Want to create an indicator and have no idea where to start?

Howdy. I am wanting to create an indicator based on a few oscillators. I have an indicator that contains two oscilators, another that has just one oscillator.

The oscilators change colors, which is what I want to base decisions on, along with their vertical positions (between 0-10, >10 etc).

I have some basic program knowledge, and I have created strategies in ninja over a year ago, but I have no idea where to start now. I've been looking for videos that might be doing something similiar to what I am doing, but can't find what I am looking for.

Any help would be appreciated.

I think once I get the indicators I want to have actually IN my indicator, I can fumble my way through with the IF/AND statements to get the results I want.

Have you looked here?

https://futures.io/elite-circle/10728-webinar-basic-ninjascript-coding-may-25th-4-30pm-eastern-22-30-berlin-paris.html

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.
6)
Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.

Yes, I was in that webinar. I was messing around with the code, having trouble figuring out how to get done what I want.

I do want to do most of it myself. But say i wanted to just add two CCI indicators to a chart, of different lengths. Then say i wanted to just place an arrow on a chart when one CCI is in between -100 and 0, AND the smaller CCI breaks below 0 for example.

To create an indicator, starting with the wizard and just getting the format done......

After that, to add indicators to be used, do I place these in the "Initialize" block?

Copy and Paste is your friend.

Find an indicator that does some of what you want and copy and paste.

I'm having some trouble importing and looking at some of these. I'm getting an error message attached.

I have deleted any user defined studies I have created, but they still seem to be somewhere other than my bin folder. How can I clear everything out?
