    Hello Convert,

    Thanks for your post.

    The following publicly available resource can be used for symbol lookup for TD Ameritrade. I have searched for "SP Advance Decline to lookup these symbols.

    https://research.tdameritrade.com/gr...lure&type=wide

    The symbol map can then be entered for the instrument when looking up the instrument from the Control Center's Tools > Instruments window, and then adding the specific symbol mapping under TD Ameritrade after you edit the instrument definitions.

    If you are still having issues, please reach out to us at platformsupport [at] ninjatrader [dot] com. We can then schedule a time to get connected with you, or you could provide us your user name and password so we can test the mapping on our end. When writing in, please include the text "Attn Jim 2306443" and a link to this thread.

    We look forward to assisting.

    Hello, sorry for the late reply.

    I tried both and they didn't work. The TDA servers did not auto-add the "$" by the way.

    I'm agreeable to a screen-share

    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.

    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?

    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,

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

    Is the chart a minute chart?

    Hello Convert,

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

    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,

    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.

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

    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).

    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
