CHART TEMPLATES

BEST PRACTICE REMINDER - Listen for, and look for, Conclusionary Order Flow on larger size range bar charts while deploying Sceetos on smaller size range bar charts.

This will allow you to identify strong conlusionary on the larger charts while pouncing on the smaller range bar charts once new fuel is identified in the order book.

Your Sceeto will identify this new fuel in real-time and will immediately pounce.

During the Bots insallation process, the following chart templates where installed on your computer:
 
  • 2 Tick Bots with Ludwig Levels - No Alerts
  • Range Bar Bots with Ludwig Levels - No Alerts
  • ES 5 Tick Range Bar Bots with Ludwig Levels
  • Range Bar - Sceeto for Bots - Baseline - No Audio Alerts
  • NQ 8 Tick Range Bar Bots - Baseline - With Audio Alerts
  • GC 6 Tick Range Bar Bots - Baseline - With Audio Alerts
  • CL 6 Tick Range Bar Bots - Baseline - With Audio Alerts
  • ES 3 Tick Range Bar Bots - Baseline - With Audio Alerts


You can apply these templates to your chart by right-clicking on a chart, from the menu, select, Templates > Load.

If you use the templates that have Baseline - With Audio Alerts in the name and want to use them on different size range bars, you can update the alert thresholds for Book PRessure and Sweep by looking at the Book Pressure and Sweep value outliers and adjust the thresholds accordingly.

For instance if you are using an 8 tick ES chart, you should be able to visualize spikes in both Sweep and Book Pressure.

Use a value in the range of these spikes as the threshold value.
 

CONFIGURING AUDIO ALERTS - SUPER IMPORTANT


A key part of trading by deploying Bots aka Sceetos (Self-Contained-Electronic-Exchange-Trading-Orbs) is using auido alerts, based on specific order flow events, which give the trader a 'head's up' that the time may be ripe to deploy a Bot.

The following graphic explains this workflow:

 

This video wa;lks you throught the steps of downloading and extracting the alert files:


 

Download the .zip file and extract the contents to:

C:\Program Files (x86)\NinjaTrader 8\sounds

The following order flow indicators have embedded audio alert capabilities:

  • Book Pressure
  • Sweep
  • Tape Meter's 2 Standard Deviation Tick Ratio

When configuring these audio alerts you must place the full path file and file name into the indicators properties' "Alert File" field, for instance:Book PressureC:\Program Files (x86)\NinjaTrader 8\sounds\ES Order Book Pressure.wav

For Book Pressure, you must set a minimum threshold.  This is best done by eyeballing Book Pressure spikes on the chart that you are trading and using a value that would include the spikes but not heavy pressure.



SweepC:/Program Files (x86)/NinjaTrader 8/sounds/ES Sweep.wav

For Sweep, you must set a minimum threshold.

This is best done by eyeballing Book Pressure spikes on the chart that you are trading and using a value that would include the spikes but not heavy pressure.

Order Flow .WAV files have been created for ES, CL, GC, NQ.

You can copy the text in this table below in bold and enter it into your indicator's alert parameter field:

If you would like to make your own custom .WAV files you can use the following 2 sites to make custom audio alerts for Sierra Chart and SceetoBots.

The first site uses IBM's Watson to create audio files using a text to speach engine.  Once you type in your text, you can download a .mp3 file.

The second site converts the mp3 file that you created into a .wav file.

Audio alerts are available for download here:

The alerts included in the zip file that you can download at the bottom of this post are for CL, ES, GC, NQ, and 6E.
