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) Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.
