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.

here's a thought

buy, sell, short, close, flat, +1 (point), -1 (point) BUTTONS

on the Market Analyzer columns selection list

simply put, allow the capability to trade, and manage positions from the MA

cheers,

and good trading to you!

Accessing IntSeries and BoolSeries via Market Analyzer and Strategy Builder

Not sure whether this has been mention before:


Currently strategy builder and market analyzer can only access plots containing DataSeries objects.

When using trendfilters, you would typically make them accessible via a BoolSeries (trend up or down) or an IntSeries (uptrend = +1, neutral trend = 0, downtrend = -1). I have coded a number of indicators that have those BoolSeries and IntSeries exposed in a way that they can be accessed by a manually coded strategy.

However, IntSeries and BoolSeries cannot be accessed by the strategy builder and the market analyzer. I therefore often had requests to convert the IntSeries and BoolSeries into a transparent plot in order to allow accessing the trend information.

It would be better to allow direct access of BoolSeries and IntSeries via the Market Analyzer and Strategy Builder.

Download for Replay additional functionality

please consider allowing a date range, instead of just a single date

please also allow for a checklist, that populates or continues as a super function (the actual download being the function); that allows for, say check boxes on the Instrument List (default) for contracts selected, to be downloaded with the specified date ranges...

how's that?,
one idea,
and another better idea than the first....

cheers to an excellent trading platform, that accomplishes just so many tasks that's its amazing!

Improve performance graphs

1. Display exact dates (when hovered over, for example) on daily net profit bars
2. Fix efficiency graphs bug where the values can be over +- 100%. Just fix it, don't ask users to debug it for you, NT!
3. Explain somewhere what MFE, MAE graphs mean and how to use them. What patters should one look for/avoid, etc.
4. Monthly/weekly net profit - display exact date ranges on the bars (on hover?)

Tim.

Market Analyzer - Intervals

Add the ability to create a Market Analyzer with multiple time frames or intervals in a vertical column
similar to TradeStation (see screenshot).

What does that column do other than say 5 Min?

Attached is a better screenshot I found for TradeStation. By listing the intervals vertically,
I would be able to group the instruments as seen in the screenshot and I can see at a glance
if certain criteria are met on each time frame. In this example ADX "peak" values
are listed.

With NT, I have to create a separate column for each time frame (horizontally) and
that means creating 7 columns (one column for each time frame) which doesn't
leave much room for anything else. By "grouping" the instruments by interval, it leaves
room for add columns for other things like values for RSI, OB/OS values of another
indicator, ATR or moving average, etc..
