  1. Hi,

    Can someone tell me whether NinjaTrader support charts in subminute timeframe such as 1 second, 10 seconds, etc.? If so, which datafeed I need?

    Yes it does. Please see the following Help Guide page in particular, the "Understanding time based bars" section for additional detailed information.
  4. I am currently using IB data feed for NInja and using their tick data. What I am finding out is that I am unable to use any historical data from IB and I have to let the data build before my tick charts start to form. Is there anything that can be done to fix this or I am doing something wrong.

    IB does not support historical tick data thus you are not doing anything wrong. You can supplment your IB feed with a service such as to provide historical tick data.
