That is the question. Bears took control at the end - never see the DOM so heavy. Still selling off as I write.

ZTrade,

I attempted your GOMIVolumeLadder settings as shown on panel 1, but it looks a bit blurred. Yours looks a bit blurred too but better than mine. I've played around with the "font" settings but doesn't seem to work. How can we make the Ladder cleaner and clearer ? Or, can you share your template ?

Hadn't really looked at the BA part before tonight. I found that Kilo 1 digit looks best for the number format on my screen. I've attached a template and 5 and 30 minute charts.

I will try it in NT & tomorrow, Thanks.

ZTrade,

This template (attached in post 32) is your new settings as shown in the attached charts. However, I want the template for the chart on your post 30. Please, can you post that ?

ZTrade101.
Appreciate your posts here.
I've been using some of the Gomi indicators but I haven't seen how to get the GomVolumeLadder set up on a NT chart.
Any assistance appreciated.
Kind Regards

I've turned off the BA. Additionally I add ADXVMX_sharky_paint, DOM_Bands, BSVLine_2 and GomCDHA. All from the futures.io (formerly BMT)Forum website (some Gom requires VIP - info for later readers of this post). You will also need GomRecorder. It is not shown as I run it on another chart as only one instance in a workspace is needed (Thanks to Zondor for pointing that out).

Decided to fade the TrendLine which did not hiold and took a small loss on 2 contracts. Right after I shorted got a signal a reversal was possible, higher low bar, but it reversed at 1142.75 and felt I had to give it one more chance, was mistaken and decided not to chase.

Decided to work on getting indicators in 6.5 to work in 7, it is not that easy for RealStats and I want to look at Gomi's stuff to see if it has been tested in 7. I could not get it to display.

Choppy times like this are harder to trade then ones like yesterday. It is ok to take a break, although the exception is a choppy morning sometime moves during the eastcoast lunch time, today was not one of those days. Also after day or move of Volitility eventually the movment tends to reach some new found equilibrium between bulls and bears, barb wirs (Al Brooks). At this point waiting is the smart play.

Today I go live with NT 7. Want to thank Zondor for an amazing job of debugging 6.5 Indicators and migrating them to 7. There is still more work to do, but the progress in the last 36 hours was spectacular. He debugged RealStats & incorporated the Gom Recorder into BSVLine. DOM_Bands will follow at some point. Pretty sure these, if posted, will go into the elite circle.

I show an expanded chart showing the indicators and RealStats Histogram. (There is some corrupted unscaled data to the left not shown from the recording, gotta fix this for Monday.)

ZTrade,

LIVE on NT7 ? Must be NT7Beta.

Why would you want to go LIVE on NT7Beta ? NinjaTrader advises against trading LIVE on NT7Beta, you know.

Thank You. I should have been clear I going to run in Sim Mode. I meant Live as in running it during Market Hours vs. Only with Replay.
