Welcome to futures io.

futures io is the largest futures trading community on the planet, with over 90,000 members. At futures io, our goal has always been and always will be to create a friendly, positive, forward-thinking community where members can openly share and discuss everything the world of trading has to offer. The community is one of the friendliest you will find on any subject, with members going out of their way to help others. Some of the primary differences between futures io and other trading sites revolve around the standards of our community. Those standards include a code of conduct for our members, as well as extremely high standards that govern which partners we do business with, and which products or services we recommend to our members.

At futures io, our focus is on quality education. No hype, gimmicks, or secret sauce. The truth is: trading is hard. To succeed, you need to surround yourself with the right support system, educational content, and trading mentors – all of which you can find on futures io, utilizing our social trading environment.

With futures io, you can find honest trading reviews on brokers, trading rooms, indicator packages, trading strategies, and much more. Our trading review process is highly moderated to ensure that only genuine users are allowed, so you don’t need to worry about fake reviews.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading sites:
  • We are here to help. Just let us know what you need.
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive in our community.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendors advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, we can help you find it.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

i know i have no idea about the inner workings, but does this happen to be where the link issues are?

No, this is simply due to half entered data, wanted to give you sth to play around with.
The links were very well hidden in charts, in fact, I had to delete the charts, these links can be like viruses.....
Have you tried the MC yet, it should be rather quick now?

Ninja Results importer


Hi guys and girls. I have made a new version of my importer of the results from Ninja.

Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).


New version now supports:
1. The en-US locale (choosable) which might have been a issue for those of you having it as default in your system:-)
2. Definable delimiter of the cells in the csv file (defaults to ",").
3. Better handling of the dates and times

How to use:
1. Export the trades list from the backtest results from ninja in CSV format. The format of P/L must be in points, I will add the support for other two types later.
2. Load the file in the program
3. Click Import and choose the destination to save the journal.


done...

The built exe is standard .NET assembly. If you have .NET you should be able to run it. If you have NinjaTrader it will run:-)
I have attached also the sources, so feel free to modify.

Happy browsing through your data...

It is amazing what is possible when someone knows what he is doing, (unlike me trying to fry my cpu with the worst vba code known to mankind).

Thank you a lot @petrmac! I will play with it tomorrow, also a good way to test my MC engine a bit more....I want to have a few more performance tests.

And perhaps I find a way to make it a bit faster (although it is probably fairly optimized now, at least for my skill level which pretty much reflects the fact that until two days ago I only ever copy pasted vb code).

The amazing thing is that although this time is obviously too short to learn vb, it is plenty to learn to dislike vb.....I rather have C#.

Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).

Just so I better understand, this will take trades from NinjaTrader and import them into the Journal being developed in this thread?

I am so proud of you guys, taking my example and making it 100x better

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)
Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.

Yes Mike,

just like you write here. Some little example will help:

1. first you open the trades list like in the picture. (The values must be in points as seen in picture) and on the grid press Save as...
Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).


2. I have attached the resulting csv file
test.csv

3. And finally the rustling excel file that is created to a specific location you choose after the Import button is pressed.
test-journal.zip


Hope this is self explanatory enough...

No need to mention that the grid for live/sim trades is exactly the same so the trades could be imported as well.

Yes, it's awesome, makes my efforts look like a kindergarden project, lol!

The only thing I ask myself is whether it has to import into a clean journal or whether it finds the end of the existing records and pastes them below....
I also have a few ideas what more to do with it, but that's entirely out of my league.

If so, write them here. The ideas might come handy. Perhaps me or someone else who knows C# could help.
The sources are available.

It creates a new journal each time (it is compiled in the program as embedded resource). But I guess the adding to existing could be implemented. It would just take some time.

I might also add in a more recent version of the journal, once it is stable.
