When trying to import, it failed as Ninja says it has programming errors that must be resolved before it can be imported. What do I do now??

mmather, what version did you import and what version of NT are you running?

Such an error is related to an existing indicator or strategy already on your system, and not the file being imported (most likely).

There are steps you can take to troubleshoot, but you should contact NT directly for hand holding.

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.

For the two members experiencing problems with the Piersh GO, you might look at MoGo (prounced mojo):

MoGo

It's a good alternative.

I am sorry, I've never used it and don't know if it works in NT7.

sefstrat has used it extensively, that is where I heard about it from. You might drop him a PM asking him to check this thread when he has a minute. Otherwise, you can beg Piersh again for help, or contact the author of MoGo

Actually I thought about this one for a second longer -- I don't think the zip is importable, it's a normal Windows setup archive. Just open the zip manually and run the installer.

Well, the strat seems to boot up fine in the optimizer but only the default one will actually optimize. Please see attached pics. Any thoughts?

Thanks.

hi, sorry for the delay.

i had a major disk crash on my main machine (steer clear of RAID0) and it's taken a while to get my NinjaTrader/development environment back on line...

i've just uploaded v10 which should fix the problem you're seeing. see post#1 in this thread.

Sorry Piersh but if I try to download the latest file I get only version 1.09. Or is it only the name you have forgotten to change?
