Hello guys.. Please I would like to ask something.. I have been trading currency since I started learning forex and I have come to understand risk management with it.. I have been having issues migrating to indices. I'm not exactly sure how to calculate risk.. And what lots sizes to use.. It's quite easy on currency as there are calculators to quickly tell you. Do anyone know any such calculator for indices to calculate risk? Thanks

it really is difficult to do the calculations and there is no tool on the internet to help .... i can find out through trial and error on a demo account. open a demo account with your broker, preferably with the amount you will trade in the real, and keep opening orders with different lots until you find out how to manage your risk correctly. also remembering that the value of pop is different between assets.

provide ao indicator 2 i have diffrent look
The point of this tpl was exactly that you don't need any extra indies
because it is based on the MT4-standard indies.
So, if you installed your MT-4 correctly and have all the standard indies in your indicator folder it should run nicely without any additional work.
If you have problems with this tpl then you may have a non-standard MT-4.
It is so simple that it is not worth sharing.
If you really need a simplified Xard + indies you can take this one:
viewtopic.php?p=1295429192#p1295429192
But don't use the tpl. Only put the indies in the indicator folder, restart MT-4, and pull them - one after the other - on your chart.

I found such indi (from trusted website I know for years) and it works fine as far as I checked it today on indices and Gold. Put it to indi folder and then on your chart. In indi settings, put Fixed Fraction and then you can enter your desired risk % to Lot Percent. Then you can move the lines of SL and OP and TP and indi will show you info about your lot size.

My latest pet project

I am going to take the stand off my 65" LG Monitor, turn it 90 degrees so that it is in portrait mode and mount it on the wall with my sound bar also mounted on the wall below the TV and just above my desk.

This gives me all my desk space back (woohoo) and with the screen in portrait mode I can run three versions of MT4 with each version running just one 15m chart.

The idea is that i would display WS30, US500, and US2000 on 15m charts and as there is only one chart per MT4 version then there is absolutely no lag whatsoever (not that I have any lag - tried it with two versions of MT4 in landscape mode and it worked a treat - ergo, the Eureka moment).

I will of course be running all 3 MT4 versions on my 4gb Ram Drive (which already runs sweet) and as it is in portrait mode then the three charts will display just perfect - can't wait :-)

I have ordered up the wall bracket along with a large wooden board. i will fit the board to the studs and the wall bracket to the board - Duh!
Should be fun, will no doubt let you know how I get on.

NB Forgot to mention that the cool thing about running separate MT4's for each chart means that the Pip$ figures will display correctly.

Hi Dondbaze, I am a forex trader as well. I've been trading indices as well as gold and crude oil. I work on the D1 timeframe and I'm a NNFX trader. To help me open trades on lower TF like the M15 and H1 with the XARD System I use a tool created from one of the coders of the NNFX community. The EA opens trades with sl/tp using the NNFX MM rules based on the ATR. It opens 2 positions but you can change this in the variables of the EA if you want. There are a lot of settings that you can change: for example you can choose the multiplier of the ATR number for sl and tp and ts; you can easily choose which percentage to use on every trade. If you only need to open 1 trade without to use the tp based on the ATR I'm pretty sure that by changing the variables you can do it, but you will always have to use the sl based on the ATR. If you search on Google "firewight", you will find a website called "firewight | Advanced Trading Tools", its the website where you can download it. The EA does expire because it has updates every few months. It's completely free and it works really good. REMEMBER to read the website before using the EA, because it will explain to you everything you need to know about it.

It really works good for me so I just wanted to share with you and this community something that I consider good for MM purposes.

Have a good weekend!
