Coinbase Connector Issue

We found that the date for market data from Coinbase connection is always in English format. But Ninja chart time is in local computer date format according to your regional settings. For example, 03.06.2021 (March 6rd) in English date format will be Jun 3rd in your local time format for European regional settings. The correct date notation must be 06.03.2021 for Europe. So because of internal filtering, live Level 1 data (those from the ‘future’) are not coming to MZpack order flow indicators.

You might see the following picture – no live plots from indicators or price marker is not moving at all.

To resolve the issue set your regional settings to English (USA) from Windows Control Panel. Then restart NinjaTrader.
