Building A Signal Dashboard

Recently, I had the opportunity to work with an awesome client who basically hired me to build his personal trading dashboard on NinjaTrader 7.  One thing led to another, and 8 large payments later, this trader was able to combine every factor of his trading decisions into one neatly designed indicator.  While I can’t give away his logic, I can share with you some cool features of the final product:

  • mouse rollover events give additional detail about candlestick patterns
  • small buttons in the upper right corner allow him quickly enable / disable certain plots
  • small buttons in the lower right corner all him to quickly enable / disable audio alerts
  • ribbon at the top (seen in picture) consists of all signs to be going short
  • ribbon at the bottom consists of all signs to be going long

The moral of the story?  In futures trading, there’s generally not much time to make a decision and execute.  Having all of your signals in sorted and organized one area will speed up the decision making process.

I’ve used dozens of different indicators over the years and the ones I’ve gotten from Affordable Indicators are by far my favorite. They’re reliable, they are not resource heavy and, when I have a question, the support is responsive and helpful. Highly recommended!
