i am still looking for a reliable trend channel indicator . And was wondering if Fat tails took on the challenge to program the ninjascript version of metatrader?

In the last 4 years has there been improvement in programming a trend channel indicator?

Is this possible:
You manually draw the trend channels on the chart, but the strategy is able to identify and use these lines for auto trading?


I had enough other challenges. I also did code a trend line indicator, but it follows a different method. It has nothing to do with trend channels. In fact I plan to use it for a dynamic wall painting.

I found 2 indicators on the NT forum:
- AutoTrendLine: trendchannel
- DynamicSRLines: horizontal support and resistance lines

Together with the info Fat tails provided in this thread they helped me to start programming my own.

regarding my former question :
Is it possible to manually draw trend channels / horizontal s+r lines on the chart.
From there can you get signals, or trade on it.?

The indicators in the videos below show this is possible.
horizontal s+r lines:

How to program this?
Can someone show me in the right direction?
Is there sample code available where i can learn from?
