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.

This only works the first time you load the strategy - if you want to change the parameters (from parameters grid) after strategy started you still need to go through the entire process I have a beef with.

Yes I understand what you are saying now, and agree completely. I usually just remove the entire strategy and re-add, the only time I am altering parameters is after optimization. It was easier with NT 6.5.

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.

@gregid you could dock a panel to the chart and add controls for your inputs. Once you code it once, it would be easy to adjust for different strategies.

Futures Edge on FIO
Apologies if this has already been asked, but does anyone know if there are any plans to fix the calculations for MFE, MAE and ETD under account performance when scaling out of a position.

This works perfectly when you trade AIAO, but when you scale out NT takes your final trade figures and uses them for the parts of the position that you've already scaled out of.

To simplify the below example lets just say 1 tick = $1
Short 2 contracts at $58
Scale out 1 contract at $48
Price moves down to $35
Stopped out of last contract at $39
Position did not move against us ie: MAE = 0

The correct stats for the above example should be:
1st contract: MAE = $0, MFE = $10, ETD = $0
2nd contract: MAE = $0, MFE = $23, ETD = $4

NT would display the following incorrect stats:
1st contract: MAE = $0, MFE = $23, ETD = $9
2nd contract: MAE = $0, MFE = $23, ETD = $4

MFE and MAE should only be applicable while you are in the trade for each contract. NT seems to be using the final figures for the trade, but applying them to contracts that you scaled out of.

Thanks.

You donít trade the markets; you only trade your beliefs about the markets.

hi all,
i don't use global cross hair because i don't want the cross hair moves at all charts at the same time.
So i use the normal cross hair for my 6 charts. The problem is, when i check something at one chart and go to another, the cross hair often(not always) stays at the chart and it looks like i have drawn a horizontal and vertical line on it..

If you can turn this of please tell me. Otherwise it's on my wishlist

Indicator multiple defaults

In my wish list there is the capacity to save an indicator with multiple set-up defaults (as it is done in the Indicator Parameter Window) eg. Default 1,(a), default 2,(b). It would also help if a name coud be added.

This is useful if one compares same indicator with different parameters and brings them up on multiple charts.

Thank you

Buscador

Be able to load charts data by selecting "Bar units to load" on top / instead of "Days to load" which already exists.

Instrument Master Data & Session Templates

Currently, when I have to reinstall NinjaTrader (which rarely happens), then I lose a lot of work and it takes me hours

- to rebuild my session templates
- to enter rollover dates and offsets

Those are currently not stored separately. So I cannot retrieve them after a major failure of the software.

I would like to be able to save

- instrument settings for all instruments traded (including default session template, holiday settings, symbols for connecting to a data provider, rollover dates and offsets)

- session templates

and retrieve them for sending them to other traders or simply to have them as a backup for a later installation of NinjaTrader.

Usefull wishes


- Docking main window. Being able to minimize it to the dock (click it and you have the menu options).

- Unremovable sessions. Being updated from Ninja servers if anything changes. (like CME last year) and as a backup.

- Many templates for the indicator's settings, not only the default template. Many indicators have lots of settings for different uses and configurations.
