When I switched to NT7 I couldn't find a CMI Pivots that worked natively, the latest version I found was 8.0.

So I just modified it to work with NT7 which wasn't hard, and then I modified it to give it the visual look I wanted and also add some features I wanted (added more levels). Screen shots below. There are two indicators at work here, the Weekly Pivots -- the only one I modified because it's the only one I use -- and the CurrentDay, which is also the one showing the Fibonacci levels and the yesterday high and low.

I have two problems with these.

1) They occasionally throw an exception. I can't show you the exception because it didn't happen today and I don't have a capture of it. But, the exception is in the Plot override, an out of index exception.

2) They do not auto-update as new day highs and lows are made.

In both cases, you can Ctrl-Shift-R to reload historical data in NT7 and get the chart to update. A simple F5 update doesn't work.

I could use some help!

a) Can you fix the exception? I've stared at it a bit too long, can't see it!
b) Can you fix the auto update?
c) I am pretty sure the original CMI allowed you to scroll back to prior chart days and the pivots would update as you did. I guess I broke that, probably part of problem 1 and 2, but can't figure out where/how I broke it.

Also, on occasion I have noticed the indicator will complain of "Insufficient historical data, load a longer chart period" or whatever the message is, even though I have 60 days of chart history (plenty for a weekly pivot). Sometimes Ctrl-Shift-R fixes it, sometimes I have to exit Ninja and reload. I am not sure if it's a Ninja bug or a CMI bug or a bug I introduced to the CMI code.

I trade CL only, so I set the number scaling to two digits. For 6E it will look funny probably. I also set the padding for two digits, so if trade ES the margin will be a bit off. You can change it in the code.

You'll want a right-margin of about 125 or 150 for these on your chart.

Attached. Please upload the fixes and share

Hi BM,
I see you have the Fib. bands that are shown in your screen caps. Could you help me find the indicator? I really want it so I can start trading the ABC pattern. Attached is the one I found but it gives me an error when uploading to NT7.
Wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year

This is about two years old, you most definitely do not want to use this - it is out of date and has problems. Use Fat Tails version in the downloads section instead.

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)
