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.

@NinjaTrader

I was wondering if NT8 will let you pause and and resume optimization and walk forward?
In NT7 it's quite frustrating that we are not able to pause half way through, and be able to resume it later. Also it would be nice to get to see what's are the results of the optimization as it progress. Finally stopping the optimization doesn't always properly stop it and no other optimization are possible without restarting the software.
Does NT8 improve any of the above?

We have not introduced a pausing concept. With respect to not properly stopping...NT8 should not have an issue, if there is then it's a bug and would get fixed.

Maybe this has been asked:

1) Why has NT not built a Spreader? It is such an important function that competitors sell this function at a premium.

2) Will NT8 have enough "hooks" for Third-Party developers to build a spreader (not as an indicator)?

1. Lack of demand
2. Yes.

Lack of demand? CQG and TT charge extra for their spreaders. It's how most professionals trade.

I'll try to write one for NT8. I started to write something for NT7 and did not finished it but I've already coded some parts which could be reused.
I also think there is a lack of demand, professionals trading spreads have very low commissions compared to retail traders which makes spread trading much more profitable.

Consider me a buyer. Though, I would really like to get the source code or at least a UML diagram.

I suspect there is some kind programming hurdle in NT7. Otherwise, an ecosystem partner would have developed it. NT8 will have a more accessible codebase, hopefully.

I would simply like the ability to scroll through a chart using the mouse wheel 1 bar at a time. Currently chart will scroll 3 bars at a time, and this can't be adjusted via mouse properties.

Scrolling through charts gives me a better sense of flow and perspective of what price is doing, and prevents me from being too focused on just the most recent price action I've just watched on screen, hence the requirement.

I would like to see the crosshairs become a "ruler" by depressing and holding the middle mouse wheel.
Then dragging between two points would give you stats like number of ticks[ + or - ],bars and time.
