I've been using the original native NEXGEN T-3 Fibs software now for almost a year and until now have not been able to develop any strategies in NT7 because the NEXGEN software code is closed. After finally replicating the indicators (noted w orange halo and price markers) I noticed a one bar lag. The replicated MACD is also one dot behind (the tiny dot is Nexgen). As most traders know 1 bar can be worth thousands especially when used in a strategy! Is there any way to fix this? Thanks to anybody for their input!

If you want the value for the current bar to be plotted, you need to set the indicators to CalculateOnBarClose = False.

This way the result for the unstable period will be shown. This requires that the indicator recalculates the result with each incoming tick, so it will increase CPU load. So if you use this setting with complex indicators, NinjaTrader might freeze. But for trigger lines, Keltner Channels and MACD there should be no problem.
