    Hello Newtrader101,

    Thanks for your post.

    To use the Playback window you could follow the steps below. Note that the number of steps taken depends on exactly what you are wanting to do.
    • Left-click on 'Connections' in the Control Center
    • Select 'Playback'.
    • In the Historical Data window that appears, download historical data or Market Replay data if needed. Then, click 'Continue'.
    • The Playback window will appear. Select the 'Market Replay' or 'Historical' option in the Playback window depending on the data you are testing with.
    • Set your Start Date, End Date, and Playback speed (1x, 10x, 100x, etc) in the Playback window.
    • Open a Chart window for the instrument you are testing by going to New > Chart in the Control Center.
    • If you want to go to a specific time/date, right-click in the Playback window and select 'Go to'.
    • Set your Date and Time in the 'Go to' window and click OK.
    • Click the play button in the Playback window to play the data.
    There are no quicker options available for using the Playback connection.

    See this help guide page for more information about working with the Playback connection: https://ninjatrader.com/support/help...connection.htm

    Let me know if I may assist further.

      I have followed your steps in order to load data and back test. The process still takes a long time to load. This process took from 4:37 PM -to 5:11 PM--34 minutes in total in order to just begin the back testing session.

      I had to take the 23 steps below which lasted for 34 minutes in total to load the chart and its data.

      Is there any way to shorten this? If I could select the date, time, chart and data all in one step, that would be much preferable.

      Step 1: (‎10/‎17/‎2023 4:37:33 PM) User left click on "Connections (text)" in "Control Center - Accounts"
      Step 2: (‎10/‎17/‎2023 4:37:35 PM) User left click on "Playback Connection (text)"
      Step 3: (‎10/‎17/‎2023 4:37:40 PM) User left click on "NinjaTrader.Gui.Data.HdmNode (tree view item)" in "Historical Data"
      Step 4: (‎10/‎17/‎2023 4:37:42 PM) User left click on "MES 06-23 (text)" in "Historical Data"
      Step 5: (‎10/‎17/‎2023 4:37:46 PM) User left click on "Continue (text)" in "Historical Data"
      Step 6: (‎10/‎17/‎2023 4:41:59 PM) User left click on "Playback (window)" in "Playback"
      Step 7: (‎10/‎17/‎2023 4:42:02 PM) User left double click on "< (button)"
      Step 8: (‎10/‎17/‎2023 4:42:03 PM) User left double click on "< (button)"
      Step 9: (‎10/‎17/‎2023 4:42:03 PM) User left click on "< (button)"
      Step 10: (‎10/‎17/‎2023 4:42:05 PM) User left click on "< (button)"

      Step 12: (‎10/‎17/‎2023 4:42:10 PM) User left click on "15 (text)"
      Step 13: (‎10/‎17/‎2023 4:42:13 PM) User left click on "Playback (window)" in "Playback"

        Hello Newtrader101,

        Thanks for your notes.

        Unfortunately, no there would not be a quicker way to accomplish this.

        You would need to follow the steps listed in post # 2 when using the Playback connection.

        Here is the help guide page detailing working with the Playback connection: https://ninjatrader.com/support/help...connection.htm
