Yeah I've seen both of those posts...the first one was converted into a $160 paid indicator.

The second one is just pointing to this paid indicator.

I'm trying to do something for free that we can all use.

Thanks for chiming in. I appreciate it.

I wouldn't just dismiss the charting quandl has itself.
Making this in ninja wouldn't be trivial
Commitment of Traders - Gold - Futures Only (CFTC) - Data and Charts from Quandl
Being able to click on and off the various aspects of the COT is pretty slick.

I love ninja but life is easier if you don't try to have one application do everything.

My reason for moving the data into NT is so that I can backtest ideas at scale, which I can't do without bringing the values into NT.

According to the Quandl API page, there is a .NET api.

https://github.com/QuantConnect/Quandl.NET

I didn't look to see what version of .NET. If it's more than 3.5 then I believe it won't work with NT7. But otherwise...

Mike

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)

Not a bad idea...however if wrapping the code around this .NET API meant that everyone would need to download the .NET API, I don't think it would work very well. But hell, who knows...maybe it would be.

Right now I'm stuck on the dumbest thing: how to convert a List<string> that contains string elements that are formatted as "XXXX.0". I need to:

1. Parse the ".0"
2. Convert the parsed value to an Int 32
3. Add the parsed Int32 value to a new List

If I can do this, I'm in the barn...but I can't get the damn gate open. It should be easy, but it's been a long day.

I made great progress this AM. I've now successfully pulled the legacy COT info from a Quandl web request and then converted the information into dates and values. I'm able to print this info to the Output Window--so I have successfully completed part 1 of pulling the COT data into NT.

Next up will be matching dates and bars to assign the correct COT values to each bar--and then assign the correct values to plots and plot the info. Almost there.

Howdy--

I finished my COT indicators, and I posted them in the Elite section under a new thread call Commitment of Trader's ("COT") Report: NT Tools and Discussion. I chose to make the indicators Elite only so as to help out futures.io (formerly BMT), which has been a big part of my journey.

Thanks for everyone's help on this thread.

All best,

Aventeren

@ gomi- do you think you could make an indicator using your COT from your GomVolumeLadder? I think it may be very beneficial to see them as bars above and below a zero line.
