Default Chart from IB data feed for Nifty future

Hi ,

I tried to connect to IB TWS and NT7. I was able to see to the trade taken. How can set up the instrument to open a new chart. The chart image is from the trade window , where I right click to see the chart. But I guess I have to setup something in the instrument manager.

Please provide more information.

Cheers.

Hello chinmaya122,

Are you asking how to open a chart?

Click File -> New -> Chart
In the upper left corner type NIFTY 05-18 -> click the New button -> click OK

Below is a public link to a video on charting.

Hi Chelsea,

When we connect to a data feed we import instruments and then create the charts. For IB what needs to be done to create the charts ?

Hello chinmaya122,

If the instrument is set up, use the steps from my previous post to open a new chart.

The NIFTY future is pre-configured in the NinjaTrader Instruments window when you download and install NinjaTrader.

Hi Chelsea,

Yes Nifty Futures instrument is already there. So once connected to TWS then Can I load the Nifty instrument in chart ? Do I need to map the instrument name in IB and Nifty Futures ?

Hello chinmaya122,

If you have a subscription to receive real-time data for the NIFTY future with Interactive Brokers, and NinjaTrader is connected to TraderWorkstation, yes, you can open a chart.
