Ninjatrader Webinar!

 

Thank you Mysticforex, and traders Laboratory. I just checked the recording - almost 70 minutes - so will reserve the

weekend for viewing this. I was pleased to read the comment by NinjaTrader_Staff in the thread:

 

http://www.traderslaboratory.com/forums/f114/charting-tools-comparable-bloombergs-9483.html#post114880 ... post #10:

 

Depending on your requirements, NinjaTrader is free if all you need is market analysis. If you want to trade,

we charge you. We support a number of different feeds including CQG (mentioned earlier in this thread) plus our

own brand, Kinetick.

 

I am hoping that NT charting will be superior to my MT4 set up, otherwise I see little point moving from the familiar

to the unfamiliar. It will need to provide an additional edge to what I am already doing.

 

I am at the stage where I am fast losing interest in trading generally speaking. I am weary of the constant struggle

to evolve with the changes. It seems that as soon as I begin to master the beast, it develops a new feature.

Seven years ago we didn't have the intervention of algorithmic trading and high frequency trading and so on ...

at least not to the extent we have today.

 

I am asking a serious question here, but a very simple one ... "Is it worth it?"

 

I think I have just wasted 7 years - the proverbial "7 years bad luck!"

 

My goal when I began trading was to ease from shift work to an income replacement situation. I never planned for

a Ferarri or a condominium in the French Riviera, with a private jet to whisk me there at will! It was a matter of

provision for a Baby-Boomer retirement that was never going to be delivered by the government.

 

Having reached break-even or a little better at times (the lines are still blurred) I am wondering if trading is really

ever going to deliver on the promise, or I will still be mired down in some kind of struggle to exploit my edge

for the next 5 years?

 

I watch these kinds of Webinars to see if somehow I can gain a critical tweak.

 

But nothing can change the events that have rocked the CHF and JPY pairs over the past 24 hours. How can traders

hope to compete in these conditions? Will a good trading/charting software package make any difference?

 

Here I am attempting to move away from the 15Min / 1H trades to 4H and Daily, but it gets destroyed in one session,

and stops are triggered. These are not the markets I began trading 7 years ago, with nice identifiable trends.

 

This is just sentimental and speculative chop, dredged up by frightened traders who drive trends north ... then south ...

then north again, without rhyme nor reason. Technically I am attempting to trade what I am seeing, not what my personal

bias tells me. Consequently I am attempting to follow Price Action and a couple of "tuner" indicators.

 

It is all turning to ashes and trash in front of my eyes. How can anyone follow this mess? I am serious when I lament

the loss of the longer trends we once saw.

 

You can't trade the trash ... the wheels are falling off.

 

Will NinjaTrader software make any difference to that?

 

We shall see.

I am hoping that NT charting will be superior to my MT4 set up...

 

I use NT and MT4, and I much prefer NT to MT4...just one person's perspective...

 

But nothing can change the events that have rocked the CHF and JPY pairs over the past 24 hours. How can traders

hope to compete in these conditions?

 

Depends on your perspective, I suppose...for me, I've been immensely enjoying the action on the JPY since the quake...big swings, large range, etc.

 

----------

 

I decided to watch the recording of the webinar since I use NT myself...it's so funny...I've been really annoyed that you "can't" move the data up and down...sure you can move it side to side, compress/decompress it vertically and horizontally, but I didn't think you could move it up and down....I learned via this webinar that you simply hold down control and move the vertical scale up and down!! LOL It's always annoyed me that I couldn't do that but I guess not enough to try to find out how to do it...but now I know! Thanks! :)

      MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 24th January 2019.



      FX News Today 10-year Bund yields are down -0.6 bp at 0.216% in opening trade. Treasury yields also fell back from overnight highs and are now down -0.2 bp at 2.739%, while JGB yields remain up 0.8 bp at 0.001%. Stock markets mostly managed to move higher in Asia overnight (excluding the Nikkei which closed with a loss of 0.09%) and DAX futures are also up, while US futures are narrowly mixed and the FTSE 100 future is swinging between gains and losses. Brexit developments remain in focus, but while in the UK officials continue to struggle to find a consensus on the way forward, the focus in the Eurozone turns to the ECB meeting today. Rates are widely expected to remain on hold and the guidance little changed, but Draghi is likely to sound much more cautious on the growth and inflation outlook, which should underpin stock markets. Norges Bank is also expected to hold rates steady and the data calendar focuses on Eurozone PMI readings, which are expected to show further weakness in the preliminary release for January. US earnings reports have helped to underpin risk appetite in recent days, while the ongoing government shutdown is preventing timely data releases and leaving investors focused on trade talk developments, company news and in Europe, Brexit jitters. Charts of the Day

      Main Macro Events Today EU Services, Manufacturing, and Composite PMI – The Services PMI is expected to come out at 51.5 in January, compared to 51.2 in December. This is expected to have a positive impact on the Composite PMI, which is expected to rise to 51.4 compared to 51.1 in December. The Manufacturing PMI is expected to have remained at the same levels as in December. World Economic Forum at Davos – The third day of the WEF annual meetings held in Davos and attended by officials from over 90 countries. Comments from central bankers and other influential officials can create significant market volatility. ECB Interest Rate Decision – ECB is not expected to proceed with any changes in the interest rate yet as it is has just started evaluating the effects from the end of QE in December. However, communication could provide important information regarding the future path of policy. US Jobless Claims – Initial Jobless Claims are expected to rise to 220k compared to 213k last week, while Continuing Jobless Claims are expected to decline slightly to 1.735M, compared to 1.737M last week. US Services, Manufacturing, and Composite PMI – Reductions in PMIs are expected in all sectors, in conjunction with the overall perception of a slowdown in the US, and the ongoing government shutdown. Support and Resistance Levels

    • Actions for the 23rd.  Hugely frustrating day, picked my spots but my timing was off.  I don't seem able to find a trade that will survive long enough for me to manage and test my patience, that in itself is testing me right now.
    • Actions for the 22nd.  I seem to be on a bad run, I'm really struggling with the opening minutes of the trades I'm taking and then get sucked into a little over trading.
    •   Date : 23rd January 2019.

      MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 23rd January 2019.



      FX News Today 10-year Treasury yields are down from overnight highs, but still up 0.7 bp at 2.746%, and 10-year JGB yields climbed 0.8 bp to -0.004%. Stock markets remained cautious during the Asian session. The Bank of Japan held policy steady, as expected, while further reducing its outlook for inflation. The resulting weakness in the Yen didn’t help stock markets and Topix and Nikkei dropped -0.60% and -0.14% respectively. The Hang Seng is also down -0.04%, despite mainland China markets initially moving higher as China’s central bank pumped liquidity into the banking system once again. Still, the measures are also a sign that officials are nervous about the slowdown in the economy and CSI 300 and Shanghai Comp are down -0.24% and -0.13%. The bank offered around 258 bln Yuan (USD 38 bln) to banks through its medium term lending tool. Markets continue to question the progress in the US-Sino trade talks, even though White House adviser Lawrence Kudlow said that the trade talks are still on and the story about cancelled preparatory meetings was “not true, there was never any meeting. We are moving toward negotiations.” The negotiations next week will be “very, very important” and “determinative”. Meanwhile, there are the first signs of a possible way out of the US government shutdown. Markets remain easily spooked, but appear to have already priced in a lot of risk last year and US stock futures are moving higher after yesterday’s sell off. Oil prices are trading at USD 53.27 per barrel. Charts of the Day

      Main Macro Events Today Canadian Retail Sales – After Wholesale Sales plummeted yesterday, Canadian Retail Sales are expected to have also declined by 0.4% m/m, with core Retail Sales (ex autos) expected to have declined by 0.6%. World Economic Forum at Davos –The second day of the WEF annual meetings held in Davos and attended by officials from over 90 countries. Comments from central bankers and other influential officials can create significant market volatility. Richmond Manufacturing Index – Expectations – The index is expected to have remained at a sub-zero level, standing at -2 after the -8 in the December release. Support and Resistance Levels

    • USDJPY Eyes The 109.88 Resistance Zone And Beyond USDJPY eyes the 109.88 resistance zone beyond as it looks to resume its upside pressure. On the upside, resistance comes in at 110.00 level. A turn above here will turn attention to the 110.50 level. Further out, we expect a possible move towards the 111.00 level if the earlier resistance is invalidated out. The next resistance resides at the 111.50. Its daily RSI is bullish and pointing higher suggesting further strength. On the downside, support comes in at the 109.50 level where a break will target the 109.00 level. Below that level will turn focus to the 108.50 level and then lower the 108.00 level. On the whole, USDJPY faces further upside pressure on corrective recovery.
