Hello zooinek,

Thank you for your post.

There is a specific format for data that will successfully import into NinjaTrader. The error you are receiving indicates that the data does not conform with the standard format.

The first thing is that the file must be a .txt file. Also it must be formatted as detailed in the following link.

Futures, foreign currency and options trading contains substantial risk and is not for every investor. An investor could potentially lose all or more than the initial investment.

CFTC Rules 4.41 - Hypothetical or Simulated performance results have certain limitations, unlike an actual performance record, simulated results do not represent actual trading. Also, since the trades have not been executed, the results may have under-or-over compensated for the impact, if any, of certain market factors, such as lack of liquidity. Simulated trading programs in general are also subject to the fact that they are designed with the benefit of hindsight.
