Zondor suggests....

  • A naming convention for indicators that causes them to be logically grouped in the list of indicators that appears when indicators are added to a chart. Use a military style naming convention with names containing group categorization followed by spaces and punctuation characters in the this. Name property. For example, all Moving Averages would be grouped together because the this.Name property for every one would begin with the string "MA, ". All Oscillator names would begin with "Oscillator, " etc (See attachment)
  • The option of reporting trades either as reported by the exchange, or of re-bundling as one trade those transactions that happen within 1/100 of a second of each other.
  • The ability in the FormatPriceMarker method to apply multiple custom formats and values when an indicator has multiple plots, instead of being forced to format and value all the markers identically.
  • The ability to EXACTLY CLONE a chart, including all DataSeries settings.
  • Combining the Bid, Ask, and Last files into one file that is properly sequenced and has millisecond time stamps based on EXCHANGE time.
  • Providing for batch updating of replay data for a date range and for a number of instruments, instead of current method of one instrument at a time, one day at a time.
  • Providing for the handling of stack overflow errors without crashing the application.... can this be done?

Don't hold me to this but I believe this might work:

if (CurrentBar + 1 == Bars.Count)
// Reached last bar

I didn't check thoroughly, but it appears that Bars.Count includes all downloaded bars (including extended session), so if I'm not displaying it, CurrentBar + 1 will always be smaller. We'd need a built-in read-only boolean property of Strategy denoting last bar on chart (properly considering session template settings as well as the end date I set in Data Series properties dialog which may be in the past).

Closing out a chart


You need to have a idiot box popup box when closing out a chart. I cant tell you how many times I have accidently closed out a chart and lost my work.

Something like:

If I click yes:


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



If I click yes again:


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



Then close out the chart.

Well, I went a little overboard, but you get the point. With something as important as a chart where live trades are happening there really should be at least one safeguard. One last chance to say no, I didnt mean it...

Please make it tailorable to the trader. I am much more deliberate with my actions and don't need the extra impediments to me doing what I wanted to do.

It would be nice if Ninja could use multi core CPU a lot more. I use I7 CPU and it use max 15% and are very heavy to start becouse of some simpel data calculation in MarketAnalyzer and on chart. Why not let this go to different core.?

Ha! you beat me too it.. I was doing research last night on how to write the code.

Thanks!!

I still think NT should include it. Kinda crazy that you have to write a code for something that is a no brainer.

I would appreciate if NT8 would have better support for AOS strategy, for example auto strategy start up when NT starts etc.
