Need an indicator up / down bars


I generally run 1 minute charts for the YM on Ninjatrader 7. Budget up to $250

Looking to have an indicator created that starts a count of the number of each up / down bars and the number of ticks.

The only configuration I need is start session time and end session time.

There would be a counter / table at the top left of the chart or thereabouts:

An example of how it would look, for example, 10 minutes into the session and we've had 6 bull bars and 4 bear bars.

Bull bars: 6 / 50 ticks, 60%

Bear bars: 4 / 15 ticks 40%

bull (close > open) / bear (close < open) bars and the range of the candle body.

My only input would be start / end session time.

Indicator output would be;
1. Number of bull / bear bars
2. A cumulative tally of up / down ticks (e.g a bull bar - opens at 16,000 and closes at 16,020 therefore 20 is added to the tally up.
3. % up bars vs down bars. So. For example, 10 minutes into the session we've had 10 bars and 6 up, 4 down = 6/10 = 60% and 4/10 = 40%

It would be a cumulative count for the session, with each regular session starting at 0.

Thank-you. I look forward to hearing from you.
