sure its all tradestation stuff but im sure there are ninja versions (i can post code in easy language):
233 tick
the coloring of bars is a derivation of Heiken Ashi bars based on the TTM bars that trade the market sells i got off the web somewhere.
The many tiny dots (green/red) are just volatility based stop losses i got off the web somehwere i just use them for trailing stops
The big green/red dots are trend reversals from the Ana Supertrend indicator (from this forum) and are my entry/exit signals
Pivots - daily highs etc are TS code...stock stuff
I hid a couple of indicators before i posted just to make it cleaner: higher time frame DStochastics - the trigger line only from a 1165 tick bar and both the dstoch and trigger from 2330 tick timeframe. - I paid someone for these to have them show up on the chart but you can do the same by using multiple charts without paying for it.

Entry Rules are as follows:
1. trend reversal signal on a long/short bar color
2. 1165 dstoch line must be flashing same direction (that is sloping up for long down for short)
3. one of the other 2330 dstoch lines (either trigger or Dstoch) must also flash same direction
4. no trades before 2 AM..from 9 AM - 945 AM and after 3PM.


Money Mgmt:
1. Initial stop at 6 ticks
2. three targets: +4 + 8 + 40
3. if first two targets hit trail stop at little dots
3. if no target is hit in 3 bars - scale first two targets down to b/e (scale out) and move stop up. - that is start scaling out to minimize losses.

win rate is about 8-2 each day. dont have good numbers yet on how many times the 8 hits all three targets and i count breakeven to slighly positive as a win. with these numbers that bugs posts - i think i can cut back on the stop outs since they always seem to be when going long/short into one of the levels.

Keep in mind that ratio assumes perfect entries but the problem with higher time frame momentum indicators is that they CAN change based on future data on a smaller timeframe. So 8-2 is probably really 8-3 or 8-4 when factoring in valid entries that are proven invalid several bars later. Many times these turn out ok due to the strength of the other trading rules (1165 tick trigger line does not do this) and i have not developed a trading rule for them yet.

Duncan, is there any way to post a template with your indicators and bar profile. Good looking charts.

Thanks
Hector

just remembered i also modified the supertrend triggers adding some additional factors. Again happy to provide it but dont want to hijack Bugs' thread. and i also have some qualitative things i left out of my mechanical rules like fib retracements, obvious support/resistance, overall trend of es etc....which is why i am desparate to know where bugs gets these numbers from......

Duncan thanks a lot. I am going to try and put this together. Although I use Ninja I am going to see how I can make it look like yours with the information you gave me.

Thanks
Hector

Sure but before you go invest tons of hours: i have developed this over the past several months through lots of trial and error. Seems to work fine and makes money every day i have looked at it but i ahve not built any strategies and backtested etc. it is WIP.... if you plow ahead, pm me for some of the other particulars. also have to watch chop zones when market is dead....have to walk away then. What I think would be helpful is ameasure of market velocity (which you can see real time in a tick chart as it moves fast but cant feel to well in hindsight). Unfortunately dont think TS can give me data on seconds for each tick bar (hard to believe)... my plan works best when ticks are printing rapidly and you are not doing dumb things like long into resistance and short into support etc....hence my love of Bugs' numbers....uncanny support/resistance/market congestion areas.

Thanks Duncan, I'll sure do that. I am just getting familiar with it. When I get closer and before I do any real trading I will PM you just to make sure I am on the right path. I like your idea on velocity it kind of makes sense.

Thanks
Hector

obvious

well its obvious where the trend is going but please avoid taking it further down from here... wait for a possible big retrace cause we have the whole day ahead of us & I dont think it will fall from here all day.. possible big retrace to one of the #'s & it will go down again if possible...

so be carefull
