I'm just wondering if there is a indicator program that can display trend column for ninjatrader. I know multicharts already have this feature built in in their market scanner. It's like a quick display of the chart based on selected time intervals? Is it available to download for ninjatrader? Thanks
If you are talking about Market Analyzer, I am quite certain that feature is already there and can display any indicator value.

Need help? 1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first. 2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses. 3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make. 4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance. 5) Where to start as a trader?

Big Mike is right the Market Analyzer will allow you to set up your trend indicator.
There are several that are available if you search on futures.io (formerly BMT) under trend indicator and then see if it is a NinjaTrader(NT7) thread. Take a read and then if it looks good add it to your already existing NT7 indicators. To add an indicator to your Market Analyzer is tricky at first but basically is:
2. New Market Analyzer (if you already have one you can skip these two steps)
3. When you open the Market Analyzer it should have a default of a few columns already in place.
4. A right click on your Market Analyzer and select Column Add
5. For your column select indicator Double click to get it to add the indicator
6. The default is ADR (or whatever sorts to top of your indicators) You then go and change to a trending indicator you downloaded from futures.io (formerly BMT), or purchased elsewhere.
If you read through the NinjaTrader Manual you will find some great videos covering how to work with your market analyzer.
Also a quick click on NT7 Help Help will pull up your Online NT7 Manual...
A quick search of Trend Indicator came up with 22 results: (attached)
Market Analyzer brings up 35 results: (attached)
Highly suggest clicking the Video Library and watching how to setup and use Market analyzer there are five Videos covering the subject.
Also since NT7 is a bit different than other trading platforms the performance tips are a great read as well.
Wow Pictures upload soooo much faster than videos... OOPS that is a different subject...
Again read the performance tips, there are many things you can easily do to NT7 that will drag it down to a crawl if you don't know what each setting is doing to overall program performance.
