Hello zooinek,

Thank you for your post.

There is a specific format for data that will successfully import into NinjaTrader. The error you are receiving indicates that the data does not conform with the standard format.

The first thing is that the file must be a .txt file. Also it must be formatted as detailed in the following link.
