What are your settings for the MACDBB Lines indicator? Do you only have the MACDBB in that panel?

I used the default setting, ie

Fast 12
Period 10
Slow 26
Smooth 5
StDev 1

MACD BB is the only indicator on Panel 2. Here it comes to save your searching the NJ forum.

Hi Everyone

Believe you have had a nice weekend. Mine was a fruitful one. I created some strategies that will trigger an audio alert when the predetermined indicators align at the same time. Remember my eyes are a little slow so the audio alert will help LOL! Then I spent some hours doing market replay .. My hands and "head" need practice .

You can tell from the enclosed that I tried to combine The Wizard's set-up with KwikPop (KP). From the strategy development thread (which was a very good experience), I can tell The Wizard's set-up works better for YM and not ES. Considering my former experience with KP, its set-up is for ES though it cannot safeguard whipsaws. Now with the ADXVMA and d9 indicators, I should be able to minimize some choppy ES trades. Plus again the audio alert will help my "slow" eyes .. haha ..

I will do more market replay later today and start sim-trading them tomorrow. Wish me LUCK! Thank You.

Happy & Successful Trading!

Beth

Hi Beth,

Excuse the illiterate question but how did you get audio alerts for multiple indicator confluence? Did you write a strategy or a super-signal or what? Can you post your template?

Thank you!

Yes, I created some strategies with the audio alerts. The following (for YM) captures The Wizard's Long set-up (blue price bar + DonMA, EMA and ADXVMA all blue) plus I add the d9 RawTrend indicator to increase the winning %:

 
Code
if (High[0]>High[1] && DonMA(7).MARising[0]>0
&& EMA_Colors_Paint_v01(30, 60, 7).EMAup[0]>0
&& ADXVMA_WizMod(2, true).Rising[0]>0
&& (CrossAbove(d9ParticleOscillatorWVertLineR(7, 0).RawTrend, 1,3))) 
{
PlaySound(@"C:\Program Files\NinjaTrader 6.5\sounds\d9long.wav");
}
Instead of entering into a trade, I ask the strategy to play the d9long.wav file.

Note: I've found a very cool website that you can create audio files (.wav) with any wordings you want plus you can choose the gender/accent etc. Simply move the files to the sound folder.

I've captured my learning in the enclosed Trade Log.

Goals Accomplished:

1. Preserve Precious Capital most of the morning. I felt a little under-achieved for Trade Nos 7 and 12. For Trade No 12 (after preparing the log), I just realized I missed the white ADXVMA warning dots!! Else quite satisfied with the result even a little pinky!

2. Modified the audio strategy a few more times this morning. For example,

i. d9 RawTrend crossover 0.05/-0.05 (from 0.15) for Long and Short entry
ii. d9 RawTrend crossover 0 as an exit warning (this will help when a trade does not work)

I believe I will stay with the most updated one for this week.

Next Move:

1. Need to find a way to minimize the audio noises. I have 4 strategies running (generate lots of order filled, order pending and order cancelled etc), 1 audio strategy on YM and 1 audio strategy on ES. Sometimes they clashed and I missed a few ES alert entries this morning. I may not activate the YM audio one tomorrow though it won't help substantially. Will figure out.

2. Maximum No of trades: 3 trades and/or maximum 6 contracts. That's what I followed when I market replayed last weekend. I will resume following this practice and this will safeguard over-trade!

3. Learn to act SMART when there's a warning and I am in a trade. Ample room to improve here .. haha ..

++

Will be quite occupied with non-trading tasks now, eg trying a new recipe on baking some mango, pineapple, orange and papaya muffins and laundry time .. smile ..

Happy & Successful Trading!

Beth

I have not included the KP templates (for 7500 and 3350 volume charts) as you will need the KP indicators. I am unable to create an audio strategy on the KP signals as the indicators are not in the NJ indicators folder + they do not have any plots .. sigh ..

Instead, I created an audio strategy on the 2UP/2DOWN requirement (price closes above or below the upper and lower Bollinger band), d9 RawTrend crossabove/crossbelow 1 and no ADXVMA chop warning. When I hear an audio alert, I will also pay attention to the indicators on the bottom, ie all or most blue or red before entry.

No audio strategy for the 7500 volume chart as it's for trending only. Hope the above helps. Thank you.

Beth, that's a really cool site. I had so much fun typing in funny things for the voice to recite back

Cheers,

I have decided to follow the Best Trading Hours (morning session), ie

9:43 am | 10:14 am | 10:32 am | 11:00 am

Certainly fingers were a little itchy when the market was moving up at open. Then SOH bearing in mind that the Chicago Sentiment and Factory Order announcements at 9:45 am and 10:00 am would move the market. You will notice from the enclosed that a Short + a Long happened around these 2 annoucements. Well, felt sorry for missing both trades though it's better to avoid trading around news!

There's a good short signal at 10:41 and I missed it. I really missed this because I was occupied with another project (creating an on-line store for my organic products)!! Being too "diversified" may not be a good thing ooo

Soooooo, no trades this morning.

What I learned:

1. Focus Focus Focus during the specified trading hours. For me, will be between 9:30 am and 11:00 am (even I will mostly consider the first trade after 9:40 am).

2. The additional warning audio alert (with the d9 RawTrend crossabove/crossbelow 0) is great IF I am in a trade.

3. The entry audio alert does help. Great signals esp when the lime and aqua lines on the 7500 volume chart crossover. Too bad I can't program the crossover. Will count on my eyes on the same when I hear an entry alert.

Enjoy your day. Will be back tomorrow .. smile ..

Beth
