Customise Your Data By...

Timestamps can be tailored to your needs.  Normally you will need exchange timestamps.  Some data suppliers such as IB timestamp at ‘end of bar’ EOB, whereas others may timestamp at ‘start of bar’ SOB.  Let Portara know your real-time supplier and we will provide your 1 minute Ninjatrader intraday data to suit.

Roll Series & Back-adjustments
Optionally, choose any roll series such as HMUZ or just accept the default.  E.g. You can elect to skip contracts such as with Crude Oil or Gold.  You choose…

You can opt to have your data back-adjusted  – which will apply the contract settle difference close-to-close on the date of your rolls, this being the industry standard, or

You can opt for a zero adjustment – which will simply clip the actual data together in a continuous stream without applying the settle difference, again, your coice…

Days From Expiry

Optionally, choose how many days from each contract expiry you would like to have your NinjaTrader intraday data rolled or, accept the default.

Nearest Future or Deferred Contracts

Optionally, choose  how many contracts forward you wish to begin your continuous data.  Useful with STIR’s and any proprietary trading needs you may have.

Session Times

Optionally, choose session times in which to exclude unwanted evening and nighttime data outside of your usual trading day.

Regular Trading Hours Data (RTH)

Now you may choose to have Regular Trading Hours Data for intraday or daily.  For instance you can have daily or intraday bars based on your own session times.  E.g. With The British Pound (All Sessions) you may wish to have your OHLC daily bars showing open at 0720 and close at 1400 with high and low between those timestamps.
