Hey fellow traders,

I was wondering if someone on this board would be willing to take a look and possibly convert this indicator I have from mt4 to ninja. I took a look at it and my basic programming skills(html lol) cannot make much sense of it. Its from a strategy off of another forum and backtesting proves pretty profitable.

Here is the link to the strategy. I apologize in advance if Im not supposed to post links.

I apologize but unfortunately because I havent posted very much I cant post the actual indi. its on the first page and post in the link, and is labeled

Its a swing identifier much like zz Semifor etc etc. If anyone could assist me I would very much appreciate it!

The indicator / strategy cannot be accessed via the link, if you are not a registered member of that forum.

To make things easier, I would suggest that you post the MetaTrader code, a chart and explain the trading setups.

Just posting a "broken" link will not entice anyone to have a look.

Looks like filtered fractals. Just open the Bill Williams indicator and ignore the ones that aren't extremes. Fractals are great stop loss and take profit zones. They give an upper and lower value which is why EA's usually use them to draw trend lines. Combined with oscillator divergence this strat is probably pretty stable.

EDIT:Just found out how old this post is OP probably moved on but i'm gonna take this for a spin.

Following the original thread in babypip I see he used fractal points to draw trend line, trade was on trend line break and CCI extreme then Bollinger Band added to improve the odd then PSAR trailing then ATR trailing then HA bar then Renko bar. That was 1 year ago, who knows what it looks like now.
