Re: Google Data

I sent an email to Google asking them to add to their portfolio of information products by buying out or competing with CSI. They could easily offer the same mass information service with undoubtedly far superior Google software and product savvy. Even without trying they would offer better custome...

Dont get all crazed about this. These types of 'scnanigan transactions' are not unheard of amongst mainly retail brokers. Its part of why commodities has the 'bad boy' reputation it has earned thru the decades. This is a symptom of the fact that more and more cta's are really just guys sitting at ho...

The Unfair Advantage ASCII Field Layout for this is DOHLCVINU. Actually it's just the U on the end, but this is the whole format we use in Trading Blox. The N is the contract month being traded, per the roll, so we know what month we are in. Tim, I wasnt up to speed on this. I just have DOHLCVI So,...

SLUGGO SAYS: Sometimes when I meet a trader who triggers rollovers using open interest, I ask why. Why open interest rather than volume, for instance? The answers usually are surprising, at least surprising to me. The most surprising answer of all is: "I was in a hurry so I just copied the way some ...

Mine did it too. I think there is a switch that will only roll after two days of higher OI. To follow that however would mean always rolling ++ after the 'trade' has made its move.

Perhaps download a fresh database file for ED and rebuild your output files if they are corrupt.

I would like to see a current view of the range extension chart. Seems it could be a good way to filter index systems.

The point is where the market is trading at the moment when you enter your stop. If it's closed, it doesn't trade anywhere, per definition. So you should be able to enter any stop order off market hours. Once the market opens, there is a price and if this price has "traded through your stop", your ...

Hiramhon, Yes, I am going about the testing myself. You do not need to explain the reasons for doing my own work. My intent was to derive possible valuable ideas I had not thought of. Random input... As I am in the early phase of testing it would be easy to incorporate new ideas at this point. This ...

Fixed Ratio in Varitrader 1.5?

Greetings all, I am curious if VeriTrader 1.5 includes the fixed radio model? I know conventional wisdom says use a fixed %, which can be modified and safeguarded in many ways as discussed on this board, the Turtle System via c.f. {thanks!}, and other places. However, I wonder if anyone here has don...
