The action of reloading all historical data would cause the charts to live update again!
Further to my earlier posting I have just loaded 15 FX daily charts and can confirm that none of them were initially live updating at 2am US Eastern time (I run my PC on US Eastern).
I have sent the log and trace files multiple times. I then reloaded all historical data and they then started to live update!
I then shut down Ninja Trader and restarted and once again the daily charts would not live update when the FXCM data was connected.
I then shut down Ninja Trader and restarted and once again the daily charts would not live update when the FXCM data was connected. Yo can open up chart trader on a daily chart look at the bid an ask and clearly see the daily bar is not at or near the bid and ask on any currency pair that has moved since the close at p.m.

In both cases above the live data comes from FXCM but for reasons unknown the realtime behaviour of daily charts is affected by the choice of the historical data source Connections and click "configure".
Select your FXCM connection in the lower left box and check if 'Ninja Trader historical data server' is enabled. Disconnect/reconnect FXCM and check if you receive realtime data in the daily chart.
I am not sure if my issue is identical to FXMIKE's but there is certainly still an issue with daily charts driven by FXCM only data. An investor could potentially lose all or more than the initial investment.
FMtrader, Will you check your charts on Sunday or Monday evening after p.m. You will find that if you reload historical data charts wont update unless it's sometime after p.m.. Risk capital is money that can be lost without jeopardizing ones financial security or lifestyle.
