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.

-- Big Mike

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.

That's great! I'm no programmer but it seems like it would be fairly simple. Could even be just coloring in the price area like the HOD and LOD option already available.

Cheers,
PB

1) Ability to clone any existing indicator or strategy under new name. Great for trying different variations without starting from scratch. So e.g. I should be able to select MACD to be cloned, enter MyMACD as clone's name and get an indicator with all the code from MACD copied and in place in a new code file (MyMACD.cs). The only difference in code would be the class name (MyMACD), and anything in auto-generated section that would be dependency or in conflict with the original.

2) Ability to clone a chart - I can already do this manually by following the steps outlined below, but the system should do that:
- save chart's layout as temp template
- open new chart
- apply temp template
- delete temp template
- all done

tracking an order in total instead of on a contract by contract basis,

presently if you do a 20car trade, you'll see on the Executions tab of the Control Center, twenty line entries.

Good Grief Charlie Brown!

tracking per trade MAE

Good Grief Charlie Brown, catch up with the competition

work on those 2 things!

If I remember correctly, there is a checkbox on the bottom something like "Group Entries" to group a single order with multiple contracts together.

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)

For a 20 car order, you will see an entry for each individual execution (fills) that comprises that order with execution ID's from the exchange. If you want to see one line for the total fill amount, please see the orders tab, that will do what you want.

1) Need to know which chart template is loaded.

2) If my NT is missing any indi that a particular template is using , there should be some way to know that.
or alternatively there should be an easy way to see template content of inid in user-friendly way.

Check the log tab of the Control Center. It will say in yellow if your template/workspace tried to load an indicator that is not installed.

1. Choice between cumulative (like X-trader) and last trade in a DOM.
2. New drawing tool - zone - something between rectangle and horizontal line.
3. Access to market position from indicator.
