Hello to all!

Let me introduce one of the indicator I developed for NinjaTrader.

It works nice for trading futures market, but I think it will be also great for stocks.

I will not give full explain about it. Just what I can show you right now:

Red dots on chart - enter short on bar close

Green dots on chart - enter long on bar close.

 

The indicator code is very simple, but using some interesting tips. It also can be re-writed for any platform.

I wrote this indicator for scalping on 5min charts, but it also works nice with higher TF like 60m on 240m and Daily chart.

NASDAQ e50977b4e59c37a3c4e19c0c2f4955a8.png

 

I want to know your opinion about this enter points and answer one more question: Do you want this indicator in your arsenal?

 

Thanks!

This can't be considered a valuable tool for scalping... because you are not scalping. Further; any scalper worth his / her salt can tell you that you are missing the most productive trades of the day. Just looking at the charts you've posted that is obvious.

 

I would say, that if you desire to program an indicator for the purpose of scalping... you need to start over, and go with a faster chart than the 5M (try tick or volume charts).

The model I'm using can be also applied on any timeframe - I told this in the start post.

About "productive trades of the day" - for each trader it's own enter points and best opportunities. And I don't think that all the traders must trade the same way and enter in all of the methods. I think that founding something interesting or new is more usefull for today's trading.

 

Thanks for your comment!

I downloaded and installed your code from this thread.

It is fabulous. No full explanation is needed.

Best free code on the market - at any price!

Thx.

I'm very interested how could you download this code if I didn't upload it on the site. Very funny :)

 

To all who read this topic: i will not give the code or indicator for all of you. I will give the main idea and how to get those enter points to all people a little bit later. I really want to know opinions about those screenshots, your thoughts, your mind...

 

Huge thanks from my team and me to man, who answered this topic and told that we need to check tick timeframe - we didn't tried to check this TF before on this indicator, and we found that it's very usefull - it shows amazing results in real-time tests! Please, write me in PM - we really can develop amazing thing for us!

 

Have a nice weeked for all! Merry Christmas, guys!

Yevhen...

 

Actually, you didn't make the statement that the indicator could be applied to "any" timeframe. You mentioned one other timeframe that the indicator works well on (just for the record).

 

Actually, I would like to change what I said. In several instances you have indicated the most productive trades of the day (I might add that your entries are far more crisp than anything that my methods would have captured...that's impressive... because I'm good at what I do (I am impressed).

 

I bristle just a bit at using indicators for scalping, because all that I've seen either produce too many false signals, or they don't produce enough signals (trades are missed).

 

That's why I don't use indicators...

 

As a point of reference... zdo has said some kind words here, and I do respect the guy. As it stands... I have no interest in the indicator... because, I can do better without it.

 

If it pleases you, and if you would like, please work with the indicator in faster timeframes. Post it... I and others (scalpers) may see the light that you have envisioned.

Here is the screen of end of the day of S&P for today on 150Tick Timeframe

And here is 1M timeframe:

99a1a1055e7ce18717d830cfe6af9054.png

 

I'm not saing that this is a graal or something like this, but I have some interesting signals from my own indicator and I want to improve it and share with other. But before share I need to know that everyone are intrested in it or we can improve it together.

 

I started to create my own indicators because I know that all indicators that we have right now in standart versions - they all are not usefull - they shows signals very late. And that's the reason why I started to develop my own things. My concepts to develop the indicator are:

- very simple in calculations

- the less settings we have - the better

- indicator must calcultae current situation on market

- indicator must not be re-calculated

 

And this principles are shown in this little version of my theory. I hope we understand each other. If you want to discuss it more - we can call on skype and talk about it! It will be very pleasent to me.

 

Regards.

Yevhen....

 

I would have to look at the 150T ES chart in more detail, but color me impressed. As I don't have any coding experience I would be of no help in that regard, but possibly I can plant some seeds in your brain from a scalpers perspective. I'll PM you with an email address, and if you would like we can talk further.

 

Nice work, man... you've impressed a die-hard price action trader. I didn't see that coming... cool, you've made my day.

re “zdo has said some kind words here”

jpennyb, my words were sarcastic - not kind.

 

To clarify -

I find nothing wrong with the concepts themselves... Have backtested stuff like this until the cows came home. ...and

I have nothing at all against vendors either. I wish them all the best.

 

However, running Golden C promotions on the Coding Forum sub forum crosses a forum ethics line. This Coding Forum sub forum is only for those who are sharing code with everyone. clearly not what he is doing ... in his own words

To all who read this topic: i will not give the code or indicator for all of you. I will give the main idea and how to get those enter points to all people a little bit later.

 

he continues

I really want to know opinions about those screenshots, your thoughts, your mind...
This means the topic should have been started in the Technical Analysis sub forum ... and this conversation should be moved there now ... (more traffic there btw :))

From there, an appropriate transition to the Commercial Content sub forum could be made for “how to get those enter points to all people a little bit later”

 

... or this could get “very funny” - NOT!

I see no reason to give first version of indicator, cause it's only testing. And if somebody wants to help me - I'll be glad and also will share the indicator here in this topic after it will be ready to work!

I understand... and ...

I do see a reason.

 

Reason: (perceived) golden C / vendor abuses start fights, etc etc and run a surprising number of users off from trading forums like TL,... and traffic on TL is currently ‘sub optimal’... putting it nicely/to say the least...

btw if you didn’t have a golden C accompanying your posts’ contents and phrasing, I wouldn’t have said a word.

... YevhenShynkarenko, not after you personally at all... hope you find something profitable...

 

 

Let’s keep it simple -

If you post code in this sub forum (and ask for help in developing it (or not)) - that’s fine.

If you don’t post code - then get out Easy for you to move the whole conversation to the Technical Analysis sub forum

 

Wishing you all the best,

 

zdo

      Firebird is an indicator to identify the price spikes in the market. Firebird indicator first calculates a 10-period moving average, then shifts this moving average a certain percentage above and below the 10-period moving average. The shifted averages are drawn on chart as the red and green line. When price touches these lines, price spike is identified. Usually after a price spike, the trend reverses for some time. The indicator can be used to take advantage of this price behaviors. In daily chart usually the 10 period MA is shifted by 2 percent to form the price bands. On lower time frames like Hourly, Four Hour a smaller percentage price shift is used like 0.5% . The important consideration here is most of the price bars must be contained within the upper and lower bands.
      When price reaches above the upper red band, a sell position is opened. When price reaches the lower green band, buy position is opened. Trades can be managed with proper stop loss and take profit. In the picture, Firebird indicator is attached to daily chart of EUR/USD with 2% shift on MA. Note that almost all price bars are within the price bands. And when price extends beyond these bands, price trend reverses and comes back into the bands.

      I'm currently using Ninjatrader for my trading. But I have a problem with the Tick Chart and when I use any Indicator. When e.g. the market is very fast or my internet is slow (for a moment), then the value of the candles and indicator is wrong. 
      So I refresh the chart after every finished candle. 
      Does anybody know a software without this problem?

    • Came back to check on price after an hour of meditation, EU came within 3 ticks of target... Fascinating the ego brings up the story of betrayal, as if the market was out there to get me. I then reminded myself cool, this trade went over 2R. Even better yet, I acted consistently with executing my trading plan! Let the market do its thing. 
    • I took this limit long on the retest of the earlier 123 and support area. Target is near top of the zone. I notice that my target needs to be more mechanical in the sense that I may be influence to have a more/less aggressive target based on the results of the last trade. I have collected some modifications for the next batch of trades. 
    • Correction: the GU made it to 45 out of a 49 tick target. It was a 2.5R full target, not 3R. The EU long trade was 7:15am EST. I will refrain from getting up even earlier with the goal of not missing the next one. I notice after each trade, the mind, with the desire of wanting to experience a win, subtly pushes me to deviate from trading plan. My main concern with this set of 20 trades is build a greater sense of consistency in my execution and self trust. I realized the outcome of each individual trade absolutely does not matter. If I started to care about it, I am assuming that somehow I am responsible for the market's movement, which I am not. I am only responsible for following my trading plan, which can be adjusted after the 20 trades based on the stats I collect. 
    • GU closed for -1R. It made it to 2.8R but not quite the 3R. There was also a EU long trade that happened about 4:15am EST. FOMC is over now so let's see if we can get a nice trend setup today.  
    • Date : 22nd August 2019. MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 22nd August 2019. FX News Today * FOMC minutes did not provide strong clues on the direction of rates. * However, the lack of a signal that the Fed’s July rate cut was the start of an easing cycle was enough to eventually weigh on Treasuries. * Asian stock markets struggled as investors continued to digest the implications of yesterday’s Fed minutes and trading conditions remained quieter than usual ahead of Powell’s speech at Jackson Hole tomorrow. * Yields closed at their highs of the session after holding cheap levels all session. The curve narrowed below 1 bp as the short end underperformed. * US President Trump continued to criticize the Fed Chairman, while suggesting the US may strike a deal on trade, but that didn’t prevent US futures from heading south overnight. * Topix and Nikkei are currently down -0.13% and -0.09% respectively, despite improvements in PMI readings that were counterbalanced by an as expected decline in the All Industry Index. * The WTI future meanwhile fell back to $55.45 per barrel.   * Brexit: Merkel gives Johnson 30 days to solve Backstop conundrum. * Johnson is today expected in Paris, where the tone is likely to be harsher than in Berlin, although both Merkel and Macron have stressed that they are ready for a no-deal Brexit if there is no agreement. * The UK curve remains inverted out to the 10-year area. Charts of the Day Technician’s Corner *USDJPY printed a two-day low, at 106.28.The biggest mover, not surprisingly, has been AUDJPY, a forex market barometer of shifting risk-appetite patterns in global markets. The cross was showing a 0.5% loss heading into the London interbank open, and was testing one-week lows at 71.90. Next Support stands at 71.76 and 71.60. Resistance is at the pivot 72.20 level. Main Macro Events Today * Jackson Hole Symposium – Day 1 * Services and Manufacturing PMI (EUR, GMT 07:30-08:00) – July PMI readings highlighted manufacturing weakness. This picture is likely to be seen again in the preliminary readings for August, as Manufacturing PMI has been forecast at 46.3 from 46.5 last month, still down from 47.6 in June, and indicates a deepening recession in a sector that has been hit very hard by global trade tensions and no-deal Brexit risks. Meanwhile, Services PMI is expected to fall to 52.7 from 53.2. * Services and Manufacturing PMI (USD, GMT 13:45) – Preliminary Manufacturing is expected to grow in August, to 51.0 from 50.4, as Services PMI is likely to fall to 51.7 from 53. * New Zealand Retail Sales (NZD, GMT 22:45) – Usually considered an index of consumer confidence and overall consumption in the economy, higher retail sales point to higher consumption and hence higher economic growth which is good for the currency.
