Watching Paint Dry (Bonds and Ninjascript video journal)

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC3G9qIPQkvMowZGWw1qM7ZQ

I trade US Treasury Bond futures (ZB) every day for the first two hours of the session using a TopStepTrader combine account. As part of the FIO Video Journal challenge I will be uploading the entirety of every trading session for the month of April. You will be able to see every indicator I see, every entry I make, hear everything I hear, and even see my face as I work my way towards achieving profitability.

I named this thread "Watching Paint Dry" because many traders believe that watching the Z's trade is boring. However, it is my hope that this journal will encourage more retail traders to try trading the bonds. In my opinion ZB offers the best opportunity for beginning retail traders to obtain an edge. Watching the constant battle in the order flow is highly engaging, and I think you'll find it more exciting that you thought. The treasury market also features some of the best traders to learn from, and you'll get to see some of that as well. In particular you'll be able to hear my interactions with the other members of GPI Trading group who have given me permission to include them in my recordings.

I will make the videos public at the end of the trading day. I will still be posting my daily levels and hypotheses in my Elite Journal so that Elite members can still have the benefit of seeing my trading plan at the start of the session.

On the weekends I will be posting videos with advice for programming in Ninjascript. I'll be showing some common pitfalls I've found, as well as any requests from viewers. So if there's an indicator or strategy you'd like to see made let me know.

If you would like to chat with me directly, you can join the small discord room I have set up:

Best of:
These are videos that if you're watching these videos later for practice are good for looking at different market conditions. These aren't always days that I did well on, but there are good setups in them.

Trend days:

Possibly the wildest day we'll ever see.

A quick tutorial on using the Visual Studio debugger to debug Ninjascript that I recorded last weekend in preparation for the video challenge.

Nicely done, but one note - the uploaded resolution is too low to see the screen detail. If you still have the source, try re-uploading and re-encoding with a higher bitrate.

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)

Yeah things get a little blurry when you try to resize it. I'll upload it next time in full 1440p. If it's still an issue we can just make the text bigger. I'll post a little workspace walk-through tomorrow to make sure I have it all sorted out.

Awesome. I'm looking forward to your journal and seeing how you tackle the Z's. Good luck with the video challenge.

Let me know if that's easier to see. You should be able to see it in 1440p now.

What a perfect day to start. Very clear signals in the order flow, nice clean move. A perfect example of when my trading signals work. A shame I can only trade the first two hours because there was quite a move after I left too. I had a few issues with my software before I started recording, but I think we have most of that worked out for now. I need to check my noise gate settings though. Sometimes it cuts me off too early.


Skip to 48:00, that's my favorite part.

Also shout out to Peter Davis for making the RapidTrader Pro Beta available to everyone today. I'm loving where it is going. I think using RapidTrader pro for execution, and NinjaTrader 8 for charting will be perfect for me.

Hi TWDsje!

My programming skills are not at the level where I could program what I need from scratch. However, if I could get my hands on the code for a simple strategy, I could modify it to incorporate a "BarClose" function (this would place an order on the close of the current bar).

Ideally, if I could get the code for a strategy similar to ChartTrader, this would be great!

Is this what you had in mind with your offer?

Thanks.
