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.

SierraChart has this awesome feature of applying a group of indies to an existing chart without deleting that chart's indies.

Is that like just disabling existing ones so that they are not lost along with their parameters?
In general, any other simple things in SC that you'd like to see in NT8?

I see, so NT8 should offer 3 options then, for existing indies on chart, when applying a template:
1) remove,
2) disable,
3) leave them be

Futures Edge on FIO

What value do you place on the webinars on FIO?

 
Inserting the exact copy of an indicator that's already on the chart including parameters. E.g. you have MACD on the chart, you right-click and select insert exact copy: that inserts MACD again with same parameters so that you can change just one rather than: inserting second MACD, making sure that all parameters are the same, and then you change one. This is especially helpful if input series is complicated, like double ma of close with diff lengths, or with custom indicators with many parameters.

Just to clarify one thing-- in order to do this, you need to go to the Custom tab of the colors window and then right click on one of the white boxes in the bottom two rows before you can enter a RGB value. It took me a couple years before I realized I could do this

At some point, it would be nice if NT could store my custom values somewhere so I don't have to re-enter them.

No, not at all. Just highlight with mouse cursor the color value in any color box, then start typing.

I just tried that: you can either type hex prefixed with # (e.g. type #7ea02f) or three rgb dec numbers separated by commas (e.g. type 126,160,47).

Thanks for the tip, but it is not obvious.

I don't understand why many people complain about stability, I run NT with lots of indicators without any problems. It's really stable and fast for me. Helpdesk always helped me out if I ran into a problem. Always.

Then you probably are a exception, or you are very luck. Everybody knows that Ninja Trader is not so stable and there is also some bugs.

I have had execution problems in the past when I was with PFG Best; And PFG blames NT and NT blames PFG. Very nice.

Yesterday I woke up and turn on my NT and then in two of my charts my indicators disappear completely; I had to put them all back again. Very nice.

A couple of white screen in the past as well. Very nice also.

One day I will come to the point where I can use CQG; As for now I still using NT for charting, but for execution I start to use Multi Charts.

Hi, yes it works fine, but you can not put more than one chat on the same tab, you can have many tabs but on each tab you can put only one chart. Which in my case does not help much, as I wanted to have more than one chart on each tab.
