Welcome to futures io.

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.


You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

@CrazyTex

What is your power supply, and is enough to drive the video cards/monitors?

cpu usage


If you are running windows, click on task manager>performance tab>resource monitor>processes and check off every box you can find that is a ninja process. This will give you a total of percentage of use on the your CPU.

@crazyTex

Not enough power....How many video cards do you have?
I would suggest that you go to Seasonic site and use their software to calculate how much power you need according to your setup.

Do the measurement tomorrow during normal trading hours. I would imagine the usage is higher, especially when you change symbols. Also, look at all the services running--do you need them all? Can you free up some resources?

And why aren't you watch Dallas whip up on the Giants? shame on you...

it stays about the same its just you never know when it says not responding if its going to come back or not everything eles on the computer works great regardless of if ninja is up and running or not and ninja acts the same wether or not anything eles is running and I cleared all the other workspace out where there only the work space with indcators and one blank. And regardless of what the president says I built my trading account and I have to figure thing out when every i can I would rather be a the dallas game in the new stadium that I have yet to be able to see i Hear it texas size!

I have 2 intel xeon e5520@2.27ghz processors and 24 gb ram and 4 nvidia quadro fx 380 video cards with 8 dell u2410 monitors. I been reading everyone talking about overclocked processors and was wondering if that would help with the speed problom I seem to be having with ninja running six charts with 4 to five indicators on them. If i switch insturments for example for es to cl the ninja my frezz up. Even with just one insurment loaded on all the charts ninja is slugish. having to wait a few seconds at times after i right click for the drop down menu to apear. I was wondering if cranking up my cpu some might help this since while ninja is running in the task manager window in cpu history I see only a hand ful of cores working. Everything eles on the computer has no problem even while ninja is acting slugish and I was thinking of going to a water cooled system to quitten down my computer does anyone have any sugestions on the best system. any info would be appricatied.

Most likely the problem is the indicators themselves.

Close your workspace. Create a new workspace with no indicators. Create six charts, again no indicators. Can you duplicate the problem? If no, add one indicator at a time until you find the one causing the problem.

You can also list the names of the indicators you use here, someone may recognize the problem one.

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)
