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.

A strategy is to (in the case of an uptrend), wait for a pullback (wait for a tail to form), place a buy order inside the body, place a stop at the reversal point. If price resumes the trend you are in early and price will normally shoot up a number of tics

@Tasker_182, @Raj1,

This is exactly one of those aggressive trend continuation set up entries with UniRenko that I take as mentioned in my previous post. However, I use some sort of S/R levels or other confirmation for trend. The R/R is very favorable (a small stop with T1 better than the stop and a potential nice run for T2).

Cheers!

@ aligator
Do you use a lower time frame chart for entry? if so, what is the parameters you suggest for lower time frame chart?
Hope, with the use of lower time frame chart, if we use the same entry technique, after the reversal bar in higher time frame chart, we can manage with lesser stop loss instead of using 20 tick stop loss.
Appreciate your views and inputs on this.
Thanks

Did you compile it and close Ninja before re-e-opening?

If so, you need to place it in the 'Type' folder and not the indicator folder.

Ahh hmm no I didnt do that -

When I did open it and hit compile I got error CS0101 on line 12 which only has a {

from reading through the earlier part of this thread I assume it has something to do with the PeriodType.Custom5 do I need to change that?

Thanks for the quick response!

Ok I downloaded the new one from the link @trs3042 provided. Put it in 'Type' folder. But I still do not see it in that dropdown menu.
