Trend GRaBer Indicator for FIO 5 *
Note: If you find bugs, have feature requests, or anything else, post in THIS thread.

This is the TrendGRaBer, ORIGINALLY created by @ Aligator. His NT7 version can be found HERE, and the NT8 version he created is on NT's EcoSystem HERE.

This indicator is based on a setup by Mrs. Raghee Horner. The credit for the setup goes to Mrs. Horner, and the indicator development to Aligator.

If interested in more information about trading this system, you can watch a webinar she posted HERE.

The indicator is simple, in that it produces 3 moving averages, based on a the High, Close and Low. These 3 MAs produce a channel. Prices that close ABOVE the channel are painted based on the bar's Open-Close relationship. Prices BELOW in a similar fashion. Closes in between the upper/lower channel a different color, also based on the individual bar's Open-Close relationship.

The indicator updates in real-time, on each tic.

The MA types available are:
  • EMA
  • SMA
  • HMA
  • WMA
  • DEMA
  • TMA
  • TEMA

Again, this indicator is not my idea, but based on the setup by Mrs. Horner, and the indicator built by Aligator.

---EDIT - 24January2020---
This indicator was renamed to Trend GRaBer with proper citations provided.

Wicks & Tails 4 *
I've been a fan of Better Renko bars for several years now and was looking for a way to identify when a Wick or a Tail on a Better Renko bar was larger than the setting I had chosen.

Eg., Using a 4 Better Renko bar setting on the ES and looking for Wicks or Tails that were 5 ticks or greater.

This little indicator will do that for you. It simply draws an Arrow symbol above or below the corresponding Wick or Tail.

When I trade the NQ I prefer a 3 Better Renko bar, I use the irWicksandTails indicator to highlight 4 tick Wicks or Tails.

I don't use them for trade entries, I just note when they start to show up and rely on their presence to help me discern a "short term" trend bias.

This indicator is for NT-8, and was compiled with Version 64 Bit

ADX based Trend/Reversal Regions 4 *
HI All,

I have created a simple indicator that "paints" regions on the chart based on ADX and EMA.

Very Simple algorithm:

Chart paints regions only when ADX is above a customizable level. Default is 15.

Region Color Green: ADX Rising; EMA Rising (Potentially Bullish Trending)
Region Color Blue: ADX Falling; EMA Rising (Potentially Reversal)
Region Color Red: ADX Rising; EMA Falling (Potentially Bearish Trending)
Region Color Yellow: ADX Falling; EMA Falling(Potentially Reversal)

You can use this indicator as a means of confluence with other strategies you may have.

I am new to this forum and my first attempt at publishing my program. Hence I am not aware of all caveats that I need to include here. But this is merely an indicator that portrays ADX Value and EMA Value movements. This is not by any means a suggestion to trade !!

Please provide your feedback and suggestions. Would appreciate that.

Regression Channel (amaRegressionChannel) 5 *
Version 1.1 September 9, 2018

The Regression Channel already comes as a NinjaTrader default indicator. However, the NinjaTrader default indicator comes with a few limitations, which are adressed by this indicator:

- The default indicator calculates the regression channel from the last bar loaded by OnBarUpdate(). When the chart scrolled back horizontally, the regression channel remains in its future position until it drops out of the chart.
- The default indicator does not allow for calculating the linear regression channel a few bars ago and then project the channel lines forward until the current bar.

This version of the indicator has the two issues addressed:

- The regression channel is calculated from the last bar shown on the chart and will adapt its position accordingly when you scoll back the chart horizontally.
- You may enter an offset and calculate the regression channel a few bars ago. The regression channel will then be extended until the last bar shown on the chart.

Repainting behavior: All regression channels - whether linear or polynomial - belong to the class of repainting indicators. All regression channels are retrofitted to the selected lookback period. The repainting can be easily observed with this indicator when scrolling horizontally. The indicator comes with an option to display the regression bands. The regression bands show the trace that the regression channel has painted on the chart without repainting any prior bars.

Public DataSeries: The indicator comes with four additional public DataSeries that can be accessed via the strategy builder.

- Normalized slope - This is an output which returns the slope in synthetic degrees. The slope has been normalized by dividing it by the square root of the average true range and then applying the arctangent.
- NormalizedChannelWidth - This series returns the normalized channel width around the regression line and may be used as a measure of non-directional volatility.
- RegressionTrend - The regression trend holds the value + 1 for an upsloping regression line and -1 for a downsloping regression line.

Market Analyzer Columns: The indicator comes with three separately coded market analyer columns which allow for displaying normalized slope, normalized channel width and the regression trend on the market analyzer.

Multiple Moving Average Crosses (amaMultiMACross) 5 *
Version 2.2 March 8, 2020

The Multiple MA Cross indicator plots a fast and a slow moving average and colors the area between the two moving averages. Both the fast and the slow moving average may be selected from a collection of over 30 different moving averages.

The indicator is primarily designed as a trend filter to show whether the market is in an uptrend or in a downtrend. The indicator comes with two different trend definitions - cross and thrust. The trend is exposed as a double series and can be accessed via the NinjaTrader strategy builder or the market analyzer. Directly accessing the trend via the market analyzer requires a separately coded market analyzer column, which is not yet included with the install file.

Trend definition "MA Cross": The current trend changes to "uptrend" when the fast moving average crosses the slow moving average from below. The current trend changes to "downtrend" when the fast moving average crosses the slow moving average from above.

Trend definition "Thrust": The current trend changes from “downtrend” to “uptrend” with the first bullish thrust bar that plots above the upper moving average. A bullish thrust bar is a bar that closes above the prior bar’s high and has a larger range than the prior bar. The current trend changes from “uptrend” to “downtrend” with the first bearish thrust bar that plots below the lower moving average. A bearish thrust bar is a bar that closes below the prior bar’s low and has a larger range than the prior bar.

Moving averages available as fast and slow moving average:

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

Applying the Multi MA Cross to indicators: The Multi MA Cross is designed to be applied to other indicators which may be selected as input series. However, some of the moving averages listed above will not support this feature. In case that a selected moving average does not support the feature the indicator will display an error message asking you to select a different moving average for the fast or the slow moving average. These are the moving averages that may not be selected when an indicator is chosen as input series: Mean TPO, Mean VWTPO, Median TPO, Median VWTPO, RWMA, VWMA, ZerolagHATEMA. These moving averages may only be applied to price.

Paint Bars: The MultipleMA Cross indicator comes with paint bars. The paint bars are colored according to the trend, where the trend maybe determined via the "MA Cross" or the "Thrust" option. The paint bars may be displayed without the indicator plots.

Scalpel Signal_v2 4 *
This indicator was designed to provide an entry signal, in either a trending configuration using an EMA filter, or via a countertrend formation (especially in range bound markets) using a higher sensitivity threshold.

There are 4 available parameters which guide output. The WARNING levels, and the SIGNAL thresholds.

Maximum values for WARNING or SIGNAL should not exceed (normally) + or minus 7.

Indicator works best with non-minute bars (tick, range, renko, volume).

When deployed with trend filters, consider using a lower WARNING and SIGNAL sensitivity range to define possible pullback entry areas. If no filter (EMA) is used, watch for punctures of the signal candle high/low for continuation movements.

True Strength Index (TSI) 4 *
Exported using NT Version 7.0.1000.30

The True Strength Index was developed by William Blau and published in his book "Momentum, Direction and Divergence". This version of the TSI is an enhanced version of the NinjaTrader default indicator. It comes with the following improvements:

Momentum period: The original version of the indicator uses the price difference between the current and the prior close, which is the 1-period momentum. The updated version of the indicator also allows for selecting a momentum period greater than 1.

Triple Smoothing: The standard version of the indicator comes with double smoothing for momentum and absolute momentum. William Blau himself also used triple smoothing, This indicator lets you choose between double and triple smoothing. If you set the third smoothing period to 1, you will get double smoothing, and the indicator will display identical results with the NinjaTrader default indicator.

Smoothing with different moving averages: William Blau has suggested to use the EMA for double or triple smoothing. This indicator offers you a selection of more than 30 different moving averages for the smoothing. The default is set to EMA in line with the original indicator.

Signal Line: I have added a signal line for timing entries and exits. The signal line is obtained by smoothing the TSI with one of the selectable moving averages, similar to the signal line of the MACD. The default period for the signal line is 7.

Histogram: The indicator has an option to plot a histogram, which shows the difference between TSI and signal line.

Trend definition: The indicator exposes the current trend via an IntSeries. The trend can be determined based on the TSI (rising & not oversold, falling & not overbought, neutral), the signal line (rising & not oversold, falling & not overbought, neutral)) or the TSI / signal line crosses. All trend definitions are not straightforward, but require a higher close to switch to an uptrend, or a lower close to switch to a downtrend. Moreover the DSM / signal line cross will only show an uptrend, when not oversold and a downtrend when not overbought.

Paint bars: The paintbars can be used to plot the trend information. The trend states are uptrend, downtrend and neutral trend as explained above. It is possible to apply the indicator to the price panel and unselect the indicator plots. This allows to use the indicator as a "paintbar only" indicator.

Sound alerts: The indicator comes with sound alerts which are triggered when the trend changes. The sound files are included with the zip file and should be manually copied into the directory Documents -> program files (x86) -> NinajTrader 7 -> sounds.

Update March 13, 2014: Trend filter, paint bars, sound alerts and histogram added.
Update November 16, 2015: Momentum period added. Option added to select from different moving averages.

Note: The parameter structure of the indicator was changed. In case that you have used the prior version of the anaTSI as input series for other indicators or strategies, these indicators or strategies will only work, if you change the syntax of the indicator call to conform with the new parameter structure.

XTL - eXpert Trend Locator 5 *
XTL is an indicator that originally was introduced in eSignal Advanced Get. This a version that approximate in a good way the original version (which formula seems to be secret and not shared by eSignal company). It helps you to easily define in what kind of trend you are.
Its calculation is based on CCI and a fixed value of that indicator:
- if CCI value<-fixed value you're in a short trend (red bars);
- if -fixedvalue<=CCI<=+fixedvalue you are in a non trend/flat period (black bars);
- if CCI>fixed value you're in a long trend period (blue bars);

In this version created by me you can customize:
- the fixed value (standard setting is 37)
- CCI period (stardard settings are 21 or 35)
- uptrend/flat trend/downtrend bar color

Very useful if used on tick chart or range bar chart
