The CFTC requires the following disclosure statement in reference to hypothetical results.

Please read and acknowledge this risk disclosure to proceeding. The risk of loss in trading commodity futures
contracts can be substantial. You should therefore carefully consider whether such trading is suitable for you in
light of your financial condition. You may sustain a total loss of the initial margin funds and any additional funds
that you deposit with your broker to establish or maintain a position in the commodity futures market.

THE PERFORMANCE TABLES AND RESULTS OF THE TRADING SYSTEMS PRESENTED ARE HYPOTHETICAL IN
NATURE AND DOES NOT REPRESENT ACTUAL TRADING RESULTS.

Required Warning!

Hypothetical or simulated performance results have certain inherent limitations. Unlike an actual performance
record, simulated results do not represent actual trading. Also, since the trades have not actually been
executed, the results may have under- or over-compensated for the impact, if any, of certain market factors,
such as lack of liquidity. Simulated trading programs in general are also subject to the fact that they are
designed with the benefit of hindsight. No representation is being made that any account will or is likely to
achieve profits or losses similar to those shown.

HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS HAVE MANY INHERENT LIMITATIONS, SOME OF WHICH ARE DESCRIBED
BELOW. NO REPRESENTATION IS BEING MADE THAT ANY ACCOUNT WILL OR IS LIKELY TO ACHIEVE PROFITS OR
LOSSES SIMILAR TO THOSE SHOWN. IN FACT, THERE ARE FREQUENTLY SHARP DIFFERENCES BETWEEN

2
HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS AND THE ACTUAL RESULTS SUBSEQUENTLY ACHIEVED BY ANY
PARTICULAR TRADING PROGRAM.

ONE OF THE LIMITATIONS OF HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS IS THAT THEY ARE GENERALLY PREPARED
WITH THE BENEFIT OF HINDSIGHT. IN ADDITION, HYPOTHETICAL TRADING DOES NOT INVOLVE FINANCIAL RISK,
AND NO HYPOTHETICAL TRADING RECORD CAN COMPLETELY ACCOUNT FOR THE IMPACT OF FINANCIAL RISK IN
ACTUAL TRADING. FOR EXAMPLE, THE ABILITY TO WITHSTAND LOSSES OR TO ADHERE TO A PARTICULAR
TRADING PROGRAM IN SPITE OF TRADING LOSSES ARE MATERIAL POINTS WHICH CAN ALSO ADVERSELY AFFECT
ACTUAL TRADING RESULTS. THERE ARE NUMEROUS OTHER FACTORS RELATED TO THE MARKETS IN GENERAL OR
TO THE IMPLEMENTATION OF ANY SPECIFIC TRADING PROGRAM WHICH CANNOT BE FULLY ACCOUNTED FOR IN
THE PREPARATION OF HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS AND ALL OF WHICH CAN ADVERSELY AFFECT
ACTUAL TRADING RESULTS.

least 10 days for smaller timeframes, 30 days for midrange timeframes and 90 for higher timeframes.

16
Ninja Crashes every time I try to open it.

This is usually from a corrupted workspace that causes Ninja Trader to crash when I launch the
platform. You will need to keep this workspace from automatically launching when Ninja Trader is
launched. To do this:

Upon launching Ninja Trader, the platform opens all workspaces that were left open when it was
last shut down. If you need to stop a workspace from automatically launching, go to Documents>Ninja
Trader 7>Workspaces and delete the “_Workspaces.xml” file there. This will result in Ninja Trader
launching only a single untitled workspace the next time that it is launched.

Ninja did not automatically connect to the data when I launched the platform. I receive the following
message when I try to connect to my data manually. “LOGIN FAILED; UNSPECIFIED LOGIN ERROR”

It is likely that your free trial to the data has expired. You can sign up for a new Username and Password
for your trial here https://ninjatrader.com/

If you need to CLEAN YOUR DATA Watch this video https://www.screencast.com/t/ggWPjaSL6

I am connected to the data in the Ninja Control Center, however, my data is not moving.

First, you will want to make sure that the chart that you are viewing is set to pull data for the
correct and current instrument and that instrument is not expired. You can check to see which
instrument is loaded to the chart by looking in the top left corner. Once you have verified that the
correct instrument is in place, then you may wish to repair the database and reset the instruments
within Ninja. To do this, disconnect from the data and go to Tools>Options>Data>Reset DB>Repair
DB>Reset Instruments>Close and Reopen Ninja.

17
I have upgraded the hardware in my computer and now my Nexgen software will not plot.

When certain pieces of hardware in the computer are changed, the authentication server will
not recognize the computer. To protect itself, the software will not be granted authentication to plot.
In order to get the software running again, the Nexgen DLL will need to be refreshed. You may do this
yourself with your " PERSONAL NAME machine 1 T3setup.exe " file by double clicking on it with Ninja
Trader closed. Or if you still have trouble please contact Tech Support and we will get your software up
and running for you again.

I will be travelling and would like to install software to my laptop.

Depending how many machine licenses you have purchased you may load this computer with your
software. If you wish to add a new license you may purchase that at any time by visiting the website.

Where can I find the latest updates to the Nexgen Software.

All software updates are posted to the Resources page of the Nexgen website.

INDICATOR DESCRIPTION SECTION

Fibonacci Support and Resistance that is a combination of 10 timeframes of 4 different types of


Fibonacci Projections and Retracements. For YouTube video description please visit our site

19
Synthetic Fibonacci Support and Resistance that Support and Resistance Generated on one chart that is
placed on a smaller chart. One of our two main setups is buying or selling at Multiple Time Frame
Fibonacci areas which include more than one Red or Blue Fibonacci area.

You will notice on the chart below there are 3 red Fibonacci lines on the Range Bar chart on the right.

20
T3 Trigger Lines - Small triggers is what we call them and they are moving averages generated using a
linear regression calculations. Nexgen's setups are timed by a close of a bar above or below the small
trigger lines.

21
T-3 Synthetic Trigger Lines

This indicator is the " SAME " as our T3 Trigger Lines , the difference in this indicator is that it has the
ability to plot a " higher timeframe" or " larger chart's" small trigger lines ( left chart ) super imposed on
a smaller timeframe chart ( right chart below ) . Nexgen uses this indicator for TREND recognition and
for many of its trading setups. The values of the indicator are identical on both charts.

22
Nexgen Dynamic Renko Bar Type - this custom bar type allows us to choose any size chart we wish to
display and to be able to alter the OPEN and REVERSAL size of the bar to " smooth " price data

23
To Change Bar Size - You may wish to change the bar size. To do this click the data series icon , or right
mouse click on your chart and select data series. Note: the larger the bar size ( typically best practice is a
3-1 , 4-1 or 5-1 Ratio ) for example 5-1 , 10-2 , 20-4 or 12-3 , 24-6 ratios are commonly used.

24
Trend Bands and Moving Average Use

Nexgen will use a 55 period moving average or 165 period moving average for support and resistance ,
these areas will be used in " Trend Trades " The upper and lower bands are deviations of the 55 period
moving average and can be support or resistance.

25
T-3 Fib2Fib Oscillator

This proprietary oscillator will help to define trend, , define divergences as well as generate buy and sell
areas for trade setups.

The key is to watch for the 75 or 25 lines at entry spots. If you have a Sharp Point at 75 or 25 or at 100 or
zero then you have a potential turning point. At key Fibonacci/Trigger line areas the following patterns
will help your position.

26
27
28
29
T-3 Dvg Potential ( divergence potential)

T3 Dvg Potential will measure the swing retracements and plot divergences between the retracement %
price versus the T3 Macd BB lines ( older indicator not used lately)
https://www.screencast.com/t/zdF4y7nFXq

Use it as prior highs or lows for exit or entry help to easily see key pivot highs and lows
https://www.screencast.com/t/SlGevNfSMey

The following example is a “pivot stop out” for a trend trade spot for entry
https://www.screencast.com/t/IODqxJUjhV9W

Here is another example of using the “pivot stop out” for an entry
https://www.screencast.com/t/VysVTKmCOMzm

When all of your charts have divergence as indicated by the “(-) Negative #” which means there is a
divergence at the pivot, trend trades become less likely to win if the areas are not VERY strong.
