Given you know nothing about programming, the best bet would be to hire it done from a reputable programmer. There are several here on the forums. If you re-state your request as "Please PM me to discuss a strategy I want to pay to get programmed" then you'll get a few responses.
If your goal is instead to learn to program, your best bet is start by going through the source code of the hundreds of indicators on the forum and understanding them line by line. Buy some C# books. Research everything online (Google is your friend). But it will likely be a long while before you can write your own advanced strategy, so you know realize that going in.
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.

you could start off by trying the strategy wizard - it is the simple way to program but
unfortunately the functions are way to limited - ninjatrader also has a list of its programmers
it is affiliated with on their site. also whilst getting your idea coded by someone else aren't you
giving yr idea away?
in ninjatrader go to tools - new ninjascript --strategy - next......
you will need to play around with it but to be honest i have had to have code
written for me because the strategy wizard is far too basic and limitedin what it can do,
maybe you could have some partial code written for you???
there are things you can do, use diff time frame exmp: if you use tick chart, specify a minute chart. change your setting, use the default indicator setting instead, throw in an extra indicator or two. Its not too hard to ignore the extra indicators once you have the final version in hand.
ask the developer to make it so that you can deactivate any indicator you want by turning it off or comment it out.

'Elite Cirle' / "Downloads" / "Generic Strategy ... " ... it is posted by Mike Winfrey
quote from Mike's write-up " I have written many strategies and finally came up with a decent, imo, engine for testing rulesets. This engine incorporates 3 Session Start and End times for evaluating different timeperiods, 4 different targets and a runner (each can be selected separately or together), initial stop, move to breakeven, and trailing stop. Each of these parameters can be enabled or disabled. I am providing this code for Elite members only. So please don't share this with others without getting my permission. "
