KING - NinjaTrader indicators

The KING indicators for NinjaTrader 8 have been released on November 15th, 2022. The information below pertains to one of the previous version of NinjaTrader (6.5), but there is actually very little difference between the indicators for these two versions. The main reason for preserving this section is that it presents more screenshots featuring the indicators. There is also a new section, specifically for the NinjaTrader 8 indicators.

I think they are really cool and they demonstrate KING capabilities very well. Just check out this picture, a screenshot of NinjaTrader charts from April 6th, 2009, the day after. More pictures like that will be coming in here, so check out this section from time to time, if you are interested.

The green dots in this screenshot indicate the entries known affectionately as Pure Evil as they tend to deliver quite a punch, the yellow dots indicate the entries of supertrades, another class of KING trades, and the arrows point to basic KING entries of the perfect kind. The blue and red bars show the bars that are likely to trend (those without arrows are generated by the basic entry that is not perfect) and as you see there are pretty long sequences of such colored bars.

Long enough to convince everyone that KING is not yet another combination of random indicators bunched together for the sole purpose of selling a pig in a pocket to the unsuspected suckers out there. Not even close, because KING is the least expensive product of this class (probably a class in itself) on the market now.

These great indicators have been developed by X (who prefers to be totally unknown) from the UK, in a two month effort, a true international collaboration across the Big Pond. X is a power KING user, so you can be sure that they a very faithful representation of KING ideas. And if X thought KING was no good, he would have probably never bothered to develop them, right? So if people as talented as X use them, how come that you still don't?

I really wish you could see all the indicators in their full glory as this makes even more sense, but this is something only the owners of KING supermachine can admire. Lucky bastards, indeed!

Let me also add that you can improve things quite considerably using not only the indicators, but the complete KING knowledge that gives you the power to distinguish between better and not so good entries, the power to choose the best direction and the best entry and exit for a given situation, making you a consummate trader.

The power of a trading wizard. You want a magic wand with that? Well, you are the one to provide it. With your trading decisions.

What KING delivers is the true industrial strength to make Mr. Market regret he was ever born as opposed to, at the very best, some academic strength that the majority of products of this kind can barely muster. The latter strength is, obviously, for wimps. (I should know: I worked in both academia and industry.) And it is with these fabulous KING indicators for NinjaTrader that KING's strength is shown most brilliantly.

Please note that what you see in this screenshot has been accomplished with ordinary 1 minute bars and not with some newfangled range or volume bars tweaked to perfection. Not even with tick bars. Just with plain one minute bars. And frankly, if you have to use all these newfangled things, then I am afraid I have some bad news for you: perhaps your trading methods are just crappy. Have you thought of that?

Want some more shots? Well, below you can admire a few from the first week after the release. One from each trading day (it was a 4 day trading week because of Good Friday). And then 5 more from the week that followed it. They show KING's action in YM, the Dow emini futures, a very popular e-mini futures market.

YM Sample

4/06/09 - 4/07/09 - 4/08/09 - 4/09/09

4/13/09 - 4/14/09 - 4/15/09 - 4/16/09 - 4/17/09

1/10/11 - 1/11/11 - 1/12/11 - 1/13/11 - 1/14/11

And if you want to see how well it works in ES, the S&P 500 e-mini futures, the most popular emini futures market, check out the sample that follows.

ES Sample

4/27/09 - 4/28/09 - 4/29/09 - 4/30/09 - 5/01/09

5/10/10 - 5/11/10 - 5/12/10 - 5/13/10 - 5/14/10

5/24/10 - 5/25/10 - 5/26/10 - 5/27/10 - 5/28/10

7/19/10 - 7/20/10 - 7/21/10 - 7/22/10 - 7/23/10

Trust me, these are not necessarily the best shots that I could have chosen ... And keep in mind that KING was not even developed for the S&P 500 eminis, but for the Dow e-mini futures.

And here is another bunch from a week preceding the Christmas week of 2009. This time from NQ, the NASDAQ 100 e-mini futures, another very popular e-mini futures market.

NQ Sample

12/14/09 - 12/15/09 - 12/16/09 - 12/17/09 - 12/18/09

Those day trading e-mini markets via Interactive Brokers may find NQ a bit more to their liking because of lower margins compared to ES or YM.

And guess what? You can also day trade stocks with KING. As long as they are very liquid and have nice intraday ranges so that trading them is both easy and leads to respectable profits. If the stocks intraday range is 2-3 points on average, you can easily scalp them for 30-40 ticks. AAPL is a good example of such an instrument. GOOG, though less liquid, can also be considered. Below is the sample of KING's charts for AAPL from a shortened Memorial Day week.

AAPL Sample

6/01/10 - 6/02/10 - 6/03/10 - 6/04/10

It's probably not that hard to make money with KING ideas, as you might have guessed from these pictures, but then again, some people choose to keep waiting and waiting and waiting... for the holiest of Holy Grails. Which is like a Godot...

The NinjaTrader colored bars (red, blue) that you see featured in all the screenshots and some signals (yellow and green dots) that KING generates, also shown in the screenshots, are only a part of the story. There is also a bunch of indicators that you don't see in the screenshots that help you make more sophisticated trading decisions, but even if you were to judge KING by the color bars and the dots, you would have to admit that it's pretty much on the money. However, it is only with the indicators and the ways KING uses them that the whole power of KING is manifested. Of course, when you buy KING, you get to know the whole story.
