We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

Coloring Indicators

I recently got Ninja Trader after using Metastock for 20 years. I would like to have my MACD and other indicators color coded for direction. I have looked at available videos and the help section for programming but my eyes start spinning. If I could get one example on how to do this I'm sure I could figure it out for other indicators. Anyone have a example template on how to do this? Cheers.
