I would like to try to attempt to code some of the NT code in TradeStation EasyLanguage. Can some trader that uses Ninja Trader help me out by posting the NT code for the IchiCloud in a text file, including any "function calls"? I would also need the parameter input settings too. Thanks for any help that can be provided.

check out https://futures.io/elite-circle/11130-want-your-easylanguage-indicator-created-free.html#post127981 - I have posted the IchiCloud indicator and also a ZigZagUTC indicator.

Cheers,

Dan

thanks for the free trading room today! It was great to see a losing day today because it shows your method is not fool proof due to a loss of $400 in Sim mode as shown on your chart trader.

Having a room to show your live trading will be great as serve as a FORWARD test of your system to see if, in fact, it is a viable long-term solution--considering you've only been trading it for a few short months.


it appears highly disrespectful, your comments, and disposition, as expressed in the above quoted comment

Charles, doesn't have to prove or display anything, to anyone, at anytime, nor do you, nor do I

In fact, have you taken time to clearly explain your approach?, or does it get easy to throw dispersion from the free seats?, as your comments demand.

If in fact Charles were a charlitan hawking some paid system for some monthly subscription, perhaps your demands, made in a private, not public manner might be appropriate, barely

but for someone to have garnished the appreciation of most participants and readers of this thread to now garnish such disregard (to put it mildly) lacks reason. Perhaps you have or can find another thread that might respond to your demands, what with the subscription fee and the buy-in having been so expensive...

oh, exactly how much was charged?, to learn this method that he has clearly outlined on this thread?
oh, exactly how much was asked to be paid, just to participate in this newly formed room?
oh, exactly how much was demanded for the combination and adjustments to the free indicators, just to get started?

hmmmm

Kronster the kronie, i neither follow your brash and angered retaliation of my post nor does your overall statement follow my sentiment. Nor is should you be evoking such personal feelings and resentment.

I fully appreciate the candidness of charles and his great system and we are quite fortunate to have him offer his knowledge, experience and free service for us all to test it out in real time as the market moves via his trading room, which serves as a great way to see how his method in reality works. I am cheering for him and the method.

My post or comment demands nothing from him. If it did demand anything then no one is subject to fulfill anything. Like if I 'demand' one million dollars from you--so what it's a demand that you will easily ignore. Furthermore, I feel if, as traders, we are highly bothered by someone's comments and are quick to defend and cause such internal anxiety then perhaps such lack of discipline does not behoove the profession of trading. Because if the market slams you down a little what you gonna do--fight back and revenge trade?

I don't think so, Charles is very helpful to improve our trading efficiency, we talked in the trading room, he never mentioned selling something, everything is free and for discussion only.

Picking an exit strategy.

Today's pa wasn't all that conducive to big profits imo. But I think the chop areas and trend areas where clearly defined by the rules today.

Since I've been trading this method, I've come up with 2 mechanical ways to exit my trade. Both of these methods have in common the goal to get my stop to BE+1 ASAP using the SuperTrend. Once this happens, the management then changes for each of these.

Each method is different. Method 1 is faster, and is less likely to achieve the full target, but will also have more trades with profit somewhere between BE+1 and 21 tics. Method 2 is a bit slower, and is more likely to have more BE+1, but will achieve the full profit target more often.

I've been having some pretty good days, but I have been cheating myself by mixing the two at random. I went back and checked the last 2 weeks of trading, and I would have been better served by simply picking Method 1 or Method 2 (I have these in another sheet I am still putting together). What is happening is that I am more or less averaging in the worst results of the two exit methods into my trades.

Here is how yesterday and today would have played out. The column titled "Today" and "Yesterday" are the actual trades taken. And then Method 1 and Method 2.

Not that the last 2 weeks is a large enough sample size to definitively say one way or the other, but I intend to track both of the management strategies over the coming weeks. There were some other days that were more obvious than these as well.

Below is the comparison of today and yesterday, and a ss of today's trades for me.

Is there any way to backtest them, to get a clearer picture faster then forward testing?

Not that I can think of. Since the entries are pretty discretionary, I can only do backtesting via pencil/paper on the trades that I took REAL TIME. Since the entries are the same no matter what.

The only thing I can think of, would be to come up with a 'generic' entry signal, and then I could write a script with the exit managements I'm using since they both rely on quantifiable indies.

But that of course wouldn't be very accurate, it would just be a test of which exit signal provides the better characteristics BASED ON THAT GENERIC SIGNAL. Which might be somewhat useful I suppose?

So I can't really think of anyway to do it
