    The Great Move: NT7 to NT8 - can I bring stuff with me?

    Hi there,

    I want to take the plunge and move from NT7 to NT8. Is it possible to bring anything over from NT7? For example can I bring any of the below over from NT7 into NT8? If so, please could you provide a url which details the process to follow.
    • ATM settings
    • my home-made NinjaScript files?
    • connection settings?
    • any configuration settings?
    • workspaces (ok I know this one won't be possible)
    • chart templates?

    Thanks in advance,
    Michelle

    Oh - not to worry, I found a link providing all info on migrating:

    https://ninjatrader.com/NinjaTrader-8-MigrationGuide

    Migrating from version 7 to 8
    On the first launch of NinjaTrader 8, you will be presented with the option to migrate some of your prior NinjaTrader settings over via a "Migrate NinjaTrader Data" pop-up window. This migration process will help considerably in transferring your NinjaTrader 7 settings and files, but it will NOT migrate all data, so it is important to understand what is and is not transferred prior to removing your NinjaTrader 7 installation. Note that there are no conflicts with having both NinjaTrader 7 and 8 installed concurrently, so if you wish to keep Version 7 you can certainly do so.

    What Will Be Migrated
    • Historical Market Data
    • Market Replay Data
    • Account Connections
    • Custom Simulation Accounts
    • Historical Executions
    • Historical Orders
    • Custom Instruments
      • Including Fundamental Data, Rollovers, Dividends, and Commissions

    • Instrument Lists
    • ATM Strategy Templates
      • Default parameter type will be set to “Ticks”

    • Settings and Preferences
    • License Key
    • Hot Key Mappings
    • Chart Drawing Object Templates

    What Won't Be Migrated
    • NinjaScript Indicators and Strategies
    • Workspaces*
    • Strategy Wizard Templates
    • Chart Templates
    • Default Templates for Bar Types, Drawing Objects, Indicators, and Strategies
    • Session Templates
    • Saved Strategy Backtest/Optimization Results
