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 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.

Mouse Wheel to Expand & Contract Charts

User controls Mouse wheel operation. The ability to switch between ...
A) Expand & Contract Bars on Chart, with last Bar (nearest to right Y-scale) remaining fixed (instead of having to click and drag the x-scale.
B) Move chart data left and right (as is currently in NT7)

Chart and Instrument settings

NT7 stores the defaults for data series in a way that is unlike other charting applications, but not in a good way. This should be improved and here are some examples.

1) Data Series default settings

An OHLC chart should not change to a candle stick chart when the interval of the chart is altered.

Lets say that I set up a 15 min chart (A) as a candle chart. On another occasion, I set up a separate OHLC 30 min chart (B) for the same instrument.

If I change chart A from 15 min to 30 min, the chart style changes from candle to OHLC and that was not my intention. I wanted to see a OHLC chart with a longer time frame. In addition, I might also have to change the chart style and the up / down bar colours every time I change the interval.


2) Changing time frames.

Loading enough data relative to the interval of the chart

Lets say that I have a 5 min chart with 4 days of data and I want to look at a longer time frame to look at support and resistance levels, so I change the interval to 30min. I find that I have four days of 30 min data. My intention was to see the bigger picture on a longer time frame, but the chart does not load enough data so I have to go to the data series properties and change the settings.

Four days of 5 min data is fine for that chart, but I might want 31 days of 60 min data.

Summary

To make NT8 more pleasant and intuitive, careful thought is needed about which settings relate to the chart or to the instrument. I want to think about the markets, rather than the quirks of the charting application.


These changes would make NT8 work as the trader intends and increase their love for your product. Let the unique features of your product be good points and you will have happy users who are sticky customers!



Thanks

NT8


This is my first post to this discussion, but use Ninja Trader and would love to get to know how to code better. I wish there was a way to modify code in the Ninja Script wizard while still being able to create code using the wizard.

Custom Ninjascript used by ATM

I use Chart Trader a lot as a discretionary trader. I use ATM to place my exit orders during entry, but then have to manually move them to the place where I want them. Ie: at a certain ATR away from price, or at the previous pivot high/low, or trailed at the lowest low or highest high of the last "X" number of bars.

I propose the ATM manager allow me to code my own trailing exits after a manual entry and list the template in the ATM Strategy pull down menu.

I just noticed that MWinfrey asked for this in post 306. Oh well, then, I second it.

more completed "Trades" markers on Chart -

Futures Edge on FIO

What value do you place on the webinars on FIO?

 
For NT8 pls make avail more "Trades" markers (colored), that the system will draw on the chart; (after execution).
Like colored markers for Short-Entry Long-Entry, & relevant Profitable Exit Non-Profitable Exit, as well as Profit-Targets, etc. Instead of (in NT7) only having "Color for executions buy" & "sell'.
That way, when going over your past trades, one can easier and more quickly identify what you actually did instead of seeing just two colors for buy and sell.

1. option to download performance stats directly from broker
2. option to download each instruments commission setting from broker (& updater if we get lower rate from broker later)
3. more order types: iceberg, follow price stop/limit order
4. option to add sl/tp for: filled order without using atm

point 1 & 2 is especially helpful and logical to develop because i hate to see differences in my performance with and without correct commission setting.
just see how many questions asked about commission alone in your support forum.

sorry if any of this has been posted before. hoping to see improvements in NT8

cheers

just thinking this might be helpful too for traders:
- option to cancel order if spread > x tick

now that would help traders reduce risk getting heavy slippage during rough volatility

Marketmaking Algo

I wish in NT8 to include an algo that detects bracket order detection execution.
Once a trade is being made if the seller or the buyer uses a bracket order to been detected from this algo and next to doom have an extra ladder that sums the bracket orders.
This way I will now at which side are the pros and I will trade like a pro.

Ability to save Export NinjaScript dialog settings as a template: Pretty much similar UI approach to chart templates - e.g. right-click in the dialog and save / save-as which would save all options as well as selected objects. Very helpful for people that export their code often to be used on their other machines for testing, trading, optimization, or some other scenarios. Helps avoid mistakes happening while manually selecting objects or typing assembly names to export over and over.
