Please note, if you have a D on your chart as shown above, you have delayed data and all your signals will be delayed by 10 minutes. You will need to subscribe to real time data feed. Instructions can be found here: https://newcycletrading.com/get-started
We recommend adding and favoriting the following indicators to your chart in this order to take full advantage of the Aurora System:
On the Indicators, Metrics & Strategies popup window, click Invite-Only Scripts. There you will see a list of the indicators you are currently subscribed to. All indicators, with the exception of the NCTA Divergent Bars + Fractals, require a valid subscription with us.
Clicking on the indicator name will apply it to your chart. Click once on each indicator name you want to apply to your chart.
To add an indicator to your favorites, hover over the indicator word with your mouse. Click the star that appears on the left. This will add the indicator to your list of favorites.
Once you are done adding the indicators to your chart and favoriting them, close out of the Indicators, Metrics & Strategies window.
On the same Indicators, Metrics, and Strategies window, click "Technicals". Scroll down and click the indicator you would like to add, such as Volume and Awesome Oscillator.
You can also add from this window Williams Alligator, Bollinger Bands, or any other indicators you want.
As a subscriber to the Aurora System, we recommend using the dark color theme shown here.
To change to the dark color theme, click on the 3 horizontal lines on the top left hand corner of your chart, and choose "dark color theme".
You will need to change the mode to CXA for the lowest Aurora System indicator on your chart. This can be done in the indicator settings.
To bring up the indicator settings, click the data window icon on the right hand side of the page. this will bring up a list of indicators on your chart. Right click on the bottom most Aurora System name in that list. This will bring up a small menu, click "Settings". This will then display a popup of the Aurora System Settings. Under "Inputs", click the drop down menu next to "Mode" and choose "CXA." Click "OK" to save and exit the settings.
The settings for each indicator will be different. In the Aurora System settings, you are able to change the mode of the indicator (PBA or CXA), the color of the indicator, whether to show the entry and exit signals, and how much time you want to be alerted before the start of the next bar (requires the Next Bar alert to be set as well).
The Aurora System includes AES.
Any of these settings can be changed. We recommend unchecking "Large Bar Highlight" for the initial chart setup. The option will be turned back on in step 21.
An explanation for each AES setting can be found in the AES training video on the Aurora Education page. https://newcycletrading.com/aurora-education
Move the Volume indicator to a new pane by right clicking on one of the volume bars on the bottom of the price bar chart and choosing Move To -> New Pane Below. This moves the Volume indicator below the price bar window.
Put your cursor on the right part of the new Volume indicator pane. You will see a series of icons appear on the right-hand side of the chart with an arrow pointing up, arrow pointing down, an x, and a bracket. Click the down arrow that appears to move the Volume indicator down one pane below PFA.
To create multiple chart layouts, click the square icon next to the name of your chart. We recommend having 3 side by side charts for the Aurora System.
This should be done after you have added all your indicators to the first chart. Doing so will then duplicate your chart for the multiple chart layouts.
In the future if you make any changes to one of the charts, such as adding an indicator, you can right click on the chart you added the new indicator to and choose “Apply these Indicators to Entire Layout”.
A TradingView Pro subscription is limited to 2 side by side charts, Pro + is limited to 4 side by side charts.
Choose what to synchronize between chart layouts. Using the same menu as in the last step, choose at the bottom what you would like to sync on those charts. If it is highlighted blue, it will be synced on all charts of the layout simultaneously.
To show the Aurora System 3min/5min/10min setup on NQ, you would sync (highlight blue) Symbol and un-sync (no highlight) Interval. The remaining categories are up to you whether you want them synced.
To change the symbol for a selected chart in the layout, click on the chart you want to change and start typing the symbol name.
For example, to change to the next contract for NQ, select the chart you want to change. Start typing NQ. As you are typing a window will pop up and you can manually click through the window to find the desired symbol or just finish typing the full symbol name and hit enter.
As long as Symbol is synced on all charts (Step 11). This action will change the symbol for all charts in the layout.
To change the time frame for a selected chart in the layout, click the chart that you want to change and start typing the desired time frame.
For the Aurora System setup, click the left most chart, type "3" and hit enter. This will change the left chart to a 3 min chart. Click on the middle chart, type "5" and hit enter. This will change the middle chart to a 5 min chart. Click on the right chart, type "10" and hit enter. This will change the chart on the right to a 10 min chart.
You can also click on the current time frame on the top left header of the chart to see a drop down menu of available time frames to choose from. Clicking the star on any of those time frames will favorite the time frame and all favorited time frames will show up on the header.
You can add custom time frames to the TradingView drop down menu. Trading view does not have a 10 min time frame as a default option on the drop down menu. To add the 10 minute, scroll to the bottom of available time frames and add the 10 minute by typing in 10, making sure it says "minutes" and click add.
One way to create an alert is to select the chart and time frame you want to add the alert to and hover over the word of the indicator that you would like an alert for. This action will bring up icons to the right of the indicator name. Click on the three horizontal dots (More) to access a drop down menu.
Choose "Add Alert" from the top of that drop down menu. This will pull up a window where you can create your alert.
To add an Aurora PBA alert you will need to hover over the Aurora System indicator that is for PBA (shown in the example). To add an Aurora CXA alert you will have to hover over the bottom Aurora System which we have changed to be CXA in Step 8.
The Alert Setup page will show the specific alert settings for each indicator. These settings have changed since the tutorial video was recorded.
On the alert settings window, scroll down and you will see "More Actions." Here is where you can select to have the alert play a sound.
Your sound settings will be saved from alert to alert. If you create an alert with a sound, the next alert will default to also having that same sound.
Due to indicator upgrades, AES is the only NCTA indicator you can customize the message you receive when the alert is triggered. The other NCTA indicators have the messages hard coded in. However, you can edit the Alert Name. This is the name that will show in the alerts log message column.
You only need to create one Next Bar Alert per time frame.
Due to the Next Bar Alert code, there may be a warning popup after you create an alert. You can ignore this warning and click "Continue anyway". The alerts will not repaint, this warning is triggered by the Next Bar alert code in the indicator but can appear on the creation of alerts for AES and Aurora. You can safely click "Continue Anyway" each time this warning pops up.
If you do not want to see this message in the future, check 'Got it".
Once you have setup all your alerts for each signal/indicator you want alerts on, you can view these alerts in the alert log.
Click on the alarm clock on the right hand side of the chart. This will open a side pane that will show your current alerts and the alert log below that. As each alert is triggered, they will appear in the alert log along with the time they are triggered.
To show only the alerts for the selected charts symbol, click the 3 dots at the top right hand corner of the alert frame and choose "Current symbol". This means if you have ES, RTY, and NQ alerts set, it will only show the NQ alerts when the NQ chart is selected. You can also choose current time frame if you have alerts set on different time frames so that you only see the alerts for the current time frame selected.
