Ninja updating and TWS at IB

I had to do an update as TWS wasn't connecting.
Here's a checklist.

Ninja upgrade
1. Download new version of NT and install - check to see its starts. close.
2. Download correct TWS (link on connection sheet)
3. Take off Java
4. Put Java back on - download 32 bit and 64 bit and then install them (see all versions link)
5. Start TWS and then edit api configs
6. Save settings


TWS connection sheet
NinjaTrader stock, futures and forex charting software and online trading platform. Interactive Brokers Connection Guide.
You have to edit, global config, api, settings and uncheck DDE. (make sure TWS trades results window is not open otherwise when you click OK on the settings page it doesn't respond until you find and close the trades window.)

NinjaTrader 7 Features

FOMC ramp

Today's ramp shows what a farce this bubble ponzi scheme is.

Iraq moving to a civil war and another refinery shut down creating the possible of a 1979 stagflation in the Western world (high interest rates and no growth and no jobs.)

USA and other western countries have massive debt levels at govt, state, city levels and record consumer debt and a bubble housing market in many areas

huge unemployment in Spain, Italy, Greece,
huge debt in Spain, Italy, Greece, Portugal, Argentina, Cypress ....

50 million in the USA in poverty and 100 million on the edge and receiving govt subsidies food stamps etc.
that is 150 of 330 Million (doesn't count the record numbers of homeless, prison population etc. and those with jobs who contribute nothing but cost much - politicians etc)

China is stalling and 7.5% growth and falling rapidly, 3.5% ... and a potential explosive shadow banking sector, huge number of zombie loans..

Shale gas fizzle ..
pollution skyrocketing..

There are no jobs and no prospects for jobs .. what a mess..

And then yappy Yellen declaring growth is Ok and we should believe her give an excuse for a ridiculous ramp!

Good trading to everyone.

"new discovery" on short term indicators


I have added this to my tick & es chart

I noticed that the volume oscillator went negative before the peak for the ES today -showing the uptrend was losing support and would turn.
I thought other might be able to use this as well.

Either range or time whichever is first


Here is what I have for today. Once you have your first end (FE) of the day in place you can make a time & price window for the second end (SE). So today the FE was 1975.00 @ 09:19.

The window gave us a very nice target within a few minutes and price either exact or -.50.

So the idea is as you get on the green (close in price or time - whichever comes first) you take out your putter (use indicators or judgement) to sink the put!
