Thanks! Got them, but canīt see them after restart of NT? Do you have an idea?

if you follow 1-4 exactly then use crtl + arrow up/down to adjust candle size


1) copy .cs file into \Documents\NinjaTrader 7\bin\Custom\Type
2) re-import any indi you imported successfully before.
3) re-start ninja
4) open a chart, select chartstyle CandlestickVol

Thank you again! Iīll test it tonight and report. BTW, is there a counter for the "ordinary" volume bar in NT available?
What is your experience with volume bars, the "ordinary" and the CandlestickVol? It seems, they deliver a bit more information about the price action?

This thread is for MultiCharts users.


Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.

This thread is for MultiCharts users.


Now iīve seen it. Sorry.
It seems, that Multicharts doesnīt have these volumecandles, but many other platform as the mentioned oneīs have.
Am i right? Because of the posts about the other platforms i havenīt seen, that this was original for MultiCharts users.
Does MultiCharts meanwhile have these candles, or no?

PS: the volumecandles work for me now on NT and i like it, but iīm thinking to test eventually MC, because NT eats so much CPU...iīve heard, MC is at least better in that...
