Chart Benefits and Reference Videos Below

Chart Reference below for members to identify chart templates by name and features.  Find out more at Active Trader Setups Trading and Charting Package.

The chart template names are shown in the lower left hand corner indicator panel.  When reloading a template this is the file name you will want to load on to your chart.  You can reload a template on the chart you already have open.

IF YOU ARE HAVING ISSUES WITH A CHART - THE FIRST THING TO TRY IS TO DUPLICATE CHART IN A NEW TAB - many times your chart will reload and be free of issues.

Another issue we have see recently with NinjaTrader (they can't replicate) is when you open your workspace and a few charts have candlesticks but no other indicators.  If you right click the chart, CLICK INDICATORS, and then view the indicators listed in the lower left corner and find there to be no indicators shown.

IF YOU WILL CLOSE THE WORKSPACE AND DO NOT SAVE, then reopen and see if the issue has resolved itself. If not you need to close workspace any NOT SAVING and restart Ninja Trader.

A work around we have been using is as follows:  Once you have your preferred workspace as you want it.  And if you saved that workspace under a different name as we have advised in tutorials.  When you have the workspace open without any issues (a restart may be required)  SAVE the workspace under another name for a second working copy.  THEN when the no indicator showing issue presents itself, close the workspace WITHOUT SAVING.  Then simply open you Second Copy and hopefully it will be without issue.  The next time you restart both will likely be working again.

If you have to totally rebuild a chart from scratch.  First you have to go to Tools > New Chart and select a symbol.  You will need to select the Data Series on the Right, then you will need to look in the upper left area and select the same symbol again and load another Data Series.  Most ATS Charts have 2 or more data series.  You must have the proper data series loaded on a new chart before you can load the chart template.

How to Replace a Corrupt Chart - ATS NinjaTrader Education Series  (coming soon)

Please note there is a video explanation of each chart, what indicators are shown and how to interpret the indicators.  (Many indicators will be on other charts - thus each video will have repetition - WHICH IS GOOD.)

ADDITIONALY:   Near the end of each video you will find a Step by Step instruction to re-create the chart completely from scratch for the those times a chart gets out of wack in some way and you need to rebuild it to keep your workspace intact. 

Please NOTE in the upper left hand corner of the first chart.  You see:  ES 09-19 (ATSWickAlgo), ES 09-19 (120 Minute) - this chart has 2 Data Series loaded before the chart template can be loaded.

Many charts you are able to modify the STS Algo and ATSWickAlgo  (the STS Algo Factor setting and the ATSWickAlgo brick size setting must match).

Also Note the Medium Blue Current Price in the lower left corner and the Pink spread in the lower right corner.  (These are on every chart)

Futures and forex 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 life style. 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. Hypothetical performance results have many inherent limitations, some of which are described below. no representation is being made that any account will or is likely to achieve profits or losses similar to those shown; in fact, there are frequently sharp differences between hypothetical performance results and the actual results subsequently achieved by any particular trading program. One of the limitations of hypothetical performance results is that they are generally prepared with the benefit of hindsight. In addition, hypothetical trading does not involve financial risk, and no hypothetical trading record can completely account for the impact of financial risk of actual trading. for example, the ability to withstand losses or to adhere to a particular trading program in spite of trading losses are material points which can also adversely affect actual trading results. There are numerous other factors related to the markets in general or to the implementation of any specific trading program which cannot be fully accounted for in the preparation of hypothetical performance results and all which can adversely affect trading results.

 

CFTC Rule 4.41

CFTC RULE 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.
