Trouble with ChannelThis and DoubleMA

The colors of DoubleMA and ChannelThis indicator disappears when NinjaTrader is closed (exited) and relaunched. I modified and recompiled the indicator but the colors would not stay. They all just turn white at the indicator settings.

What needs to be done toretain the colors.

With ChannelThis I forgot to serialize the colors. When I do another update to this indicator I will fix it.

DoubleMA should work afaik.

In either case, you can just change the default colors by editing the indicator, the colors are listed at the top under #variables.

You'll need to remove it from your chart and then re-add it after you compile. Then save your template or workspace and it should be fine.

Changing the colors, recompiling and following your instructions still did not work. I'll wait till you have an update

lolu, I'm not sure I understand. You're saying you changed the colors inside the .cs file (not on the chart), recompiled, removed the indicator from your chart, re-added it to your chart, and the colors were not the ones you directly programmed into the .cs file?

That's not likely

Let me know, I think perhaps you missed a step.

Mike

Yeah ! I changed the colors inside the ChannelThis.cs, recompiled, removed the indicator from my chart, etc; and the colors still disappeared. A curious look at the ChannelThis.cs files shows that apart from the the colors declaration in "#region Variable" the colors are also declared in "protected override void Initialize()" section. I also noticed that the color declarations in both sections do not correlate (i.e. Color.Maroon, Color.RoyalBlue, Color.Yellow in "#region Variables", but KnownColor.Maroon, KnownColor.DarkGray, KnownColor.RoyalBlue in "protected override void Initialize". In any case, I changed the colors in both sections and in the same pattern; and no SUCCESS.

lolu, there is a new version posted here that will fix it:

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.

ChannelThis now works. Meanwhile, Mike, could you please suggest MA1 and MA2 settings for Forex Trading for both ChannelThis and DoubleMAPaint. The default settings are MA1=3, MA2=14 (for ChannelThis) and MA1Period=34, MA2Period=34 (for DoubleMAPaint).

Sharky, could you post the indicators used in your setup, particularly the ones at the lower windows. I suspect one of them is the ECO2; and the other looks like the FXFreedomBars indicator on MetaTrader 4.

lolu,

Glad to hear it!

Here are some of sharky's settings:

I don't trade forex and don't use DoubleMA or ChannelThis. But I know that many others here do, so I hope they can help with some recommended settings for you. If you don't get some answers, try the chatbox as well.
