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)
Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.

I have one based on Van Tharp's R-multiples, works great on live trading but horrible on market replay. It is based on this code here: Dionysus New Year Present – Ninja & Excel - NinjaTrader Support Forum

FYI, the reason it does not work in market replay is because excel hangs when to much data is sent to it via a Interop. The solution to this is to build a RTD server, a DDE link or scratch excel for the trade log. I am taking the path of scratching excel as a trade log and building a MySQL database that will act as a trade log. From MySQL I can export the data to excel or use programs suchs as R or Matlab to play with the numbers.

Either way, I hope this code below is a good starting point for ya.

I removed my Entry Rules and exit rules, but keep the parts about sending trades to excel.. Keep in mind this is based on Iorder execution rules.

Also, I am sorry about removing a lot of the code, but I really can't share too much. However, if you are experienced in building trade systems than there is plenty information here to get you started building a log that exports to excel.

If you have any questions feel free to ask.

Cheers,

Sody

If there is a lot of interest in this, I can build a generic on based on MA crosses. Let me know.
