    First plot done.....took way too long but doneish. Something doesnt seem right, I didnt expect such a peak at and around zero.

    Will have a look this afternoon.

    Range was simply "settle - open". I had to think about this for a while actually, couldnt decide if I should use "settle - open" or "high - low"

    If anyone actually cares I can find a better way to share, but I expect not so ill just snip haha

    If you want to truly analyse the markets you're heading in the right direction.

    AB is great for it's intended purpose, which was to create a graphing / backtesting program. For in depth analysis there are better tools.

    ML is not the only use. The time series problem can be negated easier python by analysing performance over time for your theorems and choosing ones that behave consistantly over time.

    Backtesting 1 million strategies at once. This might seem like overkill, but AB's optimize function lets you fine tune ( curve fit ) for variables. Python can take that next level and allow you to curve fit formulas as well as variables.

    But yeah, it's a long road.

    I have spent more time setting up my new study than actually doing anything productive in the past month.

    This may be a case of getting all the goodies has made me less productive or I have reached an inflection point where productivity will soar???

    Didn't want to start a new thread as I am not sure I have much to say, just random stuff I stumble across, so this seems as good a place as any.

    So, not commenting on the investment quality of these companies as I have no idea, but damn the ASX options list is full of boring uninteresting companies.

    When trading the MHI don't use that data. Its locked with the HSI and that is where the signals and movement comes from. So chart the HSI, execute on the MHI.

    But its a very good contract to learn on. Just like trading the big boy but 1/5 the dollar amount. Good idea. :xyxthumbs

    MHI, yeah I will be posting charts and trades but this is sometime away

    Will keep that in mind cheers.

    Goals or dreams haha?

    My immediate goals are to get NT setup, find a data feed, learn NT and some basic coding. Post up what ever I find.

    Dreams, quit work and trade full time:D For me that would require about $100k/year

    IB was easy, dump some money into an account fire up TWS and away I went. This data stuff is already doing my head in. Reading reviews about stuff I have no idea about yet, esignal might be the way to go so far

    Honestly, IB is good enough to trade the HSI or MHI. It's not ideal to match with NT, BUT if your on a budget it will do....I think Macquarie Bank has a futures broker with HKFE data....

    I lived in 3 states, got married and changed career in 2015, everything is on a budget this year haha

    If I can get away with using IB that would be ideal.

    My wish is to be able to play a days trading after I get off work at a fast play back speed, play around with all the add ons NT has like Market Profile, and to be able to run simple historical tests similar to what TH has posted before.

    Best of luck Fiftyeight. Hope you can get your roster sorted out ok.

    First time I've logged in for a while, good to see you're still pushing ahead while some of us remain broken down on the side of the road. I hope this thread reads of a succuessful journey in the months/years to come. :xyxthumbs

    Working but mainly laptop issues have made progress slower than I'd like. Considering switching to MAC but using parallels (not even sure what that is) to run NT does not excite me. Other current option is the Acer S7
