Am I doing something wrong here?

This is happening because unique symbols having '&' and '-' are not readable by many TA software, including Ninja Trader 7.

To tide over this we have some additional symbols which have also been enabled for use with various other Technical Analysis Software, like Ninja trader 7.

For NIFTY-I, use NIFTY_I.

So for a stock symbol like BAJAJ-AUTO :

  • BAJAJ-AUTO - Will work in Amibroker 'as is' and in most other TA software also, but not in Technical Analysis Software NinjaTrader.
  • BAJAJ_AUTO - This symbol has been enabled for TA software like Ninja Trader which do not accept symbol which have '&' and '-' in the symbol name. Along with NinjaTrader, this symbol will work in all TA Software.
  • Other examples of duplicate unique symbols enabled are :- M&M + M_M, M&MFIN, M_MFIN
