I see you were able to tweak the original Priceline indicator that I (duck_CA) made for v.6.

Thanks. It is such a simple indicator that is one of my favorites!

I decided to download NT7 on a separate laptop and the download went fine. However, when I went to download some indicators that didn't go so well. I keep getting the error that the file could not be found. I am trying to download the following; VWAP, CMI pivots. I am sure that these are NT7 indicators that I am downloading. I am looking for some help.

CMI pivots is an old NT 6.5 indicator that I have coded long time ago. So please use the NT 7 indicators:

Fat Tails,

I am still having the same issue. Please see attached.

What your doing (copying) has nothing to do with NinjaTrader it would seem.

What are you doing exactly?

You should download the zip files, NOT unzip them, and then go to NinjaTrader Control Center - File - Import, and point to the ZIP (NOT unzipped).

Mike

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.

Sweet, it's working now. I don't remember doing it this way with 6.5.

Thanks Mike

No overload?

I had trouble importing the indicator "iadx" adx histogram that looked useful and so I opened the zip file and placed the cs file into the indicators folder and opened it in 'edit indicator' and hit compile. The attached pic is the error message. I am trying to understand what is it requesting but have no idea. I suspect a bracketed number is missing? Is someone able to assist me please?
Thanks

The indicator does not compile, because it references an old version of the T3 indicator. The indicator probably needs to be adapted to work with the current T3 system indicator of NinjaTrader.

Replace

 
Code
if (T3 (0.7, 2)[0] <  T3 (0.7, 2)[1])
with

 
Code
if  (T3(14,3,0.7)[0] < T3(14,3,0.7)[1])
and it should work.

Maybe you have to change the settings to get an identical result.

Another option is to rename the old T3 indicator in the install package to T3Old, copy the renamed file to the indicator directory, compile it, and then call T3Old instead of T3 from within the other indicator.
