    Multi-platform symbols

    I am currently attempting to setup NT8 for multiple connections (Continuum, TDAmeritrade) and I am not sure if the TDA data is loading properly.

    I would like NT8 to pull ADSPD ($ADPSD on TDA) from TDA but it doesn't appear to want to. I read the multiple connections help guide and set my preferred data connection for both equities and indexes to TDA while leaving Continuum to handle futures.

    Anything I can do to make this work?

    Hello Convert,

    Are you showing a green dot next to the TD Ameritrade connection in the Connections menu of the Control Center?

    I'm not familiar with the ADSPD equity. Can you find a link to a google, yahoo, or tradingview page with this instrument?

    Are you able to load a chart for AAPL?

    Below is a link to the NinjaTrader 8 help guide on Data by provider which shows the supported connection technologies and the types of data these connections support.

      I do indeed have a green dot next to TDA in the connections menu

      I can load a chart for AAPL

      I can't seem to find a chart that's web-based

      It just plots the advance/decline of the SP500 so in my mind it should be an index

        Hello Convert,

        The NYSE Advancing Issues/Declining Issues index is the ^ADD in NinjaTrader.

        You can do a search for advance to pull up a list of these indexes in the instrument search (click the magnifying glass).

          Thank you. I've seen that one, but I'm specifically looking for the one regarding the SP500

            Hello Convert,

            I'm not familiar with this index.

            There is an ^SP500 index.

            This thread will remain open for any community members that may be familiar with this index.

              Let me try asking this another way. How can I pull a data feed from TD Ameritrade and plot it in NT8 for a symbol that NT8 doesn't recognize out of the box?

                Hello Convert,

                New instruments can be added in the Control Center -> Tools -> Instruments window. Click the add button.

                    Hello Convert,

                    Are you certain the symbol mapping for TD Ameritrade is correct?

                    Is the chart a minute chart?

                      I am indeed. I only mapped one data provider (TD Ameritrade) and set it to $ADSPD, which is exactly what I would enter in thinkorswim/TD Ameritrade to pull up that symbol on a chart

                      I am also on a 1 minute chart

                        Hello Convert, thanks for your reply.

                        Do you see any errors in the log tab of the Control Center? Could you post a screenshot of your instrument setup if there are no errors concerning this in the log tab?

                          It displays the following error whenever I try load a chart with that symbol

                          Could not get snapshot data for symbol: $ADSPD Error Message: The Security Symbol is invalid

                              Hi, thanks for your reply.

                              Please first try pulling up the chart as " ^ADSPD2 "

                              If that does not work, try removing the '$' symbol from your TDA mapping in the instrument settings. Its possible TDA servers will add this for you. We do not have a TDA account available to test or else I would do this myself. We can do a screen share if necessary.

                              Best regards.
