Welcome to

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.

Thanks, have not forgotten this - the quiz window is still open in my browser all this time. Just too busy lately.

The list is good, now I also need to spend time working on some chart markup as well.


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.

Hi Redratsal

I was looking in a site about Bollinger Bands and they use the Intraday Intensity Oscillator that I beleive it is very good indicator. Do you know how to code it for Ninja Trader?

Risk questions

Hi Mike,

I stumbed across this thread and think it's a great idea (please can I have Fat Tails on my team!)

I would like to see some questions on risk.

Explain what mutiples of R is and how would you calculate it?
(R is short for Risk and is simply the amount of money risked on a trade. Multiples of R can be used to determine profit targets or as a metric to assess returns relative to average risk over a sequence of trades.)

What is Risk of Ruin?
(An estimate of the chances you will blow your account given historic payoff ratio, win ratio and % of capital risked per trade)

How would you calculate Payoff Ratio?
(Average winner$/Average loser$)

How would you calculate Expectancy?
((Win % * Av. Win) - (Loss % * Av. Loss))

What is the purpose of Monte Carlo testing?
(not a single answer to this one, but my take would be: understand the likely boundaries of maximum drawdown, max loss runs)

know thyself
