New MP Software for Ninjatrader

Recommended Posts

You're right mezameo the fin-alg indicator looks like a sound investment, and we won't see anything like it for free for a long time, if ever.

Too bad that some things Investor R/T can do are still impossible on NT.

In addition to Dalton there is Don Jones at Cisco-futures.com. Don has been around along time (I believe that one of the co-authors, Jones, on Dalton's book is his son). There is a tremendous amount of information available free on his website and he offers a course for a reasonable fee. If you look at his site you will note that MP is a lot more than what is usually referenced--including 5-day, 10-day balances, etc... There is also updated data available only from cbot which identifies market participants from Institutional to Retail. Several well known and successful traders have been tutored here. Few of the MP charting programs include everything that you can get from cisco. Email or call Don and find out. I use Ninja and the Algo MP addon: it is better than Sierra or Ensign... by far. I don't pay $7 which is what cbot actually charges, but no one has asked. Market Delta includes MP as well. Frank Butera at BalanceTrader.com teaches another method which offers short term and swing trading ideas; he also runs a room in ensign's echat. Frank's method has a lot of merit and it is a reasonable price. Also note that the Algo MP addon can be split and merged with other days--the longer the market is in balance the more likely a better breakout. Frank's levels don't necessarily correspond to the Value Areas in the conventional sense (even Don at cisco often breaks down the VALUE areas into percentage parts, but I've found it to be very helpful. btw, Dalton's website puts out a weekly newsletter.

 

(I have have no affiliation with any of these parties at present. I prefer to learn and go my own way)

note that NinjaTrader Charts are free and you can purchase Fin-Alg MP at a reasonable price, utilize "opentick" data for free or very little, depending upon market. NT has a forum for developing and picking up free indicators and advanced order placement, etc... get your levels from MP and utilize whatever order book you like (adds redundancy) as "opentick" is not as fast or reliable as say TT, etc. You avoid the $20 cbot fee this way too. I usually run one data feed per pc, but not always necessary. My monthly fees for charts and data is now $5.00, where I once paid around $200...

Hi,

 

Just to let you know that I upgraded to NT 6.5 and had problems with NT crashing when changing the time frame on my MP charts once in a while. This is after I have purchased fin-alg MP.

 

Does anyone who has upgraded have the same problem?

 

thx.

"opentick" - you mean ZenFire?

dhivyalakshmy,

You can start by reading market in profile. go to http://www.cisco-futures.com

Imho it is not that hard to lean but putting it into practice takes some time.

I tried ninja with finag and it worked as was advertised. But I find I can do more with ensign windows. also check out http://www.enthios.com he post live trades setups using MP most days. also ensingsoftware has chat rooms with people using Mp and other stuff. try the bline room. its free. hope it helps trading is hard work that you got to love.

I have been following this thread from its start with interest. I am currently using eSignal w/ Market Profile and am less then impressed with their charts. As a result I was in the process of switching over to NinjaTrader until I looked at Investor/RT (as a result of this thread). Whilst NT may be free to start you must pay a license fee ($795 for single broker/$995 multi) if you go active. Though I initially liked NT I have had a couple instances of it crashing. The last time this happened it deleted any indicators I had off my charts - I was not impressed. This meant I had to rebuild them.

 

I've just started to evaluate Investor/RT and it certainly looks to be a powerful piece of software. All the indicators you could possibly want appear to be there. Setting them up the way want seems to be far more intuitive then NT.

 

I'm also definitely impressed with the looks of Market Profile. For anyone who has done Don Jones' Market Profile course at http://www.cisco-futures.com the Market Profile package in Investor/RT looks to mirror his material very closely. For this reason alone I am leaning strongly to Investor.

 

I would much appreciate feedback from anyone who is currently using Investor/RT and how you find the software.

Nice new MP for Ninja...its getting there at least.

dValueArea in the file sharing part of the ninja forum.

 

Looks pretty nice although it seems to be doing some weird split as far as having 2 profiles a day.

 

Good catch. Though it is probably worth repeating that the FinAlg package is absolutely excellent for the couple of hundred bucks (or whatever it is) that it costs. Mind you this looks good.....the big question will it work correctly on historical data? Yeah i know wait for NT 7.0.

 

Edit: looking closely at he chart I would guess yes....looks like it is averaging volume across a bar.

True, I don't want to take anything away from Finalg. That is certainly the king for MP on ninja. The only reason I haven't bought it is because you can't modify the code. It does suck his stuff is all locked because he certainly appears to be the ninja master.

There is a new MP type indicator in the ninja forums, it uses either TPO, Volume on Close, or Volume weighted TPO, and plots in history and also shows Value Area and POC, and shows session, and off session profiles.

 

This is the only way I can figure to link you to it.

Dean, thanks for posting this. The example picture on the Ninja forum is too hard see for any detailed examination of the indicator. When I clicked on the picture, I got a download box for a zip file (for downloading the code, I presume). I was hoping to see a bigger picture. Any chance you could post a better, or at least bigger, example?

Thanks, Tasuki

    • I have a serious question. It’s a question I’m grateful that many lab partners will have many good answers.   -   What are the results when the fed transitions from being the ‘buyer of last resort’ of bonds to being the ‘only buyer’ of bonds? thx
    • Date : 2nd June 2020. FX Update – June 2 – Weaker USD. Trading Leveraged Products is risky AUDUSD, H1 The Dollar has remained soft, with risk sentiment in global markets holding up, albeit with a weakening grip. Wall Street finished with modest gains yesterday, while the USA500 is moderately in the negative, and while Asian and European markets have gained, they are up by only a limited extent. US President Trump is weighing military action and imposing curfews in cities across the country in an effort to quell rioting, while there are glass-half-full market narratives arguing that, with many assets having recouped to pre-pandemic levels, there may be less upside potential with most economies across the world not expected to fully recover until such time as there is a vaccine or cure for the coronavirus. Despite the flagging risk-on tone, the narrow trade-weighted USDIndex edged out a new low, at 97.74, which is the lowest level seen since March 16th. EURUSD has remained buoyant, and has breached yesterday’s 11-week high at 1.1155, to trade to 1.1178. USDJPY remained in a narrow range in the mid-to-upper reaches of the 107.00s, which has been the case for about two weeks now. Sterling has outperformed on Brexit-related news, with the London Times reporting that the UK government is expected to signal a compromise on fisheries and “level playing field” trade rules if the EU backs off from its “maximalist” demands on regulatory alignment and fishing access, according to unnamed sources. Cable printed a one-month peak at 1.2555, while EURGBP fell to an 18-day low at 0.8865. AUDUSD edged out a fresh four-month high, at 0.6844. The RBA did the expected and left monetary policy unchanged at its June review today, maintaining the cash rate at 0.25%, while signalling that “the accommodative approach will be maintained as long as it is required.” USDCAD printed a fresh trend low at 1.3507, the lowest seen since March 9th. The Canadian Dollar, like other oil-correlating currencies, remains supported by the ongoing buoyancy in oil prices, ahead of the rescheduled OPEC+ meeting this week, while USOil trades at $36.00 currently.

    • Date : 01st June 2020. Events to Look Out for This Week.Geopolitics are back in the picture giving the markets pause and adding another layer of uncertainty to a shaky global outlook. However other than US-China tension, next week the global data dockets are heavy and results are likely to underscore the cratering in global economies this quarter. The calendar includes the US Jobs Report and Monetary policy meeting from RBA, BOC and ECB.Monday – 01 June 2020 Caixin Manufacturing PMI (CNY, GMT 01:45) – The Caixin manufacturing PMI is expected to slightly improve to 49.6 from 49.4 in May. ISM Manufacturing PMI (USD, GMT 14:00) – The ISM index is expected to slip to 40.0 in May from 41.5 in April, compared to a recession-low of 34.5 in December of 2008. Tuesday – 02 June 2020   Interest Rate Decision & Statement (RBA, GMT 04:30) – The RBA meet and are unlikely to move rates below historic lows at 0.25%, as RBA Gov. Lowe is his recent statement repeated that negative interest rates extraordinarily unlikely. RBA will maintain its expansionary monetary policies until progress is made towards full employment and we are confident on inflation . Wednesday – 03 June 2020   Gross Domestic Product (AUD, GMT 01:30) – GDP is the economy’s most important figure. Q1’s GDP is expected to slow down at 0.3% q/q and 1.9% y/y. Unemployment data (EUR, GMT 07:55-09:00) – The German unemployment rate in May is expected to have increased to 6.2% from 5.8%, while unemployment change is expected to have declined to 194K from April’s 373K. Meanwhile, Eurozone’s April unemployment rate should rise to 7.7% from 7.4% last month. ADP Employment Change (USD, GMT 12:15) – Lasts month, ADP report revealed a -20,236k April drop that undershot the -19,520k private payroll decline by -716k. For May a -9,000k drop is seen, since nearly all measures of activity rose in May from a trough. ISM Non-Manufacturing PMI (USD, GMT 14:00) – The ISM-NMI index is expected to rise to 46.0 from 41.8 in April. Most producer sentiment reports should show May rebounds after huge April declines due to mandatory closures, on top of the demand hit initially associated with the pandemic, and the oil price plunge with the OPEC price war, as re-openings are underway in most states. The April drop in the ISM survey was much smaller than the declines seen in other measures, however, and this is why we expect a further drop in May for that measure. Interest Rate Decision and Monetary Policy Statement (CAD, GMT 14:00) – On April 15, the Bank held rates steady at 0.25%, matching widespread expectations. In the next policy statement, the BoC is expected to leave rates unchanged, the Bank of Canada Governor Poloz said is his last interview that negative rates are needed only in extreme conditions. Thursday – 04 June 2020   Interest Rate Decision, Monetary Policy Statement and Press Conference (EUR, GMT 11:45 & 12:30) – Given that Lagarde buried any hope of a “mild” recession, the stage seems set for an extension of the PEPP program in size and duration at next week’s council meeting with an end date next year giving the economy more time to recover and EU aid programs to come into effect. Given that the ECB is no longer putting much hope in a quick recovery it is already clear that with the current time frame until the end of December that would risk a sharp widening of spreads in the second half of the year, when there is also the risk of a second wave of Covid-19 infections. Jobless Claims (USD, GMT 12:30)– US initial jobless claims contracted last week by -323k to 2,123k in the week ended May 23 after tumbling -241k to 2,446k previously. Claims have been declining since surging to 6,867k in the March 27 week. Friday – 05 June 2020   Event of the Week – Non-Farm Payrolls (USD, GMT 12:30) – A -2,200k May nonfarm payroll drop is anticipated, following a -20,527 April collapse, and a -701k drop in March. The jobless rate should rise to 17.5% from 14.7% from April, versus 4.4% in March. Nearly all measures of activity rose in May from a trough just after the April BLS survey week, but the initial and continuing claims data suggest a weaker labor market in mid-May than mid-April. Average hourly earnings are assumed to fall -1.0% with a partial unwind of the April distortion from layoffs being concentrated in low-wage categories. This would translate to a drop in the y/y gain to 6.6% from 7.9%. Labour Market Data (CAD, GMT 12:30) – Canada employment plunged -1993.8k in April, nearly doubling the -1010.7k tumble in March to leave a massive and rapid reversal in the labour market as firms cut jobs as most of the economy ceased to function amid the stay at home orders the began around the middle of March. For May employment should revealed a 4,000k drop in jobs, doubling again last months number. B]Always trade with strict risk management.
