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.

Are all values in a Ninja data box downloadable to excel?

Hey Big Mike,

I'm so impressed with your work. I was a systems programmer on Wall Street and I can tell your are someone special. Congratulations.

I want to download data to excel and my question is
can I download all items in a data box on Ninja?
I see that you had date, time, open, high,low,close.

Can volume be included and the values for indicators that
I might include on a chart which would also appear in
the data box.

Most sincerely,

Bill Niemann

Yes, everything can be exported.

Check here for real time DDE -> Excel:

And here for historical exporting:


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.
