Welcome to futures.io.

Welcome, Guest!

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.

Powerlangage and Currentbar

In several studies of MultiCharts,
There is the following condition: Currentbar > number (1, 2, 3 in most of the cases)

Here is an example in the RSI LE
condition1 = Currentbar > 1 and var0 crosses over OverSold ;

There is no such condition in a lot of other signals...
So I do not understand the point to add a such condition. It works with and without the condition with a short period (1). I'm sure i'm missing something...

So why add a such condition? Is it really interesting? If yes? How to know the number of bar to specify

In NinjaTrader you have to check the CurrentBar count if you are looking at a indexed DataSeries value, because it will throw an exception if you make a request for an index that doesn't exist yet.

In MultiCharts as far as I know, it will not throw an exception under the same conditions, so my best guess would be just so that the first plot is 'accurate', or possibly to avoid a division by zero issue which will cause an exception in MultiCharts.


Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
