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:

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.
