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.

Ok so how does someone inexperienced with coding get started. Again looking for entries as market orders as a stop and reversal system on each signal with no other filters to start?

@booker777: I would start exploring this thread and watching the video by @Big Mike.

There are also a number of simple sample strategies that come with NinjaTrader. The strategy by @Ducman is an advanced piece of code. Your first strategy should be much simpler.

I would recommend to run the first strategy on minute bars and in mode CalculateOnBarClose = true. In that case the strategy will only make a decision once per N minutes, and you can be sure that this decision has been executed, before the next decision is made. Minute bars have the advantage that

- they can be backtested
- overfills are unlikely, once you go live and trade with real money

There are also several Webinars that cover NT programming in the (formerly BMT) webinar section.


Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
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.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
