This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

I've been sim trading using Ninja Trader with Mirus ZenFire for 8 days using Boomerang, Trade Bias, ForceIndex, Risk Manager and Ultimate Trailing Stop indicators. Still adjusting but the Ultimate Trailing Stop which can use a variety of indicators, i.e. Bollinger, ATR is default set to 3 ATR. That's what I've been using but noticing, as you have that this might not be a wide enough stop. I'm new to futures (10 days) and still feeling my way around. I trade the following markets: 6E, CL, CG, NQ, TF. I use the trailing stop to follow the up trend when I'm in the trade. I found keeping my sell limit stop one trailing stop back from the recommended trailing stop when the instrument is running is a good idea. Of course you have to watch it as it's moving.

I'm still fighting getting up at 2:45AM US EST to trade the London Opening. If you're using NT, I'd suggest you do the Market Replay after hours to practice and refine your boomerang trading skills. I've also looked at the Emini Watch indicator videos but for now I'm going to "dance with the girl I brung to the dance" and concentrate on Boomerang. One variant that Matt Bowen uses (he developed the risk manager and works for Indicator Warehouse) is using the GMMA in lieu of the trade bias lines in the boomerang. He doesn't scalp as close as Mohan (the developer) does apparently. For what it's worth.

Be interested in hearing how you're going.
