    Historical IB Level II market data

    Hello!!
    Im running a market delta by price script that require level 2 market data, but NT8 appears to be loading level 2 data only from the moment when i open the chart, not historical (meaning the previous bars before the current time when the chart was opened).
    Im on a 5min chart, with IB data, no log error, time and sales and dom shows the level 2 data stream correctly.

    Thanks in advance!

    Hello Siroya, thanks for your note.

    Level 2 data is not recorded historically, so it will only show up after real-time data streams in.

    Kind regards.

      Is this a limitation on NT8 or IB market data? Is there a way to store level 2 data? thanks

        Hi Siroya, thanks for your reply.

        NinjaTrader does not record level 2 data into the database. When you run NinjaTrader streaming real-time data, the level 1 is cached and saved in the NinjaTrader database so that is can be backfilled at a later time. This is not the case for level 2 data. Level 2 data can be recorded for playback, Tools>Options>Market Data> check "Record live data as historical". After you have collected some data, you can connect to the Playback connection and replay the data.

        Best regards.

            Hi siroya, yes that is correct. It would be up to NinjaTrader to cache and backfill the level 2 data. There is a feature request to add this functionality with feature ID SFT-1492, I'll add a vote to that for you.

            Best regards.

                Hello siroya, thanks for your reply.

                I am not aware of a centralized resource for that info. It is correct, futures trading is not supported from an NT8 connection. Details of instruments and type of data you can stream into NinjaTrader will be available at the data providers individual websites. For example, IB can stream in all the supported NinaTrader instrument types. Brokers like NinjaTrader brokerage only deal in futures instruments, so that would be the only type of data that can be streamed from NinjaTrader Continuum (in addition to index data), so it really depends on the data provider.

                Best regards.
