Why is your NinjaTrader login failed?

If you can’t log in to your NinjaTrader account, there might be an issue in the path between your computer and the appropriate servers. Another common reason is when NinjaTrader is blocked by other programs.

Some software that can prevent NinjaTrader to access is anti-virus, firewalls, or spyware. 

In some cases, you should check whether your router/modem has built-in software that stops the connection.

NinjaTrader user and password incorrect: How to fix? 

There are 2 possible reasons for this problem:
  • Account confusion: In case you have multiple credentials, please verify and confirm that your username/password combination is correct.
  • Improper upper or lower case: NinjaTrader usernames and passwords are case-sensitive. If you let your Caps Lock turned ON or mistakenly use the incorrect case for your login credentials, you won’t be able to log in.
