However , how exactly the hindsight bar will help you to "find" a pattern? From what I can understand below this only help you to find best Stop loss-target

I cross-check my setups with the results as indicated by the hindsight bars. Ideally as many of my setups should achieve the expected R-Multiple.

What is the R multiple ? How do you define a good or/and the best R-multiple ?

For the R-Multiple see this thread:

Why when the market has closed ? I would think that it is better to have it real time.

I won't change my setups, when trading real-time. Hindsight bars are useful to improve setups, so you need them, when the market is closed.

esam,

You would have to code a strategy to make it trade your rules - either hire a programmer or try using the Startegy Wizard in NT and the help documentation.

The strategy wizard is built in with ninjatrader and isnt difficult to learn but will take a bit of practice . Take a look at some of these -
Reference Samples - NinjaTrader Support Forum .

Then open the wizard via Tools --> New ninjascript ---> Strategy and open the wizard from there . First maybe search here for tutorials that I know Mike has put together in the past about how to build strategies .

Here is the video I did:

It is meant for someone who has programming knowledge but is new to NinjaTrader.

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.

More testing - to trend or not to trend

Trade with the trend? You tell me. Either way, positive expectancy is a good thing.

I see you're optimizing on the target in relation to bar size. What is the stop?

15 trades isn't enough sample size. Can you repeat it for a longer period and then see how it does? Better yet, do the previous 3 months excluding the past 4 weeks and find the optimal value and then test the next 4 weeks with those values without optimizing them. I'd love to see the results.

Thanks for sharing.

Excellent and thanks for the effort . Ive been doing this - If the real body of the candle is above the moving average only look to go long and if the real body of the candle is below the moving average only look to go short .
