can someone put up some procedure as to how to convert Ninja Indicator to Ninja Strategy. is it few steps copying the Indicator's code in the Strategy wizard? or is there much coding involved as i dont know coding and haven't done it before. any help is appreciated
There is no real way to convert an indicator to a strategy, e_H_G. They are two different things. Most indicators are just visual plots on a graph based on mathematical formulas. A strategy is a set of rules of when, what, how much, and why to enter and exit trades. You can use indicators to build your strategy, as you've probably seen in the strategy wizard, but most indicators can't simply be "converted" to be a strategy, or at least a viable one. With that said, some indicators I build contain buy/sell rules and have "Buy" or "Sell" data series so if I want to use it in a strategy I just look at the buy/sell data coming out of the indicator and just focus the strategy code on money management and other factors strats need to concern themselves with.
It is technically possible but requires advanced programming, and it also will work for live trading only - not backtesting.

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?

As Mike said, it's advanced programming. At the moment NT does not normally allow an ATM (chart trader) and strategy to be run simultaneously. As a work around, you need to use the ChartControl functions, which are technically not supported by NT. But I understand that NT will be offering more support for them in NT 8.

Every indicator is different. You've got to know what the author of the indicator provided as public accessibility. Anything in the indicator that is public should be able to be used in your strategy (public DataSeries is an example).
Here's an example ... say you're using the Stochastics indicator ... you could access the K DataSeries like so ...
This calls the constructor for the Stochastics class, and returns the current value for %K.
You might then use something like the following in your strategy ...
