View Full Version : Mixing Index and Futures Data from different vendors
07-11-2007, 09:56 AM
I'm using ZenFire for my data feed, but I have a subscription to Open Tick as well. I can't find the NYSE Tick ($TICK in some data feeds) or the NYSE Advance Decline line (ADVDEC) in some data feeds. If I can't get these indexes from ZenFire, is it possible to get them from Open Tick and add them to their own charts? If so, how would one do that? I've tried creating new instruments in the instrument manager for both of these but I can't get them to stay there when I close the instrument manager.

With Zen-Fire only Futures are supported, Indices aren't. OpenTick supports Indices and the $TICK is set up by default in NinjaTrader.
The NYSE Advance/Decline is also set up in the Instrment Manager, only you need to enter a symbol map in the Instrument Editor under the Misc tab.
Also check your version. I have version 6.0.1000.3 and both Indices are listed in my instrument manager.
Let me know if you are able to get the Indices up and running.
