Importing symbols into NinjaTrader

Today I found myself wanting to use NinjaTrader charts to view and analyze stock charts. I’m using Kinetick’s free end-of-day market data which works for my stock purposes. This provides data for all US stocks but if you haven’t imported symbol lists in NinjaTrader, you won’t be able to access the symbols in NinjaTrader.

Luckily this is a quick fix. NinjaTrader provides a mechanism to import stock symbol lists from text files. See the screenshot below. To save you some time, I’ve created NYSE and Nasdaq text files which are ready to import now.
