Which ones you will use in 2012.

What Trading goals would you like to achieve in 2012.

What 2 or 3 High Probability set-ups are you going to focus on in 2012.

There is often alot of talk about which indicators are the best for day trading.........well here's is my opinion.

#1 news indicator

#2 Trading Time indicator

#3 Pivots

Without these......you can't trade.

i agree that these will prolly always be on my charts.. am on a quest to slim my charts and let price do the talking.. its not easy, but i have 2+ years of long hours in front of the charts so hopefully things come together for me!

dont believe anything you hear and only half of what you see

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

But still valid!

As far as "real" indicators go, I only have 1 MA and pivots, and I'm not even sure whether to keep (all of) the pivots....
And then I have a whole bunch of little helpers....yep , and volume.

Though I couldn't name three without which I couldn't trade (presumed I could trade with them for arguments sake). Happy as long as I'm allowed to draw on the charts.

What news indicator do you like best? Can you post a download link (anyone can respond with your opinion on the best News indicator for NT if you would)?

Market Structure - need to see the big picture - Market Profile and TPOs and Weeky VWAPs are excellent for casing structure

Momentum - Cum Delta Vol on a larger time chart shows divergence between buyers/sellers

Entry - Footprint Profile with Cum Delta and Total Volume is excellent

Im not sure exactly what is meant by a news indicator. But if you simply mean an alert to let you know when news is coming out, I use this: https://futures.io/ninjatrader/9191-jteconnews-reader-here-stand-alone-app.html

This is a standalone version but you can do a search for a version that attaches to your chart as an indicator. Personally I prefer having it separate so it doesn't clutter up my charts. Excellent little piece of software

Diversification is the only free lunch

Hi Jeff,


Can you explain me what is this trading time indicator? do you refer to a time bar indicator? I don't use NT6.5 so I can not see it.

Thank you so much

Hey Chris,

I"ll attach the cs. of the "Trading Time" indicator that I use. (ninja 6.5)

I use to do what you do on the news.........only I used to get it from Barrons.com......as my pre-market routine but the indicator on the chart eliminates that step and serves as a constant reminder for me......


Ahah good one Jeff,

Totally true, but I already know all the psicological lessons of trading, it will be a help for putting them in practice... You shared this indicator with Chris for NT6.5, is it available for NT7 or any place to know about it?
