Better Bar Timer 5 *
Note: If you find bugs, have feature requests, or anything else, post in THIS thread.

This is a BETTER bar timer for NT.

This does the same thing the standard bar-timer that ships with NT does, except its better.

You can customize this one to be as subtle or obnoxious as you want it to be.

FONT CONTROL: It will allow you complete control over the text. This includes font style, font weight, text size, the color, etc.

FONT PLACEMENT: You can place it ANYWHERE on the screen. You can start with the origin points to include any of the 4 corners on the chart.

OFFSETS: Included with that standard placement, you can offset it from the edges by n-pixels. So after you place it, you can adjust it both horizontally AND vertically.

PRETEXT: I created this as I think the standard bar-timer takes up unnecessary space. I myself just like to see the clock-time, as it takes up less space. Here, you can leave it BLANK(default), or add in your own CUSTOM text. So if you like the standard timer, you could input "Time remaining = " for example, and it would be like the standard one. DO NOT USE escape characters, like backslashes in the pretext input field.

See image below for example of adding pretext.

NOTE: Installing this indicator will create a folder called "BTMM," that's where the indicator will be.

---EDIT - V4 20January2020---
As per suggestion of @locky, and wanting to minimize space(purpose of this indie), you can now toggle on independently, and in any combination, the display of Hours, Minutes or Seconds. E.g., No need to show hours for a sub-hour chart.

---EDIT - V3 19January2020---
There was a bug with this indicator NOT saving the text style in templates or a workspace. This bug should be fixed now. Apologies for inconvenience. Thanks to @mrlucky1x for finding this bug

---EDIT - V2 16January2020---
Version two of this indicator will have a box around the text. By default it will be set to transparent, so you won't see it unless you change the color. Opacity setting is also there so you can make the box color more/less transparent.

secondsperbar 5 *
Simply totals the seconds required to draw a bar. Designed to be used with non-time based bars. Includes 2 horizontal reference lines, for example can have the 1st line represent 60 seconds (1 minute) and 2nd line set to 180 seconds (3 minute). Bars change to red if the number of seconds exceeds your desired Maxsec threshold, for example turns bars red if 120 seconds (2 minutes) is exceeded. Includes ability to draw a SMA of the time as well that defaults to a 5 period.

GHPBarTimer 5 *
I know I have seen an indicator like this before on BMT, but I was asked to create this by someone recently so I figured I would post it for the rest of BMT. This indicator is meant for not time based bar types such as Renko or Range. It will report the average time of the bars over the last period in Sec. It will also present the time of the current bar for comparison. If the Sec are less than the alarm limit, it will paint that bar Green and a gray strip into the primary chart.

Red Trace: Average time in Bars/Sec over period
Light Blue: Time of current bar in seconds
Green/Gray Strip: Alarm limit reached

00: Initial release

UniRenko - Universal Renko BarType 5 *
This is my implementation of a Universal Renko bar type. It allows the user to choose when the bar closes in the direction of the previous bar (Trend), and when it closes in the direction against the previous bar (Reversal).

This allows you to tailor the bar to behave specifically how you want it in ways that hopefully may enhance your particular trading style. As an example, if I am a reversal trader, entering on reversal bars, and putting my stop behind the entry bar, I can choose trend and reversal settings that minimize the size of reversal bars, and therefore optimize my stop sizes, etc.

Parameters are:

'Tick Trend' - Number of ticks to close the bar in the Trend direction
'Tick Reversal' - Number of ticks to close the bar in the Reversal direction
'Open Offset' - Number of ticks offset to draw the artificial open

Like most Renko bars, the bar open is artificial, and is placed by default halfway up the previous bar. The open is aesthetic only, it is not used in the bar size calculation. The tails on the bar show real prices. The artificial Open may affect your backtesting depending on the coding of your strategy. Internally uses NT PeriodType.Custom5

To support Muti TimeFrame indicators/strategies using the Add() method, added an alternative way to specify all bar specs in the 'Tick Trend' parameter. You can now alternatively specify each parameter as 3 digits in the Data Series window 'Tick Trend' parameter or Add() method 'Period' parameter. For example to specify TickTrend=4 , TickReversal=8, OpenOffset=2 or (T4R8O2) then specify: 'Tick Trend'=004008002 in Data Series window, or Add(PeriodType.custom5, 004008002);' in your MTF code. The normal way of specifying the parameters will continue to work as well.

July 11 2013: Please note, user "dstrader" has uploaded a crucial bug fix for this bartype. You can find the download link here:

Signal Bars 5 *
Originally ported from MetaTrader, I found this in one of BMT's threads & made some slight modifications to it. I found the original bar size and font size a little too small for my large monitor and decided to add a "bar size multipler" and "font size multiplier" to enlarge the size of the color bars as well as the font.

Other older members, who, like myself, may have a difficult time seeing small objects on a chart, may find this helpful.

You can increase the size of the color bars, the font, or both.

Exported from NinjaTrader 7.0.022

Range Bar Predictor and Price Panel 4 *
Exported with Version 6.5. I do not have Version 7 (I don't want to be a pioneer. A pioneer is a guy who ends up in a ditch with arrows in his back).

This is a Range Bar Hi/Lo Predictor (RangeBarPredictor) and a Price Panel (PricePanel) with the Hi/Lo numbers as well as price for the current bar and the previous bar with an option to show the angle of the EMA(34). This was requested by steve2222 in the Wizard II thread.

To insert the PricePanel into a NinjaTrader chart; click on Properties, click on Right Side Margins and change it to 140. Insert PricePanel, it will show up in the expanded right hand margin. There are some adjustments that allow you to change the vertical location of the data.

The panel shows,countdown timer to bar completion in Ticks, Number of Ticks to closest bar end( Green for ticks to High and red for Ticks to Low) current price, Hi/Lo of current bar, Projected HI/Lo of current bar, previous bar close , previous bar Hi/Lo and the angle of the EMA(34).

This panel has been around on NinjaTrader for a long time in various versions with code written by way to many people to give credit to everyone who contributed. I am NOT a programmer, please have a professional review this code before using to trade real money.

Insert the RangeBarPredictor in the panel with the price bars. A down arrow will show the predicted high start of the next bar and an up arrow will show the predicted low start of the next bar. You have an option to change the colors of the arrows. Various versions of this indicator have been posted on NinjaTrader over the years.

NT 7 has the following Code Break Error :ChartControl.SessionBegin.TimeOfDay == ChartControl.SessionEnd.TimeOfDay - ZTrade101
