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.

Code editing / compilation: Many people use Visual Studio to edit ind/strats, and it's a pain to recompile those in NT - how about menu item under File -> Utilities for recompile request with accompanied keyboard shortcut?

RE:NinjaTraders response,

From my understanding of the 'real-time' trade performance, it's the virtual trades that I wanted to omit. I may have mistakenly called them theoretical. And I would also like to have those tools to view all my live trading per instrument whether it is a strategy or discretionary for a give period of time. i.e. I would like those tools to act as a trade journal for my actual trading, whether a strategy or discretionary.

Thanks.

Gann fan with more interactive movement of position for angles.
At the moment it's hard to pick on chart if there are other indicators in same area. and more snapping point for movement.

General i would like to se more Gann tools in Ninja like Square of nine and wiht right scaling. and all the other Gann tools.

Fibonacci retracements where you just add ekstra line for you need.

a fibonacci spiral

It would be nice if MarketAnalyzer could grab more output variable from indicator like colors off line, and different signal indicator generate wiht out speciel programming to use this in MarketAnalyzer.

I think Ninja should improve the hardware usage for example for strategic wizard in some ways because it needs too much time until now im my opinion.Today with the power of the new CPUs there should be a way to expose new developments better.

Any rough estimate on when NT8 could come out?

Are we talking a few months or are we talking 2013?

I have no inside info, this is just my best guess and personal opinion. I would say 2013 at the earliest. It doesn't mean they aren't going to release subsequent updates to NT7 in the mean time, naturally.

I believe Ray mentioned that NT8 is just a "code name" for now, it has not even been decided that they will call it NT8. Someone in the last futures.io (formerly BMT)/NT webinar said "just don't call it Vista" hehe.

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.

FX rollover for MB trading

Fix FX rollover issues with with NT and MB trading. Trades which are executed during rollover cause the strategy to crash and stop orders to be cancelled. You are left with a open position with no stops!!!

Two problems here:
  • MB sends bad price data which is 50 ticks below the last bar before rollover
  • NT executes trades during non market hours. ie rollover. Strategy crashes and canellation orders are sent to MB which cancels the protective stop.
I have contacted MB and NT about the issue and each blames the other... Honestly, I dont really care whos problem it is, just fix it!!!

Thanks!

Editing:

1) Recently edited ind/strat list, similar to what Excel and Word have.

2) Ability to select more than one file in edit ind/strat dialogs.

Telephones...

that GD simple. Support that answers the friggin telephone. Effing amazing a company gets away with e-mail support only....since e-mail is so clear and effective....and timely. (edited) Hookers have better customer service than NT

Moderator Note


Watch the name calling, that is not tolerated here and will result in a lifetime ban.

I have edited your post to remove it.

You are free to express your unhappiness, but keep it civil.

Mike

If you are this unhappy with the product, stop using it. Why put yourself through the anger and stress caused if you feel this way about the product? There are other platforms out there that offer phone support.

I wouldn't answer the phone either if I had you calling me with the above attitude... just a thought...
