Initial Balance Range Bands V42 5 *
Exported using NT Version 7.0.1000.26

Indicator will only run on NT 7.0.1000.5 or later.

Discretionary traders: Please use the multi-timeframe version of the indicator for odd minute charts and charts built from ticks.

The indicator displays the current open, the initial balance (IB) and upper and lower range bands that are calculated by adding and subtracting fractions of the initial balance to the IB high and IB low.

You can only use this indicator with an appropriate session template. The opening time will align itself to the start time of the RTH session, as specified via session template. The hybrid setting assumes that you want to use the 3rd intraday session as RTH session for FOREX and currency futures and the second session for all other instruments.

Example ES: Select a session template with the following sessions: Session 1 (night session) 15:30 - 8:30 Central Time, Session 2 (RTH) 8:30 - 15:15 Central Time. Select second session for opening range.

Select length of opening period: The length of the opening range can be selected via indicator dialogue box The default setting is 60 minutes.

Select Offset: With an offset of 00:00, the indicator aligns to the start of the selected session. If you enter a positive value for the offset, the opening range will be shifted forward from the session start. For example if you open a chart for ES with the session template US CME Index Futures, then the session (and the trading day) starts at 5:00 PM Central Time. To display an opening range for the regular session, you need to enter an offset of 15:30, because the regular session starts 15 hours and 30 minutes after the start of the trading day.

Multipliers for range bands: The multipliers for the upper and lower range bands can also be changed. The default settings for the bands are 0.5, 1 and 2, meaning that the first upper band is built from the IB high by adding half of the IB range, and similar for the other bands.

Developing range: Prior to the completion of the initial balance, the indicator plots the developing range in gray to show that the range is still incomplete.

Night session or pre-session range: The indicator also has an option to display the full night session, European or Asian session range. This feature is not used with the default settings. I did not add it on purpose, it was already part of the opening range indicator, and it was easier to leave it than to remove it.

European Session Range: You can select start and end time of the European Session in CET (Central European Time). The European Session is pre-configured for the time between 8:00 AM and 1:00 PM CET.

Asian Session Range: You can select start and end time of the Asian Session in TST (Tokyo Standard Time). The Asian Session is pre-configured for the time between 9:00 AM and 3:00 PM TST.

Update June 2, 2011: New signature for GetNextBeginEnd() implemented.
Update June 11, 2011: Small bug removed, indicator did not display opening range and pre-session range correctly during the training period (first bars of the chart, after scrolling to the left horizontally).
Update June 21, 2011: The indicator now works with half-pip FOREX feeds. Indicator dialogue box improved.
Update July 25, 2011: Serialization of the plots and indicator dialogue box changed.
Update January 24, 2012: Offset added, opening period no longer needs to be aligned to session start.
Update February 19, 2012: Option added to cut off the opening range at the next session break.
Update October 6, 2013: Minor bug removed, offset was not applied correctly on tick charts, when indicator was set to COBC = false.
Update October 24, 2013: Drop down property added for European and Asian Time Zone
Update December 8, 2013: Indicator partly recoded and custom plot added.

Average Volume 5 *
This indicator plots a 2 colored line representing the average volume over a period of bars. Simple as that...I was asked about the way I use volume to evaluate my entries and so I uploaded this indicator to assist in answering question. I won't answer that question here but just provide the indicator.

vvScreenShot 5 *
As the name suggests, this little indicator can save a screenshot of a chart (the chart the indicator is applied to) to a user selected folder. It can also upload the screenshot to and copy the link to the clipboard.
And it can even post to BMT.
It works with a little button on the chart(see picture), a button on the toolbar or with the hotkey Alt+P (this can be changed in line 160 of the code).

There are only two parameters to be entered:
the path to the folder NT shall save the screenshots to, default is C:\NTScreenshots and an option to either use the button or the hotkey.
The indicator can easily be applied to many charts without having to fear performance issues.

Thread is here:

Current version is v3.4

Changelog archive can be found in the thread post#1

December 21 2012: v2.4
Fixed a bug where windows in front of chart got caught on the screenshot. Timer function will not work when chart is minimized.

December 29 2012: v2.5
Fixed a bug where window is not fitted on the screenshot.

January 1 2013: v2.6
Major update. Added a setting "Post". When you take a screenshot it opens a dialog where you have to specify the thread id and can add text. The screenshot will be taken right away, not when you press "Post". When you press "Post" it will be posted directly to BMT. For this to work you will have to enter your API key in the indicator settings dialog. It also has a checkbox so you can even select to post text without a screenshot.

January 1 2013: v2.7
Added the option to enter a default thread id. This is purely optional, if left blank it will show the same behaviour as before. If a default thread id is specified, it also can be overwritten manually when you make a post in case you want to post to a different thread than the default.

January 1 2013: v2.8
Multi-line posts now working.

January 2 2013: v2.9
The buttons show the methods now (text for taskbar buttons and color code for chart buttons).
Hot Key is now user selectable, so you can use different ones for different methods.
Bug fixes: post form will not maximize/minimize anymore and will be brought back to front when button is pressed again.

January 2 2013: v3.0
Bug fix in PostPic.
Bug fix messages were not always displayed correctly on chart.

3. Jan 2013 v3.1
Now also works on minimized charts.

15. Jan 2013 v3.2
Corrected bug where price axis got cut off under some circumstances.

17. May 2013 v3.3 Critical Update, update immediately
Changed addresses from http to https, should work again.

10. March 2014 v3.4
Added a new option to only print the chart area itself, no frames or so...
Red "P" does no more show on screenshot.

Balanced Momentum 5 *
Exported using NT Version 7.0.1000.1

This is an improved version of the momentum indicator.

The n-period momentum is the difference between the close of the last bar and the close n bars ago. When a large bar n periods ago drops out of the momentum calculation, this can create a significant distortion, as it will show as a change in momentum, even if there was no or little price change for the last bar.

To eliminate this problem, the input value n bars ago was replaced with the triangular moving average SMA(SMA(Input, n+1), n+1)[0]. This modification does not change the usability of the momentum indicator, but simply eliminates the distortion.

SMI2 with no repaint option 5 *
Requested by VIP user.

Same SMI2 but this one won't repaint if you use a plot other than Line. If you use line, it will repaint 1 bar back to connect plots (like normal). But if you use something else, like a dot, it won't repaint.


NinjaTrader 6.5: YES
NinjaTrader 7.0: YES (tested by sam028)

BrickBars 5 *
This is a bar type for NinjaTrader, based on the superb BetterRenko by Aslan. (I only changed the size of the reversal brick, the name and set the PeriodType to Custom9)
It simply paints evenly sized bricks/bars if the price fills the specified range of ticks up or down from the last close.
Instead of only creating ladders (like a regular Renko does) one also gets sideways movement if the market is flat or oscillating. I creates a bit more noise but also helps to identify possible turning points when the market hesitates.
Because these bars are drawn from real ticks, there are some times shorter bars or even small gaps. In my experience it does not influence the correct alignment of the bars.
The BricksBars should be as reliable in backtesting as are the original BetterRenko.

Check, whether you have any other PeriodType registered as Custom9 before importing the script. (If so, you can easily change the number in Notepad.)
If you have any suggestions how to improve the code, feel free to contact me.

For a comparison of similar bar types look here.

Tape Speed Indicator V1.0 for ToS 5 *
This indicator measures exceptional ticker tape speed.

When "tape speed" is up, it can signal potential turnaround points (as the big guys load or unload), or sometimes the reinforcement of a trend as more people jump in.

The current version of this indicator will only work on tick charts and will not function properly on time based charts.

Let me know if you have questions.
