    COT data not downloading

    Hello,

    I have activated the option to download the COT data in the global settings, but the data did not download. Folders have been created but with no content.

    Any suggestions why this is happening?

    Thanks,
    Lukas

    Hello Lukas,

    Can you please tell me what NinjaTrader 8 version you have installed. You can check this at Control Center-->Help-->About (8.0.xx.x).

    Did you apply the COT indicator in a weekly futures chart? If not, please right click in a weekly futures chart and select 'Indicators'. Add the COT indicator. Check if lines are plotted and if the folders in question contain content.

    More information regarding the COT indicator can be found at the link below.

      Hi Jason,

      the newest NT Version is installed (8.0.24.3).

      Even on a weekly chart, the data is not plotted and the folders are not populated.

      I guess the issue might be the cftc.gov site is down where the data is downloaded from (https://www.cftc.gov/) ?

        Hello lakman184,

        When I test it on my end, I experience the same. I have the following error many times in the trace file.

        2021-09-20 05:42:34:884 Unable to download the file from: https://www.cftc.gov/files/dea/histo..._txt_2021.zip: The remote name could not be resolved: 'www.cftc.gov'

        Please check if the COT indicator plots once the cftc.gov website is up and running again.

          I have checked with my co-workers and they don't experience the issue. What is your physical location? I'm located in Europe, the Netherlands.

              Unfortunately it seems the website is geo-locked. We tested from another location (also Germany) and experienced the same.

              If you have a VPN, I suggest to connect outside Europe (preferably US) and check if you can access the website.
