Fat Tails,

I find your MACD Universal X4 indicator very valuable. Thank you for creating it.

I'm having an issue when trying to save it when closing NinjaTrader. A message appears stating: "indicator could not be serialized".

Thereafter, when I reopen NT, I have to manually attach the indicator to my chart.

Please provide any suggestions you may have for a fix.

Thank you and Best Regards,
Jim

@iwcjimbo:

I have recreated the situation that you have described and I could not find any problem, but the indicator did serialize correctly and was reproduced after a restart of NinjaTrader or when I had loaded the workspace.

This behaviour is not related to the indicator.

Please check first, whether your NinjaTrader installation is clean. Edit any indicator and compile. If there are any error message please remove all files that are mentioned in the error message.

Also try to

- delete chart templates and workspaces that use the MACDUniversalX4
- then uninstall the indicator or delete it from the indicator directory

Then restart NinjaTrader, import the indicator and recreate chart templates and workspaces.

Occasionally I have encountered a similar problem, I think it is a NinjaTrader bug or a problem with the .Net framework. If you cannot fix it, please contact me via private message.

Fat Tails,

The problem was resolved by simply editing the indicator (and all of its components) and compiling them, just as you suggested.

Thank you,
Jim

Request for suggested MACD Universal X4 period settings

Fat Tails,

I'm using your MACD Universal X4 indicator and loving it.

I'm currently using it to trade YM and NQ. I use a 5 minute chart and (once I enter a trade) a 1 minute chart.

The default period settings, as we know , are as follows:

Fast MA period: 12
Slow MA period: 26
Smoothing period: 9

Knowing what I'm trading and the chart time intervals I'm using, are there other period settings I should be considering or should I stay with the default settings?

Please let me know your thoughts.

Best Regards,
Jim

The default settings certainly depend on the moving average type selected. Best you try different settings and visually scroll through your chart.

Gerald Appel, who was one of the first to use the MACD, suggests the default setting (12,26,9) but also mentions different settings such as (19, 39, 9) for consolidating and (6, 19, 9) for trending markets.

Quoting 
...-> to make it easier to find ana-indicators

Hi Fat Tails,

Reading through a very long Cumulative Delta thread I saw reference to the anaDeltaVolume indicator that does not need recorded data. But cannot find it anywhere on futures.io (formerly BMT) for download (main or Elite). Also cannot find the invaluable anaLineAlerts indicator that I am using should it ever be updated/needed again.

Can you advise on these ana indicators. Is this thread the only source? And if so, have you discontinued those referred to above?

Many thanks.
Richard

@RichardHK: I have been experimenting with delta volume indicator, but I think I have not yet published them. The indicator uses upTick and downTick volume as a replacement for bid and ask volume. Some of Gomi's indicators also have this option.

If you look for ana-Indicators, please look in the download section of the forum.

-> If you wish to have a complete list of the indicators that I have posted in the download section, please select "Download/Indicators" from the forum menu, then select the SessionPivots V42 in the downloads. Next select the question mark on the upper right hand, see red mark below. You will then get a list of all indicators which I have uploaded to the download section.

-> To find the LineAlerts indicator, please go to the download section of the forum, then select NinjaTrader -> NinjaTrader 7 indicators -> L (see Filter above). You will easily find the Line Alerts indicator.

Indicator Update - Hourly Pivots

I had to update the hourly pivots, because it did not work with all datafeeds.

Here is the reason: During times when liquidity is low, it may happen that no transaction takes place during a full minute. Not all data feeds handle this situation in a similar way.

(1) some data feeds insert a minute bar which shows a single trick at the last price traded
(2) other data feeds insert nothing, leaving a blank space

With the second type of data feed an hour sometimes had less than 60 minute bars, and the indicator did not work properly. Therefore I have recoded it based on time intervals, which is the appropriate way of dealing with hourly pivots anyway.

The indicator is a genuine multi-timeframe indicator. The hourly pivots are calculated from a secondary bar series of 1-minute bars. For the sake of discretionary traders, I have allowed the indicator to repaint the lines back to the session start during the first minute of each hour (or other interval selected via indicator dialogue box). This will also avoid a different picture in modes COBC = false and COBC = true. Due to the repainting the indicator is not fit for use with an automated strategy. Please contact me, if you wish to use it for automated trading, as it will require a minor modification.

The indicator can be found 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.
6)

Indicator Update - True Strength Index


Following request by one of the users, I have added a histogram to the True Strength Index. The indicator can be found here:

https://futures.io/download/ninjatrader-7/indicators/924-download.html?view

Unlike the NinjaTrader default indicator, this version of the True Strength Index allows for double or triple smoothing.

For double smoothing just set the smoothing period to 1, for triple smoothing select a value larger than 1 for the smoothing period.
