Introductory mixed muse on bid/ask trading views

Like bigmike, I've paid my dues to the big bank guru's. I decided to fight back in 2005 and taught myself object oriented programming to write algo's in NeoTicker and Ninjatrader to beat the banksters. I have a special interest in analyzing money flow and went so far as to write some bid/ask delta code but haven't systematized it to my satisfaction. My interest has been renewed recently in how best to exploit bid/ask (especially that of the big traders) by the early success es-runner has demonstrated (33/36 winning days, avg 8 points per day) I'm told it is better to analyze bursts of small trades during the same second than simply track large trade market orders, since as of Oct a couple of years ago a change of exchange policy now represents a large trade that has been absorbed by small trades as a list of small trades, not one large trade, hence the need to analyze bursts of small trades during the same second. Zac at SharkIndicators told me this week that a friend of bigmike, RJ, wrote an indicator that looks at trade block size and that Gomi, another bikmike member wrote DOMCD, which he said is available on bigmikes. Do I need to be a premium member to access those? Where do I find them?

Intro

Hello everyone! This is my intro email, I've been very delinquent as I travel quite a bit and do not trade full time (but long to one day!)

If I may start with a question seeking some help.....

I have some bug in my Ninja script. I don't know where it is but I can't import any new script until I either find it and correct it or delete it.

I did download several indicators my first few days here...Gomi and ANApivotis/high low points..etc..

I tried to delete all of these (thinking I'll start over) but I can't delete any of them as I get error message stating the parts of these files are being referenced somewhere else.

Double checked my workspaces and I don't have any of these indicators "actively" working anywhere...

Any suggestions?

thanks!

Geoff

Did you try going directly to C:\Users\Trader\Documents\NinjaTrader 7\bin\Custom\Indicator and deleting them?

Glad to be here

Big Mike, thanks for the warm welcome. I am new to forums and don't really know the protocols but will read the

attached article for Beginners after my initial post. I am fairly new to trading but have been studying it intensley

over the last 3 years. I started off with a subscription to VectorVest and have been attending the local user group

since that time. I have also taken the Online Trading Academy training courses. I am a member of AfTA and try to

attend all of the monthly meetings. I have read many books on trading and look forward to learning and sharing

with the other forum members. I am a TradeStation user and am currently trying to learn Ninja Trader. This forum

was recommended to me by two different sources over the last week so I thought I better check it out!

Thank you for creating this venue for those of us interested in learning more about our chosen craft.

Cheers,

Cary

Hi Traders!

Came across this forum and decided to sign up. hopefully learn more about day trading and refine my strategy to become profitable.

I've been investing for 5 years now using Charles Schwab and recently decided to try day trading full time. I'm basically a scalper using lightspeed platform.

Hi Mike finally got around to post something I've been trading for many years and also blew up my account numerous times like many of us.

Because of your intro post things are changing. The one about sticking with the system and indicators that work for me, not changing things around, and looking for new one's, did it. I trade futures on the S+P and options on IWM and SPY.
I have a great system now and not changing it no matter what, it works.

However there is a question I would like to ask; what is the best technique or process to overcome fear of taking trades. I tend to talk myself out of many good trades especially the pullback trades this is the area I have trouble with.

I tend to pick the turns real well then get out because of a A turn but not being able to get back into the trend after the pull back to a B or a C.

So I tend to get out of my trade at targets instead of trailing stops, where there is a trend=line or a fib area and miss getting back in after a pullback, any help would be appreciated hope it's clear.

Oh and BTW thanks in advance for your answer. My First post ever anywhere.

Hey Iceman
Yes the best I found and use is Sling Shot Options.

It's a simple EOD system using a special type of bar and a short term MA. he has different systems as well as binary systems too. If you sign up use good MM and start off with small trades.
