Welcome to futures io.

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.


You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

-- Big Mike

On one time frame up...

@itrade2win

Typically yes, I'd be looking at a longer time frame first like the 60 minute to determine trade side eligibility. Recently however, I have gotten away from that because the risk is pretty small for me on this particular method. Also the win:loss frequency is usually well in my favor. I realize that this takes/took some time and considerable experience to develop....so my hallucination is just that...my hallucination.

This also describes, for me anyway, the major issue with the discretionary trader versus the algo or more mechanical approach. I have been trying to come up with a way that communicates well my approach to each trade. I'd say depending on what you view as primary risk that using one time frame up as trade side eligibility might be a good practice.

I will as time permits get the complete "view" available for anyone that cares to see it.

In this case the 60 minute would have NOT kept me out of trouble in that earlier posted potential sell. This is exactly why I believe that each individual should develop discretionary skills that work for them. That might not make sense but I will try in the coming days to dialogue that perspective as well.

Even on the extended view I was destined to fail. Part of the game and as much as I hate it I have to keep in ming that trading, like golf, is not a game of perfect.

I couldn't agree with you more. I failed miserably until I developed my own method. Looking forward to seeing more of your thread.

Cheers

First Step - Indicator Updates



wldman View Post
@Fat Tails

that would color a standard bar or candle would be a great help. Right now that is all that I am looking for as far as modifications to the existing code. Maybe down the road one HA indicator would be better than the other based on other functionality of a specific version. Is the screen shot that I've already posted showing which indicator, along with the chart view that you can see in my posts adequate enough for you to discern the best way to help? Please let me know what I can do. Dan

@wldman, @hunter 548:

Have updated a number of indicators, following your request:

(1) Keltner Channels and Bollinger Bands can now both use mode, median and 27 different moving averages. Midband and channels can be switched on and off.

https://futures.io/download/ninjatrader-7/indicators/626-download.html?view
https://futures.io/download/ninjatrader-7/indicators/625-download.html?view

(2) The Heiken-Ashi indicator now has an option to select between the original formula published by Dan Valcu and the modifed formula suggested by Sylvain Vervoort.

https://futures.io/download/ninjatrader-7/indicators/467-download.html?view

(3) Have also added an option to use the ADXVMA to the SuperTrend U11. This is insofar related, as the Supertrend uses the same moving averages as the Bollinger Universal and Keltner Universal indicators.

https://futures.io/download/ninjatrader-7/indicators/1207-download.html?view

(4) Have made a slight modification to the ADXVMA. The ADXVMA therefore needs to be imported along with the indicators.

https://futures.io/download/ninjatrader-7/indicators/1198-download.html?view

Next step: Will now use the enhanced Heikin-Ashi candles to create a trendfilter, which can be applied to OHLC bars and can either use the Dan Valcu or the Sylvain Vervoort formula.

Here are the paint bars, let me know whether this is what you wanted. You can select between Dan Valcu's and Sylvain Vervoort's formula.

Welcome back @wldman, enjoy your 4th!

Mike

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)
Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.

Smoothed Heiken Ashi Candles

Have played around a little to add some smoothing to the Heiken-Ashi Candles, here is the result. The smoothing is deactivated per default, but you can now select between 4 options

- Dan Valcu
- Sylvain Vervoort
- Dan Valcu smoothed
- Sylvain Vervoort smoothed

I have included a median, a mode and another 27 moving averages for smoothing. You can build a whole lot of trendfilters from those. Below are some examples:

Great journal, enjoyed reading it so far. Also helped kill a few hours at work

Since indicators have been brought up which acci are you using? I loaded the one that @MWinfrey had posted a while back but couldnt seem to get it to match up.

Thanks for sharing your journal with us and hope you had a good vacation.

Thank you..

for stopping by. @mongoose

Yes, the displayed version of adaptive cci is the work of MWinfrey. Mike is a thoughtful and very able NT guy and I am grateful for his help and contribution. I think it might be difficult to make the display look like mine because Mikes starting perspective was a little different from mine. Here are my settings to get the display you see on my charts.

Thanks again @MWinfrey

Let me know if this gets you there. DB

Thank you...


again @Fat Tails !

Yes, indeed the paint bar study that you created for me is exactly what I was hoping for. Here is an interesting note though. The other updated Heiken Ashe view that you created is, in my view, so pure and so visually appealing that it will be hard to remove it from my screen real estate. In the process of review and revise, which is constant with me, I find that your contributions continuously improve my view.

From the first day here on futures.io (formerly BMT), you have been a wise and prolific resource for me. I've gained from your perspective and you indicator contributions dominate my screens. Here is the question:

Beyond gratitude what might I do to express my appreciation to you?
