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

Options to the Data Box have been in my "wish list" for years.

1) An option "Bar Lock" check box to lock the data given to the current bar (presently the data is given for the bar aligned to the cursor only.)

2) An option to toggle up or down the position of the indicators listed in the Data box so the data of two or more indicators can be more easily compared.

3) An option to make a default of an user defined set up including above mentioned changes. In my case, I don't either need to know the Panel Number, Data Series or Indicator labels. They unnecessarily occupy useful space in the chart and I have tot change it at every start.

Thank you

Buscador

1) Allow more instruments commissions settings. The ones planned now are not enough.
I'm thinking about forex trading but this can apply to other instruments types from broker to broker, it is not uncommon that commissions are defined by % of notional trade value. For instance my FX broker requires 0.0025% of notional trade value on FX pairs. This is special in the way that the commissions are not fixed but change depending on the evolving price you trade. That implies commissions can vary mucho mucho especially on mid long-term trading.
Very precise commissions are vital when backtesting from Strategy Analyser and right now, I need to export my trades to Excel or use another trading software to take care of commissions based on % of notional trade value, which is a pain in the ass. Ninja should absolutely address this issue.

2) About Strategy Analyser results, nowadays you can display them either by Currency, Percent or Points. It would be nice to add "Ticks" display.

Diversification can be one key to automated trading success.

My biggest dream would be that NT8 has the ability to combine numerous Strategies results natively into one diversified Equity Curve (be it, different strategies from same instruments, or same strategy on different instruments, different strategies on different instruments)

This would be a MAJOR and truely interesting addition (without the need to goof around with time extensive alternative routes to take care of this)

Persistence

Futures Edge on FIO
The most irritating thing about NT7 for me is the almost complete lack of persistence for any setting. For example:

1. If I switch from minute to daily data then back the days to load resets to 5 days.... why.
2. Account Performance always starts in Percent... I must have switched back to currency thousands of times.... why.
3. Strategy Optimizer, after every run or even tab change all the chart indicators are lost and load template does not work because the trade markers and text are lost.

I can go on but you get the point. A big key to a user friendly piece of software is having it work with the user rather than fighting him. For me the lack of persistence really gets on my nerves. And the kicker is that it only takes a couple of lines of code (per data point) to add persistence.

Just my little rant, obviously I would like to see substantive features added but feel that the user experience could be vastly improved, overall a great application.

I believe for item 1 you can right-click and set defaults for that data type.

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)

I know this has been griped about, but I am not up to date if it is a done deal for NT8: please give us 10 levels of depth on the DOM, like much of the competition has.

Not to mention, it's sad when a cellphone with completely inferior hardware and software, is able to produce this.

Feature request - universal 'counter' for all chart types -- one indicator that handles time (countdown), tick, volume, range, etc.
