Welcome to futures.io.

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.

Trying to convert a strategy from EL to NS

Hi, I am trying to convert the MorningFade V2 strategy from the Battle of the Bots to NinjaScript to forward test myself but I don't know anything about EasyLanguage.
Most of it is pretty straightforward but a couple of details are still puzzling me.
If someone could offer some assistance I would appreciate it.

It's mostly this line:
VoltShort = K * StandardDev( Log( C of data2 / C[1] of data2 ), VoltShortPerod, 1 )
K is a variable and I get StandardDev and Log but what does "C of data2" and "C[1] of data2" mean?

A search through the forum led me to BigMike's explanation that said data1 was the order entry structure and data2 was the chart data (I think that's what he said anyway) but what is "C"? Is that shorthand for Close?

Thanks in advance for your time.

Futures Edge on FIO
Please keep in mind Battle of the Bots is Elite so don't post too much code in non-Elite areas.

C of data2 means closing price (Close[0] in ninja) of dataseries 2, as in a secondary dataseries on the chart. C[1] means same as Close[1] in ninja, close of prior bar.


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.
