Ice has priced $US DX out of value for many small traders. Is there a good proxy for $US so traders can use it against the 6's (6A, B, ...)

Hi jmont1:

Was there any response or suggestion yet so far?

Thx

@shuglu & @vont, thanks for the follow up. So far no luck.

Tried to find BBDXY on my NT8 Rithmic or my NT Continuum feed but no luck.

The best proxy may be an inverse correlation.....perhaps the yen or euro....depends on the time of day ...etc.

@xiaosi, yes I have thought about that. And the DX that most people use is heavily weighted to the 6E Euro. So that may be my best option. Wonder how a combination of EURO, GC and perhaps ZB would correlate. Not aware of any indicator that can combined more than one to create a custom "instrument."

Hi Shuglu:

How long have you been using this?

What are some of the practical results?

Profitable?

Thx Shuglu. Later

Dear Mr. Deux,

After some detective work, some disheartening news to me:

The Optimizing feature within Ninja's Strategy Analyzer (NT7) does not function on indicators used within a BloodHound template (a 3rd party software enabling visual programming blocks to quickly backtest based on limitless combination of indicators/parameters)..

I am told that NinjaTrader does not currently have the capability to manipulate indicator settings or values used within another indicator, nor does it have the ability to alter settings used in the Bloodhound Solvers.

Optimization is limited to Raven with the number of contracts, profit target and stop loss positions.

Until the moment this post was written, BlackBird (Strategy manager from the same company) cannot be optimized through the NT Optimizer.

I'll keep looking and will report back when I find something else. In an ideal world, Ninja could have Jeremy Tang (Sharkindicators) or Harry "FatTails" help redesign/architect the NT8 Optimizer from the ground up in order to expose some parameters for proper optimization.

3) I am a bracket trader simply as i dont trade fulltime. I hear lot of stuff on OCO's. My question if one is using the full paid version of Ninjatrader. Once an Market order is filled and an OCO is submitted....can the PC be shutdown such that orders auto execute according to set Stop/Limit of the bracketed OCO.

I also would like to know if OCO orders on NinjaTrader 8 are kept on their trade servers for execution.

Thanks!

It is important to understand that all orders submitted by NinjaTrader rest at the exchange. With the exception of NinjaTrader's implementation of Rithmic and FOREX.com, OCO links are managed by the broker or ISV servers meaning, you can shut down NinjaTrader and orders and OCO will remain working.
