Welcome to

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

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.

You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

Importing an indicator to Ninja Trader

How do I import an indicator into Ninja? Is it the same as importing from the NT Forum?

Goto "utilities -> import ninjascripts" and you select the zip file of your choice. It could be a strategy or an indicator.
You obviously download prior to that step the zip file from any website (formerly BMT) or others...

any help appreciated

The file is not corrupt. But you cannot import any file, when your NinjaTrader installation is not clean.

Please proceed as follows:

Edit any indicator file via Tools -> Edit NinjaScript -> Indicator and compile via F5. If it does not compile, delete all indicator files and assemblies that cause error messages.

Now importing any file should be possible.

In case that the problem persists, there may be a version conflict between two different versions of the anaADXVMA. In this case you would need to consult the NinjaTrader log and trace files to find the reason.

If you cannot fix it, please post in one of the NinjaTrader import error threads and add a screenshot, and I will respond.

When i went in to ninja script nothing was wrong? i really dont know what to do
