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.

I would love the ability to not show your unrealized profit in chart trader. Right now you need to choose either points, $, or %. Not knowing would help out with psychology issues though!

Cheers

I would very much like to see an option to override the session templates in order to create monthly sessions.

NT7-style: SuperDOM -> properties -> number of price rows

Note: this issue has been resolved (details at bottom of post)

In NT8, it seems that we must resize the SuperDOM window in order to increase or decrease the number of visible price rows. After doing so, I noticed that the rows will remain the same height regardless of how many are displayed. Although I would prefer to keep the NT-7 menu option which allowed the user to specify "number of price rows" without any need to resize the SuperDOM window, I am willing to change my habits in order to accomodate the new workflow requirements.

After I posted a similar thread to this one on the Ninjatrader support forum, a reply (with an example video about how the "number of price rows" functionality actually works in NT7) by Ninjatrader_ChelseaB helped me to understand that only the method of interaction has changed in NT8, and so the same results can be achieved in NT8 simply by resizing the superDOM.

My actual issue should have been restated as follows: it seems that NT7 superDOM allows me to use a smaller height for each price row than what NT8 now appears to require. If there is not currently a way to get back to the NT7 shorter price row height when using NT8, then perhaps that is the feature which I should have requested.

I think that it is important to visualize prices at a glance which would normally lie at least a little bit outside of the superDOM without running out of screen space or wasting screen space, and without the need to slide the price ladder up or down manually. That is why the shorter height of each price row on the superDOM matters to me.

Update: my issue has been resolved by a reply (including an example screenshot showing side-by side superDOMs and also displaying the superDOM properties menu with a custom font size parameter) made by tradesmart to my other post on the Ninjatrader support forum as follows:

"Why not just change the font size? That will affect the number of rows, as will resizing the DOM window, so in combination you should be able to display exactly the number of rows you'd like."
