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.

obviously you should post the new version next to the old version.

Folks,
These bars have become an integral part of my trading systems.
I went ahead and fixed the memory leak on the UniRenko bars. Now I can market replay a strategy without any memory leaks which is awesome.

I didn't want to attach here because it seems to be an elite indicator. Can someone tell me how to move this code up to the elite circle? or can I just attach here?

Thanks!

monpere created the thread in non-Elite section, but placed the download in the Download section, which means Elite only. However, he also posted the code on the NinjaTrader support forum I believe, so I would say it was his intent to disclose the code publicly and not just to Elite members.

Unfortunately he has not logged on in a long time so there is no way to verify it.

Basically it's up to you. If you want your code to be Elite only, then put it in the Download section and just link to it here in the thread. If you want it to be open for everyone, put it in this thread as an attachment.

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.

Thanks, but I was actually looking into replacing his version on the download section, so people would download a 'working' version of the UniRenko and not a version that will actually bring the entire NT platform down. This way I would prevent people from installing a 'bad version' if you know what I mean.

Any way to do that? I mean, put this fixed version as an update.

OK gotcha. That is a bit of a special situation...

Normally I encourage authors to update their files, and then I will send out notifications. But in this case the entry is under his name.

Here is what I suggest which I think is best compromise:

1) Upload it to the Download section:
https://futures.io/local_links.php?action=addlink&catid=19

2) Do the screen shot and description and everything, make it clear in description that this is a bug fix/memory leak fix for the original version posted by monpere.

Once that is done come back to this thread and post a link to that entry. When I see it, I will then do:

3) I will update the original entry by monpere to include a link to your new version, but I will not replace his code. That way the notification emails will be sent out, and people can see the link to your version, but the file code will still be his for that entry.

It would be simpler if he was still around but he isn't, so I think this is the best way to handle.

@Big Mike @dstrader,

I appreciate your consideration for monpere's intent. But, as we know, a certain vendor is already selling UniRenko under his own name for $200 lease per month. Please don't give them the opportunity to steal this improved version also until we hear from monpere himself and his intents.

Thanks.

ok... I followed Big Mike's suggestion and created a new entry (and called this v3):
https://futures.io/download/ninjatrader-7/indicators/1430-download.html?view

I believe just Elite members can access, but I'm not sure.

Thanks heaps this has already proven to be better. I was just about to embark on re creating these bars but the cost involved for me considering I am not a programmer just wasn't worth it. The memory consumption today was half of normal and i did not see any gradual rise during the day as I normally would expect. So fingers crossed this fixes the issues I have been having.

thanks again......

Mitch

Thanks. I have sent out the update notifications from version 2, and linked to version 3 you've posted.

ADD statement for UniRenko as non-primary input series

dstrader, thanks for sharing your source code with us. Is it possible to add this UniRenko bar type as a non-primary input series in a strategy? If so, would you please specify the ADD statement for it.

To support Muti TimeFrame indicators/strategies using the Add() method, added an alternative way to specify all bar specs in the 'Tick Trend' parameter. You can now alternatively specify each parameter as 3 digits in the Data Series window 'Tick Trend' parameter or Add() method 'Period' parameter. For example to specify TickTrend=4 , TickReversal=8, OpenOffset=2 or (T4R8O2) then specify: 'Tick Trend'=004008002 in Data Series window, or Add(PeriodType.custom5, 004008002);' in your MTF code. The normal way of specifying the parameters will still work as well.

Perhaps you missed Monpere's procedure to use in MTF. I thought you did this before?
