      1. The plugin in buggy. I tried to connect with NimbleNT. It worked last night but now it crashes my Ninjatrader 8 while opening. Can not even open ninjatrader to disable the globaldatafeed connection.

        1. Possibly you would tried to import all the NSE FNO symbols in Ninjatrader 8. Select only the required symbols. Avoid importing more than 1000 symbols as this could affect your ninjatrader 8 performance if you are importing all the 40,000 plus symbols in NSE FNO segment

  1. Sir the plugin is not available at the below link provided by you . please provide the fresh linl:

    Download NinjaTrader8-NimbleNT plugin : Download Plugin (supports NinjaTrader 8.0.3.1).
