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

Tab Order

Input field Tab order should proceed in a logical use manner not in a random fashion as it does now.
For example when editing strategy optimizer parameter fields Tabbing should proceed to the next parameter, not to the current instrument -> instruments tab -> ??? -> Summary tab -> ??? -> Strategy List... as it does now. Not very user friendly.

Minor nit-pick but little things like that are the difference between a user friendly polished piece of software and one where the user gets the feeling that the programmer just said, "well its good enough".

Agree, I am a big user of the tab key and keyboard in general as opposed to mouse. It's much faster when doing things of a repetitious nature.

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.

N8 wish list


Not sure if these things have been mentioned, or if the exist, but...

1. Ability to turn off and on the extended portion of a Ray.
2. Ability do click drawn fibs and erase individual lines independently without having to go into the properties and uncheck the one you don't want.
3. Having price show on a horizontal line placed on the chart.
4. Being able to align all charts in a workspace in various ways automaticslly. For example, if you have 4 chats you could click align equally and each chart would be the same size. Or align vertically or horizontal.

Thanks

D

Ability to specify the sequence/order for calculations of primary/secondary series

At present - NT calculates the values for Primary data series First and then secondary dataseries - though the code has an explicit order in which events have to be calculated (first calculate on secondary series and then primary series). This seems to be a limitation with NT and would like to have it addressed and the flexibility should be given to user on the sequence of calculations.

Got to admit Sierra Chart have done a fantastic work in this space to accommodate the Sequence of calculations - which is very accurate way to do it - when needed and would like to have some what similar flexibility in NT as well - let the code decide which series to be calculated first.

We can start taking bets?

@NinjaTrader Ray will be back on Feb 27th on futures.io (formerly BMT) for another webinar on NT8. So it's probably a good idea to stay tuned to that webinar.

Start the pool

set an over under, closest guy wins. Requires either official company press release as that will have a time stamp...or the actual first day available.

I'll take the OVER.

NT8 feature request: Increase the number of simultaneous threads for IQFeed connections. IQFeed is rate limiting at about 1.5MB/sec per thread/connection. I would want 4 threads that way it would better utilize my connection and speed up the download of data as needed.
