    How to bring external data into NinjaTrader 8 without using Import

    Hi.

    Is there any alternative to Import Data to put data into NinjaTrader 8? For instance, can I use some kind of input command in NinjaScript to read data from an external text file or a database written in SQL, for instance? I want a solution that allows me to bring into NinjaTrader something like the weather condition or anything that is not part of the traditional feed.

    Thanks.

    Hello ccbiasi,

    Thank you for your note.

    I wrote an indicator which downloads data off the CFTC website, parses it and displays it as an indicator under a chart. You could use this as a model for how to import alternative data.

    I do not know of a command input or any other alternative aside from importing historical data through the historical data manager.

    Please let us know if you need further assistance.

      Hi AlanP,
      I am interested in your indicator that parses data. Unfortunately the link above is no longer valid. Do you have an update to the indicator or the link? Thanks.

          What exactly is the name of this indicator? and is it for NT8? I am wanting to grab price/fundamental data from a website and use it as "real time" data for a strategy. Is this possible?
