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.

-- Big Mike

@Big Mike,

Do you know HOW different NT8 will be from NT7? Will it be easy to modify NT7 indicators to work in NT8 or will we have to hire a programmer?

Reymond Deux said ; all previous indicator will work for nt8.

@Big Mike,

Do you know HOW different NT8 will be from NT7? Will it be easy to modify NT7 indicators to work in NT8 or will we have to hire a programmer?

I have a good idea, as would anyone who has watched all the NT8 webinars on futures.io (formerly BMT).

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.

Where did he say this?

The NT8 webinars on futures.io (formerly BMT) have all said and shown the contrary, unless I've lost my mind (always a possibility).

NT7 indicators will require modification to compile/import into NT8.

@Big Mike,

Do you know HOW different NT8 will be from NT7? Will it be easy to modify NT7 indicators to work in NT8 or will we have to hire a programmer?

I'm not @Big Mike (obviously), but I'll take a stab at this.

Ray has said that the familiar program procedures that we use, like OnBarUpdate or Initialize, will be replaced by another structure, but that the changes will not be extreme, and that most indicators will need only a minor reorganization -- however, all will need something. No NT7 indicator or strategy will run without changes in NT8. (He went through this in one of his latest webinars.)

Also, if you mainly use the documented features, Ninja will preserve most or all of the present method/property calls. So not much will need to be changed there, either.

However, a lot of indicators go under the hood to do things that are not available in the presently-supported, documented features. For example, I just did a little work with StepMA, a nice indicator that accesses ChartControl, the Windows Forms control that creates the charts, and which is undocumented. They are completely changing this basic paradigm in the new release, and nothing from Windows Forms, or any control developed for it, will continue in its present form. Any such indicator will need a bigger rewrite.

So if you are doing some fairly vanilla stuff that uses the presently documented properties and methods of existing classes, you will need to change the structure of your code, but it won't be a big deal, and much/many/all(?) of the property/method calls you presently use will be OK or nearly so. If your code is doing some of the fancy, undocumented stuff that many of the best programmers on futures.io (formerly BMT) and elsewhere have sometimes used, you will need to address the new programming interface to get the same result. That code will have to fundamentally change.

Ray also said that they will document essentially all of the new classes and features. I think this will make NT a lot easier to program for -- you won't have to find out the undocumented, undisclosed features that you want to use, because there won't be any....

This is a long answer, and I don't want to have overstepped by junping in here. So the short answer is: all indicators will need a rewrite, but it usually will not be a big deal for most non-programmers who have gotten a little familiarity with Ninja Script. Some indicators, namely all those that are using special and undocumented features in the present version, will be more involved.

Based on Ray's last webinar, I think that the process, even for the previously-undocumented stuff, will be easier than one might think, since he will publish essentially everything.

If any of this is not correct, I hope that @NinjaTrader or @Big Mike will provide a correction. But this is what I gleaned from his last webinar, and I think it's essentially what we presently know about it. (I'll watch the next webinar for more info....)

Bob.

Forum Reputation: Legendary

Hi @Big Mike, I noticed yesterday that my "Legendary" Forum Reputation had disappeared, although my number was (or had been) high enough.

Have the criteria changed? Maybe I'm back to being just a legend in my own mind again.

Bob.

Bob.

Criteria remain unchanged. I fixed a bug where some users were receiving the Legendary mark without first being a Market Wizard. You would still qualify for Legendary based on your current stats, once you qualify for Market Wizard.

I've made a change to our mail server that will hopefully improve deliverability of our emails.

One trade off, however, seems to be that if you submit a post to a large thread, it takes considerably longer to process all the subscription emails. It used to be instant (5ms) and now I am seeing response times of 200-400ms for big threads.

The issue only occurs on submission of a new post. It just means it will be slightly slower. But I want to leave this config in place for long enough to collect enough data to see if the new mail server configuration improves deliverability. I will go from there.

If you are kind enough, please check your emails from futures.io (formerly BMT) and let me know if the links are working and if they showed up in spam or not spam.

I've corrected the speed issue. So now just waiting to collect data to see if deliverables have improved.
