Well from one of the programmers who contacted me, apparently NinjaTrader indicators are also programmed in C# so when the 2 clouds will be converted into C#, you should be able to see it on your chart.

Btw guys, maybe I'm missing something big here but I don't see what the fuss is all about those phantom bars that skew the Renko charts.

I mean look at these 2 Renko charts with 0.3 pt (3 ticks) Renko bars.

I haven't seen a gap in today's chart so I had to go back to yesterday to find them and I only found 2 missing bars.

If you click this checkbox here, you will fill those gaps with fake bars but it's not like you will fill 10% of all the bars you see on your chart, it's not even 1% I would say 1 bar in 1,000 is missing so I don't think that backtesting with Renko bars will be that big of a deal here.

Stay tuned folks, we'll soon find out the answer to Big Mike's question regarding...me!!! Really???...


Quoting 
He asks for help but refuses to listen! Who is right, him or us?

You see Mike, it's not that I refuse to listen, I do listen but ONLY to smart comments (I have zero tolerance for stupidity) and I refuse to be indoctrinated (aka "...Think like us or get the F... out").

You may not understand what I'm trying to do here and that's ok, not everybody is a visionary ( haha just JOKING with ya ;-) ).

Don't worry, you will all get it one day when my little team of programmers and I post the indicator codes and start to build a working strategy with it and post screenshots of our backtests.

Cheers,

Merlin

Account Percent Risk

I understand you are risking 5 ticks ($25) to make 5 ticks ($25). My question is what percent of your account are you risking (based on $25)?

Also if you decide to use NinjaTrader and need coding help, pm me.

I risk 5 ticks to make "50 ticks" or 5 points, not "5 ticks". It's a 10:1 ratio game here. If you want to play super conservative, you can even get in only at those multiple double top/bottom that you see everywhere in the Renko charts.

You place your limit order at the top and then your stop loss just 1-2 ticks above your entry so if it doesn't do a double top/bottom, you lose peanuts but again, you will be surprised as to how many of those double top/bottom you will find in this type of chart especially if you have 0.3 pt Renko charts (see green rectangles in screenshot below).

Below are those double top/bottom done on today's chart...

Pretty much all of them would have given you your 5 pts without risking more than 1-2 ticks.

Now that's "HD Trading" baby yeaaaahhhhh.

It's most certainly not a new idea.

We've told you, but you aren't listening...and you aren't reading for yourself to educate yourself (so that you don't need to be told "it won't work"). The only thing left is to learn on your own, which is usually what is needed anyway. Along the way, you'll justify all the reasons it didn't work in this example or this day, you'll add and subtract more "filters". Seriously, you don't think I've seen this before?

Best of luck, most the serious seasoned traders are not going to continue to try to help you any longer with your overwhelmingly negative attitude.

If you would just change your attitude to be open to input, you'd stand to learn something useful.

Glad you liked. You can catch up with Part 2 here...

https://futures.io/psychology-money-management/47568-millionaire-10-weeks-conversation-broker-part-2-trading-system.html

However, no need to get passed page 1, it's just the same old same old bitching from negative people saying "I'm a loser, this won't work, I will fail, I'm just a kid who don't know shit, etc", you know...the standard tape that people throw at people with new ideas.

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 with ME you haven't. I'm NOT everybody else.

4,500 views in the past 3 days... why do you think that is? Luck??? I don't think so, your members are smart and can see some VERY INTERESTING STUFF here.

Like I said, I WILL NOT BE INDOCTRINATED.

YOU will benefit from MY research not the other way around. In the past 14 years of research on MULTIPLE forums, I heard it all from guys like you and it makes me wanna cry. "It will not work, forget it, if it would have been possible somebody would have done it already, blah blah blah..."

You can laugh all you want, just wait until we start building a solid system around my 2 clouds indicator and do some backtesting. You'll see...

The stories of all the greatest scientists in the world were not about suppression and criticism. They were about liberation. Liberation is about setting yourself free from your biases. You are embedded in an attitude that will kill any idea from the git-go. Why? Because you've accepted defeat.

Developing a trading strategy is no different than developing a strategy to go to Mars. You enter with a "clean" mind. You have knowledge, you have your opinion. What you don't have is the conclusive result. And that's what you're supposed to work towards. If you can't clear your head of all the garbage that obviously has been accumulated, you are dead on the H2O.

Perhaps all of this will wiz by you at the speed of light. But at the end of the day, YOU are defeating your own project.

"Like I said, I WILL NOT BE INDOCTRINATED."

That says everything about you. You're not willing to learn.

There is a HUUUUUUUUGE difference between learning from a tip or two from you and being told to sit there, shut up and listen and being brainwashed by things that I've heard 100 times in my past 14, then again 15 years because I started learning about Futures in 2004.

Right now, I need programming help to convert my code and then I will need help to find the best entry points and that's about it. I don't need anything else.
