That should be Post #48, not #49.

I pasted the C# code for the Cycle Identifier and the RSI Input series into empty indicator shells and they worked immediately in NT7.

Druid, should it look like this?

An installer created in NT7 is also attached below.

Yes Zondor....Perfect!
Thank you very much for taking a look at this and for the fix-it tip.

Code Break Problem

See my previous post.

https://futures.io/25525-post28.html

That error is due to NT adding a boul for auto scaling or something simple like. If you follow the above post. then finding the extra variable is fast and should work right away.

UpToDate Versions of Pivot Indicator

The CMIPivots Indicators only work on NT 6.5., for NT 7 I have coded anaPivots. There are some small differences that I want to explain.

The idea behind CMIPivots

NT 6.5. pivots only show correct values, if you select the right session via chart properties. There are two major shortcomings:

(1) If you want to display day session pivots, you have to cut off all night session data from the chart.
(2) If you want to toggle between instruments, you have to change chart settings.

CMI Pivots basically adresses these problems and adds some further options such a second formula for floor pivots, Camarilla, Woodies and Fibonacci pivots and the anchored volume weighted average price (VWAP) of yesterday's session.

What has changed for anaPivots?

First of all NinjaTrader 7 allows to set up sessions via the session manager. You can then select the appopriate session for each instrument under instrument settings. Once this is done, you can easily toggle between instruments by using a chart template that relies on the session template <instrument settings>. This solves problem (2) explained above.

For anaPivots you need therefore to select the appropriate session template under instrument settings, and you can no longer set sessions via the indicator. This is also true for the pivots indicator of NT 7. So what are the advantages of anaPivots over the NT 7 pivots indicator?

(1) If you want to dispaly day session pivots with the NT pivots indicator, you need to cut off all night session data by selecting a RTH session template. With anaPivots you may select an ETH template and enter the session length (count backwards from session end of ETH session) and display day session pivots without cutting off the night session data.

(2) In case you use weekly and monthly pivots, the indicator can be used to calculate these by ignoring night session highs and lows.

(3) There is a new option that allows you - unlike all other pivots indicators that I know - to take into account holidays. Here comes an example: Monday, Feb 15 was a public holiday. Globex was open on this day, but all trades of Monday were for trade date Tuesday, Feb 16. In this case you will

(a) want to calculate Tuesday's pivots from Friday's instead of Monday's high, low and close
(b) want to calculate Wednesday's pivots from the entire prior session, which includes both Monday and Tuesday

Actually Monday and Tuesday was just a single combined session, and if you want correct pivots you need to take this into account (also cmp. CME Group website and www.mypivots.com to further explore this subject)

With anaPivots, just enter Feb 15 as a public holiday with trade date next day, and the indicator will take care of this!

(4) The pivots indicator of NT has a bug, because GetSessionDate() is flawed. This bug will produce false pivots depending on your PC clock and the session times of the instrument. In particular you will get false pivots for all US index futures, if you are located GMT +1 or further East. anaPivots does not use GetSessionDate(), but relies on FirstBarOfSession logic, which currently works.

(5) Further options include VWAP of prior session, midpivots, wide and narrow floor pivots, Camarilla pivots, Woodies pivots and Fíbonacci pivots.


Some remarks on NT 7.0.0.10 bugs

There are at least two NT 7.0.0.10 bugs that also affect pivots indicators:

NT 7 still confuses session break and day break, so it will not update daily data correctly after the session break. Pivots in DailyBars mode might therefore be false immediately after the close. Solution here: During the hours after the close (beginning night session) use pivots in CalcFromIntradayBar mode.

The second problem I have encountered relates to MergeBackAdjusted. For rollover days NinjaTrader applies false offsets to the new contract for many of the instruments with ETH sessions. This produces false pivots on the day after rollover days and may also affect weekly and monthly pivots, if a false weekly or monthly high is created. Solution here: Do not use MergeBackAdjusted around rollover date.

Below I have attached the latest version for both indicators. Please let me know, if you have any problems or remarks.

Posted this before, but needed to do more.

Update

I have learned the really hard way. NT 7, like a lot of Windows apps, requires a clean install. In this case a super clean one.

I recommend:
  • Run a Backup (Files>Utilities>Backup) Save the backup
  • Uninstall all previous NT versions including 6.5 if it is on the same computer This works: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/290301
  • Remove all folders used by NT 7 & 6.5
  • Clean the disk using the Windows Utility to remove unwanted files
  • Defragment the Hard Drive - Defraggler is free and way faster than the Windows version
  • Run CHKDSK - to make sure the hard drive is in good shape - can take a long, long time & is not necessary every time.
  • Download NT 7 (& 6.5 if you want to run both on the same system) and install
  • Run Restore (Files>Utilities>Restore) -It worked for 7b14.
Back your files up anytime you make an important change. I use a Network Drive to back up my computers.


Yes, it is time consuming, but It is worth all the effort. Although NT needs to add a few hours of support time to help those trading outside of the US.

PriceLine Indicator

I melded this into some code of mine (rather than as a separate indicator as here) but this is the nt7 version.

Zip version


The zip version only goes to the current bar and not to the right edge - I saw someone wanted that.
