    Keeping Trade Performance while doing Ninjatrader Maintenance

    I take the following steps at the end of each day in order to have data populate correctly the following session. My issue is that it also wipes out all Trade Performance on the Sim Account. Is there a way to perform this maintenance while retaining Trade performance data?

    Step 1:
    Shut off data feed connections

    Step 2:
    Go to Tools -> Database Management -> Reset DB, and select both checkboxes and click Reset

    You will be asked to reset the database... Select: YES

    Step 3:
    Quit NinjaTrader

    Step 4:
    Go to your Documents folder for NinjaTrader and locate the NinjaTrader 8 folder and double click on it:

    Step 5:
    Go to the folder called DB and double click on it (you are now in the NT8 cache files)

    Step 6:
    Select the following folders: TICK / MINUTE / DAY / CACHE all of these folders need to be deleted... select the folder then right click and delete.

    Once you have completed these steps, you must reboot the computer (if you want optimum performance during your next trading session from your computer and NinjaTrader)

    I believe skipping Step 2 would work.

      Hello pterich,

      Thanks for writing in.

      Correct, step 2 is what's causing your trade history to be reset.

      It shouldn't usually be necessary to reset your database or delete your cache for charts to display correctly. We'll be happy to assist with finding the root of whatever symptoms that are causing you to feel the need to take these steps. Please write in to PlatforsSuppprtATninjatraderDOTcom with a description of the problem and your log and trace files.

      You can do this by going to the Control Center-> Help-> Email Support

      Ensuring 'Log and Trace Files' is checked will include these files. This is checked by default.

      Please reference the following ticket number in the body of the email: 2398917 ATTN Tyler

      I look forward to being of assistance.

        Thanks for your assistance Tyler,

        I'm using third-party indicators and whenever I have display issues, this maneuver seems to solve the issue. If I have further problems pertaining to the retention of Trade Performance data, I'll let you know.
