Welcome to

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.

Will someone attend this seminar?

If yes, I would be curious what they say in the chapter "How the CPU and RAM work in relation to NinjaTrader"...

Thanks for the seminar note. I am interested in working with ninjatrader.

my observations

I have a 4-core / 4-threat processor, and in my backtests I can clearly see, that a backtest with two stocks or an optimisation with two parameters takes as long as with one stock/parameter. So I would say that NT is able to use two cores.

To use all four cores, I open NT twice... It backtests slower then, but still an increase compared to using only two cores at the time...

Can anyone confirm that?

And has anyone attendet the seminar?

Hi Mike, I have the i7-2600... thought I wanted a stable system. last few OC'ed pc i had all went BSOD after 1 year or use. perhaps I should just build one for optimizing purposes.

However, when i optimize a large amount of variables, it always comes back to a performance 99% trade, i.e. only 1-2 trades in a years' worth of data. it's not realistic. what's the best criteria we should use to optimize?


Howdy, typer. . if I'm understanding what you're saying correctly in those last sentences, the problem is an easy fix. Either you're using an optimization criteria like the horribly flawed ones within ninja (profit factor, win %, etc) that are basically guaranteed to produce a SINGLE trade as the 'best' row of data, or its a problem with your strategy. If the former, send me a message, I've made a few simple alterations to force their optimization methods to find at least X number of trades, forcing a resolution to this problem. . if its your strategy itself (doubtful), I may be able to help you there as well.
