if you can, these might be helpful to the crew - good luck

Hey Gio,

I thought you retired??????

Panel 3 and 4 look like the ema slope bar indicator. I'm not sure what the panel 2 oscillator is......I've tried macd, cci, squeeze etc.......none of them quite lines up.....so....I'm stumped on panel 2.

is it possible to design a simple ADR indicator - i have looked everywhere for one and could not find it for ninja trader - the strategy is as followes -
Input info to calculate the ADR on an instrument on a time period n - plot the info and compare the adr to todays n period out of 100 percent - the range left from today is plotted against the previous - ( if the adr is 15 ticks or .80 cents - its totals 100 percent - if todays move is 12 ticks or .65 cents - the balance of move left is 19 percent - signal based on your own parameters for takeing the trade, you can input that you only want a sound or an arrow or a word to say trade or no trade - green or red arrow if you input to give you a signal based on 30 percent or 10 percent or 50 percent room )

I see that there are discussions about this on Forex Factory......perhaps you can find and indicator on one of these forums and see if someone will convert it to Ninja.

ADR indicator @ Forex Factory

it will help if we can design something like they have here >>> check it out please

also to clarify what i am thinking of

the idea is like this

i want to be able to calculate the average daily range of an instrument over a certain period that can be changed

for example - i can choose 2 days - 5 days - 2 weeks - 2 months - whatever?

that average will be considered as 100 percent before the open today

today that 100 percent will be changed depanding on what the instrument does

if the average for the emini over the past 2 weeks is 50 ticks ( 100 percent) and today at the open its down or up 10 ticks from when u want to get in then you have 40 ticks to play with ( 80% of the adr) - decision to enter trade, lots of room


if the average for the emini over the past 2 weeks is 50 ticks ( 100 percent) and today sometime when u want to take a trade its down or up 45 ticks then you have 5 ticks to play with ( 10% of the adr) - decision to maybe not enter trade , no room

Want your indicator created free?

Please your case, show screen shots and examples of what you want. If others find value in it someone will create it.

looks great - how would we determine if it moved below open almost the whole adr and we can look for a reversal to go long or if its sitting above open and we can look for a short - can we add like a negative and a positive sign for above open and below open

Hey Jeff! Thanks so much for the useful template. Question: How do you determine chop with this system? And, do you always wait until you're in a run to enter after the first retrace? Thanks ahead of time.

Hey Jeff, do you still use this old template? It seems to work well for me with the es. Just wondering if it started failing at all for you. Thanks my friend!

Hi Pete,

Sure, I'll work on the screen shots. In the meantime.

ColorSampleUniversalMovingAverage(Close,HMA,14) This was downloaded from the Ninja forum
ECOBars_SharkyPkg(3,2,5,14) Downloaded from Big Mikes Forum. My color configuration is slightly different from Sharkys in that the fading colors are different
Swing (3) Stock Ninja indicator
EMA_Colors(Close,30,60,50) I believe that this indicator was packaged with other SMA,EMA,WMA indicators. They all came as a package. The great thing about this is that it has the "flat" dots that denote a non trending market.

That's about it.

Jeff

Hi Southsea,

Interestingly......my quote that you posted is from 11 months ago. At that time I was using the EMA 50.......lately I have been using the SMA 50....not much difference. The HMA 14 and the paint bar study have fallen by the wayside as I have become better at reading the price bars and seeing price patterns.

During the last 11 months I have tested every indicator under the sun...... or so it seems.......and still find little use for them. Lately I have become more interested in learning more about Japanese candlesticks. I find that I get better entries with candlestick patterns than with indicators.

I also look at volume to help identify some set ups.

Always learning........

there is not a paid indicator out there that me and a couple of the guys here cant reproduce with a week or 2 to discuss it and work together on it...sharky

Sharky,

Have you looked at the CCYX that c12345 is trying to cobble together? L@@Ks very interesting to choose what pair to trade for the day/hour .. likely code would eventually be applicable to stock pairs etc ..

at present this thread has 243 pages and takes hours to read, so the condensed version takes under an hour

it was started in 2009, and still going strong today

I would guess that the brilliant starter of this thread had a significant advantage in trading over the others who didn't have similar tools, or even close, and benefited handsomely as a result

thanks for sharing freely

thanks futures.io (formerly BMT) for being here

kudos all around

and here's to @ZTR for all his impressive work and contribution to these threads....

This is a bit but every now and then I stumble across old videos I made for myself or a trading buddy, old emails with screen shots, etc, and watch or read these in amazement.

There is a lot to learn by reflecting on your past accomplishments. I look at past methods and look at how I used to trade, not just the method but the indicators and money management, and sometimes I am just in awe. Mostly embarrassed.

But what I've found is that the simple methods from my past, that I couldn't make work at the time, would work fine today. That is because the method is not really important, it's the execution of the method that matters (discretion needed). With experience comes greater discretion

I also get to laugh at some of my old ideas, and how they make no sense. I was fooled by indicators, looking for magical red to blue, blue to red indicators, and I got carried away and caught up in them. Watching videos where I was showing a trading buddy how fantastic my system was... they are quite funny now.

But, one thing for sure, it reminds me how much I have learned, how far I have come. It is a never ending journey, but I am grateful to have made it this far and learned so much and improved so much over the years.

It's good to reflect on this thread and see how traders have evolved even over the course of this thread from start to end. The same is true of my personal advice thread, I am not the same trader today that I was when I started that thread. Always learning, always evolving, hopefully not repeating the same mistakes twice

Hi Jeff

I have read all and each posting in this thread and found this to be a most interesting and informative story to find a simple, high probability trading method. It is indeed interesting that you have returned almost full circle - perhaps this reflects the journey as a trader or perhaps it is a realisation that trading is not really about the entry but more about the exit and making profit. We as traders seem to spend a lot of time trying to define our entry in an endeavour to get in earlier and earl;ier but we ( include books, gurus etc) spend somehat less time looking at money management, risk and position sizing.

I have really enjoyed your journey and it has helped me to fine tune my approach (although I did not find the sharkfin paintbars too sucessful on NT7). My overall approach has been based on a MA crossover with stochastic agreement and entry close to the crossover. I have been using a 4R nogap or a 3 min chart for the 6E, 6B and CL. I trade with a 12 tick loss and a 6 pip profit or if countertrend trading I trade with a 4 tick target (one never knows where a CTT will go !). I do not worry so much about ticks or dollars preferring to focus on making all trades successful trades.

I guess the bottome line is that any approach from tossing a coing to elaborate trade strategies will all get you intot he market the test of areal trader is how well we manage the trade once we are in the market and the only real answer here is to minimise losses and maximise gains.

Anyway ,I just wrote to say many thanks for your thoughts, ideas and guidance and for the enjoyable journey.
Regards and good trading

Hi Jeff

I have read all and each posting in this thread and found this to be a most interesting and informative story to find a simple, high probability trading method. It is indeed interesting that you have returned almost full circle - perhaps this reflects the journey as a trader or perhaps it is a realisation that trading is not really about the entry but more about the exit and making profit. We as traders seem to spend a lot of time trying to define our entry in an endeavour to get in earlier and earl;ier but we ( include books, gurus etc) spend somehat less time looking at money management, risk and position sizing.

I have really enjoyed your journey and it has helped me to fine tune my approach (although I did not find the sharkfin paintbars too sucessful on NT7). My overall approach has been based on a MA crossover with stochastic agreement and entry close to the crossover. I have been using a 4R nogap or a 3 min chart for the 6E, 6B and CL. I trade with a 12 tick loss and a 6 pip profit or if countertrend trading I trade with a 4 tick target (one never knows where a CTT will go !). I do not worry so much about ticks or dollars preferring to focus on making all trades successful trades.

I guess the bottome line is that any approach from tossing a coing to elaborate trade strategies will all get you intot he market the test of areal trader is how well we manage the trade once we are in the market and the only real answer here is to minimise losses and maximise gains.

Anyway ,I just wrote to say many thanks for your thoughts, ideas and guidance and for the enjoyable journey.
Regards and good trading

Take a look at this thread . Very enlightening stuff on the idea that what we do after entering a trade is more important than the entry itself. It may change the way you think about those 2. They aren't mutually exclusive. At least that's the way I read that thread.

Hey guys don't know if its way to late to respond to this discussion but here's my 2 cents. There is something
called TRENDS it happens everyday. Not believing in trends is like saying there is no trend in fashion. Everyone
here working on indicators are like designers trying to find the next trend. When a designer creates something hot
and it becomes a TREND, he makes tons of money. Soon other designers follow that TREND and bank off it.
I think thats what we are trying to do here with these indicators dont you agree? Tro?
I use some of the indicators made here and it has helped in my trading a great deal. I commend you guys keep up the amazing work.
Tro has some good indicators as well, i use one of them on my 1min chart.

Best Regards

Hey Cory,


The very first pattern is also my favorite. I have a friend that runs a multi-million dollar fund and he Told me this is what he uses. So I am fond of it.

Good Post

Skid

Just wondering if SKID is still using this pattern #1 of Kevin's.
Seems sooo nice and simple; also if SKID or CORY could advise when best you cancel your order (or do you..?) if there is no quick breakout after the 15 mins....??

Hey Abde,

Sorry for the late reply........some how I missed the post......

In the first pic that you posted.........that is one of the first versions of the CCI that TMFT made for me.......that CCI study resulted in a new thread entitled Jeffs CCI which was recognized in last years futures.io (formerly BMT) best of voting. I still use the CCI today (among other things)......it looks a bit different.....but the same principles apply.....I'll post a pic. the indicator that I use is the CCI4Jeff_Betav8_SMA.......I'll post it for you in the JeffsCCI thread.

The second pic has three things.....two moving averages and a paint bar study......I would guess that the moving averages are 20/50 EMA with the Sharkfin paint bar.

Good trading, Jeff

Hey @Volts101

When you want to ask a poster a question about their post, enter their name with '@' in front of it and this will send them a PM to draw their attention to your post. Not sure if @Skid has been around recently so he may miss your post. @cory is a regular poster.

Hi Jeff

Quite liked the template you kindly provided but unfortunately it would not load on the new version of NT7. Do you happen to have an updated version that you could share. I like the simplicity of the template

Hoping you can help

Good trading, Jeff

this was nice, pretty chart, even to the point of each bar being a full 10tick handle, which is inherently dangerous to trade from, so I presume that this is the over watch chart that allows for the larger picture of what's happened relative to what happend, say an hour ago or since the opening, or since the prior day


it would be nice to have a template, and an indicator shopping list, of what's used, so that one could attempt this on our own, if you're so inclined to share such

just a simple request

cheers

Greetings Kronie, @kronie

I am interested to find out why you believe that trading from a 10 better renko chart is "inherently dangerous.? Please expound on that.

As far as indicators and templates of the aforementioned chart.....JeffCCI thread is full 'em. Have you looked there?

As most traders who have been around awhile will attest the best trades are usually put on in the morning. That is usually when the big move in the market will occure if there is to be one. Through out those nasty narrow range trading days!

There are occasions when you will get two big moves in oposite directions as we had this last Friday. The market moved down to a low and was looking very negative and than rallied up to close slightly lower. A big move after lunch. This is not the norm.

While I primarrily day trade now if I'm trying to put a swing trade on a like to do it early in the day if the PA sets up for me.

Good Trading to all

Hey Chuck,

Thanks for the kind remarks.

The indicator in question was the Z Shark Attach which was a project I was working on with Sharky and Kirk Zeller. I don't think it was ever updated to Ninja 7. It was based on the Williams %R as I recall.

It looks like the "Jeffs Dots" indicator with the dots turned off.......the dots were created by the Z Shark Attack.

I must say.....I miss all my futures.io (formerly BMT) friends and hope to rejoin the community in the future.

Best of luck to you all, Jeff

@Jeff Castille,

best wishes for you and especially your wife.

you're missed by many members here and looking forward to see you back.

I am "only" 800 posts into this mammoth thread. Out of curiosity, whatever happened to Sharky? I checked his profile and he hasn't posted/been active in a couple of years. And Jeff hasn't signed into futures.io (formerly BMT) since Sept. 2013.

Fair enough guys.. I have been messing around with this some this morning with a 9 Range chart for the 6E in dashboard mode and a 2 Range in the back ground and it does seem to help me get a better fill on market replay.. So maybe I will just stick that that for now..

Thanks
