Welcome to futures io.

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.

@monpere hasn't been on the site in a couple of months.

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.
6)

Painting of reversal bar?

Is there any way to paint the reversal bar to set it apart from the trend bars?

reversal bar


@Rudy52 Checkout ReversalBar-V2 in the search box. I think this may be Sylvester's work.
It works on Better Renko

Is there a way to have it play a wav sound file when a new bar is being drawn?

Also, I am really grateful for this tool.

There is but it is not practical because, depending on your settings, bars can be formed in under 1 second whilst others may take minutes - hours.

Did you mean reversal bars only? Now that would be something sound worthy but again depends on your settings. By settings I mean how often a reversal bar is formed.

Yesterday, 44 bars were drawn in the ES from 9:30 until 4:00pm using T2R12O2 settings. I don't mind if some bars are drawn in a few seconds, it gives me a cue on how much activity is going on (without noise).

Okay, just remember you asked for it (as in i still think it is unwise). Attached is a quick and dirty indicator file. You will need to put a sound file of your choice into the Ninja trader program folders, as for folder example:
C:\Program Files\NinjaTrader 7\sounds

The filename needs to be "mybarsound.wav". so you can make a copy of any sound file and name it to mybarsound.wav and it has to be in the location C:\Program Files\NinjaTrader 7\sounds

Import the attached zip file as any other indicator. Once installed it will be found in the indicator panel as "UniRenkoNewBarSound". Operates on "OnBarClose" = true only.

Enjoy

Working like a charm, thanks Tasker_182!

Took me a while to select an audio sound fitting for the purpose. Finally set my mind on some sound samples of the Heavy from Team Fortress 2 saying "Thank you".
Thought it would be a good idea to remind myself to be grateful during trading.

I was wondering if it would be possible to choose the sound file name from the indicator settings instead of having to use a default setting. This way it would be possible to set a different sound for each instrument so that I can know which instrument is moving just from the sound. I've been fiddling with the ES and 6E.

Now I know you said it was a bad idea, but really it doesn't ping all that often, even in the morning because of all the sideway movement. Thanks in advance!
