Welcome to

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.

Ninjascript Optimizations

In the downloads section I'm seeing "optimized" versions of some indicators. I'm curious, what optimization foo did you apply? What are generally accepted practices for well-optimized indicators and strategies written for Ninja Trader that people are employing? Perhaps a list or summary of such tips would be helpful. I personally have never experienced the feeling that my indicators or strats were too slow, but everything I run it on has quad core CPUs.

There is a thread about Ninjascript Optimization

Start here

Then backtrack until you see the posts by Richard, who is Richard Todd of the website.

This all started after I read an article there:

RWT-004 :: Move the Markets

Great article, I wish more people would take a few minutes to learn and apply this information. It's not complicated and makes a lot of sense.

Richard is an outstanding programmer.

Moderator Note
I'm going to close this thread as I consider it a duplicate.

Please direct follow-ups to that thread.


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.
