Adding a score graph to your NinjaTrader chart

As you know, I like to score trades. Say you measure 10 different things, and maybe some have more weight than others, then you arrive at a total score to help you decide how to trade.

I usually just output the score in text form, but I wrote a quick way to graphically illustrate it.

if (score > 0)
{
//infotext = " LONG: ";
int x = 0;
while (x < score)
{
infotext += "▓"; // alt-178
x++;
}

infocolor = Color.CornflowerBlue;
}

if (score < 0)
{
//infotext = " SHORT: ";
score = score-score-score; // turns a negative score to a positive one
int x = 0;
while (x < score)
{
infotext += "▓"; // alt-178
x++;
}
infocolor = Color.Maroon;
}

//if (score == 0)
// infotext = " FLAT:";

int y = 9; // maximum score
while (y > score)
{
infotext += "░"; // alt-176
y--;
}

DrawTextFixed("Info", infotext, TextPosition.BottomRight, Color.White, new Font("Arial", 8, FontStyle.Bold), infocolor, infocolor, 8);


So in practice this is what it looks like:

(flat)

Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).

(long, mid-score like 5 out of 10)

Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).

(short, high score 9 out of 10)

You might be seeing this on my future charts. As with most everything, I am still tweaking it!

Hello Mike,
I wanted to thank you for inviting me to you VIP forum. I saw the system you were building for yourself and I was very impressed in what you were doing. I sorry to see that you are killed your project you were working on though. I this indicators that you had on your project that I was interested in downloading for myself and wanted to know where I could find it at or if it somewhere where I could download it from. I see that you have it available for making it into a code but im not to familiar with programing. It would be greatly appreciated if you could please point out to me were I could download the Score Card indicators that you have.

Thanks.
Mel

Mel,

If you want me to do some custom work on this for you, go to the Custom Programming forum and create a thread with your requirements. Otherwise there is nothing I can do at this time, like you said I don't use this code anymore and don't have a working model of it to release. It would require reprogramming it to your specifications.

Please use the Custom Programming thread if you have any questions.

Mike

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)
