The community is one of the friendliest you will find on any subject, with members going out of their way to help others. Some of the primary differences between futures io and other trading sites revolve around the standards of our community. Those standards include a code of conduct for our members, as well as extremely high standards that govern which partners we do business with, and which products or services we recommend to our members.

At futures io, our focus is on quality education. No hype, gimmicks, or secret sauce. The truth is: trading is hard.

With futures io, you can find honest trading reviews on brokers, trading rooms, indicator packages, trading strategies, and much more. Our trading review process is highly moderated to ensure that only genuine users are allowed, so you don’t need to worry about fake reviews.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading sites:
  • We are here to help. Just let us know what you need.
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive in our community.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendors advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, we can help you find it.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

Collection of nuances & issues for developing trading strategies

This will be a collection of nuances and "sticky wickets" to be aware of when developing a trading strategy in Ninja Trader. Please feel free to contribute anything you come across personally or in the NT and BigMike forums or anywhere else. Please attach images that demonstrate the issue whenever possible.

I'll make it a sticky so it doesn't get "lost" down the chat pages.

Realtime trades are paired in the sequence of their timestamps and not by entry/exit names

If you are managing your trade on a smaller time frame you can do a few things:

EnterLong(1, DefaultQuantity, "myLong")

Where the 1 will force it into BarsArray[1].

In the Initialize section add the line

Add(PeriodType.Range, 1)

Using range 1 instead of tick 1 is much more efficient and will still manage the trade every 1 tick of price movement. Helpful for trailing stops or etc.
