Hi Family Trader

Thank you for your reply. Currently I have NinjaTrader 7 and CMO (it's probable OEC inbuilt indicator) is not avalable, I added EMA 100 to my ES chart. Could you check your indicator and let me know what the period of William's%R is? Please check the attachment for my request. TIA

CMO is Chande and it is on Ninja ...Williams set at 10...thanks for info on PM...fyi, distinct difference between my momentum 5 point price range and standard 5 point price range, but same logic can be applied.

Just to qualify...by "points" I am referring to ticks ...so to be clear it is 5 ticks=1.25 points...hope I haven't confused too many readers..

Hi Family Trader,

Thank you for the information. You stated in one of your posts that you intended to switch to NinjaTrader. Do you find NT has Momentum 5 Range Bar type which you use in OEC? I searched futures.io (formerly BMT) and Googled; but, I could not find anything about Momentum Range Bar type. Could you help?

Two more questions----a. What's the period for Chande Momentum Oscillator ? b. Does the time showing in your ES chart EST (Florida time)?

Best,

fusion

It seems to be unique to OEC...and I really like it....it seems to 'quieter' than the price bar.Maybe somebody can find out how they do it (formula)...beyond me...

No ..as stated earlier I am not going to go with Ninja....will definitely go with MultiCharts , but whether I stay with OEC is another matter...

CMO=14...yes it is EST...btw ..CMO is basically stochastics...I propose to use it for extemes breaking down...have not traded it earnestly though as it still 'work in progress'...

Looks as though I should not have gone to bed last night as there were 2 trades ...the first ,because I was out

S 131775 and now L 131850 looking promising...that's the way it goes, I'm afraid...

Even more reason to get this strategy automated...

Got caught a couple of nasty flips in the process of completing trades to profit goal.

A flip is where I get reversed within the same bar...always makes me nervous ...

To make it a little more legible I will start from the beginning and point out the 'flips'

S 131900
L 131925
S 132075
L 132200...flipped
S 132100.....end of series 1...net 1 .75 loss

L 132175
S 132100
L 132225
S 132075...flipped

Profit goal reached 131100....the highest point of the sell side...

Net result series 1 ( 1.75)...series 2 19.50 - 7 =12 .5 - (1.75)= 10.75 net before comms.
