Strategy Wizard for Non-Programmers NO CODE

Strategy or automation of the decision process has become the focus of many traders. The markets seem to have proven to be too complex for the standard human to “outsmart.” Emotions or psychology seem to prove to be the undoing of many.

So looking for at least a good entry point void of emotion is now the holy grail of trading, especially for scalpers.

Programming is not easily achieved by many whom wish to avail themselves of these tools but do not have the time, knowledge, or patience. NT Strategy Wizard seems like a wonderful tool to accomplish either sim trading that could be emulated or live trading with the strategy creating the entry and the trader planning the exit. Of course completely automated would be wonderful. But until you find that nirvana, the entry portion may be enough.

Attached is a basic wizard strategy that could be used as a good framework for starting with the wizard. It includes Market Analyzer elements that can be used and reused in the Strategy Analyzer. Please post new strategies.

Most strategies seem to have at least some MA, and trailing stops. These elements are there for optimization. There are also two “reusable parameters’ that would be set for each area of planning or optimizing the strategy. Then those elements would be set in the area of testing and they are available to be reused in another optimization.

I am sincerely hoping that this forum will allow for novices to begin creating strategies that could be shared across the non-programming traders.

To get started:

Place the attached file in \My Documents\NinjaTrader 7\bin\Custom\Strategy

Then use Tools, Edit Ninja Script, select the file. It should open in the Strategy Edit Wizard. Once the file is opened you will need to compile it. Then you can run it on your system as is and use the Strategy Analyzer to see its back test and/ optimization.

Strategy Wizard allows you to add indicators and parameters without being a programmer.

Before you start modifying it, you probably want to rename it into your personally named file:

Using Windows Explorer (search) to rename the file will not work since the file name and the internal text strategy name must match.

Then you can run it on your system as is and use the Strategy Analyzer to see its back test and/ optimization.

Strategy Wizard allows you to add indicators and parameters without being a programmer.

Before you start modifying it, you probably want to rename it into your personally named file:

Using Windows Explorer (search) to rename the file will not work since the file name and the internal text strategy name must match.

Push the "View Code" button. The code will show up as if you are going to edit it.

Right click, select "Save As" and rename the file to what you will want your strategy to be called. The system will automatically rename the file AND your strategy to match the file name. The file name cannot have any spaces or special characters.

Then close the file AND close the opened edit strategy since that is still in the previous file name. Now reopen your new file for edit.

FYI, if you do something that comes back stating your strategy cannot compile. Push that view code, compile and it will show you the errors.

Once you have the strategy “perfected” post it here for others to provide recommendations. Additionally, enter it in the

Good trading to all!

EDIT: FYI, Strategy Wizard is going to use the default settings of the indicators to plot on the screen. There are two ways to modify this.

1st. Of course you just rename the locked indicator by right clicking in the indicator edit and "Save As" another name. Now use that name for your strategy.

2nd. Locked indicators cannot be saved under their locked name from NinjaTrader. BUT they can be opened in MS Word for editing. As long as you are keeping it simple, i.e... just changing the plot from line to triangleRight, etc... these indicators can be saved under their locked name. This allows for customization of the Strategy Wizard plots.

Great idea jmont1, but why have I found it just now?!
Especially useful is the time example and multiple exits.

Many thanks!

Hi Low moves


Used the base wizard that started this thread to make a strategy for a member.

Request:

When new high is hit - go long with small target and vice versa for new low

The idea should hit target fairly quickly so it has a maximum number of bars and max loss from that max bars.

Did not return a good ROI but it is a usable example of strategy without coding.

NT8 Strategy Builder Base

NT8 is now using Strategy Builder that has many more capabilities than NT 7's Strategy Wizard. One major item is you can add a secondary instrument and timeframe to the original chart set up.

Just to assist in getting novices started faster I have created a base strategy with multiple likely variables. It is not a real strategy since it only has two (2) condition entries on tab 1 for a long and tab six for a short. Tab 10 has an interesting item that allows for closing a position based on number of bars and minimum profit. This is to get out of positions that have languished beyond a reasonable point.

ALL of the variables are set quite high so adjust them to more reasonable levels.

Additional tabs may look like there is a condition but it is basically Close(0) != Close(0) -- essentially saying price does not equal price. This is there so those pages are defunct until that condition is removed and replaced with actual conditions.

The second strategy is an attempt to build an entry based on three consecutive bars in the same trend - essentially 3 White Soldiers or 3 black crows. It did not turn out with a successful profit but it may help with ideas.

Hope this helps.

FYI, to change the name of the aBase1 strategy for your own edits, select it from the drop down and hit "Next" at bottom of page. Then hit "Back" and the name field will be editable.

AND if you do get a reasonable strategy, PLEASE share it here. Collaboration may make it even better.

Importing problem

@jmont1,

I have downloaded the file aBase1.cs and did not compile properly - called for TSSuperTrendStrat.cs - so I have downloaded this one as well. Now NT editor calls for SMMA (The name SMMA does not exist in the current context) and I could not find NT8 version.
Is NT7 version of SMMA suitable?

I am finding awkward to navigate in NT8 but would like to try its' multi instrument multi-timeframe Wizard capabilities - just have 'teething problems'.

Cheers,
romus

@romus, Guess I should get used to exporting the files into zip instead of providing cs files. Here is my first attempt at it. I expect you should be able to import all of the files.

I have not done much with the additional Data but it is on the third page - add Data. Then when you select an indicator change the Input Series through the drop down. Hope it works for you.

@jmont1,

You are faster than a speeding ticket.
This has worked!
Now I have to go out of my comfort zone and find my way to use wizard in NT8.

Many thanks,
romus.

Breakout strategy

@jmont1,

I am back to comfort zone (NT7) - NT8 seems a bit harder to navigate at the moment.

Your sample strategy Wizard allowed me to make another step in creating simple strategies.
I wanted to build a strategy in NT7 for breakout e.g. of Opening Range where trade is taken any time after provided that Range in specified time is broken.
Then - Exit should be easier - On Close, Target, Next Open...

Could you give me an angle on this?

Many thanks in advance.

Best regards,
romus.

Re: Breakout Strategy

@jmont1,

Please disregard my request in previous post.
Going back I have found in Post #3 HiLowHit02 strategy which I am now trying to adjust for my needs.

Thanks again for your idea and input.

Bets regards,
romus.
