How to import & install templates of Reversal automated strategy

Below you will find detailed instructions on how to install a strategy in NinjaTrader 8, import ready-made trading templates and optimize a trading strategy for your market.

You can always ask for help with auto-trader simply by emailing us at support@mascapital.uk

1/ Download the installation file from your account page, or find the download link in the email you received after purchase

2/ Import installation .zip file by following:

NinjaTrader 8 Control Center —> Tools —> Import —> NinjaScript Add-on —> Select downloaded Reversal.zip file

3/ Send your machine ID to team@mascapital.uk (so we can issue the license for you based on your subscription plan). Machine ID can be found by following: 

NinjaTrader 8 Control Center —> Help —> About 

1/ Download the templates .zip file from your account page, or find the download link in the email you received after purchase

2/ Extract downloaded template files into:

C:\Users\*Your PC Name*\Documents\NinjaTrader 8\templates\Strategy

The final path with templates should look like:

C:\Users\*Your PC Name*\Documents\NinjaTrader 8\templates\Strategy\Reversal\template.xml

IMPORTANT: Do not import the .zip file with templates the same way you do with the strategy installer file (using the NT8 import tool), as it will not work. Put them directly into documents folder as described above.

3/ Restart NinjaTrader 8, or start it if it was off and check, if optimization template is showing under the Reversal strategy templates menu

If templates are not showing, do the following:

NinjaTrader 8 Control Center —> New —> NinjaScript Editor —> Compile

1/ Go to Strategy Analyzer tool, and select optimization mode with Reversal auto-trader by following:

NinjaTrader 8 Control Center —> New —> Strategy Analyzer

Select imported optimization template by following:

Template —> Load —> “Optimization” template  

2/ Go to Data Series section and select the instrument*bar type* and value* that you want to optimize the auto trader on

*instrument –  you can use any market (MNQ/NQ/ES/MES is our top picks)
*bar type – ONLY minute based bars
*value – 2 MIN+ bars (5 and 15 is our top picks)

3/ Go to Time Frame section and select optimization period (it should be at least 1 month)

4/ Go to Historical fill section and set it as follows:

Order fill resolution = High
Type = Second (or Tick)
Value = 1

4/ Go to Optimize section and select preferred optimization criteria for which you want to optimize the strategy (Max Net Profit – is the best option)

5/ Under the GO properties section you will find Generation size and Generations settings, by changing which you can affect the number of tests and their speed in order to get acceptable optimization results:

Generation size = ~200
Generations = ~150 is recommended 

6/ Run optimization. Once optimization is complete, select the result that shows the best performance and save the settings as a template that can be used later when adding the strategy to the chart test (or strategy tab section) 

 Template —> Save —> give it a name you can understand, for example: “Market – Bar Type – Timeframe – Performance

IMPORTANT:

* If you do not get a result that you are satisfied with, run the optimization process with the same settings at least twice. If after a double test, the result is still not enough, you can change the timeframe and market to get the best performance.

** Reversal auto-trader has a recommended bar type (time based candles) it is highly recommended to use only this type of bar.

*** Do not use very low timeframes, it will have a negative impact on the auto-trader and results.

**** We recommend you to test auto trader on a playback to confirm the result achieved with optimization.

1/ Add auto trader to the strategy tab by following:

NinjaTrader 8 Control Center–> Strategies tab –> Left Click –> New strategy… 

2/ Select the template you got from the step 2 and configure instrument*bar type* and value* to match the template

3/ Navigate Time Frame section and increase Days to load value to at least 30 days (or 500 bars) 

NOTE:

* You can also place the auto trader directly on the chart. Before adding it, make sure you have enough data on the chart (at least 500 bars or 30 days of data) and use the same principles described above.

Automated trader parameters description

You don’t need to understand all the values 100%, as all you need is the right combination of values for your particular market and timeframe. You can delegate this job to a Strategy Analyzer with Optimization mode. Read how to optimize auto-trader in our FAQ section above.

Also, you can request parameters template for your market and timeframe just by emailing us at support@mascapital.uk

ParameterDefault value

Quantity of Contracts [1-1000]

The number of contracts that the strategy will establish positions in upon executing a trade.

1

Risk/Reward Ratio [0.1-10.0]

Establishes the proportion of risk in relation to potential gain for each individual trade in order to set a specific profit objective. This ratio is calculated by comparing the amount of potential loss to the amount of potential profit for a given trade and is used to determine the level of risk that the strategy or system is willing to take in order to achieve a specific level of returns.

1.0

Daily Loss Limit [1-∞]

Specifies the maximum loss in monetary terms that the strategy or system is able to tolerate during one trading day, beyond which any further loss will trigger an action to exit the position.

-$99,999

Daily Target Limit [1-∞]

The Daily Target Limit refers to a preset limit on the amount of profit that a trading strategy aims to achieve during a single trading day. Once this limit is reached, the strategy will stop trading in the current day.

+$99,999

Max Risk (in Ticks) [1-∞]

The amount of risk a trading strategy is willing to take in terms of price movement. It is measured in ticks, which is the minimum increment of price movement for a financial instrument, and used to set a protective stop-loss level for the trade. This helps to control risk and limit potential losses by exiting the trade when the price moves beyond a certain level.

The strategy will not take a trade that is exceeding the stop size of this parameter in ticks.

500

 

ParameterDefault value

Move Entry Order [-100-100]

A value of -10 means that the entry order is located deeper inside the entry candle (below the signal for entry) by 10% of the candle’s size. While a value of +10 means that the strategy will be placing the entry order higher by 10% of the size of the entry candle from the entry signal

 +2

Increase/Decrease the Stop [-100-100]

A value of -10 means that the stop order is located deeper inside the entry candle by 10% of the candle’s size. While a value of +10 means that the strategy will be placing the stop order bigger by 10% of the size of the entry candle.

+1

Add Target Reached Area (in Ticks) [0-100]

Determines the distance to the target, in order to remove the entry order earlier, since the signal is no longer valid. This means that if the price is already close to the target, the limit order should be removed and the signal should be considered exhausted

By default, you should remove the order and forget about the signal if the price is within 2 (2 ticks) from the potential profit target.

2

 

ParameterDefault value

Only Trend Direction [True/False]

The strategy will look for trades only in the direction of the trend, rather than trying to predict or trade against the trend. Useful in a hard-trend time. 

True

Pivot Density [1-100]

Determines the number of bars to form a pivot (the higher the value, the more bars will be taken into account and the more significant reversals in the market will be considered signals, which means a smaller number of trades)

 5

Pivot Confirmation

The number of ticks that will be added to the pivot point to define it as a confirmed pivot

2

Signal Confirmation Period

Defines the limit of the number of bars, during which the pivot point must be confirmed (if it does not happen – the signal is no longer can be confirmed and the auto trader does not place an order)

Higher value = more time to confirm reversal = more trades (at high values, the accuracy of determining the true reversal decreases)

2

Keep Order Alive Period

Specifies the maximum number of bars to save a working order to enter the market after confirmation of the signal

A high value (>7) can increase the number of entries into the market, at the moment when the entry point is no longer relevant, and a low value (<2), can cut off numerous good entry points

2

  1. Gareth (verified owner)

    I gotta share my own experience with this reversal strategy, gotta be honest, it was kinda scary at first. Tried a few other automated systems from different providers, but honestly, they didn’t really deliver. Even though they were all like, “Yeah, it’s all green in history, works like a charm,” I had my doubts when testing the reversal strategy. But in the end, it actually did some good for a couple of my Apex accounts. Totally surprised me ’cause I’d been struggling to get ’em qualified for ages, just kept hitting that trail of losses. This strategy flipped the script, so it’s not an instant buy for me, but it’s lookin’ promising. Already got it set up on the PA account and so far, so good. Big thanks for 25% off on a lifetime deal. Got it.

  2. Carolyn (verified owner)

    Quite an interesting approach to using the strategy as it trades on multiple markets simultaneously, which to my surprise turned out to be quite effective. I hadn’t seen anything like it before. Also impressed with the service. Thanks to the team for the quick responses and assistance with any questions.

  3. Zaviyarsukhera (verified owner)

  4. K Bennett P&H LTD (verified owner)

    Thank you, the strategy has completely paid off. I am pleasantly surprised by the results it provides and glad that there are regular updates. Also, I thank the support team for being constantly in touch with me and solving all my problems. I would like to say that the approach to managing the strategy is simply excellent, I have never seen anything like it before. If anyone is interested, this strategy is used on several markets simultaneously, which allows for a bit of risk diversification. Surprisingly, this played a crucial role in my decision-making. Thank you.

  7. Philip Nurden (verified owner)

    god bless you

  8. SumChief (verified owner)

    Impressive performance overall. While it meets expectations, there’s room for minor improvements. Nonetheless, it’s a valuable addition to any toolkit. 4/5 stars.

  9. Neil Puckering JBS Ltd (verified owner)

    A mixed experience with the Reversal Strategy.
    Learning curve may be a challenge, but for those willing to invest the effort, it adds an exciting layer to trading. A balanced two-star rating reflecting both the challenges and rewards.

  10. Steve (verified owner)

    Excitedly waiting for the addition of trailing stop and break-even options to the Reversal Strategy. These enhancements could elevate an already effective strategy, offering users more control and flexibility in their trading approach. A promising four-star strategy that has the potential to become even more powerful.

  11. Simon ball (verified owner)

    Effective trading strategy but a challenging experience with customer support.

  12. Boilerman Ltd (verified owner)

    Positive: Fantastic customer service! Great tools and free indicators. Working strategy. Negative: Hard to use, lacks documentation.

  13. Paul Edwards (verified owner)

    An intriguing strategy, demanding substantial time for close monitoring.

  14. Nick E Mepham (verified owner)

    The Reversal Strategy, while performing exceptionally well, does have room for improvement. A focus on documentation is suggested to help users navigate the learning curve efficiently. The strategy is effective, but enhancing the learning experience can ensure users extract the maximum potential from it. A well-deserved three-star rating.

  15. MR CARR (verified owner)

    Excellent strategy for any market, but documentation could be improved, making it slightly challenging to use.

  16. Mr M Hopton (verified owner)

    Superb simplicity. Outstanding support team. A fantastic strategy suitable for diverse traders. Highly recommended!

  17. Poppy cat (verified owner)

    Bought right after your email with trading results. They’re impressive. So far, after a week, my results are lower than yours, but despite that I am satisfied. Thank you.

  18. Gary Miller (verified owner)

    Some of the templates you offer don’t function as expected. Specifically, some templates yield negative trades, which adversely impacts overall performance. While some templates are profitable and offset losses, it would be more beneficial if every trade resulted in a positive outcome, leading to improved results. Nevertheless, I appreciate the 40% account gain for the month.

  19. Mary Green (verified owner)

    Works.Strategy trades in the plus – is the positive part.
    On the negative side, the strategy requires a server that works 24/7, because I, for example, find it difficult to keep my computer on all the time.

  20. Paul Ross (verified owner)

    Is it just me, or is it better to take J Strategy? In a month of trading the strategy made many times less money than another strategy from your site. What is the point?

  21. Nicola (verified owner)

    Even though I don’t like algorithmic trading because of the difficulty of setting it up, your team has done a great job of offering pre-made templates for each market. Thanks for that.

  22. Julie Crouchman (verified owner)

    Works like a charm. Crude oil is my pick for this.

  23. Tony Osborne (verified owner)

    Utilizing the strategy has been a game-changer for me over the past few months. strategy, grounded in price action, sets apart from delayed indicators, leading to outstanding results. The inclusion of customizable templates has been a boon, allowing me to seamlessly adapt to the ever-changing market. Thank you.

  24. Mr Vernon (verified owner)

    My experience with the Reversal Auto thus far can be summarized as ‘not bad’. While it doesn’t fully meet my initial performance expectations, it doesn’t fall into the realm of disappointment either. I’m in the process of evaluating its long-term worthiness of investment.

  25. Helen T N (verified owner)

    Promising Strategy, Requires Dedication to Master.
    However, the payoff in terms of improved trading performance and accuracy can be well worth the initial learning investment

  26. Sheetal Pathak (verified owner)

    Please activate my license! Thank you!

  27. Mr D. Millhouse (verified owner)

    Thank you for the valuable experience of using this strategy for a month. However, due to the lack of documentation, it has become excessively complex to implement. Opting for a managed option would be a more accessible choice for those who prefer not to delve deeply into this auto-trading endeavor.

  28. Joanne (verified owner)

    the strategy does not work as well as the same indicator (reversal indicator) probably because the strategy does not understand the current market situation.
    Using the indicator, you can filter out periods when it is better not to trade and skip a trade.

  29. Beth Davies (verified owner)

    Doesn’t work as well as it can with the pre-made templates the developer provides. I recommend anyone who buys it to try working with tick chart. For me it gives a result much better than the minute chart.

  30. Fitness Harrogate (verified owner)

    Positive: The strategy is performing exceptionally well and meeting expectations.

    Negative: However, it lacks a trailing stop and break-even feature. I strongly recommend prioritizing the addition of these functionalities. This adjustment has the potential to significantly enhance the strategy’s performance, even though it’s already quite effective. Thank you.

  31. Jeff Duffield (verified owner)

    Team, I’d like to propose a focus on documentation. The strategy itself is excellent, but there’s a learning curve involved. This will help users get the most out of it.

  32. Ron Hanson (verified owner)

    Waiting for you guys to add trailing stop and BE option. It will improve the strategy even more!

  33. Alex Fitzpatrick (verified owner)

    Ty for the trial. Let’s see how the first month will go after the purchase.

  34. Jan Swietlik (verified owner)

    While the notion of spotting market reversals intrigued me, I became doubtful about its execution. While I value the concept, it required more time and effort than I could commit, especially with the uncertain outcomes involved.

  35. Tarquin (verified owner)

    Intriguing Reversal Strategy. Merging my tech-art perspective, it’s like decoding market patterns. Demands attention but resonates with my analytical mindset. Exciting addition to my routine. – Tarquin Holloway

  36. Chrissie Jorgensen (verified owner)

    This trading strategy is rather intriguing, but it demands a substantial amount of time to monitor closely.

  37. Richard Warrier (verified owner)

    Positive:
    Fantastic customer service! Great tools and free indicators. Working strategy that trades well

    Negative:
    Strategy is a bit hard to use. Not well documented in my opinion

  38. Alan (verified owner)

    it is a great trading strategy as long as you don’t have to talk to customer support.

  39. Jo Fish (verified owner)

    Excellent strategy for any market! But luck of documentation makes it a bit hard to use

  40. John Manley (verified owner)

    Super simple to understand, a great support team to learn from and help always available. These strategy is fantastic for different types of traders, highly recommend!

  41. Josh Houghton (verified owner)

    I never would have found out there was such an auto strategy if it wasn’t in your email. Subscribed for a month, let’s see what will come out, so far it looks promising

  42. Idzi Czerwinski (verified owner)

    shows good results, thank you. For now for 1 month, I will for sure expand it when I get a profit

  43. Jake Hardy (verified owner)

    Thank you for the invitation to the closed strategy test. Put it to work right away.
