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.

Two suggestions.

Firstly I would like to see the trade executions plotted accurately - e.g an arrow at the price you entered and one at the price you exited, rather than showing the buy arrow at the bottom of the candle and sell arrow at the top even if you bought it high and sold it low. The price labels themselves (e.g. buy xxx sell xxx) are not useful if you are scalping and putting a ton of trades per day as this will get messy and hard to see individual wins and losses, very important for performance evaluation.


I have been asking for the real trade execution arrows FOR YEARS now ... Yes some little arrows pointing sideways at the correct price we entered and exited would be awesome. True.

I totally second that.

The other suggestion - I don't think I get it >>> So I don't think NinjaTrader will "get it either" unless you explain better. Maybe add a picture of what you mean.
Ninja has shortcuts for the drawing tools and there is a modification for Ninja to have all the drawing tools on the chart>>> it is called TOOLBAR SHORTCUT I think >>> it is in the downloads. Look for it. That is probably what you are asking for.

This is supported in NT8. In fact, it is supported in NT7 already. Right click in the Chart Trader panel and select "Add Target".

This post deserves more attention. I have been looking to do this for some time now. I will have to check it out in NT 7 this week.

HORIZONTAL "RAY" LINE


ONE MORE Suggestion/Request I would love is a NEW DRAWING TOOL >>>

Called Horizontal Ray >>>

and all it actually is - is a RAY that IS PURE HORIZONTAL LINE . So we click in a place on the chart and the RAY projects to the right forever like a "ray" but it stays horizontal always.

This is useful for putting a new support level that just appeared.

Perfect if you want to put a support level at a price for later... but you DON'T want a horizontal line to go BACKWARDS on the chart and mix with price action in the past.

The platform Genesis has this feature and it is SUPER HANDY and super easy to implement I think.

THANKS

I second that.

I think this may have been asked in one of the webinars, but an extremely valuable addition would be to show/hide an indicator that is in in one of the lower panels, under the price panel. Right now, we can can add a show/hide property in code to anything that shows on the price panel, and just do a return if it's true -- but that's no good for an indicator in a lower panel, because the panel doesn't disappear, just becomes empty.

You can use Maximize/Restore to hide all the other panels, but not just one individually.

This does not seem like it should be too tough. Hope it's not too late in the development cycle to get it in, if it's not already.

Thanks.

Bob.

Thanks I added an image and also found the indicator. This will make thing easier, but a slight advantage of having custom shortcuts at the top of the default toolbar would be that you only select the ones you use so it is less cluttered, and you also get a tiny, tiny bit more chart space lol.

Understanding yourself is just as important as understanding markets.

Oh Yea. I know what you mean now. I think there are a few vendors that are doing what you are talking about. Search on Youtube for vids of it.
