The bars look like HLC bars, where the close is represented by a dot.

With NinjaTrader you would create such bars by selecting the chart style "HiLo" and then adding a dot at the close. For adding the dots you can use a SMA(1) with the plotstyle set to "Dot".

The result looks similar to your original:

Please forgive my ignorance. Where can I find the SMA? How do I add a dot at the close?

Open a chart, right-click on the chart and select indicators.

Select the SMA in the upper left window and then click the "New" button.

Under indicator settings, change the "Period" to 1 and the PlotStyle to "Dot".
