All you Need for today

Well....today was a big day.

As you know I don't get very excited about indicators.....but......I'm afraid in this case I'm going to have to make an exception. Because the big fat dots on my chart are the new "Shark Attach"

I found out that they seem to work best on the YM with a 12 range bar chart. Keep in mind these suckers paint IN REAL TIME.

Now I don't think we can necessarily check our brains at the door when we use this indicator but it might help !!

Sharky you're just impressing the hell out of me ! I have never seen any indicator call trades so accutately.....ever. My hat is off to you oh many toothed one.

Can't wait for the finished version. I don't know if it could get any better.

Ready for Primetime


I have no knowledge of Sharkys release time table.

These dots paint so sweetly...I'm going to have my wife trade 'em. (She is not a trader)

Point being.... it's just that easy.

Thanks Peter. I have always been confused about volume bars. Does the bar represent the volume (# of TRADES or # of CONTRACTS ? ?) A TRADE could be for 1 contract or 500 contracts. That's why when I saw this 89 CONTRACT BAR chart it kind of caught my attention. It looked as though it was actually counting the number of contracts traded. Can you clarify? Is volume # of TRADES or # of CONTRACTS? Thanks.

Tick charts equal the number of trades, so a 100 tick bar represents a bar where a 100 trades have taken place. Nothing in these indicates time or volume(no. of contracts)

Volume bars represent the number of contracts(volume) traded. 1000 volume bar means 1000 contracts traded and then a new bar. Here no indication of time, or trades.

So to duplicate those contract bars in Ninja just use a volume bar.

Thanks for clarifying that for me. I usually use Range bars, since IB's "tick" data, if you can call it that, is lacking, so I switched to range bars awhile back & never really invested a lot of time in learning about tick vs. volume. Thank you.

After all, it's what you learn AFTER you know it all, that counts!

New MA?

Not on the YM. It's still the 50 EMA. I did change how it painted. I didn't want too many dots around. Just the big fat ones.

I'm still experimenting with ZN. The 4 range bar chart offers more of a challenge.

Hey Cunparis,

Obviously, a stop that is too tight will not let the market "breath" and a stop that is too far away will not stand up to a proper risk/reward ratio. This balance might have to be adjusted from time to time depending on the level of market volatility.
Jeff


Agreed , you also need to consider the true risk while the trade unfolds . If you have an 8 tick stop , that is your maximum tolerated stop amount . If that trade only goes against you 3 ticks and begins to profit and you exit with a 3 tick profit because of a signal to exit you still incurred a 1/1 RR .
