40. Please follow the following steps (this will not affect or remove your custom files or settings):
            • Copy your license key from the Control Center > Help > License Key window.
            • Close all running applications.
            • Uninstall NinjaTrader within Windows Control Panel.
            • Reboot your machine.
            • Once these steps are completed, download and install NT7 from the link below.
            Once installed, reset your instruments:
            • 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
            After the instrument reset, you should find these new instruments within the NinjaTrader Instrument Manager.

              Thanks, Patrick.

              Why isn't the NT7 database upgrade being rolled out as a new version, such as 7.0.1000.41?

              I'm just curious, but wouldn't a new NT7 version work to alleviate confusion amongst the masses?

              I mean, it would make release notes easier, upgrade instructions simpler, etc ... right?

                The 7.0.1000.40 installer was updated with the new instruments. This minor change did not warrant a full new version release. Thanks for the feedback. I'll pass this on to the Development Team.

                  Thanks, the upgrade from the old 7.0.1000.40 to the new 7.0.1000.40 worked fine, I can now see the micro e-mini's in Instrument Manager.
