This looks great. I looked for the indicators to download so I can follow along. I can not seem to locate them. Can anyone post the pages or links where they are at in the download section. I did a search and can not locate them.

I appreciate any help on this, it looks like a great system

Good idea. I will find the locations of the indies and post links to this thread. Thanks

Charts, Parameters and Templates

This thread is a work in process. More than a teaching thread, it is a discussion thread. As I work with this strategy everyday, I continue to observe and formulate a different way to view the strategy on the charts. This morning I created a 30 minute chart for a swing trade. Just before I uploaded the images to this post I created a 30 minute chart for the micro 6E. The one thing I noticed with all the charts was if you just took the trade in the direction of the FTZ_SharkTrend; you would have success. I am going to describe each template for which I have been shortening the parameter. But next I am going to create a new template to expand the parameters on the TSI and CCI to match the colored plot of the SharkTread and adjust the anaSuperTrend for a wider stop to accommodate price action. And I am going to create templates for Range and Renko charts for the 6E and YM.

PARAMETERS:

Template v1 and 30min v1:

Stop:
The stop is set by the anaSuperTrend 1.618, 14, 5; "Calculate on bar close" set to "True" This was the parameters before I tweaked the chart for the contest.

Indicators: "Calculate on bar close" set to "False"
FTZ_SharkTreand_v01.......1, 21, ZLEMA, 21, ZLEMA, 1
Tsi4JeffFromTMFT......... 6, 14, 21, 30, -30, EMA; ZLEMA, 21, ZLEMA, 9, 30
ESFXtrader_CCIBarCounterv7.....14

Template v2:

Stop:
The stop is set by the anaSuperTrend 1, 1, 1; "Calculate on bar close" set to "True"

Indicators: "Calculate on bar close" set to "False"
FTZ_SharkTreand_v01.......1, 14, ZLEMA, 14, ZLEMA, 1
Tsi4JeffFromTMFT......... 3, 9, 14, 30, -30, EMA; ZLEMA, 14, ZLEMA, 6, 30
ESFXtrader_CCIBarCounterv7.....14

Template v3:

Stop:
The stop is set by the anaSuperTrend 1.2, 2, 1; "Calculate on bar close" set to "True"

Indicators: "Calculate on bar close" set to "False"
FTZ_SharkTreand_v01.......1, 14, ZLEMA, 14, ZLEMA, 1
Tsi4JeffFromTMFT......... 3, 9, 14, 30, -30, EMA; ZLEMA, 21, ZLEMA, 9, 30
Tsi4JeffFromTMFT......... 6, 14, 20, 30, -30, EMA; ZLEMA, 21, none, 1, 30
ESFXtrader_CCIBarCounterv7.....14

Version 3 was just a dual TSI that I created to time a trade where you enter the trade on a background color and you exit when the background changes from dark to light. I find it is a little difficult to tweak an indicator if I do not know how the parameters calculate the indicator. So I am going to ask Fat Tails how the SharkTrend plots and TMFT how the TSI4Jeff plots with respect to the parameters. Both indicators have both a MA1 and a MA2; and/or short periods and long periods. So is that a MA of a MA? I do not know. Then I can tweak the indicators with a little more knowledge. And I have some reading material on the TSI to post. True Strength Index.

So next week, I am going to tweak the 30 min chart to swing trade IWM or SSO live. And I want to create a 12 Range chart for M6E to swing trade the September contract live. And see how this 3 minute charts can gain consistency to trade live.

I will be on-line all weekend and for my next post, I will find the links on futures.io (formerly BMT) for the indicators

Beta Charts

I have never downloaded this file before, do you just download these and import them like a indicator? Or do you still need to download the indicators as well.

Thanks

Don't be afraid to learn how to use the futures.io (formerly BMT) search feature.

template download

you download the file from the post. save it in documents, downloads (received files). then go to saved location and (right click) "copy" on template file. go to documents, ninja trader 7, templates, charts....... then (right click) "paste" on template list. the template then will be available in the data series window of NT7 for creating a chart. you must have the indicators available in NT7 or they will be missing from the chart. if you double click on the template file, you can see the list of indicators in the template


Thanks Jeff didn't see your post. Thanks for the TSI4Jeff.

The ESFX CCI is in his TF trading thread. The SharkTrend is in Sharky's classroom. Jeffs TSI is in one of his thread. One or all are in the download section. Also if you click on search in the search engine and enter the indy name, you can find some links. And finally I think one or all may be Elite downloads, so if you are not one, be one. I figured I wasted $8500 before I found futures.io (formerly BMT) and made the best investment of my trading life, **** $50 ****. If you want to play, you have to pay. I need to get back to cooking dinner.
