Introduction

The CIT (Change In Trend) Indicators collection for NinjaTrader is a complete technical analysis package, designed to assist with key aspects of the trading, investing, hedging and forecasting process. The CIT Indicators selection is based on their efficiency and ability to solve specific, critical tasks. By focusing on a few select indicators, users can avoid analysis paralysis and the need to monitor a myriad of different indicators often giving contradictory or ambiguous signals. 

The value added of CIT Indicators is their ease of use and interpretation, and their ability to answer the most pertinent questions: does a trend exist, and is it likely to continue or end; is momentum accelerating or decelerating; is the risk of whipsaw high or low; when is the appropriate time to enter and exit a trade, and what is the risk/reward profile of the trade being considered, etc.

CIT Indicators excel at defining precise time and price targets, and at identifying the beginning and end of swings and waves of different duration. They offer the opportunity to capture the maximum upside/downside price motion for the selected trading time frame. In addition, most CIT Indicators have built in trigger lines, which show on the chart where exactly a CIT Indicator signal was triggered, thus allowing users to quickly assess their accuracy, timeliness and profitability.

The CIT Indicators introduce original ideas, and offer improvements or new approaches for utilizing classic TA tools. They are designed to work seamlessly with each other or any other TA tool, and to provide users with a complete technical analysis overview for any instrument in any time frame. The ability to combine indicators inspired by the best ideas of Hurst, Gann, and CIT Analytics into one chart, allows users to achieve synergies which were not achievable until now. 

Most indicators in the package include trigger or signal lines, which link indicator signals directly with price action. This serves to avoid any ambiguity as to when and at what price level a particular indicator signal was triggered. In addition, many of the indicators include multiple settings allowing deeper user customization. Users are strongly encouraged to explore the different options. Within the description of the indicators we've included some ideas on how to pair them, but users who experiment with different combinations on their own can achieve even better results. The ability to customize and combine the indicators provides versatility to accommodate any trading style, from swing and volatility trading to trend following. 

Although CIT Indicators can accommodate the needs of a wide variety of trading and investment professionals, they were primarily developed by traders for traders. Highly customizable, they can accommodate any trading style.

Risk Disclosure

Futures and forex trading contains substantial risk and is not for every investor. An investor could potentially lose all or more than the initial investment. Risk capital is money that can be lost without jeopardizing ones’ financial security or life style. Only risk capital should be used for trading and only those with sufficient risk capital should consider trading. Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results.

Hypothetical Performance Disclosure

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 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 of 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 which can adversely affect trading results.
