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

To be able to save only the indicator settings. Now we can only do it by saving a chart template. This way we could have many different settings for the same indicator saved.

NT8 should fork multiple processes. Heck even web browsers do that these days. And please use a quality network accessible database.

A couple of requests:

- the ability to add a trailing stop AFTER a position has been opened.

- ability to use NT with SQL Server 2005/2008 Express, instead of the compact one.

- multi-tabbed windows/workspace like the one in Tradestation/MC, for quick view changes.

Thanks
J

Chart Scale

Futures Edge on FIO

What value do you place on the webinars on FIO?

 
Minimum Chart Scale Divisions on the Y Axis

I would like to have the option to set a minimum chart scale size.

The problem I have is with a workspace with a number of charts, some of which are small sized. If the chart contains a low number of bars and the market is quiet the high low range is low, but the bars are scaled to fit the window. That makes the fluctuations look bigger than they are.

It would be great if I could set the minimum chart y scale divisions to say 1, 2 or 5 points on the ES for example. This can be done in Investor RT and it is very handy to maintain perspective on volatility.

With this option the chart would still resize automatically, but it would not zoom in too much when the market range is low.

In Investor RT this option is called custom markings, Notice that the y axis scale major and minor divisions can be selected by the user.

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


Logarithmic Indicator Scale

Please add an option to have zero as the lowest value for an indicator. Try viewing volume on a minute chart with range set to automatic and the type to Logarithmic. You will notice that half of the panel is wasted as the zero line is drawn in the middle of the panel. Since volume is never below zero, this is wasteful of space.


Note - there is an indicator that adds this capability, but it would be better to have the option built into NT.

Chart Window Title - User Text

I would like an option to edit the title bar text of a chart to help find the chart I want when I have a number open.

For example, I may have two 5 min charts for ES with different indicators. These will have the same title bar text and that means that I can know which is which when I click on the task tray to see a list of open windows. If I could append some user text, I would not have this problem.

Please read the thread on Speeding NT with a RAMDrive

Hello,

I sure do hope the NT developers have a look at this thread:

https://futures.io/ninjatrader/23998-speeding-up-ninjatrader-ram-drive.html

At one point Big Mike suggests that we copy what we find in that thread to this one.

The activity on that thread has slowed, which prompted me to make this post now. I am not sure if the whole thread can be boiled down, except to generally say that it many users find it really boosts the heck out of performance.

Perhaps such technology could be included in NT 8, and/or develpers could look 'under the hood' to find out why there is a performance boost and remove bottlenecks associated with this.

Separately, one user at least noted that a third party (paid) indicator was causing a lot of his performance problems. It would seem to make sense then to offer some kind of profiling, so that users could determine what indicators were using up the most resources.

Thanks,
-Bob

@pawnbroker
You can already do it - just change value of Label property of your Data Series window (where the instrument name is)

An undo function (for the drawing tools) would be handy
