Don't find anywhere that I can click to get in...just see it says I have already registered go look in email for link but haven't received an email either last week when originally signed up and not now an hour ahead of time.

Hello traders. Has anyone used the GPS Forex EA. If si how did it perform? Also does anyone know anything about Elysium Capital who trade in Cryptocurrencies? If anyone has any comments on either of these two products I'd appreciate your feedback.
Cheers Sharkie
PS. Also has anyone invested in Yieldnotes and results thereof?

Hi,

Thank you for the question. I believe you are referring to the MotiveWave webinar event?

I am sorry you had trouble registering or attending the event. There were some issues with GoToWebinar that day.

If you wish to ask any further questions, or if you wish to watch the webinar recording, please see the thread below:

Hi,

Thanks for the question and congrats on your first post @RMC1308!

The webinar recording for MotiveWave is below, it is part of the Zytrade broker thread as they were the sponsor/presenter that arranged MotiveWave to present.



If you have any further questions about that webinar/event, please reply to that thread.

Just incase anyone else was wondering, we strictly prohibit this behavior. Anyone doing this will be permanently banned, and we will do anything possible to help law enforcement take action to enforce anti-piracy laws against the person.

Dear,

I have read many reviews but still lost.

I have backtested many strategies in Tradestation for a long time. Now I am looking for backtesting and optimization software for Stock/ETF. (only 1 symbol for 200 strategies took me for 6 months in TradeStation.)

My criterias are: Multi-strategy, multi-symbol, multi time frame, backtesting, parameter optimization, walkforward-analysis, and automated trading software for Stocks/ETF (forex is useful) and fast.

Maybe your area is different than mine but please give your thoughts on these software selections on most powerful fast reliable backtesting software.

At this time I am previewing

Multichart
Tradestation
amibroker
Metatrader 5
Metastock
StrategyQuantX
Quantconnect
Quantopian
smartquant
TradeIdeas
NinjaTrader


Thank you all very much for your help, assistance, and your knowledge towards choosing the right platform and save thousands of hours.

Thank you very much.
James

Hello All,

I am using NinjaTrader NT7. I code my own strategy. My strat trades 3 instruments (futures). I want to have a pice of code which exits all my open positions (of the 3 instruments),and stop the strat for the rest of the day session IF the Total realizedPnL and Total unrealizedPnlL (from all these 3 instruments) is >= maxdailyprofit. For this reason I tried the following of code but seems not to work as expected.

//-------------------
....

Into the OBU, which includes the if (BarsInProgress == i , i=1,2,3), I write :

if( Positions[0].GetProfitLoss(Close[0], PerformanceUnit.Currency)
+ Positions[1].GetProfitLoss(Close[0], PerformanceUnit.Currency)
+ Positions[2].GetProfitLoss(Close[0], PerformanceUnit.Currency)
+ Performance.RealtimeTrades.TradesPerformance.Currency.CumProfit) > maxdailyprofit )

{

ExitAll = true; // ExitAll = bool variable

// ExitLong();
// ExitShort();

Print( GetAccountValue(AccountItem.RealizedProfitLoss)
+ Positions[0].GetProfitLoss(Close[0], PerformanceUnit.Currency)
+ Positions[1].GetProfitLoss(Close[0], PerformanceUnit.Currency)
+ Positions[2].GetProfitLoss(Close[0], PerformanceUnit.Currency)
+ " " + Time[0]);
}

//-----------------


foreach (var instrument in BarsArray)

{
foreach (Account acct in Cbi.Globals.Accounts)

{

if (acct.Positions != null && ExitAll )

{

PositionCollection positions = acct.Positions;

foreach (Position pos in positions)

{

if (BarsInProgress == 0 && pos.Account.Name == "Sim101" && pos.Instrument.FullName == "XX 12-20" )

{

if (Positions[0].MarketPosition == MarketPosition.Long )

{
ExitLong("");
}

if (Positions[0].MarketPosition == MarketPosition.Short )

{
ExitShort("");
}

}

//------------------------------------

if (BarsInProgress == 1 && pos.Account.Name == "Sim101" && pos.Instrument.FullName == "XX 12-20")

{

if (Positions[1].MarketPosition == MarketPosition.Long )

{
ExitLong("");
}

if (Positions[1].MarketPosition == MarketPosition.Short )

{
ExitShort("");
}

}

//----------------------------------

if (BarsInProgress == 2 && pos.Account.Name == "Sim101" && pos.Instrument.FullName == "XX 12-20")

{

if (Positions[2].MarketPosition == MarketPosition.Long )

{
ExitLong("");
}

if (Positions[2].MarketPosition == MarketPosition.Short )

{
ExitShort("");
}

}

//-------------------------------------


}

}

}

}



So, any suggestion would be much appreciated.

Thank you in advance

Hi @Sharkie28, you are absolutely correct in that we made an error! If you follow this thread post-by-post, you'll see that somehow I accidentally skipped over your request. My apologies! I believe it was probably because I had to take special action to ban the member right next to your post, which apparently distracted me enough to forget to reply to your post. Very sorry.

You've asked many questions in a single post, so I've had to create multiple threads for your questions.

Here is the first:



Here is the second:



Here is the third:



If you have any further follow-up questions, please post them in their respective threads above. If you still continue to not receive any responses, it is probably because people are not understanding you well or the question is too broad. For example, of course people trade all kinds of Treasuries here, so asking that is very broad. You should ask something more specific in that case probably.

Thank you,
Mike

I am a new futures spreader that have been trading the outrights for years, and have now switched to futures spreads.

I would like to know if anyone can recommend the Moores Research on futures, or if the spread software, ""SeasonAlgo" would be a better choice for the analytics.

Please use that thread for any further questions or follow-ups. Also, I want to mention that if these two things are quite different, it's probably better to ask two separate questions.

Hello everyone, new to Ninjatrader8 what is the best way to work around the individual windows and create one workspace that when I open, each window is opened instead of opening each window one by one?

Thanks

Hi,

I'd like to watch 'John Ehlers on Effective Indicators for Trading Systems' webinar.
Unfortunately it needs Adobe Flash.
As you probably know:
'Since Adobe no longer supports Flash Player after December 31, 2020 and blocked Flash content from running in Flash Player beginning January 12, 2021, Adobe strongly recommends all users immediately uninstall Flash Player to help protect their systems.'

What should I do to have access to this recording?



Thanks,
Krzysztof

Thanks for the question. This is a known issue with our site at the moment. You can find various discussions about it in our issues thread:



But the short answer is, it is a known and high priority item to get all older (Flash) webinars moved to new format for easy viewing. It's a work in progress.

Hello, I used the search bar but didn't see much insight into what I was looking for.

I bought mack' price action manual a week ago. Sense then I've read it multiple times and even filled half a note book with notes.

But what I'm still struggling with is counting legs REAL TIME to look for second entries.

Some days I feel like I have it and in demo catch 2-3 good trades.

Other days its like I can't read them at all and miss every trade.

Is it possible for someone to explain counting legs perhaps in their own definition?

Maybe I'd understand it better from someone else?

Thank you so much.

Sorry for the long question.

He is also a member of Futures.io as well @erwinbeckers

Hi All,

I have recently joined this forum. I am looking for help in creating a thinkscript (ThinkOrSwim Platform) for the following criteria and need help with the same. The objective is to get the list of stocks whose price has been relatively stable in the last 10 days even though there has been considerable (200k +) volume every day. If this is already existing or if anyone can help share this script, kindly do so. My apologies in case I am posting this in the wrong place.

Additional clarity on the Scan Criteria: Want to create a scan wherein I select all stocks whose last price is within the range of 2% from its high and low in the last 10 days. It would help if I can change this 10 days to be any number of days. Also the last price can be the last price for today or yesterday. For e.g. a stock has high of 100$ in the last 1 month and low of 98$ then I want this particular stock to be selected in the scan I write in the TOS platform. Please let me know if you need any additional information.

Hello Guys
I have Question on the Datafeed.
Can somebody do a Statement on the Quality of Mt5 Data with the average Bucketshop Broker overall ?
i know Market Depth is Nonsense on this One but i`d like to know how close we can get to Spot for ex. Iceberg orders.
How close is it to the Maching Engine BuyMarket = Sell Limit.
Cheers

Not really sure what you are asking in terms of, "...how close we can get to Spot for ex. Iceberg orders.
How close is it to the Maching Engine BuyMarket = Sell Limit..."??

What data/Instruments are you looking at? If it's spot forex, that market is OTC (Over the counter) and as such, you will be hard pressed to find any meaningful volume or limit data simply because there is no centralized exchange. Any attempt at order flow analysis on spot FX is going to be difficult.

As the spot FX market is OTC, add together the fact that you spoke of bucketshop brokers, you can expect all sorts of shenanigans especially during volatile or illiquid periods. This will also apply to all products which are not traded over a centralised exchange.

In general, you need to see if the broker is an 'A book' or 'B Book broker'. If a 'B book', God have mercy on your soul.


I know AMP Futures offers MT5 as a trading platform where you need to pay relevant exchange fees etc so all data from such sources is as good as it would be for anyone else. Of course, it depends on your pc and internet set-up but if data is from a established exchange and your technology is up to scratch, you shouldn't have issues with quality of data.

Question: What should my timeframe be for my TPO chart if I'm trading MES during normal hours?

The Volume profile is unaffected by the evening if I limit the TPO to 830-1600 they are practically in sync. For instance this last week. With the TPO set to cover a 24hr trading period, night hours form their own low volume bell curve that I feel like skews the whole day. Any input would be appreciated, Thanks!

In addition, I would invite you to take a look at a very recent TPO discussion that is taking place as a result of a recent webinar. You might want to watch the webinar(s) [there is one now, another is scheduled] from Trevor Harnett and ask your question again in the Tradovate AMA thread. Tradovate is sponsoring this series of webinars, which is why it is in their thread.

I'd like to make sure I'm posting my trading journal correctly in FIO for the Feb trading journal challenge. I have posted a PDF file of a sample journal within that thread. The PDF was created in a Google Sheet and shared as a PDF to my message yesterday. Can someone tell me should I be creating a URL differently within the IO website?

Hi

I hope that you are very well. Iīm basically looking for some bookmap information. Because I just moving forward to bookmap, but I realize that is very difficult fo find some developers freelancer. And why here nobody can share some bookmap indicator. I know that bookmap`s indicator their are developed in Java language. So I think that it would be great to increase the information and indicator about bookmap her at Futures.io.

best regards

Miguel

Yes, you can use search option to search for it, if you don't find what you are looking for then you can also make a thread for it.

If you Google, "how to watch flash videos without flash player", you should get plenty of solutions.

Try one that is most effective for you. You may already have something installed that can play flash videos. Solution may also depend on whether you are trying to watch on a pc or a mobile.

I've been away from trading for awhile and looking to get back into it. Is there anywhere I can find data for the YM and RTY for NT8 to practice on? I've been able to find data for CL but not the YM and RTY. Thanks.

Hi,

Welcome back. I've created a new thread for you here:



Someone should be along shortly to answer you in that thread.

Hey Mike, I made a post on elitetrader yesterday and I would like to also put it on futures.io since I'm sure there are differing audiences. I'm asking if it's ok to post it because a member named "ntcat" posted a question about this company awhile back and apparently he was asked to take down his post. I've included my elitetrader post below. Is it kosher? Am I violating any terms? Thanks!

"...

I don't know if this thread is dead (hopefully not), but here's an automated system that I hope this community considers looking into. The name is TruTrade (not trueTrade and not truetrader). The website has a telephone number that struggles to answer and cannot take a voicemail. The domain registration information is shielded by a registrar in Panama (I think). There are no performance results posted on the website, nor any mention of backtests or forward walk testing. No drawdown stats, Sharpe ratios, ... anything. There are no reviews of this system on the internet (but the company does provide ample 'live' trade example videos in their YouTube channel.) The only 'information' I could find on the net were various press releases from the company made to look like news articles planted on news aggregator websites. These releases provide the name Danny Rebello of Scottsdale, AZ. All of these press releases are from late 2020. Essentially the only way you can find out more is if you sign up on the website for a live demo. A few red flags to be sure.

Nevertheless, curiosity got ahold of me and I signed up for the live demo. Within minutes I received a call on my cell from "Nevada" ... which I usually ignore as telemarketing ... but thinking that it might be them I picked up. It was and I setup a time for him to call back and give me a demo. I was hoping to see the bot trade during optimal trading hours (for me that's 8:30am - 11:00am CST), but he offered to call back in 2 hrs., which was about 1:00pm CST. Definitely a lull time during the day which I initially wasn't thrilled with.

Actually it was a good time to see this thing because if it could be profitable during a choppy part of the day, maybe it would do really well during non chop periods. And to be honest, it looked pretty good. 3 profitable trades in the 50 min demo and the chart had absolutely no discernible trending whatsoever.

The sales pitch was not heavy and did not try to create scarcity by offering a "today only" deal. In fact, the guy who called didn't seem to care one way or another when I said that I couldn't pull a $7K trigger on this deal at that moment. He just said to call him back if I was interested.

So, although this has piqued my interest, I'm skeptical (by nature) due to all of the red flags noted earlier. Look, I wouldn't be adverse to dropping the $7K for the bot (or $3500 to trade micros only.... which is a little strange TBH) if it was going to meet my needs.

I know elitetrader typically has a history of shooting down the idea of automated systems but I thought I'd toss this out there. Hopefully, someone here (1) knows something about this system or (2) would be willing to setup a live demo for themselves and report back their impressions.

And, before I get accused of being some type of advertising shill plant by the company because I'm a brand new member here, I assure you that's not the case. I'm just a trader that looks at everything. I've been slightly active on futures.io and a regular participant on usethinkscript.com where you can see that I've never endorsed someone's product.

Sincere thanks to anyone who responds.

Connecting tradovate to Sierra Charts?

Does anyone know if you can connect your tradovate account to Sierra Charts to do the once a month verification for non-professional fees? If possible are there extra costs in doing so?

HI,
I have an idea that seems to be working and I need someone to program for me a "Line" maker(variable horizontal) for where the ATR(calculated in 1/2's), is variable(i use 10day)
and sets up 6 lines(3 above/3 below) (is +/- 0.5ATR and +/-1.0ATR and +/-1.5ATR) based on the Tick open for NT8.(and/or TOS).

I'll use the ATR10(calculated) at 8:20amEST for /GC and
9:00amEST for /CL and
9:30amEST /ES/NQ/YM/RTY
(I was thinking about having 6 lines above/below(12 total) but I dont know if that is overkill....(it is good for 1/4ATR's esp. on BIG moving days).

my first time posting... Glad to be here.
THANX.
Chris.

Sorry do not know Tradovato and the purpose of Tradovato and what it does, so unfortunately I am not able to help.

I want to start by apologizing.
Although I have been a member for a number of years, I still don't know how to use this site properly.
I can't figure out how to search for a thread pertinent to what I want to ask. Mea culpa, my bad.

My platform is NT 8 (64 bit), the latest version.
I would like to have an EMA that can change color as it changes its slope by any minimal angle or, perhaps, an indicator that can do that for several MA's.

I believe that there must be one for NT8 as I believe there is one for NT7.

Thank you so very much to the charitable soul that points me in the right direction.

What is the quickest or easiest way to get help with Jigsaw? I just purchased it on Friday and I can't get a connection but apparently there's no support on the weekend. I'm hoping I can get help first thing Monday morning but I'm not sure which way would be the best way to go. Skype? Support ticket? Email?
Thanks!

I am looking for a NT 7 indicator that paints the bars Dodger blue when the fast MA (4) crosses 0 from above, then when the fast MA (4) crosses 0 beneath 0, the bars turn red. Can anyone help me? 12/26/9 is OK IF I can change the MA parameters. Any help will be greatly appreciated. I need a .zip file for NT 7 as I am not a programmer. Thank you!! Scottiep

I realize the weekend has passed, but you can and should still direct your question to Jigsaw here in their AMA thread:

Hi,

For this type of request (more custom), you should submit your question here:



That thread contains thousands of similar requests, and other users work to fulfill those requests or point you towards an existing indicator that already does the job.

Thanks for posting (and sorry I missed it until now). I created a new thread for your question:



I am sure someone will answer soon, but if not, you have two more avenues to make sure someone does. You can post in either of the below threads, but start with the first because it's for strategies.

Hi,

Does anyone have a customizable stock screener for NT8?
I like the Market analyzer but I'd like a screener

Thanks

@stumbras
It's something that needs to be built on your methodology.
By having a decent sample of trades, you should find based on the MAE and MFE the right compromise to maximize profits.
You just can't start to trail your stop by 'x' ticks just because someone else with a methodology maybe opposite to yours is doing well.
Do some tests and maths will tell you whether it is worth it or not trailing your stop and if yes, by how much.

Hi Everybody,

I have a quick question:

Is anyone using a VPN on their desktop PC that they trade from?

I'm considering installing a VPN for more online security in general BUT I don't know if it will significantly, noticeably, slow down my transaction speeds as I am a short term, in and out day trader in futures markets.

The VPN's I'm looking at are NORD and Express VPN's. If anyone has personal experience with this and has tried it, can you kindly give me a heads up yeah or nay.

I'm using a good Falcon Trading PC, and I trade using Think or Swim Platform, trading foreign currencies and the Euro, sometime the grain markets as well.

Any feedback will be most appreciated!

Stay Healthy and Happy,

Mike
