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.

Click Webinars top of any page.

Read the list, you'll find several on NinjaTrader Programming.


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.

Rome wasn't built in a day.

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

First learn the basics of C# programming from a book like this.

Head First C#: Andrew Stellman,Jennifer Greene: 9780596514822: Books

This particular book is very strong not only on procedural coding but also on object oriented design, which is good to know although not used all that much in most indicators.

This will give the foundation to start making sense of the Ninjatrader Help articles and to start copying and learning from well written indicators by (formerly BMT) contributors like Fat Tails.

You won't get very far with the beginner information in a Webinar.

Unfortunately most Ninjatrader coding on (formerly BMT) and elsewhere is very sloppy. There is a thread on (formerly BMT) about writing efficient C# code but hardly anyone is interested. People tend to copy and immortalize the really bad practices that they see in others' work.
