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.

From TOOLS/OPTIONS/Commissions tab, be able to set stocks fees with % of notional shares value with min and max fees options (right now the fees settings are only suited for futures and forex, not for the reality of stocks trading)

the normal workflow when you find a bug is that you fix the strategy, recompile, then want to see that the bug fix worked. Unfortunately all the params are lost so you have to try to remember what settings you were using for the previous opto, and re enter them one by one, 3 entries per param.

IMO, this is correct behavior. After recompiling, the hard-coded values should replace any hand-entered values in the optimizer. My advice is to make your strategy a base class, and create strategies derived from the base class so you can tweak whatever parameters you want that need to be different from the base class.

For example, in your base class:

 
Code
namespace NinjaTrader.Strategy
{
    public class PengiBase : Strategy
    {
        int x = 1;

        // actual strategy code like OnBarUpdate() etc.

        protected override void Initialize()
        {
            PengiOverride();
        }
        protected virtual void PengiOverride() { }
    }
}
Then, in the version of this strategy for ES, you want to set x = 2:

 
Code
namespace NinjaTrader.Strategy
{
    public class PengiTweakedForES : PengiBase
    {
        protected override void PengiOverride()
        {
            x = 2; // tweak parameters here
        }
    }
}
In your specific use case, you could create a derived class that just has the parameters set that reproduces the bug. Then, you can just use that derived strategy to debug the base class code with the custom paramters. Object oriented code FTW.

Better money management options

I've been playing with a new beta platform (iqbroker) that has money management scripts which transfer cash between my strategies during back-testing and live trading. I really wish that NT8 had that. The whole idea of having a portfolio of trading strategies should be improved.

Looking forward to NT8, will definitely purchase a copy if stability is improved.

Futures Edge on FIO
 
Code
namespace NinjaTrader.Strategy
{
    public class PengiTweakedForES : PengiBase
    {
        protected override void PengiOverride()
        {
            x = 2; // tweak parameters here
        }
    }
}
I really like your override thing for having a class with the specific settings for the instrument.
Great for if you run the strategy live and want to make sure settings aren't settable through the GUI.
I also agree its a good way to do optimize runs on different instruments without trying to have it all in one strat. Much tidier.

Yes, a trendline that matches through different timelines would be great!!!!!

Add some more retracement slots to fibonacci templates. Right now if you use too many ratios you have to use at the same time fibo retracements 2 times or complete it with fibo extension drawing tool which is not practical.

I'd like to see NT step up with the following:

Charts
- Record bid/ask tick data to track cumulative delta
- Provide a traditional Market Profile charting option

I realize Gomi has created indicators but you must store all the data on your PC vs on NT's servers. If you disconnect your feed, you miss out on all that data.

DoM
- Smart orders such as DoM triggered stops, Icebergs, etc.
- Allow indicator values displayed with the DoM that are currently displayed on your chart

I have these features already with CQG but would be happy to use NT's DoM if they could step up there capabilities. I actually like how NT's static DoM looks and would definitely use it.

Good one! FWIW, I submitted this suggestion to NT a couple months ago and they said they'd put it on their list of considerations. Fingers crossed.
