Hi guys,

futures io is challenging members to create the best NinjaTrader indicators and share them to our "Downloads" section, for a chance to win some prizes!

Why NinjaTrader
I am specifically calling for NinjaTrader indicators at this time. I realize there are plenty of members that use other great platforms, and we will include them soon in future challenges. For this particular challenge, we are focusing only on NinjaTrader 8 indicators.

How to add your indicator to our "Downloads" area
First, export your indicator in NinjaTrader to a zip file. Keep in mind that we do not permit closed source (DLL) indicators to be uploaded -- we only allow indicators where the full code is open to all, for safety and for the ability to easily modify and customize them.

If you need help exporting your indicator from NinjaTrader, please go ahead and ask in this thread.

Second, once you have the ZIP file, you'll need to take a screenshot of your NinjaTrader chart that contains the indicator example that you wish to share with other members. If you need help taking the screenshot, please ask in this thread. JPG and PNG is welcome.

(Optional) If your indicator would benefit from a discussion thread on the site, feel free to create a new thread that talks about the indicator. You should probably do that before submitting your indicator, so you can grab the URL for the thread, and add that to the description of the indicator so others may quickly jump to your thread.

Third, you need to Add to our Download section. Click this link to go directly to the Add Entry to NinjaTrader 8 Indicator page:

From this location, put the details of your indicator into the form and then when finished, click submit. You'll add the name of the indicator, a description, keywords (like EMA, ADR, Order Flow, Volume Profile), you'll upload the ZIP file from your computer, and you'll upload the screenshot of your chart as the image.

Don't worry about the other fields -- just leave them alone and at default values.

Last, click Submit at the bottom of the form to add the indicator to our site. Congrats! We appreciate your submission and sharing.

The next post will talk about prizes!


My apologies for interrupting.

I accidentally downloaded a NT8 script (jprBollingerBands) into the NT7 area using (link which I had in my OLD notes) instead of

How do I move it to the NT8 area? Or can you move it for me?

You could have moved it yourself by selecting the "Edit" icon and changing where it was posted to originally.
