  2. Karen,
    When will ZenFire be able to offer 90+ days of historic data for us swing traders?

    NinjaTrader stores the ZF data as a courtesy to its users. Though they have more than 90 days of data, NT 6.5 makes it difficult to view. NT 7 does a much better job of making the data easy to access.
    Do currently trade on Zen-Fire?
    Shoot me an email at if you have any other questions.
