  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

A Simple Programming Request

Hi everyone,

I have been playing around with some ideas for a scalping method and while I have traded for a little while I have never written programs in NinjaTrader before.

Is someone able to write an indicator that identifies the following chart pattern:
- There are at least 3 bars with equal Highs below a 12-period EMA
- This is followed by 2 bars with equal Highs above the 12-period EMA
- The first of these 2 bars has a range (e.g. High - Low) of no more than 4 ticks

Once this has occurred there should be something like a dot or so to signal the presence of this pattern.

I am hoping that this request is not too demanding so that someone versed in Ninjascript can do this in a flash.

Thanks a lot in advance for any help.

If you don't get the reply you were looking for, you should post here:


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.
