Need NT indicator help to print highlight bars

I am looking for an NT indicator that will mimic the Highlight Bars, i.e. New Highest High and New Lowest Low over the past 17 periods that is available in Trade Navigator. I'm using the Triple Trend 2.0 trading strategy and the highest high bar over the past 17 periods would be printed blue and the lowest low bar over the past 17 periods would print red. Any help would be greatly appreciated as I'm not a programmer and find the Indicator Wizard not to be user friendly for this purpose. Thanks in advance.

You can do this by adding a few lines to the Donchian Channel indicator of NinjaTrader. It is a small change only and will not take more than 5 or 10 minutes.

Best you post a Trade Navigator chart, so that we can imagine, how the final result should look like.

Highlight Bars


Thanks very much for your quick reply. I'm attaching several jpg images of the Trade Navigator set up screen. Also attached the chart image showing blue/red bars. The out put as I indicated simply prints the highest high bar from the last 17 periods blue and the lowest low bar from the last 17 periods red. Appreciate the help.

Still a bit confused

Fat Tails,

I'm looking at the ConchianChannel indicator on my chart but I'm not proficient enough in programming to know how to modify this indicator to print the HighestHigh over 17 periods Blue and Lowest Low over the past 17 periods red. I've asked the Ninja Support guys and they have tried to steer me towards the right place but again my lack of programming betrays my efforts. Any further suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks again in advance,
jwhtrades

Getting closer

Thanks again Fat Tails,

Attached is a side by side of the Triple Trend 2.0 setup on TradeNavigator and what I've been able to work out on NinjaTrader. Getting closer but no cigar. Can't get the Adapative Moving Average indicator to work correctly and the indicator you sent doesn't quite match the Trade Navigator built in Bar Hightlights for n bar periods. Not sure where to go from here. I've asked Ken, the developer to take a look at this and he's attempting to get a programmer to see what they can do. Thought this would be easier but there appears to be some built in bias in Trade Navigator vs NT.

Thanks,
jwhtrades

I think you have set up a false instrument in NinjaTrader. The indicator I have attached above is pretty simple and there is not much about to discuss. It plots a new 17 day high or a new 17 day low. But you need correct data.

What is the instrument you want to plot it for? What other indicators do you need?

Highlight bars


Hi Fat Tails,

Really appreciate you helping here. I'm using the EOD data from Kinetick so that might be skewing the results, however, I seem to be missing quite a few bars. In Trade Nav the new higher high paints a blue bar, the new lower low paints a red bar (as determined by user) and neutral bars are painted black. So, in Trade Nav, each bar is painted. Using the indicator you supplied, it appears I'm not getting the same results as in Trade Nav. Don't know why the disparity in the NT Adapative Moving Average vs. Trade Navigator MovAveA or Adaptive Moving Average either. The only indicator that I can can to trade cross platflorm is the MPS indicator, that one works. So this TripleTrend2.0 system uses the AMA 7 period, and the new higher high over the past 17 periods and the new lower low over the past 17 periods and the other bars are neutral as I indicated. The system was developed using Trade Navigator and the transition to NT doesn't appear to be all that smooth, to say the least.

Thanks,
jwhtrades
