  1. Does anyone know of any indicators, indices, or market internals that function well during the overnight session for the US index futures, bond futures, oil, gold, type of 24 hr trading during non US hours?
  2. So I've been messing with the indicators and learning about them. Made me curious what does the majority use here and why? Currently I'm using Bollinger Bands, Awesome Oscillator, Moving Average, Belkhayate Timing and Parabolic SAR. From all these Belkhayate is my favourite so far, it almost only made me win trades. While Parabolic is almost like MA, I still can read it more clearly on how the market moves.
  3. So I have got a dream;) In my dream I had lightning fast Market Replay on NinjaTrader 8 Asking all experts here on this lovely forum to tell me the solution for my problem Thanks!
  4. Does anyone have or can make a risk to reward indicator for OpenEcry platform. I like the one that is used on tradingview.com but I dont want to pay a monthly fee just to use an indicator. Thanks any help would be apprreciated
  5. Trading with Institutional Money Moves

    Identifying and trading along with institutional money moves works for all asset classes: Stocks, Commodities, Currencies, and Treasuries. In this article, we focus on stocks. Who are institutional investors and what is their core focus? Table 1: Key Institutional Investors Table-1 shows: “Prop Traders” also act as “Liquidity Providers”: On one hand, some institutions trade their own money and on the other hand, they are providing liquidity. Hence, if a core “Prop Trading Company” wants to accumulate or dispose stocks, they have to bypass their key competitors. Even so, they try to hide their actions, the other market forces spot what is going on and trade along with it – and you can do the same. Graphic 1: GOOG – Spot Institutional Money Moves Table 2: Spot Institutional Money Moves The highlighted trade situations on the chart identify that: Price consolidation is going hand in hand with decreasing volumes. Price expansions to the up- or downside is going hand in hand with increasing or collapsing volume. Putting it all together provides you a chart-based strategy to trade right at the highlighted instances: With the direction of the price range breakout. With the Gap. With a Strong Directional Candle. Graphic-2: AAPL Trading Institutional Price Moves Over the years, we developed multiple indicators and studies, which highlight institutional price moves by spelling out potential trade entries and exits. For an example, please check: http://www.neverlosstrading.com/Top_Line.html After we clarified when to initiate a trade, the next question is which stocks to trade? To follow institutional price moves, pick stocks which are widely held by multiple institutions. When you select the S&P 100 and the NASDAQ 100, you already found the core of the trading opportunities. Each of those stocks is held in most mutual funds and by multiple institutional investors. The next challenge is to find trading opportunities. We developed special scanning programs; however, you can find tradable stocks by picking those with a stronger price move than the referring index: For the S&P 100 choose OEX. For the NASDAQ 100 choose QQQ. Stocks to trade are those with an above or below the comparison index price-moves. With the NeverLossTrading mentorships, students will receive daily reports on trading opportunities. If you want to be part of some specific reports, please sign up with our free report link…click here. To be a successful private investor, the skills and experience for being able to make money when the markets go up and down is essential. When a major price move occurs, expect to trade one direction for no more than 10 trading days and after that expect a reversal. If you want to catch a longer trend trade, trail your stop: To the upside: Below the low of the prior candle. To the downside: Above the high of the prior candle. Why is an institutional follower strategy successful? Private investors have the advantage of speed: They can enter and exit entire positions, while Institutions need a longer time to get in and out of a position by sheer size and SEC (Security Exchange Commission) regulations. By the smaller size, you have an easier way to leverage and hedge trading positions. With a short- rather than long-term strategy, money can be made on up- or down-moves. Short-term trading allows for constantly generating and compounding interest, which gives you accelerating returns. With modern technology on hand and competitive commissions, the private investor can access all markets real time, similar to institutions.
  6. ATR Indicator

    The DIG Average True Range indicator is an improvement of the standard ATR – average true range indicator, which is a popular volatility indicator used by many traders. The standard ATR is an amazing indicator, but it has one major inherited flaw. When we use a volatility indicator such as the ATR, we want to know the real price action by how much the next bar goes up or down. However, when gaps have significant influence, as in the standard ATR, we no longer get what we want. After a large gap, the standard ATR indicator no longer reflects the real price action volatility. Take a look at the chart below, which compares the standard ATR indicator (light blue) with the DIG ATR indicator (yellow). AAPL 60 Min Chart: The chart compares our improved DIG ATR (yellow) with the standard ATR (light blue) indicator. Notice that even when a medium-sized gap occurs the standard ATR indicator jumps up and no longer reflects the actual price range, while the DIG ATR reacts to the gap in a much milder manner and continues to accurately reflect the price range. Also notice that when the market has no gaps the indicators are almost identical. Most traders use the standard ATR to place StopLoss and TakeProfit orders. If you are one of these traders, you really need to try the DIG ATR indicator (which is free). The indicator will help you get more from your trades by providing you with more accurate data. Key Features : Adjustable length. New extra feature – select the type of calculation [ full candle / only body ]. The indicator is also provided as a function.

  7. DIG Hull Moving Average

    The DIG Hull Moving Average ― the HMA ― makes your moving average responsive to current prices while remaining smooth and not choppy. The beauty of the HMA is that it manages to eliminate lag almost completely while staying perfectly smooth. This is what you are looking for in a moving average; it means that you can get your signals faster and make fewer mistakes. How Does the HMA Compare to Other Moving Averages? Let’s start by comparing the HMA to a simple moving average (SMA) of the same length. Just a quick reminder: The SMA calculation takes the past “n” closing prices and calculates their average; usually it is traded by taking a short and long SMA and when the two cross a signal occurs. The SMA is associated with two problematic issues: Longer length -> Lag becomes significantly bigger. Sort length -> The MA becomes very choppy S&P500 Futures Daily Chart: On the chart you can see the standard SMA (length 34) in cyan/light blue, and our _DIG__Hull_Moving_Average (length 34) in yellow. The left side of the chart shows that while the SMA is still going up against the market the HMA is catching both pivots and switching direction while remaining smooth. You can also see how big the delay/lag actually is by looking at the two vertical lines on the right; the SMA changes its direction about 15 bars later than our HMA – this means that you would have gotten into the trade earlier and enjoyed that nice bearish move. Now let’s add the standard exponential moving average (EMA). The main idea behind the EMA is to provide more significance to the newer data there for eliminating lag; you will notice that the HMA is actually even better than the EMA as it will react faster but remain smooth. S&P500 Futures Daily Chart: SMA (length 34) in cyan/light blue. EMA (length 34) in purple. _DIG__Hull_Moving_Average (length 34) in yellow. You can see that the EMA is between the HMA and the SMA. It is more responsive than the SMA, but a mile behind the HMA. You can also see that the EMA line is not as smooth as the HMA line. To sum up, the EMA is an improvement of the SMA, and our DIG Hull Moving Average takes this even further by providing a smoother and more precise moving average than you have ever seen before. MA Trend Feature: We have added another feature that makes this indicator even better. By using one simple switch, you can tell our DIG HMA indicator to color itself according to its direction. Let’s see it in action: AAPL 30 Min Chart: The DIG HMA is color coded according to its direction, making it much easier to get signals quickly. We have placed two DIG HMA indicators, one with the length of 34 and one with the length of 80; you can see three great cross signals. Key Features: Low lag -> Get in before other traders. Supper smooth moving average -> Eliminate false entries. New Feature – Color coded according to trend. Easy to use and supports any chart and any time frame.

  8. Market indicators usually contain much more information than just price and volume. As indicators, they are usually more exhaustive and provide information about market breath. Examples are the McClellan Oscillator, Arms Index and Advance/Decline Index.
  9. Market breadth is a component of many market indicators and they enable analysts to easily detect trend continuations, exhaustions and reversals in the market by examining price actions of individual securities.
  10. The indicator was developed by Stephen Klinger and helps traders to determine the long term trend using the money flow and volume data for an asset. By measuring accumulation/distribution, volume and the range of prices between the high and low for any given day, it can also predict short term fluctuations in addition to the long term trends.

  12. Trading Indicator Definition

    Trading Indicators are used in technical analysis to help confirm chart patterns or specific support and resistance levels. Common examples include the RSI or MACD indicators, which allow traders to see when a currency is overbought or oversold.
  13. After reading this I believe that you will have what is referred to as a Ha-Ha or Light- Bulb moment. The basis of this concept isn't a new revolutionary type of technical analysis, but it is a powerful common sense approach to understand the interaction between buyers and sellers. Find someone else teaching the same - and you'll have found a formal Pristine student. Frankly, there isn't anything new or revolutionary when it comes to technical analysis. However, there are different ways of interpreting the same raw data that we all use. Most do this with a hodge-podge of indicators. Some even make a business out of selling you their proprietary indicators or indicator based system that will tell you what to do and when to do it. Knowing what to do and when to do it sounds great and why so many buy into these marketing indicator schemes. Maybe you remember or bought the once popular red light - green light trading system that many paid thousands for in the mid-2000 period. If you're interesting in a long-term approach to technical investing or trading, the history of the red light - green light indicator approach (gone) and others like it isn't it. The use of indicators or indicator systems attracts virtually everyone that becomes interested in trading the markets. I was no different when I started and tried many indicators and wrote a few of my own. The idea of removing the guess work and the uncertainty is attractive. It is also a powerful way of motivating those interested to buy into their marketing. Been there? Here's the concept I want to share with you....... There are buyers at prior price support (a demand area) and sellers at prior price resistance (a supply area). If you're thinking; I knew that already, that's it? You don't realize what a power concept this is. Let me explain. Virtually all price indicators/oscillators (there are hundreds) attempt to define when prices have moved too far and will reverse, right? Sure, but it doesn't work except in hindsight. These indicators have absolutely nothing to do with prices reversing. If you doubt it, think about why does what becomes overbought or oversold either stays that way or becomes more so without returning to the other extreme so often? It's not that you're using the wrong indicator or settings either. That's thing will keep you in search of the Holy Grail and the next indicator. Next there are technical tools like Fibonacci Retracements, Gann Lines, Moving Averages, Elliot Waves, Andrews Pitchforks, Bollinger Bands, Regression lines, Median Lines, Trendlines and they go on and on. All of them are supposed to locate the area where prices will find support or resistance. All of this hocus-pocus analysis is insane! So, what's the answer? An in-depth understanding of price support and resistance pivot points or consolidations as reference points are where you need to focus. This is where buyers and sellers interacted in the past and will likely do so again. Once you have a reference point, wait for a price pattern signaling slowing momentum and reversal. At Pristine, we define a Support Pivot as a bar or candle having at least two higher low bars to its right and left. A Resistance Pivot is a bar or candle having at least two lower high bars to its right and left; simple. The trend of prices, the arrangement of the candles, changing ranges and volume are some of the other concepts to consider that increase the odds of follow through, but that's for another lesson. As far as where prices are likely to stall, it's the basics you need to follow. There are buyers at prior price support (demand) and sellers at prior price resistance (supply). Let's look at a couple of chart examples. As Google (GOOG) moved lower on the left side of the chart, it formed a Resistance Pivot. As you can see, sellers came in at the same location. You didn't need an indicator to guide you where sellers would be, did you? You only needed to look at the chart for a pivot high. Once the trend was violated, look for buyers (demand) to overcome sellers (supply) at a Support Pivot. As prices move higher in an uptrend, the concept of what was resistance becomes support applies. However, in the strongest trends prices will not pull back to what was resistance. I'm sure you've seen that in the past. At these times, don't chase. Wait for a Support Pivot to form. Once it does, you have a new or created reference point of support where buyers will step in again. Reversal candles are you confirmation at those points. In the chart of Facebook (FB), prices moved up from a low pivot point and there was no clear resistance area to the left. However, once a Resistance pivot formed there was a clear point where sellers (supply) overcame buyers (demand) and that would likely happen again. Once FB broke lower many will look for a retracement to sell, which is fine. However, when supply is overwhelming demand - prices cannot retrace that much. Don't chase out of fear of missing the move, even though that may happen. Wait for a Resistance Pivot to form. Once it does, use that reference point and your Candle Analysis to tell when to act. In the chart of the New Zealand Dollar versus the U.S. Dollar (NZD/USD.FXB) a climactic move lower occurred. This created a Pristine Price Void above and once a pivot low formed we had a reference point where buyers (demand) would show up again. However, we cannot know for sure if that low will hold, and we don't want buy in such a strong downtrend without confirmation. Rather, we want to wait to see if a reversal will form in the same area. If it does, we have that confirmation on the retest and a strong buy signal. I hope this Chart of the Week has provided you with the Light bulb moment I promised. All the best, Pristine Capital Holdings, Inc.
  14. Hi all, I am new on this forum, but I have been around the stock market for over 10 years now. I used to play the hypes, like shortening financials during the credit crunch and shorting FB . BUT since a couple of months I am busy developing my own day trading style and for me focussing on the momentum is a great help when going long. :missy: Have been reading al about day/momentum trading on this forum, but I have two questions that pop-up when I am busy trading small caps. 1) I haven't found any good technical analytic tools that are used yet. I use different EMA's to see trend switching, but the signal is mainly too late for my taste... So what is a good combination of indicators? 2) Stock scanning, I have a junkmail account to receive al kinds of pumps (good tips are always welcome!), but I would like to have a more active way to scan for good stocks. When using finance.yahoo.com you only can focus on the price gain and I just would love to have a tool that I can check sudden volume increase too. Maybe a alert of some kind? Hope to learn a lot and share my knowledge on this forum. Cheers :helloooo:, Pieter
  15. Technical indicators can be divided into two classes: trend indicators which indicate what the future direction of the price of the asset will be and momentum indicators which indicate the strength of such directional movements. Examples of trend indicators are the Bollinger bands, moving averages and the Parabolic Stop and Reverse (SAR) indicator.
  16. In forex analysis, divergence is usually described as positive or negative. Positive divergences are seen when indicator readings are moving higher when prices are moving lower. Negative divergences are seen when prices are moving higher and indicators begin to move lower.
  17. NinjaTrader 7 Indicators

    Hello All: I have been a trader for a very long time. Each of these indicators are based on ^ADD. I find NinjaTrader 7 lacking and does not have what I think are basic indicators. Listed below are some of what I want: These are for market analysis. (1). Cumulative Advance/Decline Line The advance/decline line is the most popular of all internal indicators by far. It is a very simple measure of how many stocks are taking part in a rally or sell-off. This is the very meaning of market breadth, which answers the question, "how broad is the rally?" The formula for the advance/decline line looks like this: A/D Line = (# of Advancing Stocks - # of Declining Stocks) + Yesterday's A/D Line Value The most popular data used for the A/D line is from the NYSE or Nasdaq markets. It is cumulative and normally plots a line similar to the price chart of the given index. The A/D line can be used alone or together with the price chart to look for divergences. A divergence suggests that a move in the price chart is unsupported by the broad market, and it should, therefore, be taken as a warning of an impending turning point in the index or market. A traditional technical indicator, such as a moving average or a stochastic oscillator, can be applied to the chart or used to smooth the signals it gives. (2). Advance/Decline Spread A variation on the A/D line is the A/D spread. Just as its name implies, the A/D spread charts the difference between the number of advancing stocks and declining stocks in a given market on a given day. Unlike the A/D line, the spread is not a cumulative chart, so each day is calculated separately. The formula for the A/D spread looks like this: A/D Spread = # of Advancing Stocks - # of Declining Stocks The chart of the A/D spread is an oscillator that revolves around a zero line. The A/D spread is interpreted much like any oscillator with overbought and oversold levels near the extremes of the chart. When the A/D spread crosses above its zero line, this means more stocks are advancing than declining, and vice versa. This oscillator is extremely fast, so a moving average is usually applied to slow the chart's movements and signals. The technician can fine tune the number of days set for the moving average to the market data. (3). Advance/Decline Ratio Another variation on the A/D line is the advance/decline ratio, which divides the advancers by the decliners. Here is the formula: A/D Ratio = # of Advancing Stocks / # of Declining Stocks This formula creates values that cannot be less than zero because it is a fraction (or ratio). A value of 3 means that three times as many stocks advanced as declined. Any value less than 1 means more stocks declined than advanced. Because of the nature of fractions, the chart is more legible using a logarithmic scale. Like the A/D spread, this chart moves quickly, so it's usually smoothed with a moving average. (4). Absolute Breadth Index The absolute breadth index is a measure of internal volatility. It calculates the absolute value of the difference between the number of advancing and declining stocks, making it a slight variation on the A/D spread. The formula for ABI looks like this: ABI = | (# of Advancing Stocks - # of Declining Stocks) | Because the ABI is an absolute, its value will always be positive. The chart is a representation of the volatility in the spread between advancers and decliners. The ABI can be smoothed using a moving average to facilitate drawing longer-term trend lines. A fast-paced, choppy chart of the ABI can indicate a choppy, range-bound market. (5). Breadth Thrust Breadth thrust is an internal indicator that is somewhat more complicated and harder to find. It is a ratio of moving averages that creates an excellent judge of market momentum. The formula looks like this: Thrust = x-Day Moving Average of Advancing Stocks / x-Day Moving Average of (Advancing Stocks + Declining Stocks) Since this formula creates a ratio whose denominator is a sum of both advancers and decliners, the value cannot be greater than 1 or less than zero. The breadth thrust indicator, therefore, creates a percentage value that moves just like a traditional oscillator from 1 to 100 (or .01 to 1.00). Breadth thrust can be read just like a stochastic or RSI, where overbought and oversold levels are at the extremes. Divergence with the underlying price chart points to weakening momentum. The number of days to set for the moving averages should be determined by the time-period being evaluated. (6). Arms Index (TRIN) Developed by Richard Arms, TRIN is a double-ratio that divides the A/D ratio by the A/D volume ratio. The formula is somewhat long but, fortunately, the TRIN charts for the NYSE and Nasdaq are some of the easier internal indicators to find on the internet. For those who are curious, here's the formula: TRIN = (# of Advancing Stocks / # of Declining Stocks) / (Volume of Advancing Stocks / Volume of Declining Stocks) For reasons that should now be obvious, the value of TRIN cannot be less than zero. The Arms Index is read somewhat counter intuitively. A value of less than 1 means advancing stocks are getting more than their share of volume, which is bullish for the market. When the value of TRIN is more than 1, declining shares are taking an outsized amount of volume, which is bearish for the market. TRIN is usually smoothed using a moving average, which should be tuned to the time-period being evaluated. Trend lines drawn from the moving average reveal the direction of market momentum. (Remember that the value for TRIN moves down as advancing volume goes up). (7). McClellan Oscillator Searching for an even more refined internal indicator, Sherman McClellan designed his own oscillator. Though the calculations for McClellan's Oscillator are far too complicated to compute by hand, they help demonstrate how the indicator works, so here they are: McClellan Oscillator = [ 19-Day Exp. Moving Average of (# of Advancing Stocks - # of Declining Stocks) ] / [ 39-Day Exp. Moving Average of (# of Advancing Stocks - # of Declining Stocks)] This formula creates a ratio comparing the 19-day and 39-day EMA of the A/D spread. The chart is an oscillator that ranges from +100 to –100 with overbought and oversold levels usually found at +70 and –70 respectively. The McClellan Oscillator can be read just like any other oscillator and is usually not smoothed, but it can be charted with a moving average as an indicator line. I am not a programmer. I am a trader. Where can I find these? Or would some of you want to take on this project? Thanks, YoderIII
  18. The basic premise has always been that volume (or money flow) may be a leading indicator to price action. This indicator is a variant of the more commonly used indicator On Balance Volume. They are both used to confirm price changes by looking at whether there is more volume on buying or selling sessions.
  19. i'm a little confused about what the difference is.. i would like to adjust the settings a little as well.. they seem to produce alot of noise.. anyone with experience with these can help?
  20. The NYSE Tick Index gives us the relationship of stocks up ticking versus down ticking at their last traded price. The Tick is an extremely useful tool for intraday traders. For Example: If there are 3000 stocks trading on the NYSE and 1500 trade higher from their previous price and 500 trade lower than their last price the Tick will read +1000. But wait what about the other 1000 stocks? They could be unchanged from their last price. When using the Tick we are looking for extremes to enter or exit a trade. Tick readings of +1000 or -1000 are considered very strong as we typically trade between 1000 most of the time on the NYSE. On this day, a relative high tick would be a reading above 400. Allow the tick to establish itself for the day during the first 30-mins or so of the NYSE session. Ticks inside 400 are simply noise. Tips for Using the Tick: Tick readings within |400| indicate chop, ignore them On a range day you can look to fade tick extremes A 1 period moving average can make it easier to see the trend of the Tick Note the extreme tick readings for the day: When we get a high tick and a high in price at the exact same time, this could indicate the high of the day. When a high tick prints without a simultaneous high price we can continue to make new highs, until a new high tick is reached (the reverse is true for a low tick followed by new lows). Here are some trading examples of how I use the tick.

  22. Hi all I would gladly hear your recommendations. I am wondering is there a way to pick up on these short movements when the price goes continuously in one direction for 10 pips or so. I would be grateful for recommending me a few indicators that would help me to determine that. What I am thinking of is to do a few (2-3) very small trades a day - a 3 pip take profit and a 3 pip stop loss + spread, per trade. It gives approximately 2:1 risk-reward ratio. Obviously, in order for it to be profitable a very high win rate is needed. That's why I want to choose favourable market conditions and a proper currency pair. I'm working on MT4. Do you have any recommendations about the indicators I could use, currency pair and the time frame/number of ticks per bar I should try? Cheers P. Help with detecting short, few minute, one direction price shifts
  23. Traders, Programmers, Scientists, Have you ever wondered how the trading universe truly functions? Or how the plethora of trading indicators and styles mesh together to form each market as it is presented to us? Is this the answer to the ultimate question of life, the universe, and everything or even the holy grail? Well here's your opportunity to discuss or share your thoughts and musings, studies and strategies. This is the Traders Laboratory and we are here to make discoveries and enlighten!! TheNegotiator.
  24. I've been searching around trying to find a decent set of indicators for NinjaTrader. I came across a few sites like ninja-indicators.com, indicator warehouse, trading123, emini watch, etc. I'm trying to avoid dumping a bunch of cash for a single product that won't work. Right now, I am leaning towards ninja-indicators because they have the largest quantity versus cost. Most sites don't seem to offer indicators in bulk, nor do they have any kind of trial. If it makes a difference, my primary market is the E-Mini S&P. I'm trying to get a couple of points a day - this is not my primary method of income. What do you guys recommend? I'd rather hear from actual profitable traders in this form first than have to worry about hunting down my cash, if needed. Thanks for any input.
  25. I recently started a series on my blog about the evolution of my trading, beginning with my trading using the eminiwatch method which consists of sine wave cycles on multiple timeframes. When I got rid of all that my results improved quite a bit but there was still one problem - the psychological issues! I would do anything to avoid a loss. And that had to change. So I set out to change my thinking and my beliefs so that I can accept small losses and keep them small. It's not easy to do and I had a small relapse yesterday but overall I'm making a lot of progress. I've been writing about all this and I'd love to get some feedback on it. I've been journaling it as I go and my results are improving daily. So I hope you will find it useful. The series starts here: A look back on my journey - Part 1
