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.
