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.

I have tried the service, and downloaded a lot of data

However it seems i can not make UniRenko charts
minute and other charts do work

If i download data over my IQ feed connection (however day by day; i can make UniRenko charts
from the past and do replay

I have donloaded 9Gb from markereplaydate.com but
for the instruments and the period, i am unable to produce charts
often NT7 is also crashing

Any idea ?

I also tried with instrumentss that previously had no historic replay data on my machine
(no mix of sources)

minute charts and other do work...
if in data series i change to unirenko does not work

Off the top of my head I do not have an idea and would suggest you contact my support team.

Given that NT is largely focused on futures, I would love to have the ability to construct synthetic spreads 'instruments' instead of having to do it all in Ninjascript. I envision being able to select legs, ratio, quantity, quote handling, etc, and save that as an instrument that could be loaded up on a DOM or chart with proper bid/ask spreading. Basically what I am asking for is a cheaper alternative to TT autospreader.

Take a look at CTS T4, several webinars on futures.io (formerly BMT) that cover these features

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)

CHART TRADER MODIFICATION

Futures Edge on FIO

Which products do you trade?

 
It would be great if the Chart Trader orders went FULLY ACROSS THE CHART when we are moving them so that we can "AIM" them better and easier.

When ever we are moving an order around we lose our Crosshairs - so we lose the ability to know if we are putting the order right over the the high or low that we wanted on the far far left of the chart.

It would be great if the order just went Fully Across the Chart so that we can aim with it better.

It would make placing an order to a far far left wayyyy easier.

~And I know about the setting in Chart Trader that lets you set the orders to a "percentage of screen" and that we can set it at 100. But that leaves them across the screen 100% ALL the time and then they may kind of mix up visually and aesthetically with horizontal lines and levels of support and ressis.

Thanks!

Yea I know about that setting. Maybe some people don't know it.

but I didn't want the orders across the entire chart ALL the time because they will mix with current support and ressistance lines and other horizontal lines.

Thanks

I edited the first post so that it includes that.

Bid/Ask Data

It is my understanding that NT8 will store bid/ask tick data will there be an addition of indicators like volume breakdown, footprint charts, etc that use that information or will we still have to go to third party programmers/vendors to get these indicators/charts ?

I noticed NT8 will have a freestyle scrolling feature by pressing the "ctrl" key and using the mouse to move around in time and price.

Please ditch the "press the ctrl key" requirement, its a real hassle. Every other software I know allows you to click an empty area of chart and drag around in time and price simultaneously without having to press a button, as it should be.

There is an indicator around that does this but its not ideal since it scrolls even when placing trend lines and such and who knows if it will be updated for NT8.

Thanks

Please Please Please include a snapshot of the code that was ran in the strategy analyzer. During strat development I open new instances of strat analyzer to compare changes and get lost in what changes where made.
