    No Playback of historical data


    Please see the attached pic. I'm using market replay with historical data but i cannot get the market to play. Please let me know your thoughts.



    Hello Evan,

    While the chart should indeed playback, it would only play the data it has available. In this case, it seems the missing tick data between 1/5 at 10AM and 1/6 at 6 PM might be the issue.

    As your player is currently at 2 AM it would not have any data to build this chart.

    Does the chart play if you move forward to 9 PM? This should also give your indicators some time to build.

      Hi, I can't get it to playback at all. Are there any troubleshooting steps?


        Ah, the problem is the expiry month of the contracts. The solution is to bundle the data into a folder labeled ES ##-## and load that symbol into a chart. Is that the only solution you know of?

          Hello evanp90,

          Of course, I've listed a few helpful resources below.

          As first suggestion, you may find a YouTube video below 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 publicly available 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 publicly available help guide page for more information regarding this feature:


          • 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.

          Last but not least, I have also provided a publicly available link below to our Help Guide that goes over Market Replay.
          If you still experience any issues please send us an email at platformsupport (at) ninjatrader (dot) com, we could then schedule a remote session and assist you in person.
