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.

Cycle Based Indicator - Help!


I thought maybe somebody in this forum could help me accomplish my objective.

I am trying to make the indicators I usually use adaptive to the current cycle. What I am think could work is using the dominant cycle as input in the period field of my standard indicators. However what I am missing is the formula, or even better the Ninjatrader code to identify the dominant cycle. Does anybody have a cs. file or the code to share with me that identifies the dominant cycle? Anybody familiar with cycle analysis should know what I am talking about.

My idea comes from this book Cybernetic Trading Strategies: Developing a Profitable Trading System with ... - Murray A. Ruggiero - Google Books pag 110-112

Thanks for your help

Place to start:

1. Top right of page, click search
2. Click 'attachments'
3. Keyword: cycle

Many, many indicators here.


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.
