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.

Converting TOS Study to Ninja Strategy

I know others have asked similar questions. But there are a couple of TOS studies that seem worth automating via Ninja (or even in TOS for that matter). Can anyone take the TOS thinkscript code and convert to a Ninja Strategy? Thanks.

Can anyone take the TOS thinkscript code and convert to a Ninja Strategy?

Yes. But if you want someone to do it for you, you'll need to convince someone why they should do it. That includes information on what the indicator does, screen shots of it in action, and the original code.

And you should probably post the request in the section of the platform you want to go to, not from, in this case in the NinjaTrader section --- not in the ThinkOrSwim section.

There is also a thread specifically for Elite Members to request new indicators:


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.
