SST General Issues

Recommended Posts

Hi All

 

Thank you Netpicks and SST I think this is a great idea to give us a Forum.

 

Just wanted to say thanks and I hope that I can help and be helped here.

 

In some ways SST is very simple in others it can feel very daunting and its not always easy/appropriate to ask a question in the OC as some queries can be a little too complex to key in and ask TJ to respond immediately.

 

I am looking forward to the re-arranged new Calc settings and just to make this post actually ask something, I would like to request that TradePlans are issued in a uniform way and also to make it clear where an extra Decimal place is appropriate or not.

 

Many thanks guys and here's to the success of SST and this forum

 

Cheers.

Good first post, Alan, and I agree.

 

Also, if there is any way, for TradePlans to be like

presets in MT4, where they can just be installed

all in one piece. Wow....that would be something.

 

Thanks SST home team.

Thanks for starting us out guys. One of the reasons for the reordering of the input names for the Tradestation calc is so that the MT4 and Ninja Trader calcs will also be in the same order. So it should be very easy to set the calcs to the settings shown in the screen shots.

 

As far as the extra decimal, if the stop is supposed to be entered at 4 pips below the channel for a long example, then for Tradestation we would need to enter that input as 40, to make up for the 5th digit. I'm not sure where the confusion is. Everyone should know how their broker is quoting their forex markets. I guess I'm not sure how to present the tradeplans in a more uniform way either. I think the new calc will help with that, but each tradeplan might require its own approach. For example a TF 377 tick is going to be different from a EURJPY 5 minute chart. Perhaps if you can be more specific I can try to accommodate your ideas.

Hey TJ.

Yes now this is GREAT STUFF!

 

Thanks for inisiate the SST here in the UTA forum.

 

Like Alan said , the SST can be easy(for some) , but what's making it hard for me is all that V12 H/P in it's enjin. Man , this is one h..ll of a powerfull system. Awesome TJ.

I'm just taking this system from page 1 onwards.

 

TJ I missed some OC and VIP traderooms. I see you mentioned a new/updated calc.

Will it also be for Metatrader and when will it be available.

 

Thanks

Hein

Hein,

 

I'm not sure I understand your V12 H/P comment. As far as the new calc, it is ready and should be up on the backoffice site now for download. Make sure you install the subscription update first. If you have any questions or need help, send in a support ticket to support@sevensummitstrader.com.

 

I'm happy to hear that everyone is getting the feel and really liking the SST. It has been amazing since its release and those that really apply themselves to learn it will be richly rewarded. I think everyone is going to find that it really isn't so hard to learn either. It's all about the tradeplan and how one manages their trading. The SST is so powerful but without harnessing that power with control and precision, a trader still will find himself or herself faced with the same issues that haunt most traders. Remember why the SST is called the Seven Summits Trader in the first place and make sure you pay attention to ALL seven summits.

TJ, what do you mean back office site? Do you mean the /setup?

 

It just shows a video when I go there. Would it be possible that there could be an official way of advising us of significant topics?

 

Thanks, Alan

Alan,

The back office is just NetPicks lingo for the download site where you originally downloaded

your indicators. You should periodically check back there because that's where you will get the latest set of indicators for the charting platform you are using.

    • "without bearing any loss?"  That's a really tough question n meat.  Are you serious?! "without bearing any loss" - hm?  Can you think of any trade or investment that is completely risk free?  Can you think of any trade or investment that is completely loss free? I've seen even routine, highly reliable ( at the time ) arb's lose money try this - go to japan , borrow 10 billion yen, leave 'japan', go to _________, never make the first payment on principle or interest ... whoops- that has risks too.  try this - start your own bank... whoops that has risks too.  try this - start your own digital cash.  If you play it right, all you risk is your time on the computer and your connectivity costs   ... if you really need to avoid loss, stay away from trading - period! ... bcse you are going to have 'ANY' loss in trading. Better to embrace loss.  Both intra personally and in terms of your capital, make each loss the best, minimum/optimum, loss it can be ...     PS Stick around some helpful soul will tell n meat to get on sim and practice until ... I'll take bets right now it won't work for n meat   PS when is the next Lab meeting?  I have an agenda item to add... TL needs to order new GM mice from a different vendor

      MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 16th August 2018.



      FX News Today

      Asian Market Wrap: 10-year Treasury yields are up 1.8 bp at 2.880%, 10-year JGBs up 0.7 bp at 0.094% as of 05:35GMT, as stocks move up from early lows on trade talk hopes. Asian sold off early in the session amid concerns over global growth and particularly China, after a Sino-related tech slump saw Wall Street heading south yesterday. Reports that China and the US are preparing a low level round helped to put a floor under markets, however, and mainland China bourses managed to move higher, while other indices are up from early lows. Topix and Nikkei are down -0.78% and -0.21% respectively. The Hang Seng is still down -0.395, but CSI 300 and Shanghai Comp are now up 0.61% and -0.20% respectively. The Kospi slumped -0.87% after returning from holiday and the ASX 200 is down -0.035. Meanwhile, US futures are moving higher with Chinese markets. Oil prices are slightly up from lows and the September US oil future is trading at USD 65.10 per barrel.

      FX Update: The Dollar and the Yen have both weakened, giving back recent gains amid an improvement in risk appetite. The US and China have agreed on a new round of trade talks, while Turkey has managed to halt the rout of the Lira and secure major investments from Qatar and China’s Alibaba. The USDIndex (DXY) is showing a 0.3% decline, at 96.44, heading into the London interbank open, while EURUSD is concurrently showing a 0.3% gain, earlier printing a two-session high of 1.1397, putting in some space from yesterday’s 13-month low at 1.1316. USDJPY has settled in the upper 110.00s after printing a low in Tokyo at 110.46. AUDJPY, viewed as a forex market proxy on risk appetite in global markets, is showing the biggest move with just over a 0.5% gain. Over the near-term, the Dollar and the Yen will likely remain apt to weaken before settling as developments on the latest phase of Sino-US negotiations are awaited.
