need help !

HI traders
Fisrt of All I would like to thank Mike for this awesome forum , I love it , but I have never posted anything , I have trading ES since October 08 ( bad timing ! lol)
still trying to fing a setup that works for me , and I think I just did lately and would like some help automating it , it's a simple strategy that uses the HMA crossover , works good on Range bars ( I got this from Mike , thanks for introducing me to Range bars !! )
Ninja Trader actually comes with a sample MA crossover but it uses SMA 's and I found that HMA behave better , so I tried to change it but could not ( I am not a progammer ) but thought I tried my best knowledge ...
Can someone help me out , I can't afford to pay anyone yet , still on the sim and struggling to recover my losses
Thank you !
Warm Regards
Sonia

Hi Sonia

You don't need to be a programmer to build simple strategy such as the one you want. Try building it with Strategy Wizard first and from what I see it should suffice your needs at this stage.

I recommend you visit NinjaTrader Video Library first:
http://www.ninjatrader-support.com/HelpGuideV6/helpguide.html?VideoLibrary

Those videos which will help you create your crossover strategy are:
Strategy Wizard, and
Condition Builder (this actually instructs you how to create crossover strategy - simply instead of SMA use HMA!)

Good luck and believe me - it's not so hard after all!

Did you tinker with code of any other strategy or indicator?
It could be that NT won't allow you to compile new code until compiling problems with all indicators and strategies are resolved.

If you made any changes to other strategies please remove those changes or delete strategies that don't work completely before compiling the new one

Sonia,

try opening the SampleMACrossOver

tools/edit ninjascript/strategy

when it opens,

save as SampleHMACrossOver

change all the locations of "SMA" to "HMA"

i count 8 of them

then save and compile

let us know if it doesn't work

if it doesn't, copy your .cs file to your post

hope that helps
kirk
