"I want BloodHound!"

I started a new journal for BloodHound. I'm starting to really like it. I have a few things I like to share. Please checkout my journal, thanks!

To those that have posted so far in this thread, I want to remind everyone that @SharkIndicators is supplying the free BloodHound license in exchange for feedback on the product.

This is a journal challenge thread -- so please create and post to your journal here on FIO. Within your journal thread, you can post screenshots or just give general feedback on the BloodHound product. That's the deal!

I look forward to seeing peoples journals, or at the very least I think it's only fair that you post feedback about the BloodHound product in exchange for the license, even if you have no intention of creating or posting to a journal.

If you have questions about the product or need support to get it going, you can post in SharkIndicator's AMA thread here:

You can start a journal by posting a thread here:
https://futures.io/trading-journals/

This is correct, but to have your journal considered for the journal contest, you will also have to put a link to your journal in this thread. The journal can be a new one you start or an existing one, and can be in either the non-Elite or the Elite forum:

Non-Elite: https://futures.io/trading-journals/
Elite: https://futures.io/elite-trading-journals/

The terms of the free license do not require a trader to have a journal thread, nor to post a link here nor to enter the contest, but posting at least something about how you are using the free license would be a good thing to do:

Apologies for the misunderstanding. Have been laying low for a few given some old habits have resurfaced.

Mike _ beautiful thing what you're doing here. Thank you for letting us be a part of it and looking to help additionally.

This is by far one of the best tools for NT I have come across in my 28 months of trading. I was in the middle of a 30 day trial and was feeling overwhelmed with all it had to offer so this is a massive relief. Finding it helps reinforce existing rules or tighten sloppy ones since it forces you to examine them over and over. I am only beginning to scratch the surface of "coding" this to my system but thank y'all very much.

Sure.

(1) Decide whether you want to have your journal in the Elite section (only available to other Elite members) or the non-Elite (open to anyone.) Is there a reason to use one or the other? Depends on you, basically. You'll see both being used. Non-Elite will give you more potential readers, obviously. Elite members generally read posts in both sections. Putting it in the Elite sections will restrict it to Elite readership. If you're not sure, it can be changed by request to a moderator later, so don't sweat it.

(2) Go here for Elite: https://futures.io/newthread.php?do=newthread&f=42

or

(3) Go here for non-Elite: https://futures.io/newthread.php?do=newthread&f=16

Or, you can just go to the first page of futures.io and look in the list under "Trading Community," and select "Trading Journals" for non-Elite or, under "The Elite Circle," select "Elite Trading Journals." Drill down to the "New Thread" button in whichever you choose.

Fill in the fields and you're off to the races. If you want to have your journal considered for the current journal contest (coming to an end soon), put a link to it in a post this thread, the one you're reading now. You can see the contest rules in the first post in this thread. You don't need to be in the contest to use the Bloodhound offer, but if you take the software it would be a decent thing to give some feedback about your use of it in your journal.

Happy journaling.

Bob.

Hey everyone, thanks so much for participating in the journaling contest. It's been great to see the systems you have built, and many of you provided some excellent feedback - both positive and constructive - to help us continue to improve BloodHound and BlackBird.

The journal contest is over. But if you're here after it ended, be sure to download the free 30-day trial of BloodHound. The important thing is that you actually get started building systems, making mistakes, and getting better as a trader.

If you have ANY questions, don't hesitate to reach out to us.

I hope we find more ways to serve you over the coming weeks and months. Until then have a great day and stay well!

I noticed Raven is only running a single day of 30 days of history I have if I have it close on EOD. But I thought that was just to close trades during that session and restart next period. Is there a way to get it to do that or do I have to let it run across sessions?

Thanks,

JAlley

Hi!

I have a suggestion to @SharkIndicators and I will try to explain here. Hope I can express myself correctly as english is not my "default" language..

I would like to see the capability of BH retrieve data from the signals it generates....

Hi @MrTrader,

I'm just putting a note here as a placeholder for your post, which I am moving to the Shark Indicators "Ask Me Anything" thread. Your question is a good one, but it really belongs in the main Shark Indicators thread, rather than in this one, which is just about the journal challenge. It is much better to have this kind of technical Bloodhound questions asked in that thread.

I hope that you will have your concerns addressed to your satisfaction there.

Bob.

Glad to see so much activity I need to create a script to calculate the winners of the $1500 store credit at Bloodhound. Once done, I'll post results here.

For any further follow-ups regarding SharkIndicator's, please use their AMA thread:



Congrats again for all who participated.

Guys,

I've been working on the code to handle the winners of the event. It's more complex than anticipated...

I almost had it done today... but not quite.

I am trying to create something that can continue to exist going forward, and that is public-facing meaning that the Challenge information can be shared on a real-time and on-going basis, as we continue to do these events in the future. That is what is taking me a bit longer.

The first step will just be the results for this contest, and then I'll clean it up and put it in place for the future challenges. I have the raw data already, I just need to double check everything.

Thanks for your patience.

Mike

I appreciate everyone's patience as I wrote new code to account for the new Challenge.

Congratulations to the top three winners: @Mich62, @hen322, and @vmodus!

Thanks to @SharkIndicators, these three members will be receiving a $500 store credit at the Shark Indicators store to purchase whatever they wish! I will reach out to you via Direct Message in a moment to arrange for those prizes.

I hope to continue to see more journals in the future... I trust everyone found the process useful!

Thanks @Big Mike, also for making it possible for like-minded people from all over the world to connect, communicate, learn and grow together.

Thanks to all who participated in my journal and motivated me with their thanks. And thanks to @SharkIndicators for their sponsoring.

I did not use SharkIndicators BloodHound for the reason that I am a price action trader and don't use indicators (as a signal). Like almost every newbie I spent a whole lot of time investigating different systems, methods and indicators and really don't want to go back this path.

I think BloodHound is an unique product and can be of great use because it enables one to connect different indicators in all kind of ways to one system which one can test and automate (and thereby passing the hard to overcome human emotions). It's an area I have not explored before and I don't know if it will bring me further from where I am now or whether it will slow me down in my development. For now I know (also thanks to my journal) where I need to improve and I am focusing on that and nothing else. Maybe in the future when the time is right (and I have more time) I will take a look at it because I am curious if I would be able to automate a couple of setups I had some success with in the past. But as said, for now is not the time for me.

So now comes the question what to do with the $500 storage credit?

What I would like to do, if possible and allowed by Mike, is to sell the $500 credit to someone who really can, and will, use it. Maybe there are more people interested? Then it will go to the highest bidder by end of July. The pay will go to Mike's Oasis Americas foundation to help those in need in these turbulent times.

At the end of the month Mike will inform the highest bidder and will take care of the further processing. I hope I don't break any rules here. If for whatever reason my proposal gets turned down then just let me know and I will be okay with it.

If Mike approves and you are interested in the SharkIndicators $500 store credit then please place your bid in this thread. Please only bid what you really are prepared to pay. Keep in mind you're helping those in need. Thank you.

Hi @Mich62,

I appreciate the gesture. So basically you want to donate your $500 store credit to charity, specifically Oasis Americas, which is the charity my wife and I own. We are currently working on feeding the most hungry here in Ecuador. You want to auction it off to highest bidder, with that money going to Oasis.

I will ask if @SharkIndicators is ok with this. Please understand, they may not be. But that is for them to decide. I picture it working as so:

- Establish the highest bidder and price
- Ask that person to pay Oasis Americas via our PayPal link (credit cards, tax deductible)
- That way I can confirm the payment, and Shark can transfer the store credit to the new owner

Just a note. I updated the results post thanks to @bobwest pointing out an oversight. I updated my code to eliminate moderators from being eligible, so it removed my own entry (previously ranked 8th so didn't effect outcome). This is why total journals dropped from 22 to 21 after the edit.

Hi guys,

I am cross-posting the below message. It was originally posted in this thread:



This Journal Challenge event and the Charity Drive are related, please read below.

All of us have been affected by COVID-19. But here in Ecuador, things are truly desperate. The number of homeless and/or hungry families on the street has skyrocketed in recent weeks.

The government is unable to provide any resources to assist these people. The government has stopped paying all salaries to nearly every government entity. There are no pensions being paid. There are no medical benefits being honored.

All typical commerce is almost entirely shutdown, in fact the country has been in complete lockdown where there is a curfew and very strict restrictions on when and who can leave their house.

There is no place for many people to find work, and some of them simply are not surviving and are falling through the cracks. The cracks, in fact, have become enormous.

We're going to help

For the month of June, futures io is running a Journal Challenge contest. What I want to do is tie in with that event, and donate ten meals for every new journal that is created/posted to on FIO during June. This will be donated by my wife and I, on behalf of the members of futures io. If you wish to help personally, please see below.

So at the end of June, we will calculate how many journals participated in the event, and then we'll purchase the food and distribute it to those that are most in need (on the streets).

My wife and I started a 501(c)3 non-profit charitable organized called Oasis Americas last year. This is our charity specifically for helping those in need, both in North America and South America.

We will be accepting additional donations from anyone on futures io that wishes to donate towards this cause. All donations are tax deductible, and will go entirely towards the purchase of food for those in need, in this case to those here in Ecuador that we can safely reach and handout meals to.

We will follow-up in this thread to provide updates on the amount of food we've donated from the journal event, as well as additional donations received.

If you wish to donate, you can do so here using PayPal:



Thank you,
Mike

Following up on the Charity aspect of this Journal Challenge.

So there were 21 journals as part of the challenge, which means my wife and I committed to donating 210 meals (21 x 10) to the most in need. However, we decided to increase that to 1,000 meals -- so we purchased another 1,000 cans of tuna, which was made possible by your journals!

This is in addition to the huge amount of money and meals already raised in the main thread by you guys:



The entire breakdown is in that thread, please check it out. Let's keep the charitable part of this event in the charity thread.

Someone DM'd me asking about the counts. Let me explain..




The counts labeled as (1) are for the contest month (June) in the thread that was linked/shared in the challenge thread.

The counts from (2) are from our Link Expansion tool which shows the total posts and thanks in the entire thread, nothing specific to this challenge event.

If you look at the top example, the fact that the number of thanks are equal in (1) and (2) are just coincidence. Because only posts made within the contest month are considered.

Hope that clears things up. If not, please let me know.

Yes we'd be happy to do this, according to Mike's description above. I assume it's okay to use this thread for the bids? Whoever is the highest bidder by the end of July, then Big Mike can confirm the payment was made to the charity, and we will arrange a store credit for $500.

As of this moment, we are considering the store credit is being transferred to Big Mike (from Mich62). So from here forward, it will be Big Mike's final say who gets the credit, according to the bids posted here.

Thanks guys, let's get a good donation for Oasis!

OK, thanks to this person for pointing out an error in our formula.

I've updated the result post again. None of the top three rankings changed, but you'll see that the number of thanks/posts slightly changed. This was because of formula error that has been fixed now.

Appreciate the help. Please let us know if you find any other issues with the script. Plan to make this automated going forward, and to provide real-time updates to the Event Thread without being held up waiting for me... so important to iron out any bugs!

Very good, thank you @SharkIndicators for being open to the idea.

I'll let @Mich62 take it from here. Whenever it's done (end of July is a good date like you said) then I'll step in again.

We are approaching end of month and are now going into the last week.

If someone is interested he should place his bid now and not wait till end of month. If no further bids are placed within the next days I assume people are not interested and I will end the auction.

The highest bid at this moment stands at $50.

Next bids need to be at least $25 higher than previous bid to prevent people are going to bid $1 higher.

I don't want this to turn out in a last second contest.

$175

And the winner is @casey44

As I wrote earlier on I don't want this to end in a last second contest. The last bid dates from July 28th. Everybody had sufficient time and opportunity to place a bid and so it's time to wrap it up now. I am very pleased with the highest bid of $175 which should be donated to the charity fund of Mike and his wife.

Congratulations to casey44 for winning the $500 SharkIndicators Store Credit. A big thank you for your generous bid! I wish you good luck and good trading with your purchase. I am sure you'll use the credit well.

@Big Mike will contact you and let you know how to proceed from here. He will also make sure you will receive the $500 store credit.

A special thanks to Mike and @SharkIndicators for making this possible. Thanks to all for participating. Be well and trade well.

Well hot dog, it sounds like we have a winner! A great thanks to @Mich62 for coordinating this, and playing a role in adding $175 to Mike's charity war chest.

We will await word from Big Mike to confirm the payment was made to the charity, and we will then reach out via DM to the winner.

On a side note, mostly directed to the winner: I would recommend you hold onto that store credit until mid-August. We will be hosting Shark Week, a weeklong webinar series with members of the community (Aug 10-14), which will finish with our presentation on BloodHound. This will come with a sale offer that we only make twice a year. I don't mean to sound promotional; just want to ensure the store credit gets as much value for the winner as possible.

Thanks again guys, hope you have a wonderful day.
