NinjaTrader charting question

    I am currently using IB w/QuoteTracker which has been flawless for me. The issue is that QT only saves 10 days worth of data. My question is how much data is saved on NinjaTrader?

    An infinite amount is stored on local hard drive.
  3. And vendors wonder why traders don't believe them. :D

    Sorry, I should have been more clear with the following response.

    NinjaTrader does not impose any restrictions on the amount of historical data that can be stored by NinjaTrader. The limitation imposed would be hardware related and directly proportionate to the available hard drive space available on the PC where NinjaTrader is installed.
  5. From my experience NT really is able to work with quite a lot of intraday historical data. I didn't try more than 3months of 1min charts, but am sure it can do more.

    Actually it was the reason I moved from QT. But NT still lacks some convenient features QT has, for example switching charting timeframes with a hotkey.
