Hello,

Please, could you tell me if there is an indicator (Ninja Trader 8) that plots sup/res from a txt file?

For instance, I've got some some sup/res lines for ES (3102 , 3105.25 , 3110.75 , etc). All these lines are in a txt file. I need an indicator that plots these sup/res on my charts.

Best!

Thanks for the question.

I've created a dedicated thread for you here, where someone will answer soon:

I wonder if anyone has any advice on how I could become very knowledgeable on trading crude oil. I am thinking books or websites that I could read from the ground up. If anyone has any advice, I would love to hear it.
I have a futures account, and I have not invested in oil - it seems so volatile.
Happy Day to you!
Greta

Hello traders!

Let's suppose I've got 2 live accounts (Ninja Trader 8). First one datafeed is Rithmic, second one datafeed is CQG!

Instead using 2 DOMs and have to click twice, I'd like to know if there is an add-on , with just 1 click I could place orders on both accounts (rithmic and cqg).

Thank you!

Hi Folks,
I already checked with the NT8 support Team and was told that NT8 cannot incorporate a chart mod I am looking for. Therefore, I am hoping that somebody on the future.io can help. What I'd like seems simple (never is), but it is way above my capability to code/write scripts or the like. So, here it is:

On my ES/MES or any other instrument chart, I have placed several text blocks. These help me remember things and quickly
identify certain items on the chart. These are helpful to me, at least now that I am still learning the chart (VWAP as discussed brilliantly by Jonnyboy). These text blocks/cells are strategically placed on the chart at various locations, denoting certain information.
The problem is that, as the timeline increasingly moves forward, the text blocks remain stationary and eventually go left off the screen. It is a major pain to select each one individually and move it forward to its proper place on the chart at the current time.
If they would stay fixed and track with the time, that would be great. Alternatively, if I could at least select them as a group and move them forward on the chart and then make minor adjustments by moving them to their proper place, that would make things somewhat easier.

I have attached a pic of the chart in order to show what I mean. By the way, I tried attaching some of them to the actual SD band, but to no avail. I am not at all sure that this is possible, but, if you members cannot come up with a solution, I will know it cannot be done!!

Happy 4th to all.

Thanks a million.

Also do you suggest me to incorporate a LLC to trade?
If I submit my taxes over e-File - what do i need to do to inform IRS that I want to be a active trader.
