What will "feed you" is trading success. Development of other miscellaneous tools often cuts into screen time or other more direct trading related development.

On a related note:

cyberxpert: outreach the boundries of excel
IB excel adapter (free) is a useful tool to draw real time info from IB - specifically real time account info - which I find very useful to drive my sizing/risk spreadsheet.

1. Money
2. Much more importantly - you can't get access to the source code. So improving or adapting it is limited.
3. Developing our own version improves learning and will lead to improvements elsewhere (IMHO)

I did actually trial it - and found it to be relatively poor in some areas.

Essentially it's the old saying
'Feed a man a fish, you feed him for a day; teach him to fish and he can feed himself.'

If those items are done already in the commercial application, why not just buy it? Or work with the developer to improve it or add a feature you deem necessary, instead of creating your own version.

Mike

I am not interested in the application. I am interested in developing something which uses the tools he is using with NT.

OK, programming questions about context menus and toolbars and such should not be in this thread. You'll want to create a new one to follow up on that stuff.

Mike

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.

Would be great if we could connect to Ninja using this tool.

Ok to start

May as well start at the most difficult bit...
How do you access real time exch rates?
My guess is you use a web site like google.
If you type in eg eur to gbp it comes up with a spot rate.
I can get the symbol currency but does anyone have any snippet about how to access and read a web page?

Hm, perhaps you can use the API of your broker? (see for example the Interactive Brokers C# API : Interactive Brokers C# Api | Dinosaur Technology and Trading )

I'm sorry I can't contribute more, honestly I have no idea how to tackle such a complex position sizing program.

Regards,

Yes it is a complex project. I don't think one needs to use an API as we have C# and it's been done before of a fashion - see jt's NewsAddin.
Unfortunately this is in a dll and I can't /don't know how to read those.

My version of Position Sizer - excel


here is my excel calculator for position sizing. At this moment i use ATR method but i have some doubts if it is best.
For calculation i use margins from AMP Futures.

There are some mistakes in symbols GE,ZF and ZT i will fix it soon.

This is created for position trading, not for daytrading !!!
