Example Charts

All of our available paid indicators are distributed in one package.
This package also includes a chart template (“PA_Indicators_ES_5min”) .
After installing the indicator package into NinjaTrader, that chart template can be
used to show a possible setup of the indicators for the ES E-mini 5 minute RTH chart.

Look for confluence

Confluence is very important in trading and means to have several (at least two) reasons to take a trade. Your 1st reason is the Tick Failure Breakout and your 2nd reason can be e.g. Support / Resistance, measured moves, trend line / trend channel line overshoot, Buying/Selling Pressure, a 2nd attempt to reverse and many more.

Automated Trading

Only the NinjaTrader 8 version of the S/R Breakout Failure Tick indicator is compatible with BloodHound from SharkIndicators. You can call it as well from your own NinjaTrader indicators or strategies.

What are the settings?

The settings probably need to be tweaked especially to the “personality” and time frame of the instrument you’re trading.
If you trade the MES, load the indicator on the ES chart (the volume is much larger) and take the trades on the MES with the price from the ES contract. Sometimes the MES overshoots though.
