Measure Move Tool on Ninja

Does anyone know how to get the measured move tool on Ninja? I was told to use a Fib retracements, however it doesn't come close to what Al Brooks has on his charts. Thanks,

Answer
This post has been selected as an answer to the original posters question Answer


For a measured move you would first measure the size of an upswing or downswing and then add the distance that equals the swing size to the starting point.

In NinjaTrader you can do this with the Fibonacci Extension Tool. See chart below.

Now don't blame me, if price does not always respect the targets, as it should in a well behaving market.

Measure Move Tool on Ninja

I tried that but the settings for the Fib are not the same as a measured move, per Al Brooks charts. I'm trying to post an example, but having problems. This is my time posting, shy and nervous.

Here is a copy of his 5m chart today. It looks like a 50% movement measurement. There are 3 small horizonal lines, two red and one blue.

Ninja has to use the Fib drawing tool with alot of adjustments, and we just need to know the perimeters to use. I'm testing that now.

Has anyone else ever setup the fib retracement tool in Ninja?

There is nothing you need to set up. Just press F9 and then select the first swing and move on to the starting point of the second swing.

By the way I do not think that this type of analysis is very useful. Al Brooks cuts off the pre-open price action and volume. His chart only shows half the swing that occured, and he derives a target from that half swing, which is obviously false. Markets are interrelated, news releases occur prior to the open of the stock market and the FOREX markets start at 8:00 AM EST.

If you look at the price action, you will notice that the double amount of the 30 min opening range (add opening range to upper limit of opening range) got you a better target than the broken swing measured move from Al Brooks.

Fat Tails, could it be because of volume. First half of hour today was equal to all globex.

Today is rollover day. This is not really a typical day to consider. Globex volume was 539 k, volume of the first 30 minutes was 218 K for the old contract for ES.

But equity markets worldwide move in lockstep, off-session the ES is driven by the FESX which has a high volume, when the NYSE is still closed. The volume shown does not represent the world equity markets, and while you are still asleep the markets are digesting the news from other markets of the world.

Today ES made its high prior to the open, so far the Globex low was not tested either.

I get it, but I have no way to verify some of what you are saying, without a great deal of effort.

But I guess I would have to say, it's hard to argue with a person that makes 7 figures.

Thanks for your comments and for being so generious.

And thanks to Big Mike for continously encouraging me to contribute. This is a very nice forum.
