    Market Replay Not Working

    Hello, When I turn on market replay, set the date to July 1-15th, it does not work. Do you know why?


    Thanks for your post.

    I have provided a link below to our YouTube video that provides a brief overview of downloading Market Replay data, connecting to the Playback Connection, and replaying data:
    To use the Playback Connection you will first need to have data for Market Replay.

    There are 2 ways of getting market data for Market Replay:
    1. Record live market data To do this you will need to enable the Market Replay Recorder by going to Tools> Options> Market Data > check 'Enable market recording for playback' > OK. Now data will be recorded for any instrument in any NinjaTrader window that is receiving live market data. Level II (market depth) data is only recorded if a Level II, SuperDOM, or FX Pro window is open and receiving data for the instrument. The Market Analyzer window is the recommended recording window as multiple instruments can be added to one Market Analyzer window and all recorded at the same time. Please see the following help guide page for more information: http://ninjatrader.com/support/helpG...ReplayRecorder
    2. Download replay data from the NinjaTrader server.

      NinjaTrader offers a limited amount of replay data free to download. Only the most common instruments are currently available.

    To download replay data:
    • Select the Tools menu in the Control Center, select the menu item Historical Data and select "Load" tab. Here the section "Get Market Replay data" can be expanded.
    • Select the instrument and date of the desired replay data and press the OK button to begin the download.

    Please see the following help guide page for more information:


    • Record for market replay must be disabled from the Data tab of the Options menu before downloading replay data.
    • NOT available when connected to the Playback connection.

    To start playback, first disconnect from any other connections. Connect to the Playback Connection by going to Connections > Playback Connection.

    Select the time frame for the Market Replay Data you would like to view. NinjaTrader windows will only display data for instruments and times you have data available.

    You can check what data you have available by right clicking on the Playback Connect controls and selecting 'Available data'. Data will only be displayed within the selected time frame.

    I have provided a link below to our Help Guide that goes over Market Replay.

      Thank you for the reply. I rolled over my MES contract today. Will my data from the previous contract still work with the market replay function?



        Thank you for the update.

        Yes, Market Replay will still play the prior contract's data.

        Please let us know if we may be of any further assistance.

          I have ensured I downloaded market data and still am unable to get the Playback function to work.

          EDIT- It works once I use the current contracts data.

          Since I rolled over my contract, how can I create a chart for the contract that I rolled over?

            I have plenty of data downloaded in order to use the market replay function, but it wont play on the new MES contract.



              Thank you for that update.

              I see in your screenshot that the Playback controller dates are greyed out; does it not load and allow you to change the date?

              If so, please close NinjaTrader and restart it in Safe Mode.

              Safe Mode will prevent NinjaTrader from:
              • Loading workspaces.
              • Connecting on start-up.
              • Loading custom assemblies.
              • Getting instrument updates from the server.
              To enable safe mode, please use the following steps:
              • Exit NinjaTrader.
              • Hold the CONTROL key and double click the NinjaTrader icon.
              • Keep the CONTROL key held down until you see the Control Center.
              • You can verify you are in safe mode by going to Help -> About.
              After starting it in Safe Mode, does connecting to the Playback connection allow you to change the date on the controller? If the answer is yes, this would indicate a custom add-on interfering with the data loading correctly.

              Please let me know the results of this test.
