You may need to import Strategies in the near future. Similar practice as indicators, ie they also come in zip and cs formats. Zip ones are easier as you only need to perform the following and no additional compilation required:
Control Center - File - Utilities - Import NinjaScript
For strategies in cs format, you will need to do the following:
1. move them to the Strategy folder (My Documents\NinjaTrader 6.5\bin\Custom\Strategy)
2. Control Center - Tools - Edit NinjaScript - Strategy
3. pick a Strategy and press "F5" to compile
According to NJ Customer Service, you only need to "F5" compile successfully once. All new strategies will then be available. Good luck!

Range Bars are not comparable to Time charts. A time chart (5 Min) completes the bar every 5 min, no matter what the volitilty was up or down. A bar chart e.g. 4 bar chart will only complete a bar if the price has moved 4 ticks or more, and then a new bar is formed. A 10 bar chart will only form a new bar if the price has moved more than 10 ticks. In a bar chart if the move took an hour, you would get only ONE bar, but in a time chart i.e. 5 min. you would have had 12 bars in that one hour. Range bars tend to diminsh the problem of choppy markets.
perryg question if i may,,,, could you elaborate a bit more on when you take trades... ie i get the picture when you post a chart and see the entry bars clearly but i wonder as so often when i log on to trade i may be early to a trade or i may have missed the optimum entry candle... besides the 'rules' do you take any other trades that arent as optimal? thanks joe
