@MerlinWorld, with respect, I would like to make a suggestion that I think can only help you in your efforts to reach your goal.

I see that, now, you are not in a position to run your system in real-time, because you have your indicators on Trade Station and you can only access TS with a 15-minute delay, which makes your system unusable to you for real-time sim or live money trading. And you can presently only run your system on TS because that's what the indicators are written for. So you are soliciting help from an experienced coder to port your Easy Language code over to C# or C++.

But you are asking for an experienced coder to show up and do your conversion for you, and no one is responding. Well, without knowing what is in your code, I know I could do that. So could several of the people I recognize as professional programmers who have commented so far in this thread.

Why do we not rush to cash in on this opportunity? It is not, really, that we are stupid, or hostile, or can't accept anything new, or because this forum is not friendly, or anything else in that line. It is simply that no one believes your system will work, and we have other things to do. Also, yes, we have seen great hopes before that didn't pan out.

We have had them too. Probably everyone has done the basic calculation that if you double a thousand dollars and keep doubling the resulting amount ten times, you will get a million. I did that, long ago, and my eyes lighted up. Probably everyone has had a great new system that would get them there. I did too, and sometimes it worked, and sometimes it didn't. Sometimes a million dollars is hard to get, somehow.

Now, maybe all this is just because we are all losers. Fine, you can just prove your system, fairly easily, and the amount of interest will be huge.

So here is my suggestion. You can only use Trade Station, and only with a delay. OK, for purposes of working with your system, delayed data is as good as on-time data if you're just doing simulation trading. So my suggestion is to open a trade journal here on FIO, trade your system using TradeStation delayed data, in simulation mode -- entering the trades in the TS simulation at the points where your system tells you to make them, recording the trades and your profit/loss and showing them, copied in from your TS trade summary, every day in your journal, with your thoughts and any realizations for improvement that you have. Do this for a month, and be scrupulously honest with yourself regarding your trades, the reasons for them and the results. Share those publicly every day for other traders to understand what you are doing.

That's it. You will have demonstrated to a skeptical world that your system works -- at least in sim -- you will have no shortage of interest from others who can help you port your TS code into any platform you wish.

Now, to be honest, there can be some drawbacks to this plan, too:

- You'll have to share out the secrets -- at least to a degree, if not the actual code. Certainly many traders who have a system don't want to do this, and it is fine if you don't. But then you have the problem of convincing others to help, without their having any incentive to. Your projections of a million dollars is not an incentive, because they are just projections. Trades would be very different.

- The keeping of a public trade journal can be very difficult personally, because it requires self-honesty and a willingness to be accountable for your results. This can be a problem for people, but it can also be overcome and your trading will benefit from it.

It would be understandable if you decline to take this option. But as it is, you have nothing actually to show anyone except some projections of future success and a couple of screenshots.

Now, if for some reason you can't use TS for sim trading right now, then you will have another problem, but if making a million dollars is what's at stake, there should be enough motivation there to overcome this and any other obstacle.

I wonder if you will see this comment as another attack -- or another idiot's misunderstanding of your ideas -- or whether you will think about it and at least see that the intention is wholly positive and contributory to you, which is how I mean it.

Good luck, and I do mean this.

Bob.

Learn to program, way easier than doubling your money 21 times trading futures.

Or, since nobody seems to be willing to partner with your current hypothesis, consider that as an indicator cloud about the non delusional viability of your theory.

My question: Are you the first person to conceive this idea? I mean it's hard to imagine that none of the computational finance or physics/math PhD's at say, Goldman Sachs or Citadel, have thought of this...and thus acquired all the money ever created.

But, I am happy that you want to get serious by finding someone to divide their time to work for you for free. Dozens of people are trying to help you yet they are collectively too stupid to understand that you have it all figured out.

If you keep quoting me or including @ me replies, I will continue trying to nudge you toward reality. If you stop needing to be right I'll never type in your thread again.

Same for you,

Have a nice day.

Now are there any serious C Sharp programmers in the house so that we can move on to more serious matters here?

Hey, I primarily use Ninjatrader to backtest so I am familiar with C#, would you want to PM the code for me to play around with? Would love to try this out and try some backtests.

if your convert anything to Nt8 you should definitely post the conversion

to make this fun, we could turn it into a SIM challenge for all
everyone starts with a $25 SIM account and leverage the hell out of it.

DAMN!

And I thought I would hit a negative storm hehehe, looks like I hit a Hurricane here.

You know what guys, nevermind.

If there are any C# programmers interested in this, just PM me.

If you don't see the enormous potential of this indicator (and trust me, after 14 years of being a member on the TradeStation forum which is by far the most advanced forum regarding automated strategies and new indicator development, MT4 is not far behind) I have seen a lot and so far, this 2 clouds indicator is by far the best trend finder indicator I've seen and again I've seen 100s.

Finding the daily trend is not that hard, 2 basic MAs can help you do this but find THE BEST PIVOT POINTS using that same indicator?... never seen that before.

This is today's chart, let's see if your trading system/indicator found that best entry for today (see green circle in screenshot).

Cheers,

Merlin

Interesting this is posted in the Psychology section of the forum. I'm sure the intention by the OP was to attach on the Money Management portion of the full subforum title "Psychology and Money Management". Quite sure, based on all available evidence.

We've (mostly) all been there...

I personally place a huge amount of importance on the psychology of trading, including all the automated systems I've written and traded.

No need to, that's the beauty of this indicator, it shows that the trend has turned from down (blue) to up (white) and it shows you the best entry we could find at the time it did it.

Now, NOBODY would have known what would come up next but still, my indicator did it's job.



In fact, most trader who know about the Elliott Wave and Fibonacci would have told you that the downtrend will continue because after that big down move, you had this big pullback to the 50% Fib line so we should have seen wave 3 but...NOPE... my indicator turned white.
