    Save Playback Progress Between Sessions?

    Hi there. New user, really enjoying the platform, but...

    When trying out a new price action strategy, I like to papertrade for at least a week or so. Because I'm looking at price action, I require manual trade execution; automated backtesting won't work for me. I'm interested in performance data over a long period of time, longer than I can trade during a single session, but I don't see a way to save day-to-day progress so that I can pick up where I left off (and wind up with useful metrics). My papertrade account just seems to reset every session.

    I assume I'm missing something obvious here, but hoped someone might have some thoughts on how to go about this.

    Best, Chris.

    Hello nulldumpz,

    Thanks for your post and welcome to the Ninjatrader Forums!

    If you are paper trading with live data (demo account or funded with a simulation account) and are using the Sim101 account then yes at the end of the session the daily trade data is cleared to make way for the current/next session (this would also be true for a live funded account). In this case you can use the New>Trade Performance to generate the report statistics of your previous days because your trades are saved into your database. Reference: https://ninjatrader.com/support/help...erformance.htm

    If you are using the Playback connection, then each time you change the start date/time the Replay101 account is reset and the data/statistics are gone as they are not saved in your database. In this case what you can do is to generate the trade performance report after performing your trades but before changing the start date or time (or closing the connection) and then export that report data to a spreadsheet and just accumulate the trade data as you perform. There are no means to import the trade data back in so further statistical analysis would need to occur external to NinjaTrader.

      Ah, okay. Yes, I'm using the Playback connection and had been doing that.

      Thanks for the quick reply.

        Is there an existing feature request for the ability to export Playback101 trading data in a format that can be imported back for viewing in the Trade Performance window? This would be incredibly helpful.

        There is really no way for Excel to do what the Trade Performance tool does, without basically coding the TP features into a spreadsheet. And even then it would be impossibly difficult to supply Excel with all the proper data, first having to export a spreadsheet file for each possible TP view, and then combining them all into one.

        If the Trade Performance feature could include an option to export a file containing all the trade data for the generated report, and then import it for analysis later, that would be unbelievably useful.

          Hello tradgrad,

          Thanks for your post.

          I will submit a feature request based on your post and will update this thread when that has been added to the system. If an existing feature request would cover this then your vote would be added to that.

          In either case, once I have the feature request number, I will update this thread.

          Thanks for your interest to improve NinjaTrader.

            Did this feature request ever get officially made and assigned a number?

              Hello tradgrad,

              Thanks for your reply and interest.

              I submitted the request on January 6th, and it is in the queue to be reviewed/processed.

              When the request is processed I will update this thread with the feature request number.

              Thanks in advance for your patience.

                Hello Tradgrad,

                Thanks for your patience.

                Your vote has been added to the existing feature request SFT-3993, "Save Trade Performance report so it can be loaded and viewed at a later time (especially helpful for Playback)".

                Feature Request Disclaimer
                We receive many requests and cannot reasonably implement all requested features or changes. Interest is tracked internally and if enough interest is tracked, it would be weighed against how feasible it would be to make those changes to consider implementing.
                When new features are implemented, they will be listed in the Release Notes page of the Help Guide. The ID number will be different than the internal feature request tracking ID, but the description of the feature will let you know if that feature has been implemented.

                  Hi, im also quite interested in this feature, probably more on keeping the account balance of the Playback101 after disconnecting to playback.
                  Is there any place where the future releases are shown? just for my knowledge, is there any planning date/release for this feature?
