Tried to install the indicator but got an error message (screenshot) and had a lot of work/trouble to get NT working again. In the end I needed to delete the NT directory completely, then installed the latest version anew and imported my last backup so I was back at the beginning.

I have the PriceActionSwing and PriceActionSwingOscillator from Poncho installed but not sure that caused the problem or that it was caused by another indicator?


Do a search on your Ninjatrader directory for PriceActionSwingV2. If you don't find it, you shouldn't have gotten that error. If you do, that's why - it already exists.

I too have Poncho's version installed and I wouldn't get anywhere if I had duplicate names installed.

If you're any good with Windows directories and copying files, you could also manually move PriceActionSwingV2.cs into the Indicators directory and try to build it. The error you get there will tell you what exactly is the problem.

Thanks a lot, compiling manually went good and it works like a charm now.

I think the other files (@ATR etc.) caused the problem. Errrors I got pointed that way. Don't know why, I selected replace during install (after making a copy of the original files in a subdirectory, maybe that was the problem?). But anyway, it's working now and it's lightning fast. Great job! and thanks again for your help.

A newer, much faster version of PAS for NT8 is available here: PriceActionSwingV2



I'd love to get everything working if there's anyone who can explain how it worked in NT version 7, with screenshots.



And if anyone else would like to make changes, feel free!

Will you be adding the plots for HL, LH, LL, HH, DT, DB and make them exportable for using in strategies, chart alerts, and market analyzer?

I removed those as actual plots. But they're still there as a data series and they're public, which means you can use them in strategies and anything else. If you get a new HH, then that value on that bar has a value, otherwise it's zero, for example.

Yes, I usually set the plots greater than 0 for true, my strategies get same error on compiling and I have to set "using priceactionswingbase" under declarations and edit elsewhere, anyway to compile strategies without getting error and having to edit when using Strategy Builder?

Do you have an old version? I think I first made this using an Addon but I thought I refactored it so we wouldn't have to. Maybe I did post that, don't remember.

I agree you shouldn't have to go: "using priceactionswingbase" and I'm not seeing why you would have to. Can you try getting the latest version? Because priceactionswingbase doesn't exist in the latest version.

Also, can you see if this will compile? It does for me. If it doesn't, try the latest version. If it still doesn't, let me know. (I've made some changes since the last post but I thought they were cosmetic changes...)
