Ok...I have my first trade for this journal..Short 132025...I don't expect this afternoon to be too productive, however there is a chance somebody could shoot Ghaadafi and that will set the cat amongst pigeons.

As for charts...I will think about that.

As I write we have a reverse ...now long 132075...target always +/- 10 points

It maybe that i may refrain from posting the trades until the EOD...otherwise could be using up a pile of pages and I have to stay focused ...

Tried to download yesterdays/overnight trades...blew it...have to wait till daughter gets home...

In the meantime, we have a new series 1underway...profit goal always +/- 10

S 2650
L 2750
S 2675


Ok...just a quick update and I can point out a little 'quirk' that will be evident in the chart I hope to post later

First we have hit series 2 (6th trade)..before that we had the following trades..

L2750
S2575...nasty one...got nastier as it flipped back the other way in the same bar...and now we are in series 2 ..point out in chart
L2700..that is how i take my entries
S2625...looking good for awhile...appears to be ready to reverse as I write

Will clean up later

I'm not quite following this...

S 2650
L 2750
S 2675

Does this mean you go long at 1327.50, short at 1326.75 and short at 1326.50 ?

Reverse did not happen..missed by a fraction...

Series 2 x10=20 -7 =13 points net profit less comms...series 1 was (5 1/2) and series 2 (1 1/2)...

Would love to have this automated,but Ninja not supported by my broker...so I just might change now..

why automate it with NT7, when you can for the same $$$ automate it with MC, and now with MC having chart trader and DOM on MC7 ... one does not have to do much of anything with NT7 unless one really wants to...

MC supports OEC without issues.. it supports Market/Limit/Stop orders natively, and OCO's programatically within MC...

so you can stay with OEC if they are reliable to you, and just pick MultiCharts... my 2 cents... and as a disclaimer, I own both NT7 and MC... and I find MC to be easier for simple coding and NT7 for very, very complex strategies... but keep in mind that C# is not all that fast, but it appears as your strat does not require speed of execution and analysis..
