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.

Yes, but:

a) Please spend an extra second and write a more descriptive thread title. You can imagine if the forum had 50,000 threads all titled "Help" or "Indicator" instead of a useful descriptive title.

b) Please spend some time and effort into asking for help. Post a screenshot of the indicator you want converted. Post the source code.

c) Please explain why someone should spend time converting this indicator for you. Why is the indicator useful and unlike all the other existing indicators?


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.

Convert My Mt4 Profit Tracker Indy to NinjaTrader Indy Format

I'm in need of having my "Profit Tracker" indicator for Mt4 converted over to NinjaTrader indicator format. I have attached a picture of how it looks on a Gold Chart. (lower right hand corner)

It would be nice to be able to have a parameter that tells the indicator where to sit i.e. lower left hand corner or upper right hand corner so forth and so on.

The new conversion should be able to auto adjust it's color (in contrast) to the chart background color. i.e. if the chart background is white, the Profit Tracker will turn black for label text and red for lost and green for profits.

Feel free to ask me for more information or clarity.

I appreciate all whom have come by and reviewed my post here in Big Mike's Forum.
