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...

There is a tutorial on doing this, please follow the instructions:

How-to import indicators in NinjaTrader - Big Mike's Trading Forum

If you have any questions, it is best to use the "Search" function. For example a search for "NinjaTrader" & "import" would have led you to the tutorial.

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
