SuperTrend U11 (amaSuperTrendU11) 5 *
Version 2.3*) November 16, 2017

The SuperTrend indicator is an application of the concept of MAE (maximum adverse excursion), which was introduced by John Sweeney in the mid-nineties. It is a Stop-And-Reverse (SAR) indicator based on breakouts from a modified Keltner channel.

The SuperTrendU11 is an enhanced version of the original SuperTrend indicator that comes with the following modifications:

- You may select between 36 different moving averages for the baseline.
- The baseline is calculated one bar ago to avoid recalculating with each incoming tick.
- You may select from 4 different volatility measures - average true range, average range, residual mean absolute deviation and residual root mean square deviation
- Average true range and average range can be calculated from 30 different moving averages.
- All volatility measures are also calculated one bar ago.

In fact there is no point in moving a trailing stop towards the current price intra-bar. Therefore a trailing stop should always be calculated from the prior bar and not the last price.

When you import the install file to NinjaTrader, it will also install the following moving averages:

- Moving Median
- Moving Median TPO
- Moving Median VWTPO
- Moving Mean TPO
- Moving Mean VWTPO
- Adaptive Laguerre Filter
- ADXVMA
- Butterworth Filter
- Distant Coefficient Filter
- Double Weighted Moving Average (DWMA)
- Exponential Hull Moving Average (EHMA)
- Gaussian Filter
- Holt EMA
- Laguerre Filter
- Range Weighted Moving Average
- SuperSmoother
- Sine Weighted Moving Average
- Tillson T3
- Triple Weighted Moving Average (TWMA)
- ZerolagHATEMA
- ZerolagTEMA

It will also install debugged versions of MAX and MIN, as the in-built versions supplied with NT8 do not work correctly with Renko bars (RemoveLastBarSupported).

The SuperTrend U11 can be set to revert intra-bar or at the bar close. With default settings the stop line is only broken, when there is a bar close beyond the stop. The indicator further comes with paint bars and sound alerts.

The SuperTrend is a trend indicator, which can be used in various ways. It is best used as a trailing stop or as a trend filter. It can also be used as a stop-and-reverse indicator, but will only work as such in trending markets. Typically it will allow for profitable results while the market is trending and then give the money back in sideways markets.

Note: The SuperTrend U11 has the trend exposed as a public property. This property can be accessed programmatically. However, it cannot be currently accessed via the market analyzer. In order to access the Trend series via the market analyzer, a specific MarketAnalyzerColumn is required. The MarketAnalyzerColumn is not yet included with the install file, as it has led to freezes with NT 8.0.8.0. The bug has been confirmed by NinjaTrader developers and only fixed with the latest release NT 8.0.9.0. (issue #12054). The market analyzer column and sound files for the SuperTrend U11 will be available with a future update.

*) Unfortunately, the forum software always renames zip files to match the original file name. Therefore the zip file refers to a prior version of the amaSuperTrendU11. Be assured that the zip file contains the indicator version referenced in the headline.

SuperTrend M11 (amaSuperTrendM11) 5 *
Version 2.0*) October 15, 2017

The SuperTrend indicator is an application of the concept of MAE (maximum adverse excursion), which was introduced by John Sweeney in the mid-nineties. It is a Stop-And-Reverse (SAR) indicator based on breakouts from a modified Keltner channel.

The SuperTrendM11 is an enhanced version of the original SuperTrend indicator that comes with the following modifications:

- The moving average has been replaced with a more robust median.
- The median is calculated one bar ago to avoid recalculating with each incoming tick.
- The average true range (ATR) is calculated one bar ago to avoid recalculating with each incoming tick.

In fact there is no point in moving a trailing stop towards the current price intra-bar. Therefore a trailing stop should always be calculated from the prior bar and not the last price.

SuperTrend U11 5 *
Exported using NT Version 7.0.1000.11

This is a new implementation of the TradeStation SuperTrend indicator for NinjaTrader 7. The SuperTrend indicator is an application of the concept of MAE (maximum adverse excursion), which was introduced by John Sweeney in the mid-nineties. The SuperTrend can be viewed as a trailing stop and changes direction, when the trailing stop is taken out.

The SuperTrend U11 calculates both the baseline and the offset 1 bar ago, as did the SuperTrend M11. This is to reduce CPU load and avoid feedback loops.

Accessing the trend: The indicator comes with a BoolSeries that holds the trend. This BoolSeries can be accessed by other indicators or automated strategies.

Reverse Intra-bar = false: This is the default setting of the indicator. A logical signal will be generated when the close of the signal bar has taken out the stop line. The position may be reversed at the open of the next bar. The paint bars will only change colors for the bar after the signal bar. The arrow will be also plotted for the entry bar.

Reverse Intra-bar = true: This is an unusual setting for the SuperTrend. The signal will be generated with the first tick that has plotted on the other side of the stop line. In this case the position may be reversed intra-bar for the signal bar. Paintbars and arrows will already plot for the signal bar.

Paintbars: The indicator has an option to display the current trend via paintbars. Downclose bars are filled, upclose bars are hollow. For the upclose bars an opacity can be selected for better visibility.

Arrows: The indicator has an option to display trend changes via an arrow.

Sound alerts: The indicator will alert to trend reversals and potential trend reversals. A potential trend reversal occurs when price touches the stop line intra-bar prior to the confirmation by a close on the other side of the stop line. The sound files are included with the indicator install file. Please unzip and copy them into the program files (x86)\ NinjaTrader 7\ sounds directory or whatever directory is used by NinjaTrader to store the sound files.

Comparing Supertrend U11 to Supertrend M11:

The SuperTrend U11 is a generalization of the SuperTrend M11.

-> The SuperTrend M11 uses the moving median of the arithmetic mean (High + Low)/2 one bar ago and adds/subtracts a multiple of the average true range one bar ago.

-> The SuperTrend U11 allows you to use the median as above , but instead you can also calculate the baseline from a selection of other indicators. These are the options available for the baseline

- a moving median
- a moving mode
- an ADXVMA
- a 2-pole Butterworth filter
- a 3-pole Butterworth filter
- a DEMA (double exponential MA)
- a DSMA (double simple MA)
- a DTMA (double triangular MA)
- a DWMA (double weighted MA)
- an Ehlers filter
- an EMA
- a 2-pole Gauss filter
- a 3-pole Gauss filter
- a 4-pole Gauss filter
- a HMA (Hull MA)
- a Holt EMA
- a Linear Regression indicator
- a LLMA (phase set to 0)
- a SMA
- a 2-pole Supersmoother
- a 3-pole Supersmoother
- a TEMA (triple exponential MA)
- a TMA (triangular MA)
- a TSMA (triple simple MA)
- a TWMA (triple weighted MA)
- a VWMA(volume weighted MA)
- a WMA (weighted MA)
- a ZeroLagHATEMA
- a ZeroLagTEMA
- a ZLEMA

While the SuperTrend M11 uses the average true range as an offset, the offset for the SuperTrend U11, can be selected as

- a moving average (or median, mode) of the simple range
- a moving average (or median, mode) of the true range
- the standard deviation

The added options will not slow down the indicator, as the selection becomes effective, when the indicator is added.

You can reproduce the SuperTrend M11 with the SuperTrend U11, if you apply it to the arithmetic mean (Median in NinjaSpeak) and select "Median" for the baseline, "EMA" for offset smoothing and "True Range" for offset type. However you need to take into account that the ATR uses Wilder's exponential smoothing (smoothing constant k = 1/n) which is different from the EMA (smoothing constant k = 2/(n+1)). For example an offset period of 8 for the SuperTrend M11 will produce a smoothing factor of 1/8 and translate to an offset period of 15 for the SuperTrend U11.

Update July 3, 2012: ADXVMA option for baseline added.
Update July 5, 2012: Bug removed - Butterworth, Gauss and Supersmoother Fillter did not use the specified baseline period.
Update August 17, 2012: Old version of ADXVMA replaced with new version.
Update August 31, 2012: Ehlers filter updated.
Update October 2, 2012: Indicator simplified. Trend state can no longer change intra-bar. Gaussian and Ehlers filters updated. Mode removed from options.
Update October 3, 2012: Indicator now allows for displacement. BoolSeries modified for accessing the trend. Trend change intra-bar is possible with option reverse intra-bar and COBC = false.
Update March 5, 2013: Arrows now plotting one bar earlier for the option Reverse intra-bar = true.

For the last three updates you also need to update Bollinger Universal & Keltner Universal, if you have them installed. Please remove old versions of those indicators first.

Gann HiLoActivator U1 5 *
Exported using NT Version 7.0.1000.10

This is a new implementation of the Gann HiLo activator for NinjaTrader 7. The HiLo Activator was introduced by Robert Krausz with his FibonacciTrader and first described by him in "The New Gann Swing Chartist", which was published in the TASC magazine (Stocks & Commodities V16:2, pp 57-66) in 1998. The original HiLo Activator was a three day simple moving average calculated from the daily highs and the daily lows.

The HiLowActivator gives a reversal signal, when the bar closes below the low average in an uptrend or above the high average in a downtrend. The HiLoActivator should be used in conjunction with other indicators.

This NinjaTrader version has a few particularities:

- It calculates the indicator value from the prior bar, that is one period ago. This is the reason that I have called it U1 in line with the SuperTrend U11 indicator.

- With historical data and CalculateOnBarClose = true: Signals are generated for the current bar.

- With real-time data: The reversal signal is generated, when the first tick of the following bars confirms that the previous bar has been closed. It is recommended to use the One-tick repaint option with real-time data. The signal will then be shown for the bar which actually broke the stopline. The One-Tick repaint option is deactivated per default, to avoid any problems, if the indicator is called by a strategy.

Paintbars: The indicator has an option to display the trend via paintbars. Donwclose bars are filled, upclose bars are hollow. For the upclose bars an opacity can be selected for better visibility.

Arrows: The indicator has an option to display trend changes via an arrow.

Sound alerts: The indicator will alert to trend reversals and potential trend reversals. A potential trend reversal occurs when price touches the stop line intra-bar prior to the confirmation by a close on the other side of the stop line. The sound files are included with the indicator install file. Please unzip and copy them into the program files (x86)\ NinjaTrader 7\ sounds directory or whatever directory is used by NinjaTrader to store the sound files.

The HiLoActivatorU1 can calculate the stop line from the following moving averages:

- a moving median
- an ADXVMA
- a 2-pole Butterworth filter
- a 3-pole Butterworth filter
- a DEMA (double exponential MA)
- a DSMA (double simple MA)
- a DTMA (double triangular MA)
- a DWMA (double weighted MA)
- an Ehlers filter
- an EMA
- a 2-pole Gauss filter
- a 3-pole Gauss filter
- a 4-pole Gauss filter
- a HMA (Hull MA)
- a Holt EMA
- a Linear Regression indicator
- a SMA
- a 2-pole Supersmoother
- a 3-pole Supersmoother
- a TEMA (triple exponential MA)
- a TMA (triangular MA)
- a TSMA (triple simple MA)
- a TWMA (triple weighted MA)
- a VWMA(volume weighted MA)
- a WMA (weighted MA)
- a ZeroLagHATEMA
- a ZeroLagTEMA
- a ZLEMA

Before installing the indicator you need to update SuperTrendU11, Bollinger Universal & Keltner Universal, if you have them installed. Please remove old versions of those indicators first.
