Anybody familiar with this new website which claims to be a partnership between Harry (our very own FatTails) and another fellow to train people how to trade? The indicators look very much the same as what FatTails has given us here at BigMike's.

It seems to be initially focused on pivots, vwap and how to set up session templates, although the site is new and thus there may be more to come.

@FatTails made a reference to it in this post: https://futures.io/elite-circle/35208-converting-ninjatrader-7-indicators-ninjatrader-8-free.html#post492627

It's an elite link, but he did indicate he and a business partner launched it.

Herzlichen Glückwunsch (Best wishes) to FatTails and LizardTrader.com!

FatTails is really one of the few futures.io (formerly BMT) members who have contributed very kindly and generously to the forum WITHOUT judging/suppressing others and I deeply appreciate it.

p/s: Hope I got the (googled) translation correct.

When I grow up, I want to be like FatTails...

I cannot thank Harry enough for his selfless contributions to the forum. I would venture to take it a step further and say that when I was just starting out, I wish I had been directed to read FT's insightful posts before committing real capital to any trading endeavor.

His commercial venture is no different. Robust software, with an out-of-the-box ready methodology that will likely shorten the learning curve for anyone new to the trading world, with a light tread on your CPU resources. Although it won't make you a millionaire overnight, it will more often than not help confirm you being in the correct side of the market. I have no doubt that as they add more products to their offerings, I will continue improving my trading performance.

Thanks Kris and Harry!

@Fat Tails started to upload some of his "ana" indicators (now called "ama" for nt 8). they're located in the download section under ninja trader 8:


he also has a new website with all his nt 8 indicators, including some premium indicators:

home - LizardIndicators


Indicator Library for NinjaTrader 8

- Unlimited downloads of all library indicators (70+)
- The best of the best "Fat Tails" indicators, all in one place
- Newly released indicators not found anywhere else
- Special membership discount on all premium indicators
- One time payment of only $125.00 - no recurring fees

of course here at futures.io most of those indicators will be free. but by recognizing and appreciating all the work involved (we're talking about more than 100,000 lines of code!!), I think it's a small "thank you" to join lizardindicators.com for a measly $125.00. at least for me it would be the right thing to do.

if you're using "lizard indicators" there might be some issues with latest release the problem has been addressed by @Fat Tails


Huge issues with NinjaTrader

(1) Synchronization problems: OnRenderTargetChanged() called prior to State.Configure()

(2) Access problems due to different threads: DX brushes can no longer be accessed via OnRenderTargetChanged() and OnRender().

(3) Crashes and freezes.

We need to inform all our customers NOT to install NT, as it breaks the code that we have produced for NinjaTrader 8.

Worst release ever since NT 8 BETA.

A sample indicator (open source) that shows the problems is attached. All indicators perfectly worked with NT, but stopped working with NT The problem affects 50 + of our indicators which would all have to be adapted.

I just signed up for the membership with Lizard Indicators.As a member, we have access to NT7 indies, and can also try a free trial on the NT8 indies.The only thing is, it offers NT7 indicators on the download.I know i must be mistaken here, maybe looking in the wrong spot? Being forced into NT8, NT7 indicators as far as I know arent going to work....Edit There are 2 websites, i was looking for the NT8 premium downloads on Lizard Trader...Sorry for the incorrect info Fat Tails

You are correct in that you are wrong. Someplace around the entry is a choice for NT7 or NT 8. I downloaded the NT 7 indicators, switched over to 8 then went back and downloaded the updated versions.

To make sure there is no confusion Lizard Trader is for the premium indicators ($'s each) and they install with an LT prefix, where the Lizard Indicators are the all you can eat for the flat membership fee and do install as ANA indicators. It can be a touch confusing because Kris and Harry have put in links to make it easy to find the premium indicator from the regular web site.
