Hello,

Thanks for the forum post.

This is a forum for technical support on the platform. You will get responses from our support team on questions you have for using the platform as well as NinjaScript programming. Since this is primary a support forum you will not have readily available information on trading advice here unfortunately. We rely on our 3rd party educators for this information. Please check them out here:

http://www.ninjatrader.com/partners#Education

If you have any questions on creating a NinjaScript strategy please let me know!

Happy Trading!

The more important questions are:
  1. Do you have a trading method that you use that has clearly defined rules capable of being coded?
  2. Have you traded this method like an automaton, allowing yourself no room to think, and taking all trades even if they seem to make no sense?
  3. Is the method making money?
If the answers to all those questions are "yes", then someone may agree to code the method for you into a Strategy.

I seriously doubt that anyone is going to just give away his/her Strategy for free. It takes way too long to find a method, then to code it, for anyone to expect to get it for free.

Emphasis mine.

Do you really mean that? You want a black-box strategy that will have no losses?!

When you find the Holy Grail, let me in on the secret: I would like to drink some Kool-Aid from it.

But seriously, what would be the incentive to sell you or anyone a system that is guaranteed to make money with no losses, and no work on your part? Do you think that the Hedge Funds would not already have bought it up and let it loose on the market? Oh, that's right, they did: it is called HFT. Do you have a few million lying around that you can use to set up a HFT outfit?

I've taken quite a few licks since summer 2008.. been learning every since I had some 'dumb luck'.

but I think I'm onto something these days.

I've been watching every intraday market swing since late 2009?..

I've read many of books too.. only a few were really helpful, but maybe .01% contributed towards my 'system'.

this is funny. yes I do have a method that does consistently make money with very little DD, however you don't have enough money to buy it. however, if you need a little common sense advise on trading. send me a private msg or email.

Default NinjaTrader Automated Strategies Free for demo/sim Trading


Links below for free ninjaTrader strategies


Most certainly there are vendors who offer real systems that work and some offer them free for demo/sim and some of them are open source also :-) we like to try to tip the balance back in your favor for success at trading. We Love NinjaTrader and we love trading with it and creating trading systems and tools for all traders! So here are some free strategies to try obligation free!!!

MicroTrends is unique in the NinjaTrader trading software vendor community.
  1. We really do trade, we really do design & write and use our own software for day trading & Swing Trading.
  2. MicroTrends NinjaTrader Trading Indicators & Strategies are 100% FREE unlimited for trading on demo, with no risk, obligation or payment details required:

TRADERS! Trading is hard enough!!! Do not throw your money down the drain on some supposed secret software with cherry picked videos or some other marketing ploy to part you from your cash.

In fact Do not believe anybody. Not even us! Only believe what you see as scientific fact with your own efforts and eyes from your direct handson experience.. you cannot possibly trade something someone gave you - you need to experiment and take a long time to do so... to build faith in the system or to reject it...

Why would you pay for something you do not know will be viable for you. You don't know the risk requirement, style, psychology, or anything until you dive in. Use something professionally designed and tested and traded. Test it yourself for free. Use your first hand direct experience and statistical evidence to understand, If something can suit you, win ratio, expectancy, drawdown, capital, PMD, Risk Reward etc

Take your time. be prepared to spend 3 months to 3 years in test/research phases or more. are you wanting to learn how to trade or be a software consumer reliant on whatever is trending in the current market phase.. systems go in and out of viability. learn the market conditions they work in and why they win and lose... it takes dedication and a whole lot of time... NO WE WILL NOT GIVE YOU THE BEST SETTINGS . . that's a myth...dont be lazy! you find what works for you and you will be able to trade it... 1 system that works for me - might scare the hell out of you :-)
this is not a 1 size fits all game... so we have a large set of strategies which be tuned and traded separately or in fact combined and consolidated together...

its a long way to the top if you are going to be successful at this consistently. For this reason we provide all our software free for sim and demo mode so you are not penalized for that discovery phase and charged for something you might not be suited to or might not like later on... take your time, be systematic...patient and don't pay for the privilege of that testing phase - save your cash for trading capital.

Futures, foreign currency and options trading contains substantial risk and is not for every investor. An investor could potentially lose all or more than the initial investment. Risk capital is money that can be lost without jeopardizing ones financial security or lifestyle. Only risk capital should be used for trading and only those with sufficient risk capital should consider trading. Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results. View Full Risk Disclosure.

CFTC Rules 4.41 - Hypothetical or Simulated performance results have certain limitations, unlike an actual performance record, simulated results do not represent actual trading. Also, since the trades have not been executed, the results may have under-or-over compensated for the impact, if any, of certain market factors, such as lack of liquidity. Simulated trading programs in general are also subject to the fact that they are designed with the benefit of hindsight. No representation is being made that any account will or is likely to achieve profit or losses similar to those shown.
