This one will use High and Low if you are using an input of Close, per the instructions posted. This also has the option of using EMA (mentioned in the instructions) or the original SMA. Also has the 'fixed' code from the NT forums. Dan

i wanted to ask you two another favor, if you could take a look at this indicator that isnt loading on my NT65. it is one that i paid to have altered by a programmer and now it doesnt load, i get an error message that i have also attached. the progrmmer said there could be errors in NT and i may have to reload NT.
that doesnt sound right to me, I was able to install several other indicators tonite as a test including the prior version of the MACD_enhanced that i am having troubles with now.
so could you see if my attached indicator installs properly?
its a free indicator for you and i assume it has no harmful script....???

the indicator works. If you get that error message, the likely reason is another corrupted indicator. So you need to make a clean-up of your NT directory containing the indicators, before you install that file.
To do this you have to find out, which one is the offending file. Just go to -> Tools -> Edit NinjaScript -> Indicator, then select one of your custom indicators - it is not important, which one - and open it. Then select F5 to compile. You will now get an error message that identifies the offending indicator(s). Delete that indicator(s) and your NT installation will be clean and ready for importing the enhanced MACD.

ok, thanks, i went to Tools-Edit ninjascript-indicator and was able to compile several custom indicators with out incident.
i did try installing the MACD_enhanced v6.5 with out success.
so i may have to do the entire reinstall. if i just reinstall NT65 will it transfer over templates and strategys too?
The indicator uses enums (enumerations). If you have the prior version of this indicator installed you cannot install this one, if it uses the same enums. So what you should try: Delete all prior versions and try installing the indicator again. If it does not work have a look at the trace file ( Own Documents -> NinjaTrader 6.5. -> Trace), the error message should show you the problem.

Thanks Fat Tails,
i did get the indicator working and it was what you said. the programmer had sent me some directions to do basically what you were saying, except he had me copy/past the guts of the new indicator directly into the Documents/NT6.5/Bin/Custom/Indicator Folder.
after that, i think i was able to do an install from the import ninjascript editor and that worked and then i was able to put the indicator on a chart, finally.
well i sure learned something today.
