Trading Platform
NinjaTrader 8 - (8.0.18.1 64-bit)

My Monitor Setup
I have three monitors that I use during trading. The first monitor (positioned in the middle) I will refer to as monitor 1. I am looking at this about 90% of the time. This is the chart that is displayed in the trading room showing the BTS indicator/strategy. I also have the cumulative delta and volume up/down displayed on this monitor.


My second monitor (positioned left) I will refer to as monitor 2. This displays my volume profile and my ^TICK chart


My third monitor (positioned right) I will refer to as monitor 3. This displays two SuperDOMs. The first I use for regular BTS trades and the second for BTS break trades. This monitor also has the NT8 home screen and a chart that I use for local testing if required.

Remember to unzip...this isn't a NinjaScript file!

Monitor 2 - Chart 1 - Volume Profile [3 tabs]
For my Volume Profile indicator I currently use the Range Volume Profile indicator from Disco Trading. I have a chart with 3 tabs, each of which have a slightly different Volume Profile configuration. Just recently however, NinjaTrader have put together their own Volume Profile offering for lifetime license holders as part of their Order Flow Suite. Whilst the current NinjaTrader offering falls a little short of what Disco Trading provide, they will be improving it with every release. 

There are many settings and features available for volume profile. What I find useful however are the following; VWAP, VWAP Standard Deviations, Session Profile, Composite Profile, Value Area, VPOC, Developing VPOC. Extending into future sessions I like to see; Naked VWAP and Naked VPOC.


If you also own the Range Profile indicator from Disco Trading, I can send you the chart templates for each of the following tabs. Just note that if you want to take advantage of splitting the volume profiles between ETH + RTH you will need to modify your session template as per the screen shot below.

Trading Setup for NT8

Monitor 3 - SuperDOM, NinjaTrader Home Screen and Test Chart

On monitor 3 I have 2 SuperDOMs. SuperDOM 1 has my ATM set for regular BTS trades. SuperDOM 2 has my ATM set for BTS Break trades. I have separated the 2 types of BTS trade onto individual DOMs to allow myself much simpler trade management.


The NinjaTrader home screen is also located here as well as a test chart. I use this to test out ideas that I have been working on and/or it allows me to show another futures market if required, although the new Market Watch has probably superseded that.
