    instrument database

    Hi, I've spent a lot of time with NT8 adding instruments into the instrument manager and deleting some of the instruments I never use.

    1) How can I back this up so I don't lose all my work?
    2) I'm also worried that when I update my NT8 software, the original lists might be restored. Is that true, and if so how can I prevent that from happening?

    1. You can use the built-in backup feature of the platform to create a backup of your NinjaTrader:

    2. Upgrading to a new version of the platform should not overwrite any of your custom settings.

      Thanks, Patrick. But instruments I delete keep repopulating after I restart NT. Not all of them, but some random ones like stock FL.

      Just to test it out, in NT8 I tried deleting all instruments except ES, then restarted the program and a handful of futures are back in the list, about 20 stocks, and almost all FOREX. What's happening? I've done this 5 times now.

        I could not reproduce this behavior. Here are the steps I took:
        • Tools > Instruments
        • Select 'Stock' from the 'Type' drop down list
        • Delete all stocks except for AAPL > OK
        • Restart NinjaTrader

        Upon restart, AAPL was the only available stock in the instruments window.

        If the steps you're taking are different, can you provide more detail?

        What version of NinjaTrader 8 are you using? You can check under Help -> About (Example: 8.0.X.0)

          I am using 8.0.5.0

          If I only do the steps you outline above (i.e. only delete stocks) there is no problem after restart. However, if I then use those same steps to delete FUTURES (all futures except ES), then after restart the stocks will be back in the database, as well as the futures. Very strange.

            I was able to reproduce a similar behavior to yours, but not the exact behavior. I have reported this to the Development Team and we are tracking it as QA-2885.

            In the meantime, please upgrade to the most recent version of NinjaTrader 8 (8.0.5.2) and test again:

            To upgrade NinjaTrader, please follow the steps below.
            • First get your license key from NinjaTrader under Help> License Key then exit NinjaTrader
            • Click on the link: http://ninjatrader.com/PlatformDirect
            • Enter your license key and press Submit
            • Select 'NinjaTrader 8'
            • Select 'Download'
            • Critical: Before running the installer, ensure NinjaTrader is closed.


            Please let me know the results of testing while following the same steps.
