TSI (Trend-Strenght-Indicator) I found out for myself, that the TSI helps me in my trades. I am looking for braking highs and lows in the indicator. So i am wondering if somebody could help me with pimping the TSI. I have no idea how to do it. Is it possible to add a line (like the swing indicator) at the last high until it is broken and the same for the last low.
Thanks in advance

And attach a copy of the indicator, if it is not built-in to NinjaTrader. You might also manually mock-up a chart to make sure your request is clear. It sounds like you just want a horizontal line extension until pierced.

This should do it.

Inputs are:
Fast, Slow, ... for TSI
Strength ... number of bars required to form a swinghigh or swinglow
Barssincebreak ... number of bars since breaking a swinghigh or swinglow

The first bar to break a swinghigh/low plots the TSI line as Lime green (for up) or Red (for down).

Subsequent bars since breaking a swinghigh/low plot the TSI line as Green (for up) or Maroon (for down).

Great, this was it what i am looking for. Could you add 2 alertlines? one for the top and one for the bottom where you enter the numbers and select colour and so on?

I'm certain it is possible to include alerts, but that is not my area of expertise.

@fossil

I don't do alerts either ... repost in the thread Big Mike Suggested... you stand a better chance of getting a response there... good luck
