Hi Guys!

When will Bloodhound:

1. Be compatible with Tick Replay?
2. Perform parameter Optimization?

Thanks!

Hi Guys!
When will Bloodhound:
1. Be compatible with Tick Replay?
2. Perform parameter Optimization?
Thanks!

Oh yes, the million dollar questions

#1 The latest release (8.1.14.18) supports a first draft for Tick Replay (T/R), but there are a few things we want to work a little easier before we officially announce it. e.g. In order to get a T/R indicator (a guest indicator) to load T/R data you need to select the solver(s) that references a T/R indicator and open BH's Select Indicator window to force the T/R indicator to load T/R data. Pressing F5 on the chart is not currently forcing the T/R indicators to load T/R data, and that is how we would like it to work. And, before anyone asks... there is no ETA on when that will be.

#2 Just for clarification for those who don't know, BloodHound is an indicator, and indicators can not be run in the Optimizer. As for Raven and BlackBird (strategies) running BH templates, the proper answer is NT needs to support dynamically changing property grids. e.g. The MACD will only have 3 input properties, Fast, Slow, and Smooth periods. The MACD will never have a 4th or 5th input period. If it ever does, it will not be the MACD any more, it will be a new indicator with a different name. Currently, NT is designed to support "standard" indicators which have fix/unchanging input properties. As for BH, the indicators you decide to use within it change all the time, and thus Ninja's property grid would need to change all the time to accommodate all the different indicators and their different input properties being used inside any given BH system. It has been mentioned from time to time in the workshops that Jeremy has some ideas for a possible work-around to NT's static property grid, but it is just an idea not a known solution. I'd like to reiterate again, as I've done in the workshops, testing this work-around idea will be very time consuming and thus the risk is very high that all that time spent (about 9 months or more) becomes a huge waist of time if it doesn't work out. Later this summer and in the next year to come, we have several new features for BH and BB (BlackBird) that we know don't run the risk of being wasted time, and those features will always have priority over optimization. As much as we would love to have Raven & BB optimizer compatible, because it would make BH a much stronger product of course, I just don't want to get your hopes up.
Thanks,
Zac

BloodHound for signals, and BlackBird for trade management.

Hi Zac!

I just want to be sure...:

Am I able to use BlackBird (without Blackhound) to fully automatize Trade Signal plots with indicators i.e. from Lizardtrader (Harry) like the "AuctionBars"?

If so, is the BlackBird able to stop trading for the day after a certain target or loss is reached?

Thanks, greetings from Germany and stay healthy.

Oli

Yes, absolutely. BlackBird (BB) is built to read trade signal plots or Series<T> from other 3rd party vendors.

I can't speak to each indicator out there, or guarantee someone else's indicator. To put it very simply, SharkIndicators can not guarantee someone else work, even companies listed on our Vendors site, although we do work closely with those companies to make sure their indicator work correctly. What I can say is, as long as that indicator has a "trade signal" plot or Series<T> then it should work fine. Typically, programmers will use a +1 value to indicate a buy signal, a -1 value for a sell, and zero for no signal. For more technical info the documentation can be found here... https://www.sharkindicators.com/documentation/blackbird/order-settings/trade-signals/
Harry is a great programmer, so I image that is what he did.

Yes, the Money Management options can handle that very easily. Take a look at the Net Max Profit and Net Max Loss options... https://www.sharkindicators.com/documentation/blackbird/order-settings/management-buttons/

As a side note, you can even specify specific times of day when BB is allowed to trade using the Scheduling menu. Most indicators give signals 24/6, but most trades don't have the margin or don't want to trade after hours... https://www.sharkindicators.com/documentation/blackbird/order-settings/management-buttons/

BloodHound for signals, and BlackBird for trade management.

Hi!

BB:

Is it possible to backtest automated strategies which I configured with BB in the strategy analyzer of NT?
I mean without having BH and Raven?

Thanks!

BlackBird is a trade manager. Without a signal source there is no "automated strategies". As with all custom coded strategies, internally there is indicator type code that calculates the trade signals. That is why BB has a trade Signal section, so that you can plug-in whatever signal source you want. Either BloodHound or a 3rd party/custom indicator. BB is designed to be as modular as possible.
If you don't want to use BloodHound for the trade signal source, then you can create your own custom indicators to provide signals to BB, and yes, then you have an automated strategy to backtest in Ninja's S/A.

BloodHound for signals, and BlackBird for trade management.
