    Strategies not able to draw on charts in

    My strategy has stopped drawing in the latest release. I've attached a simple strategy which demonstrates this.

    Thanks for the post kevinenergy,

    When I test on my end, I do not have any issue.

    I may suggest double checking if an older instance of that strategy was giving you that result or if the strategy was not properly enabled.

    If the issue is still evident, I may suggest then to troubleshoot the installation.

    1. Close NinjaTrader
    2. Rename the Documents/NinjaTrader 8/ folder to "NinjaTrader 8 MINE"
    3. Uninstall NinjaTrader from Windows Control Panel.
    4. Download a fresh installer for NinjaTrader 8 and reinstall
    5. Test in the new clean environment.
    6. If all is well, close NinjaTrader and rename the "NinjaTrader 8" folder in documents to "NinjaTrader 8 NEW" and rename your "NinjaTrader 8 MINE" folder back to "NinjaTrader 8"
    7. Restarting the platform now will load your existing platform. Do you still see issues?

    Please let me know the results of these tests.

      Thats weird, I uninstalled and went back to and it is drawing again. I don't have time to set up my workspace from scratch at the moment so will stick to until I have time to do it.


        Hey Jim,

        I've had a chance to upgrade again and look into this drawing issue I was having. I am still experiencing this in and followed your instructions for a clean build. Still got the issue, but have done some investigations this morning.

        What I've discovered is that if I add a strategy to a chart (clean chart with no templates or other indicators), via Right-Click on chart but don't enable it straight away.... Then go to the Strategies tab in Control center and click the "enable" check box that the Strategy often does not draw with the sample indicator I made. However, If I enable it from the chart via right-click -> strategies, it is able to draw.

        Sometimes it draws and sometimes it doesn't - its a bit unpredictable. It also seems to be worse when the chart is not updating. For example if I'm looking at a chart that I don't have live data for e.g. NKY 12-18

        Incidentally the actual indicator I'm using in my strategy NEVER draws when I enable it from the strategies tab - but always draws when I enable it from the chart dialog


          Hello kevinenergy,

          Thanks for the reply and looking into further.

          Earlier we had a report for drawings not appearing on a chart when the strategy is enabled/disabled from the Control Center. This issue was tagged with the ticket ID NTEIGHT-13393 and Development recently pushed a fix to our continuous build. I am not hitting any such related issues with Drawing objects not appearing when enabling the strategy from the Control Center with this internal build when would encounter these issues. You'll be able to note the ID number for this issue in the Release Notes page of the Help Guide when Release 17 gets published.

          In the meantime, I would suggest enabling/disabling from the chart to avoid hitting this issue with

          Thanks again for bringing this up and investigating further!
