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 donít need to worry about fake reviews.

Teach'm How to Fish

Here is an Idea:

Quite a number of great and generous coders here will take whatever is thrown at them and will write a Ninja code for it. Many others don't simply have a clue about programing and fail and get discouraged in the process of trial and error. I frankly don't know how some of great guys like Fat Tails and others find the time to contribute so much to these requests for code development. Also, I don't know If there have been seminars at futures.io (formerly BMT) on a primer for coding NT7 (other than BM video), but 1 or 2 seminars on the basic C# structure, syntax, objects, and steps to consider for writing NT scripts will go a long way to teach non-coders enough to fish for themselves. Maybe there is a shark out there to catch. As an alternative, maybe this information can be presented systematically in a Sticky thread.

I'm working with another futures.io (formerly BMT) member to do an educational NinjaScript webinar in Feb. I'll announce the details in the Upcoming Webinars thread later.

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)

Microsoft has some great free tools and online content available. Take a look here:

Development for Beginners | Training, Videos, Tools, Resources, Learning | MSDN

Yes it sucks that there are high school kids who can outcode most of us, but get over it .

Visual Studio 2010 Express C# is free. While it won't help you directly with Ninja it is a good tool to get you learning basic coding. Its availble here: Microsoft Express Downloads - Visual Studio Express and SQL Server Express

All that is free.

If you want to spend money I'm a fan of the Head First books over the For Dummies books when you are exploring something new for the first time.

That might all be overkill if you are "only" coding things for Ninja Trader but if you have the time and the extra HDD capacity available between your ears it is good stuff to learn.
