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.

Composite securities / Spread trading


I am a new ninja user (4days)

How good is ninja at composite securities or spread trading,

1. Ability to create. Composite / spreads
2. How well do they chart / does data line up
3. Do indicators work on them
4. Does back testing work

Typical examples would be ...

Long one s&p future and long one dollar index future

Long one s&p future and short one Nasdaq future

Thanks in advance

Their is no builtin spread functions with NT, but it's very easy to code something for this. There are few spread bots in the Elite forum, I think that was wrote by @MXASJ.
